I think they did have a Viper commercial when it first came out. I remember seeing a red RT/10 with the side exhaust pipes just driving around a twisty road.

Maybe its because I'm a Pontiac fan but I really think the Firehawk or the Firebird Trans Am has the look of an exotic. It looks really aggressive and curvy. But thats about as far as it goes, wild looks. Doesn't match up to the other parts of an exotic. aka expensive, huge power, etc.

Just found one of the first Firehawk models made. Used to come with 365 hp 400 lbs torque. Take a look at this thing, roll cage and all came straight from the factory.

The car in my opinion is one of the uglier 3rd gen bodystyles. But I would say the power makes up for it.
6 speed I believe.

God---that is way, way ugly. Is the a cable TV box or the upper intake in the engine bay?

01-18-2003, 07:53 PM
LOL. Yes, that is one ugly ugly Pontiac. Haha, I can't look at that engine without laughing. :silly2:

not a very good looking car at all, but to be honest it looks like most american cars of that type to me... what year was this thing made anyway

01-19-2003, 11:33 AM
Haha its a pizza box man. Just an example of how companies were struggling trying to make a good emissions legal engine with fuel injection. It's a car certainly not to fuck with but yeah it is hideous. This thing is very capable of dusting C5's.

I don't know what year they first made the Firehawk but it is the 91-92 style Firebird. Thank god it improved to this.

hey devil what´s that for a nice car... the upper black one?

01-19-2003, 12:39 PM
to be honest the new and improved one, as you put it, looks just as horrendous to me... its a comic book of a car.. it looks like a fourteen year old designed it, no offence... what with all its bulges and scoops... it looks pretty funny but i wouldnt wanna be seen dead in it

01-19-2003, 12:48 PM
From what you said when I first posted it I thought you liked it. Thats ok though not everyone is going to like the way it looks. To me it looks like a bird, which would fits the name Firebird well.

Menu the black car I just posted is a Pontiac Firehawk. Its an improved version of the Firebird Trans Am that Pontiac makes. 345 hp V8. Go to the page before this to see other pictures of the Firehawk and Firebird.

interestingly enough, going to the SLP webiste shows that any: V87X Trans Am Coupe, V67X Trans Am Convertible, or V87X with W66 Formula Option, any firebird except a V6 can get the firehawk option it. According to their website----its an extra $4,500 for the firehawk option. So now the record is straight---its not an actual production car---its an option available to the standard V8 birds.

I didn't know they made it an option for the V6. I guess they just give it the ram air hood and exhaust like the rest. I don't know who makes it but there is a Firebird called Mark III that is just the V6 with ram air. They also give it a triangular like stripe at the bottom of each door, kind of cool.

The new viper is a perfect example of what happens when you let the Japanese guy who designs camries design a muscle car - it looks aweful.

01-19-2003, 06:57 PM
What the hell are you talking about?!?!? The new Viper is a great looking, and badass, body style. You have pretty bad taste in cars if you think they are ugly.

01-19-2003, 07:31 PM
you and I happen to have similar tastes.

:greenchai :badass:

01-19-2003, 10:01 PM
Oh I wouldn't go as far as to say that.

02-12-2003, 06:54 AM
I don't care what some of you think about this, comming from a country that has produced such legends as the Austin Alegro this new version of the Viper looks Ok to me. If someone was giving them away I wouldnt say no!:) :)

02-12-2003, 03:51 PM

02-13-2003, 12:41 AM
