    04 WRX vs. Old School Firebird

    I was just casually driving and this old school firebird stopped at the light next to me, so of course I rev a few times because I noticed the multitude of gauges on his door frame. The light turns green, and he takes off. I'm slow getting into 1st, but after I got into first and shifted to 2nd....I believe the term I'm looking for is GAME OVER! I whipped him pretty good. Like 30 seconds after that a cop drove past...talk about sketchy!

    Later that day I did 125 MPH on a back road. I had it in 3rd gear pinned coming out of an "L" style turn and a baby turn after that. Let's just say it was retardedly fast...

    I'm in love with my car...

    nice kill. +1 for being safe. It only takes a small mistake and you and your rex could be gone forever.

    I drove a 1977 trans am before, one of the slowest cars that I have driven, no joke.
    Good Kill.

    Define "old school". The late 70's were the dark days for the US automakers. Even the Corvette had < 200 crank HP.

    He's from the late 80s himself so anything from the 70s is probably prehistoric from his point of view

    I've always wanted a Trans Am. You know the Smokey and the bandit style one with the T-tops and the screaming chicken on the hood. I don't care if its slow I want one, it's so tacky it's cool.

    How do those take to mods? I've always considered picking up one on the cheap and then modding the hell out of it, but I don't know if it would be worth it or not.

    Still though, I can easily imagine cruising down the road with the Smokey and the Bandit theme song blasting on the radio...

    Depends on exactly what year you're looking at, what state you're in (emissions regulations), and how you feel about certain mods.

    The 1970-1973 cars were pretty decent off the showroom floor-I'd expect a T/A to run the 1/4 in the mid-low 14s stock, maybe a tib faster, on modern rubber. After 73 power went into the toilet pretty quick, and by 1977 or so they weren't even using Pontiac engines anymore (which is a pity, because the Pontiac V8 is a damn good engine), so if you want a quick '77+ car, your best bet is to either drop in an older Pontiac 400 or 455, or (if you can stomach the idea of a Chevy engine in anything other than a Chevy, which I can't) an LSx engine with a 6spd.

    Anything from like the 80's or early 90's in old school for me. Let's just say it was starting to rust.... alot.
