Hey man, I love the way this car looks. If this would have been the Transam, It just might could have put Pontiac to the point where they can be manageable again & not go out of business.

i approve. this looks everything like what a firebird would look like. if you guys think this is ricey, then i assume you think all the firebirds look ricey. they were all supposed to look dramatic and exaggerated. and the guy who said this is just a front end and back end mod, well thats what all firebirds were to the camaro. and one guy posted how he doesnt like the rounded front end. well that resembles alot from the past firebirds. i think this is the best looking "5th gen firebird" so far

You wouldn't pay 600k. It would be 60k. So what mods does it have under the hood if any?

Under the shaker hood you mean? XD

I find it interesting how they play with their own words "in no way affiliated with any retro firebird or trans am aftermarket body kit" well now see if the car was a GM Firebird/Trans Am concept car, then it wouldnt be a kit would it? >=} muahaha

I really hope they do make it, even if it stays a Firebreather and not Firebird (most likely because it would not be built by Pontiac and so would not be a Firebird but closely related under a new sub-division) Id like them to change the rear end a little im not a huge fan of it but it works i guess, im a huge fan of the front end though and i LOOOOVE the shaker hood! oh yeah! haha, id definatly buy it if it was made

I like how its got these "retro" aspects too it but its not a completely retro car, like its got the hints here and there like the split honey-comb grill and the shaker hood (though admittidly modified somewhat) it has those hints but they didnt just out-right take a 77' T/A or 71' T/A and try to fuse it to a 2010 Camaro frame and make a T/A out of it they took the time to preserve the heritage here and there, the real birthmarks of the T/A but other than that they decided to go a new route on everything, idk thats just my oppinion anyways, i think they did a spectacular job with it and i hope it goes into production =)

Love it. I would like to get the front end and lights to start any idea if that's going to be available?

It would be great if they came out with a K.I.T.T version. I thought the mustang they used in the new knight riderwas alright, but we all know the real K.I.T.T wasnt a mustang....

I like how they put just enough there to give the feeling but didnt take it over-board, like the 77' T/A body-kit that was shown at SEMA, i thought it was okay, but the spoiler was WAY overboard, it was almost comical how rediculously huge that thing was, im glad they went their own way with the spoiler on this. Also i think the rims are a little lacking, it should have more menacing rims, and for once i dont think just straight-brute muscle car rims would be best xD, id suggest American Racing Phantoms off the top of my head. Im up in the air between the tail lights, they're unique which is cool but im wondering what else they could do with it, like maybe a wrap-around design?

Oh, and an afterthought i forgot to add, i love the black and red scheme, i almost wish they would have put the new twin-V logo on the hood like the old bird, but i definatly like the red, i think red looks the best as an accent to lots of black and personally im glad they didnt go with the monotonous gold accent scheme, not to say its [I]bad[I] i mean i love the Bandits but by now its just like "okay, not every T/A needs to be hark back to that piece of heritage" so im glad they went in a slightly different direction there and personally i like the color scheme better

(also as a new suggestion, id like to throw out the ASA AR9 rims, check it out)

Meh..!

I'm not that crazy about it. I like the subtle detail on the front, but otherwise I have seen other Firebird conversion kits that look nicer to me.

Just sayin'... !
