BlackbirdWS6's Blown 1997 Firebird TA WS6 Convertible 6spd
 
There is a build thread documenting most of what occurred while building the car however it got a bit lengthy. This is the consolidated thread for those interested in just the details.

As some of you know, much of this would not have been possible without the help of the JSFBOA, other friends, and my wife. The build was certainly not a walk in the park but when I'm older and look back, it will give me a ton of fond memories. Everything was built in-house aside from the exhaust from the headers back. The roll bar was welded at a friends shop.

Nah, I like my bank statement. Rather keep mine from catching flames plus I need to get to this 10 sec nonsense first.

KirkEvil 07-10-2012 09:31 PM

10s are overrated. A low 6 sec 1/8th is a better goal

One thing at a time.

Jersey Mike 09-18-2012 01:56 PM

I wonder how this shifter & boot would look in between some tan Corbeaus...

Blackbirdws6 09-18-2012 04:05 PM

It would stick out like a sore thumb. Looks nice in the pic because the interior is dominated in tan leather. This is not the case in the bird.
