2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (Bad bird)
Last updated Jun 12, 2008
In 2000 I realized I needed something newer to date in. At the time I was seeing someone who just wasn't into "old cars"and was inhot pursuit so I decided it was time for something new. My son then 21 suggested i finish the collection by buying the 2000 . I loved the commercial and called my bro to help me get a decent deal at a nearby Pontiac dealer ( he was at the Cadillac store). Struck the deal, got a loan thru the same credit union I had bought my first T/A (the 75), and ordered my 2000. I was just as excited the day my sales rep called me to tell me my car had arrived as when I went to pick up the 75! Been driving fairly fast cars all my life But What a Beast this one is. Had to hone my technique all over again. Went to kick it at an intersection to go left and wound up going in the opposite direction when I got her back under control. What a kick in the pants... Have great respect for the factory set up. Still love taht on the highway she'll set 28mph and turn 13's in the qtr mile. ( had to try!) lousy driver + great car+ 13.9 at Atlanta Dragway 1st time out. Since then babyed her-- til this years YOE where I had her around 110mph on the backstretch at Road Atlanta! And boy will she corner. GM got everything right on its 4 th try!
