These are the third generation Firebirds, instead of shameless muscle it is all high tech and came in three forms, a base model, the SE and the Trans Am. The body design was the selling factor, good looking and aerodynamic and powered by the GM 305 cu in V8. Annual improvements kept the sales up and after more than a decade from the end of the muscle car era came the realization that these performance cars were far more sophisticated and out performed the originals in every way except acceleration. The general opinion was that this was a fun, but economical, car. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, new model introductions, driver's reports, technical and specification data. Models covered include:- Trans Am, MSE, S/E, Super Duty Firebird, HO, Super Trans Am, L69, GTA, Formula.
