Hello all. I am an avid f-body fan. I love camaros and firebirds. My first V-8 muscle was an 84 Trans Am (RIP totaled twice by stupid drivers). Later I bought a 96 Camaro Rs Y87 performance model. It satisfied me for a summer but I craved more power. So I traded it for an 87 IROC Z. One of my dream cars. Well the Barrack Obama syndrome came in place and fell on hard times and my baby went to a new owner. So as soon as permitted by my wife (so she thinks) I was on the hunt again. She found 3 firebirds at a local dealer so we went to look at them. First the test drive of the one she wanted. A 98 black firebird, clean 1 owner, 100k on the clock. It was a pretty car, but the accelerator bottomed out before my foot wanted to. So on to the next one. A green and gold 94 LT1 6 speed. 175k on the clock but rebuilt motor and tranny with 2 stage clutch and nice sounding exhaust. Nice looks and very nice wheels. And my favorite color. This one got me excited, but the mileage on the clock put it on the side line. So on to the next. A white 95 Trans Am 6 speed. By this time the sales guy was looking for a racing harness because I told him that if I am going to buy a car from him I want to see that it will run hard. So off I went. Turn the key and the rumble of the exhaust told me headers and a mild cam under the hood. So there is the bait!!! 90k on the clock...there is the line. 100 MPH with the sales guy screaming slow down...sinker. So I am the proud owner of a 95 White trans Am T-tops. Hooker super comp headers, Borg Warner 6 speed tranny, 3.42 posi rear, K&N CAI, with what seems to be a mild cam. Black leather interior in decent shape. Usual drivers seat wear.

Anyway that is how I came to own my present toy / daily driver.
