About “6 shooter”

this is my 1998 pontiac firebird that I bought off a relative for $1000. IT has a salvaged title and was restored but the person who did it sucked so as you can see in the pictures the body lines don't match up. minor damage but I am already wet sanding the coats of primer in the problem areas of the car and about to repaint it.

About “The "GT"”

Well, this is the car that Ford should have built. Its a 1997 Thunderbird with a 4.6 SOHC V8. Its been upgraded with 17" Cobra R wheels, '89 Supercoupe sway bars, Eibach Springs, and KYB shocks. Under the hood the aforementioned 4.6 V8 upgraded with PI Heads, cams, and intake, underdrive pullies, ported and polished 04 Mustang TB and plenum and 80mm Lightning MAF meter. Controlling it all is an SCT chip programmed by Lonnie Doll at BlueOvalChips.com. (great guy!) The tranny is the stock 4R70W with a modified valve body (J-Mod). The rear is a limited slip 3.27 for now. Connecting everything to the ground is a set of 255/50/17 Fuzion ZRi's. The stripe and other decals were made for me by Corey Wright of "The Wright Signs". The interior has a nice Sony Stereo, and a Taurus SHO gauge cluster (150mph speedo) with custom gauge faces by Scott Hrbcek
