In the heyday of the muscle car, Goats and Birds equipped with Ram Air powerplants literally flew off the dealer lots and onto dragstrips and street-racing venues across the country. Tuners and hobbyists alike routinely messaged the cylinder heads to raise compression, installed a lumpy 31/44 racing cam, and bolted on a set of headers and performance mufflers to extract every ounce of the engine’s potential. The decade and technology may have changed, but hobbyists continue to employ the same tried-and-true tricks. Example 2,000 WS6 T/A. With 450 rwhp and show-quality paint and detailing, this T/A is an accurate representation of what can be accomplished with careful research and a commitment to detail.
This 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6 Convertible has a four-speed Manual transmission with electric overdrive & a monstrous 5.7-liter V-8 that would power half of Disneyland. This Firebird TA pumps out 320 horsepower at 5200 rpm to move this 3536-lb baby. The WS6 performance and handling package that includes a ram air induction system, five-spoke 17-inch wheels, grippy speed-rated radials, low-restriction dual outlet exhausts, a specially-tuned suspension and a power steering cooler that does nothing to chill your ardor behind the wheel. The cooler's main function is to bring down the operating temperature of the power steering fluid through the somewhat truck feel to the steering wheel would seem to preclude its necessity.

Like all low-slung sports cars, the Firebird, with 4.5 in of ground clearance, the back seat is very roomy, while the front seats are racing-style, power-adjustable six-way lumbar-support buckets that can take you cross-country as comfortably as any luxury touring car. Don’t be budget-conscious, remember you'll have to feed this puppy with high-priced 91-octane fuel. Fuel economy is rated at 18 cities, 27 highways. The TA has a package that includes interior controls, trim and features such as cupholders and remote radio buttons on the steering wheel. The traction control system (TCS) that comes on automatically every time you start the car, is activated by a push-button near the dash. Limiting wheel spins - easy to accomplish with this Trans Am model - it goes into action by closing the throttle and managing engine spark. If you're in cruise control when you start to slip, the TCS will automatically disengage it. Brakes, of course, are powerful and ready to perform, vented discs in front, power-assist in back, coupled with an ABS system.

I found the suspension system very solid. It has front tubular stabilizer bars with links, gas-charted shocks, and a 30-mm stabilizer bar, while in the back are a Salisbury axle with torque arm, trailing arm, track bar, coil springs, and a 19-mm stabilizer bar. All practically guaranteed to give you a firm, safe ride. As popular as Trans Am are, it's generous of Pontiac to include as standard equipment a Passkey II theft deterrent system, along with a theft alarm. No muscle car is worth its salt without a truly splendid audio system, and Firebird delivers with a Delco radio and CD player with a 500-watt Monsoon ten-speaker stereo with a tape player and seven-band equalizer poured into the atmosphere by ten speakers. I’d rate this car a 10 out of 10.
