Default Any Camaro/ Firebird owners or fans on here?

After selling my last camaro to by my current jeep im starting to miss the fun of going fast and shifting gears! ive owned 3 camaro's so far in my life time and i absolutely loved them!

So if your an owner/ ex owner or just a fan post some up! and lets talk F-bodies!

Here are mine in order of owning them:

1997 LT1 6 Speed Manual


1998 LS1 Auto


1994 LT1 6 Speed Manual


The best part is I sold my first camaro to my brother so i still get to see it and occasionally drive it!

My first car was a third gen Formula. Sold it about a year and a half ago and I miss the **** out of it. I'm on my fifth car in my short driving career(I'm 20) And the Firebird lasted the longest. (not accidents, just boredom/problems that were too big to be worth it.) Had it for two and a half years, and regret selling it because I really didn't need to. Hopefully once I get my Cobalt sold I'll be able to contain myself well enough to save up for another instead of blowing it all on the XJ.

I had a 96 Formula WS6 about 8 years ago and loved it. I only sold because at the time I had 2 cars, and it was rare and low mileage, so I let it go since I was getting ready to get married and buy a house. Missed it ever since.

Fast forward to about 2 months ago and I started talking about buying another one. My wife gently reminded me a 2 door car with a tiny back seat was not very practical with a 2 year old and plans to try for another child. So I settled instead for an 04 CTS-V this time, I figured it was a reasonable compromise I even scored vanity plates for it - "4DR Z06"

I've had two. A '99 hardtop black SS 6-speed... 1of1 car with easy bolt ons and 11k miles.

And an '02 35th Anniversary SS that put around 470 to the wheels off the bottle.

Loooove firebirds! I had an '84 with an automatic and a 305 and a 4 speed '78 TA with a 350. Both awesome cars. I'll definitely have another 3rd gen. Those second gens are tricky, you really have to look hard to find a clean one that hasn't been abused.

Here are my two f-bodies with my '83 280zx

Love Firebirds! Ive owned a 79,81,91,95,99,01. Pics are up at fquick.com/crispy
I currently own the 99, Ls1 with a few bolt ons. Hope to have a 02 ws6, and a Ram Air 3 clone one day. I say clone because Id want to restomod it instead of restoring.

Ive got a third gen firebird, er firemaro.....

Dont ask... it as my first car and was wreaked. Camaro front clips are easier and cheaper to come by around here so I just worked with what I had. I still own it but am currently working on fixing it up.
