Yes sir, on vacation until April. When is the next meet or show lol

 

Wish I would have known.  The boss just went to Festivals of Speed over the weekend which was apparently really cool.  I was not able to make it.

FL2k, Silver Springs, and Wanna Go Fast all in January!

 

These are all true.  The Silver Springs show is a big deal this year because it's supposed to be the last one.

Because most people probably don't care to have a how to do stuff on an F-Body thread here, I made a nice writeup for installing an Android headunit into the Firebird.  I highly recommend the head unit, for anyone interested!

Alright so kind of a mini update on the Trans Am – as most people know, these cars came with sealed beam headlights – think old Jeeps, or old GMC trucks.  Sealed beam lights are garbage and leave much to be desired.  LMC Truck makes kits that allow the use of a normal 9006 headlight bulb in inner and outer (brights and regular).  The kit also does away with the fluting which adds a lot more clarity.

 

Before anyone asks, we have not driven the car in the dark since doing them so I have no idea how much better output is yet, but it does seem much better in the driveway testing.

 

The nice thing is this should make it easy to switch to a higher quality bulb whenever we want to.  Some people put HID bulbs in this kit but I am not about that life haha.

 

Anyhow, here are some pics:

Also, see where we did the black decal on the bird?  Also did black on the Trans Am lettering on the side and in the rear bumper, but those are not pictured.

 

Thanks for looking!

I do remember that now, one of my (rich) friends in highschool was given an 02 Corvette convertible as a graduation present, and I remember now that I was surprised at the headlights. I did always like the amber running lights on the C5's though.

If you search hard enough you can find em in good condition for around $15k. I know a guy who got a base model for $9k. 

 

Id take a z if I could find a good deal one day.

I've never been in one but have always wanted to.  They are so hard to keep running though!

keep running in a straight line according to him.  I guess with the power, all wheel drive and 4 wheel steering it was a PIA to keep aligned.  He said he got a hold of some control arms a guy was machining a while back and its helped to fix it.  If that is the case then he just doesn't like to drive it much them but just the shape of them always got me somehow.
