1988 Pontiac Firebird, white with red bird on the hood and dragon flames on the sides, red velvet interior, approx. 275K km's, Automatic, V6 2.8L engine, 700 watt subwoofer in the back, usb stereo (comes with the car!), power windows, t-tops, white wall BF Goodrich M+S tires with thick tread, all seat belts work, heat works but no AC, no defogger on the back window.The car RUNS but it idles rough and will stall often when idling at a stop sign or slowly pulling into a parking spot. It always starts back up again, but this is annoying of course and the only reason I'm willing to let it go for $1800. I put a ton of money into the car over the past few years, replacing various parts from the hood release cable to the seatbelt retractors and visors. I spent a lot of time at the junkyard, any time a Firebird showed up I replaced little parts that were missing and hard to find new. The interior is actually really nice for a car this old and the engine is clean. The stalling issue is probably fixable but it's been a game of guess and check and I need something more reliable to be a daily driver. This car looks totally RAD and has turned many heads in its days. It's been in music videos and independent films. It's been touched by the hands of famous actors and directors. Plates are off it now so if you buy it you will need to bring plates to drive it home FYI. Couple things that are broken: Door handle on passenger side, center console lid (needs to be screwed in properly), right side headlight motor (will throw in headlight motor repair kit brand new, I've fixed it myself before), horn (it works, but was getting stuck so I disconnected the wire, probably easily fixed I think it's just missing the spring), left side speaker is out (I think this is just a loose wire connection, however), a rip in one of the back seats. Comes with the original Firebird manual AND the Haney one. Plus some extra parts I have laying around.A list of things I replaced in the past 2 1/2 years that I owned it, brand new parts from Lordco and I have the receipts:RadiatorDistributorCap and RotorPCV ValceIdler arm, Center Link, Inner and Outer Tie Rod Ends, Ball JointsMuffler02 SensorFuel FilterHeater CoreMAF SensorSpark Plugs and WiresOil Connector Switch14" BFGoodrich TiresBrake PadsHatch and Hood shocks (used)Hood Release Cable (used)Throttle Position SensorOil Pressure SensorTrunk Hatch Lid motor repair kitI've replaced more than that but you get the idea. Lots of really great, new parts in this car. I am firm on the price of $1800 because of the parts and stereo system. Come check it out anytime, just call or text. I'll be the girl crying because I'm gonna miss this car.- Alison
