    It is a nice car, but not a Muscle Car..

    Firebird, Camaro, Cuda, Challenger, Javlelin,&Mustang are Pony Cars
    Chevelle, Nova, Charger, Torino, Super Bee, Roadrunner, GTO,...etc are Muscle Cars
    Corvette, Viper are Sports Cars ..

    those are Ronal wheels. And for whoever says a camaro/firebird isnt a muscle car needs to lay off the crack!

    Man, I still love the 91-92 tails on that car, I gotta get my GTA back on the road.

    Mustang Camaro Firbird, sure you can call them all pony cars, and Corvettes have always been sports cars, but with nothing really being made in the last 20 years or so that could technically be called a muscle car I don't have a problem calling it that.

    ...and am I not seeing something right or is that not the aero wing spoiler, something looks different about it?

    JRock ... sounds like you're thinking of the 92 firehawks. They were the same rims I have with a custom SLP centercap. Pretty rare to find those! SLP had some extra center caps made but those are looooong gone. Trust me, I looked lol

    yeah i think that's it. we had a formula like yours in our shop (when I worked in car audio) and he had the slp centers, he also had either slp or firehawk package on it. i do remember it had all kinds of slp stuff.



    well, not as a real "ram air" hood. the guy i bought the car from cut holes kind of along side the intake/fuel rails to work as a cross flow cooling system. I was dissapointed, but it does help the LT1 run cooler. I wish it was functional though! :sadwavey:

    I had the car painted and bought a new set of decals from SLP but I haven't decided if I want to put them back on or not. I like the "clean" look but I do like the decals. Maybe I'll put them on in the spring when the car comes out of hibernation.

    I was actually thinking about having them painted on but that would probably cost a small fortune.

    i'm not really big on the early style formula firehawks but if you can get one, it shold be worth some money one day if you keeps the miles low and keep all the stock parts if you mod it.
