1968 Pontiac Firebird vs 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am - Generation Gap: Firebirds
Cast your vote here:
In this episode of Generation Gap the guys compare Firebirds: old vs. new.
Davin brought a classic 1968 Pontiac Firebird equipped with a 350-CID V-8
boasting 320 hp. Matt, on the other hand, had a bit of a trick up his
sleeve bringing a 2010 Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Trans Am
modified to the nines to look and perform like a modern Firebird. Its 455
CID and 655 hp are some impressive numbers, but how will it be on the road?
Generation Gap appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend youtube
