1998 Pontiac Firebird (The 'Bird)

Last updated Sep 26, 2009  

Photo of a 1998 Pontiac Firebird (The 'Bird)


Purchased November 11, 2003 with 44,000 miles, this is my first car. It's been mainly a weekend driver for about 5 years, now with 58,000 on the clock. It is bear-bones - power nothing! I like the lack of power accessories because it reminds me of the old cars. The only option is T-tops and the CD player. It has the 5-speed standard transmission. It lives on Mobil 1 oil only, 5-30 in the winter and 10-30 the rest of the year. It is completely stock and that's the way it's staying.

It's not a particularly fast bird, but it's my pride and joy, and it looks just as good as any other bird... or almost any other.

I'd like to own a Firebird Firehawk as a show car once I have the money for it and a nice garage to keep it in. That's still going to be some time for now. I love all Firebirds in general, 1967 - 2002.
