Classic Car Overview
2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am In 1992 the Pontiac division of GM changed its decade old theme line from We Build Excitement to We are Driving Excitement. This new campaign shifted emphasis from overall branding to supporting individual models. The common denominator defining Pontiac as a brand since 1982 is the notion that Pontiac both symbolized and actualized excitement. For consignment a chance to put yourself in the seat where you will be driving excitement! This in the form of a 1 owner 2002 Firebird Trans Am Collector Edition. A mere 2,391 units were produced (1,396 manual, 995 automatic) and this one is a completely stock and well maintained vehicle with 27,395 actual miles clocked. A beautiful coat of collector yellow with ebony trim combination, and Im excited! Exterior Making use of many a curvaceous surface, this car appears to be moving when standing still. From its shapely integrated bumper with fog lights, turn signals and air intakes, it seamlessly moves into the hood. Up here we are greeted with more air intakes, bulbous hidden headlights and a dual cowl hood scoop complete with dual screaming chickens and licking flames heading towards the windshield in multiple shades of gray. Speaking of the windshield it has a major swept back rake to it and adds to the Rubensesque line when viewed from the sides. More air intakes, good gaps and some sweeping graphics are seen here. The large black B pillar supports a swept back curved rear window, and this makes its way under an integrated tail spoiler. More round design on the rear honeycombed taillights, and another curved integrated bumper and we have a thing of undulating collector yellow beauty. Interior Popping off the smoked glass T tops we can venture inside to a world of more curved surfaces in the form of black leather covered power bucket seats up front and a dual bucket setup in the rear. All this leather is in good condition showing slight wear on the bolster areas. The buckets flank a sweeping forward black console which houses a large glovebox/armrest and the Hurst shifter. The undulating dash in black houses the instrument panel, a banging Delco radio/12-Disc CD player (trunk mounted) with equalizer and 10 Monsoon speakers strategically placed to rock your world. This radio can be controlled by the steering wheel so you can continue your cruise while changing the tunes. Nice black carpet covers the floors. Drivetrain With Ram Air and a performance handling package, this healthy mill can take you down the road at exciting speed. Rated at 350 cubes, this LS1 with electronic fuel injection, and a T56 6-speed manual transmission throwing power back to a RPO coded GU6 3.42 posi rear axle will have you up to speed in no time. Undercarriage Save for some usual surface rust on uncoated suspension parts, it could be considered factory underneath, with great structural integrity, super clean floor pans, and a straight frame. A low restriction exhaust, traction control, independent front and torque arm rear suspension, and power disc brakes all around. Im now past excitement nearly to the point of delirium. Drive-Ability Turning the key will ignite the candles immediately. This car has plenty of power, rides very nicely, and has an ergonomically comfortable interior setup for the driver.
