"Up in age so decided I needed to experience driving a fun car once more. Glad I purchased this car. It is fun to drive and handles really good. Had dual exhausts installed and it sound really awesome. Car has remained in good condition thanks to my love and care for it. The car was not really taken care of before I purchased it. Several people have approached me and offered to take it off of my hands. Refuse to sell my fun toy. If you can find one, buy it. It is a beautiful car and fun to drive."

drives well and holds well to road.

"i have had the car for a year and have not had any mechanical trouble so far. i have put it in the ditch do to hydroplaning an despite severe cosmetic damage no damage was found mechanically. car is prone to scrubbing the pavement do to low ground clearance.if buying one check t-top seals for any leaking mine had to have them replaced but all in all is a fun and reliable car to drive."

"I got the car from a good friend of mine who was selling it So I bought it The engine is rebuild Its only petty things wrong with the Firebird,The lights come on and off but they just don't let down.My Powerwindow And power locks And the horn Do not work Because I did not replace the fuses and I want to say My AC compressor went out but it still blow and the muffler gotta get welded back on but The car moves It runs It would get you from A too B,It's a new fuel pump on it to i replace Some of the old hoses With some new ones..Its a great car but I'm not a big fan of two doors but everything else is good clean title..."

"This is my third Firebird. If they were still being made I would buy a new one. I must say this is a very reliable car mechanically. If you check this car regularly this car will never let you down. The one I had before the 1999 was a 1984. It had approx 400,000 miles when I sold it and it was still running good."

Pros: "Styling, handling, value for the money, 6 speed"

Cons: "Heavy clutch, opt for a short throw transmission."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This is a sports car you can afford. Styling and stance is exceptional. Much lower than current Camaro. Mine has an OE upgraded suspension and 3:42 rear axle. There are many options available for personalizing security settings, entry codes, and other things. AND after 18 years, I just found out the rear seat back folds down, and it's all upholstered. With it down, there is a different feel and look to the car. I really like this option immensely."
