Ram AirHead: 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6

I can't be sure if I've been given the gift of telling the future...but if there was ever a late model Pontiac that might transcend the plastic body cladding and become a collectible classic...this is it. Find this 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6 offered here on eBay for $14,995 or best offer, located in Austin, TX.



The WS6 version of the fourth (and final) generation Firebird included the functional ram-air style hood snorkus seen here, further denigrating the aesthetics...but these things were quick cars when new. The 5.7 liter small block V8 under the hood is an LS1, and in the TransAm WS6 with ram-air scoop it produced 325 horsepower and could propel the pony car to 60mph in 4.7 seconds on the way to a electronically limited 160 miles per hour top speed.

  1. I've always found them compelling, especially the pronounced nostrils. There is still a strong link to the mullet crowd - but dammitall if I don't dig them anyway.

    1. I agree David. The wheels are not nearly big enough to offset the rest of it and upgrading does a lot for the look, IMO.
