This 1998 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Mecham is a powerful specialty machine from a company that\'s both known for its history and rarity. So while you\'ll love the T-tops style and loaded nature, it\'s really all that extra power from the LS1 V8 that makes this irresistible.

If you love Pontiac, then you know the name Mecham. They were an Arizona Pontiac dealer that loved their cars so much that they made even hotter versions of Firebirds. With the 2nd gen cars you\'d know them as DKM Macho, but when it came to these final years, the Mecham name was out front. There are plenty of details that make this one stand out. You have an upgraded hood bird done in a terrific metallic blue to remind us of the original Trans Am. There\'s also the big Mecham windshield banner, wide dual exhaust tips, and ROH five-spoke alloys. Plus, Mecham had their own version of the T/A\'s spoiler that made it even wilder. This example has relatively low mileage where the (likely) original white finish shows enjoyment while looking attractive for its age. And the model year is quite important because it has passed the quarter-century milestone this year. So you have a special build that\'s also now eligible for vintage car plates and registration in many states.

The interior is all about delivering a loaded driver\'s car. The front bucket seats are specially contoured to give you a great driver\'s feeling. And yours even power adjusts for the right driver\'s feeling. It\'s part of a full package that includes the sports steering wheel, fingertip controls, tilt column, and orange-faced gauges that really engage the driver. It\'s also quite comfortable with features like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, power mirrors, cruise control, dual airbags, ABS, and a premium Monsoon AM/FM/CD stereo. And there\'s just something awesome about taking out the T-tops and hearing the special V8 sing.

The Mecham/DKM legend was built by what\'s under the hood, and 1998 was the ideal year to get a power car from them. This was the debut year of the 5.7-liter LS1 fuel-injected V8 for the Trans Am. This one takes it to a new level with an upgraded throttle body, AFR aluminum heads, a Mecham performance air intake, and headers. Plus, the upgraded cam makes for a terrific way to increase the power and rumble of the total package. There are also good supporting compomers, like an aluminum radiator, a newer battery, and a Mecham strut tower brace. It all makes for a powerful car that also was built to be a proper driver. That\'s why you also have the 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission. It is built strong to be good at handling the extra power, and it also can just smoothly shift you into overdrive comfort. And features like power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and upgraded rotors make it an all-around solid driver.

There are plenty of mainstream details that you could upgrade, including new tires, a new dash pad, or reupholstering the driver\'s seat. But those are the little things compared to the rarity and fun that comes from a powerful Pontiac that carries the Mecham name. So if you\'re a true fan, you know you can\'t miss this deal.
