Pontiac Firebird

2-door sports car, call it a pony car or a muscle car, it exudes American loudness from all its pores. Big engines, big torque you know what it stands for.

But is it cool?

Red chariot

considering that two top photos are from different reincarnations of the same generation this poll is a total fail.

and it's not really cool. late examples of 3rd Gen Camaro are much more cooler

EDITed to correct the fact of the generations

It's garish, loud. And it's American.

Rhetorical question then.

I have driven one in exactly the same livery. Back in the 80's my old boss had one. He asked me to go and collect something from Chelmsford and handed me the keys and said "take my car". I got in it and immediately snaked it when putting my foot to the metal. Nice car, but wallowed about like an old boat in a gale on corners.

A flaming massive bird is quite different to a massive flaming bird.

Always liked this and the Camaro that were at the American Car Centre down the road from my grandparents house in Kingston. Still looks good complete with Ferrari GTO roof.

When I was about 13 a Thunderchicken in black just like Burt's was my absolute favourite car. These days I'd probably go for a Formula 400 instead. Is it cool? Nope. Do I care? Not a bit.
