I ordered it with:

I decided against the suspension option (base 'Hawk includes some suspension tweaks) because I didn't think .02g was worth the $1,600 they were asking. For that kind of money I could have Eibach's and Koni's (maybe I will someday!).

I wanted yellow (the beautiful '60s canary yellow was dropped for '95), but let's face it: black is the only serious sports car color. I also decided to skip the leather given Texas heat. T-tops were never much of a consideration -- nice off, but a pain to deal with (at least they seal better on the 4th gen. F-bodies) and they slightly reduce the rigidity of the unibody chassis. If a sunroof were available I might have been tempted...

I added a couple of modifications during the short time I had the car. Nothing significant.


A friend scanned in the 1995 sales brochure for me and here it is. I'll warn you, though, to maintain legibility these images are big so if you're paying by the minute, don't waste your time.

R.I.P.

I'm sorry to announce that this Firehawk was killed 19 September 1996, just a short year and a half after I took delivery. The complete story lies herein. As you can probably imagine, this page won't be changed much in the future.
