If you\'re a fan of Stacey David\'s TV show Gearz, then this 1998 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am needs no introduction. But just for the few others out there, this is Project Red Bird. Stacey was out to show everyone how you can still find good deals on performance cars if you\'re willing to put a little work into it. So it\'s a little ironic that you get to skip the sweat equity and go right to his professional-level build... and you still get the value price!

This was the right place to start a performance project. 1998 was the debut of the Firebird\'s final evolution. The revised front end had a wider style and more air inlets to look extra aggressive. And sleek elements like the hidden headlights, smooth curves, and large rear spoiler have helped keep this a desirable coupe well into its maturity into a true classic. The largest indicators on the outside that there was some serious suspension work are just the 17-inch Forgeline alloys and the sporty stance. In fact, the visuals of this build are not about going over-the-top in any way. The whole idea of this project was about how you can get a car that knows how to have solid power and handling on the streets. So this Pontiac looks good when you\'re out in traffic, but Stacey was also not interested in making you nervous about really driving this coupe.

The charcoal gray interior is both dark and loaded, and so it makes for a great sports car experience. The front bucket seats are built with terrific electronically adjustable bolstering and are finished in supple leather. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal driving position. It has all the best features like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, cruise control, power steering, a four-speed automatic transmission, keyless entry/alarm, steering wheel mounted controls, and a Monsoon AM/FM/CD stereo with equalizer. Beyond just luxury amenities, a modern classic also means modern safety with items like dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. Just like the exterior it\'s driver-ready and that means a driver-quality total presentation. So any time the mood strikes, you\'ll take out the T-tops crank up the A/C, and hit the road.

Under the hood is the 305 hp LS1 fuel-injected V8. This is the heart of why this car became Project Red Bird. Stacey didn\'t need to add power to make an impressive sports car when the base is an LS-powered T/A. So instead, he got to focus even more on the suspension. So take a look at the undercarriage photos. There you\'re going to see some fresh and clean investments in strong components. Starting up front, there\'s a full BMR setup that includes tubular control arms, a tubular crossmember, lowering springs, and a thick sway bar. As you move down the car, you\'ll spot a driveshaft loop and a strong torque arm. The rear has more BMR equipment like the tubular arms, Panhard bar, and thick sway bar. You\'ll even spot nice extras all around like newer bushings and Koni shocks behind each wheel. The professional-level investments don\'t stop there. The four-wheel disc brakes were upgraded to a Baer kit that includes drilled and slotted rotors. And we love the look of how the copper-colored calipers peek out from behind the upgraded wheels. And for the final piece of serious grip, this now has Mickey Thompson Street Comp tires.

Complete with the owner\'s manual, you have episodes of the show to forever document the creativity and craftsmanship that went into this thoughtful build. This is professional-level upgrading for an amazing price. Call today!!!
