    That’s a Trans Am, Pontiac never called them Firebird Trans Ams which technically they are, there was the firebird, firebird formula and trans am in that era.

    So please don’t call a trans am a firebird.

    A few years back I thought about getting a starion and updating it with new tech turbos and fuel management etc for a fun beater daily to keep miles off my f250

    There were a shitload of them available in the Dallas area. Apparently the car of choice for rich wives. They listed at $88,000 new and I was looking at around $17,000 with ridiculously low miles. I knew something was up and called up a dealer in Richardson (IIRC) and he gave me the scoop (shitty reliability, expensive to maintain, mostly driven by chicks).

    I've had a few XJs, still have a 92 and it's still running great.

    That's exactly why I'd go with the XJ, they're built like a tank.

    I own two cars from the 80s. A 1988 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 which I'm trying to sell, got a guy coming to look at it tonight and a 1981 Chevy Monte Carlo with a built 355.

    Love tons of stuff from the 80s like other people have posted. I would love a chevy square body 4x4, got a soft spot for suburbans especially. Like the 80s jeep gran cherokees, gm gbodys like my monte carlo/grand national/gnx/cutlass/regal/malibu, foxbody mustangs, monzas, etc. I'm sure there's some that I'm forgetting.

    I thought a Back to The Future reference would happen before a Knight Rider reference would.
    What's the movie where the cars start killing people?
