Default A new Firebird T/A!?

These are modeled after the two best body styles in my opinion





Here is the write-up on the white Lingenfelter

The Camaro looks good, but I just don't care for the TA with that body style. The TA needs to be lower and sleeker. The TA looks better as a sports car then a muscle car.

It looks mean, but chunky. I agree that the Camaro looks better.

I think the black T/A is the most fitting. The white one is chunky and looks odd

Too "chunky" is a good word for it. Some things/body lines have a stopping point and the designer kept going. To bad it'* just a rich boy'* "kit" car. Pontiac is D*E*A*D. Take a deep breath, Sigh, D*E*A*D.

The custom aluminum 455 is a bit more than a facelift. LOL.
