    SLP To Revive Firehawk Name.

    SLP is set to revive the Firehawk name on the Pontiac G8. Apparently, some firebird owners are P.O'ed about it. Click on the article to find out more.

    Hey, at least we can now get a Fire-something at the Pontiac dealer. With a wife and two kids I may be a taker in a year or two.

    at least the Firehawk is revived for a RWD model unlike the Charger in the 1980s

    now, if Pontiac gets a small RWD Alpha-based car, I won't be surprised to see SLP slapping the Firehawk name for it as well

    They'll really be whining when a blown G8 beats an F-body Firehawk in the 1/4 mile.

    Oh well, its their name they can do what they want with it. It doesn't make much sense, but whatever. I kind of wish GM would sell SLP all Firebird rights so SLP could build one and market it as such.

    Firebird fans will be peeved but the Firehawk name is technically SLP's so they can do whatever they want with it. Personally I can't wait to see how a SLP G8 will perform

    I am one of the die-hard Firebird fan and I am pissed off as well. Since I hated the G8 to begin with since it's NOT an American car, Firehawk on G8 is really a stupid move by SLP. Firehawk name only fits on the firebird, well, at least to me.

    But, oh well......

    Well I guess the 4th-gen F-body was a (North) American car, considering they were built in Canada.

    Good point. Although the new Radix ones are pretty quiet.

    It doesn't matter that its not a Firebird, SLP will make a beast. I currently run an entire SLP exhaust set up on my GT Stang, a very high quality product, can't wait to see this new Firehawk.
    I have seen the boobs. And they is us.

    It may not be American built, but it is certianly the most American type car GM offers. A big RWD Sedan with a bigger V8.

    I'm just happy that someone cares enough or have enough nerve try to do something that GM won't. If I can't have a Firebird, a G8 based new Firehawk is an excellent second choice!!!

    Slapping the Firehawk name on an Aussie 4-dr that's taken too many 'roids??? **** yeah, I'd be pissed too!! (esp. since GM hasn't even paid lip service to the Firebird fans still pissed about the Camaro coming back......)
