2010 Trans Am Firehawk Tribute
Between 1996 and 2002 the Firehawk Trans Am set a new mark for style and performance. These highly collectable Pontiacs quickly became a favorite among Trans Am enthusiasts. On the eve of production of the Kevin Morgan designed and licensed Trans Am, Morgan and Trans Am Depot were commissioned to build their version of the Firehawk using their new production design. The owner of this 2010 Trans Am Firehawk has the largest collection of Firehawks in existence and a muscle car collection of over 300 show cars. The challenge given to Morgan and Trans Am Depot was to design and build a one-off "Firehawk" that would respectively honor and pay tribute to both the Firehawk name and legacy.

If you review our sold inventory, you'll see quite a few late Firehawks on the list. Low-mileage examples that have been expertly maintained typically sell within days—they're incredibly popular, even nearly ten years after production ended. Sometimes, however, we get truly exceptional cars, and this supercharged Firehawk with just 7228 original miles certainly qualifies. Fast, black, and fully documented, this is the Firehawk to own if you're looking for the ultimate street brawler.
With a pile of receipts for all the work, there's a good $15,000 invested in getting this car to run as well as it does. The stock LS1 is augmented by a ProCharger Supercharger installed by Hutter Performance in Chardon, Ohio. The blower lives down low in the engine bay, and feeds an air-to-air Intercooler up top that force feeds the engine cool, pressurized air. Dyno sheets that accompany the car peg the output at an impressive 454 rear-wheel horsepower. The rest of the engine bay is largely stock but beautifully maintained, with no signs of abuse or damage, and certainly no corrosion from being driven in foul weather. This car has been a toy from day one.
In 2002, a vast majority of Firehawks were equipped with 6-speed manuals, but this one carries a 4-speed automatic, and is one of only 489 cars so equipped, and one of only 364 Trans Am Firehawks with an automatic, so it's a very rare piece. While some will scoff at the automatic, combined with the Supercharger, it makes for a very potent street car that's flat-out deadly in bracket racing at the track. This car also includes the optional Bilstein Ultra Performance Suspension Package, which really sharpens up the Firehawk's reflexes on the street. Wheels are optional Firehawk chrome alloys wearing Drag Radials.
Now back to that Ebony Black bodywork—it's as nice as any 9-year-old car we've ever seen. The paint is in excellent condition, and I'd be surprised if this car has spent any significant time in the rain. In addition to the standard Trans Am and Firehawk graphics, including the Firehawk monogram on the doors, this one has a set of electric blue stripes from Phoenix Graphix, which really sets it apart. This Firehawk also carries the optional rear deck lid spoiler, which makes the car seem longer and lower than the standard Trans Am piece.
The black leather interior is equally well preserved, although it does sport a few noteworthy upgrades. The first thing you'll notice are the A-pillar mounted Auto Meter gauges for Boost and fuel pressure; critical if you're going to run a Supercharger. The deeply sculpted black leather seats are in excellent condition and snow almost no wear, despite being almost a decade old. Jim Wangers, the legendary Pontiac advertising executive, has personally signed the passenger side sun visor on this car, and was obviously impressed by the build quality and overall condition of this car.

2001 Formula Stock motor doing wheelie
Took my 2001 Formula to the track, its got an SS4000 converter, QA1 Suspension, and 3.73 gears. I broke two 10 bolts in 2 weeks, so I put a Moser 12 bolt in it. Suspensions is set up amazing, and for a stock motor, stock manifolds and stock cats, its running very well, and pulling the tire(s?) about 5" for 8 ft or so.
