    Hi all, New gal from Long Island,NY

    I dig the rims, good look for that car, also I loved that style ram air hood much more than the huge nostril later year ones
  2. I get annoyed when on TV shows they see a 80s camaro and are like "driver was spotted in a maroon late model sedan" its not a sedan and I dont know what late model even means, its a freakin camaro wake up and live in the USA!
  3. Alot of people, even Ebay list the Trans Am as a separate model from the Firebird when really it was just a trim level. Whats really annoying is when people list a car as a Formula Trans AM, theres no such thing its one or the other.

    The G5 was a complete waste of space in the lineup, at least with most of the rebadged/shared platform cars they at least attempted to make them different, there's literally 6-7 pieces on the entire car that are different from the cobalt and about half of them are logos G8 will always be remembered as "the last pontiac" even though its roots are not of this continent.
  5. Ha I forgot the Vibe, maybe because its a Toyota

    Pretty impressive that you were able to run a 13.9 1/4 mile pass with a HP # that low. given the weight of the car I'd venture to say your making a bit more power than that. Heck even with my cobalt making almost 300 to the ground I only got a best of 13.7, could be I suck at driving alot as well.

    My latest investment that I seem to love haha

    That was the first car I ever drove. My dad had the very first sport coupe in the area. The suspension in that car was AMAZING.

    I feel like I've sold my soul. The Dirty Bird is gone, it just left a few minutes ago. I keep telling myself it was the right thing to do to try to get out of debt but it doesnt feel that way.

    The Iron Duke may have been the last motor that Pontiac made from the ground up however it is not the last engine they built or had development on. Not many know this but the 89 Turbo Trans Am engine while it is assumed as being 100% Buick thats not completely true, let me explain. In 1987 when the Grand National ceased being made by Buick they had 2500 3.8 Turbo V6 engines in a warehouse. Pontiac was looking to do something special for the 20th Anniversary of the Trans Am. All aluminum V8s were experimented with but finally they choose the Buick Turbo. When the engine was installed it did not fit the exhaust manifolds hit the strut towers so the cylinder heads were replaced with those from a FWD 3800. These heads flowed better than those used in the Buick Turbo engine and also raised the compression much higher. To compensate and bring the compression back down the pistons were replaced. Also a cross drilled crank was used for better lubrication and a different prom chip was used for higher boost. Also the turbo was changed for one with a slightly bigger compressor wheel. In short all of this work was done specifically by the Pontiac Motor Division, so what started as a buick, ended as a high performance Pontiac engine. To my knowledge this is the last engine they did any development on.
