We all know that big horsepower and small price adds up to lots of fun, but few cars delivered the bang for the buck of the late-model F-body. This 2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am convertible is one of those rare specimens and shows just 14,928 miles (WOW!), so you know it was never a daily driver. If you missed your chance twenty years ago, here it is again!
There\'s no mistaking the fourth-generation Trans Am, with its twin nostrils force-feeding the barking LS1 V8 underneath. Finished in slick Bright Silver Metallic, which is still one of the best colors for a Trans Am, it looks like a predator even after all these years. Trademark round fog lights, black Trans Am badges on the lower doors, the trademark honeycomb taillights help identify what was ultimately a very sophisticated package. There\'s also a large integrated wing out back, plenty of scoops, flares, and vents in traditional T/A fashion, plus a top that goes down and instantly turns this baby into an open-air cruiser.
Black leather buckets are the perfect choice for this silver bullet, and they naturally remain well preserved in this low-mile Trans Am. The supportive bucket seats are both grippy in the corners and comfortable for all-day drives. Usually, these cars start to show wear on the driver\'s bolster, and although there are some minor comfort marks it\'s clear that someone was exceptionally careful whenever they got in and out of the car, because it\'s still quite nice. Carpets, door panels, and the dash are great, and it appears that the back seat has never been used. All 2002 Trans Ams had round A/C vents and orange lighting on the dash, giving it a very high-tech look. And all Trans Ams came only one way: loaded. That means A/C, power windows, power locks, cruise control, traction control, ABS, and power seats, plus keyless entry. Everything works as it should on this one-heck, even the floor mats look like they were just installed recently. A powerful Pontiac Monsoon AM/FM/CD stereo with equalizer sounds awesome, even at full bore with the top down, but at that point you\'ll probably want to enjoy the V8\'s song anyway. And speaking of that convertible top, it\'s black canvas with a clear glass rear window and it is brand, spanking new.
The 5.7L LS1 V8 engine became famous overnight, and anyone who worried about the passing of the small block torch need not have been concerned. Its aluminum construction shaved precious pounds from the nose of the car, while it cranked out more power than any small block in history. Almost completely untouched, the engine bay of this car is like an anatomy textbook for future restorers, with original markings, fasteners, and decals in 100% factory fresh condition. Even the intake and exhaust system is bone-stock, and the soundtrack is fantastic. The 4-speed automatic snaps off quick shifts, but this is still a great cruiser and the LS1 can pull down more than 20 MPG on the highway (if you can somehow manage to keep your heavy foot out of it).
History tells us that the cars that collectors cherish are often the last ones built and the lowest mileage, so here\'s your second chance. Call today!
