About “02 HAWK #172”

2002 Trans Am Firehawk #172 of 1501. Loaded with every option avalible. I have changed the air lid to a Whisper lid and use a K&N filter with it. I have also installed the SLP Loudmouth exhaust from the Y-pipe back. The T-Tops have been sandblasted with a Pheonix as well as the back glass. The top of the windshild is sandblasted with the Firehawk word Logo. I have won numerous awards with this car at car shows, big and small. I have raced it a few times but not much. My wife has the fastest time in it with a 13.29 sec. but I have the fastest speed in a quater mile at 102.94 mph. It may not be the quickest car on the street but it sure is one of the best looking ones out there, of course that is just my opinon. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

About “The Monte”

I bought this car back on March 22, 2007 with 76,000 miles on it. It was one of the best lookin cars on the lot and i was absolutley obsessed with it. I traded my old 1998 Monte Carlo LS for it, they gave me $1,500 for it. It didn't take long for the mod bug to hit me, and by the time summer hit, it was far from stock.

Over the summer it sat in a garage with a friends dad's Corvette, as i had to leave for the Army for 4 months. When i got back, i got my military bonus and 99% of that money i had decided was going into the car, and sure enough it did.
