    Convertible Firebird vs WRX

    ha!

    well, last night coming from a restaurant with my fiancee stopped at a light and this punk kid in a dirty white convert. firebird thought it would be cool to race me. He starts revving, etc and light goes green and he explodes out!

    i casually accelerate and ignore him.

    Then he sticks with me and keeps popping his clutch at about 45 mph trying to chirp his tires or something.

    i still ignored him.

    So all you are probably asking, why didn't I spank him down?

    Well, it was night...i don't want a ticket (lots of cop cars on this one street) and my fiancee was in the car. I wasn't about to do some stupid street race and get pulled over or worse. No way. Not worth it.

    Anyhoo, if i was by myself maybe...just maybe..

    stay safe everyone!

    Hey, at least i feel somewhat good that some big V8 car wanted to challenge me hehehe

    Besides the fact that if it was just a Firebird (and not a Trans Am), he had no chance. V6.

    Yeah, a TransAm IS a Firebird. Firebird is the model name and Trans Am refers to the 'trim' level. There are 3 trim levels; Base, Formula, and Trans Am.

    As mhoward1 pointed out, both the Formula and the Trans Am are LS1s. The Base is not completely underpowered either - that V6 is specced at 200HP.

    Yes, I know. However when you see a Firebird Trans Am from the rear, it says Trans Am. Firebird says Firebird and I'm not sure about the Formulas. I do know the Formula says "Formula" on the side and doesn't it also have a different hood. Still a discontinued F body Mullet racer.

    yeah..i'm not super sure which one this was. He was besides me and it was night. Plus i always get confused on Camaro's, Firebirds, TransAms, etc. They all look the same to me.

    hehehe

    UVAWRX, you're right..i did win when I my fiancee said yes. Now only 189 days left till we get married.....
