1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 5.0 Litre 4 speed - SOLD!
As you probably know, the 3rd generation of Firebirds took flight in 1982
with 3 models including the Trans Am which is the high performance Firebird
and was completely restyled, more aerodynamic and that year voted one of
the 12 "Best Cars in the World" and also won "Best Sports GT Category in
it's price range".
This 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is a great strong running car.
Equipped with a 5.0 Litre V-8 OHV, 4 speed, it has approximately 88K miles.
Although the paint is a little weak, the interior is very good, the body
is straight and it runs GREAT!
There are also T-Tops, the rear end has been replaced with a Camaro 5-speed posi-traction rear
end, the power steering pump was rebuilt, the radiator was replaced, the
window weather stripping on doors was replaced, there are new front tires,
the side shifting plate on transmission was repaired and inspected (Stock
Saginaw) and of course the hatchback (which has new cylinders), turbo wheel covers, dual mirrors, rear deck
spoiler, heavier suspension package that includes a "quicker" steering
ratio, and full instrumentation including speedometer, trip odometer,
tachometers, gauges for oil pressure, voltage, fuel level and coolant temp,
etc. With the seats laid down, there is also a lot of room for your gear.
Don't miss your opportunity to own this great runner!
This car is in the greater Portland, OR area and is shown by appointment.

Trans Am Project Update - 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Third Gen
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
Many of you have been asking for an update on our Trans Am project, so we
thought we better get one done. We weren't really prepared to do it, so
the car isn't as clean as it should be. We have a lot of changes planned
for the Trans Am and we'll do our best to keep you posted about the
progress. Thought I'd go ahead and throw in a flyby and some burnout
footage, just to make it a little more interesting. Thanks for watching!

Two birds singing
My 91 Trans Am and a friend's 87 Firebird Formula singing along haha. My
'vert has the 305 TPI (LB9) engine with a 3 inch Magnaflow catback and the
Formy has a carbed 305 with a Flowmaster system I think. Looks like the
Formy won in the loud-department lol, AND it's driven by a chick....
