Some of you car guys and gals are probably looking at this listing
and asking yourself "What is a Firebird Firehawk"?
Back in 1987, Street Legal Performance (SLP) in Ste. Therese
and LaSalle, Quebec, Canada. negotiated a deal with GM
to design and fit a performance package for the Pontiac Firebird,
which became known as the SLP "Firehawk".
The Firehawk was an OEM factory performance option
of the Pontiac Firebird.
Essentially, this was a hot-rod option that came with GM certification
and was covered under the standard warranty.
Car Craft Magazine at the time proclaimed
"with the best performance-to-cost ratio of any car in its class,
think of Firehawk as Corvette Lite - a third less costly,
and it's more thrilling."
Motor Trend Magazine went on to say
"this bird has predatory instincts. Oohs and ahhs are assured."

0-60 in 4.9 seconds compared to the ZR1's 5.2,
and the Firehawk finishes the 1/4 mile in 13.5 at 103 MPH.
