1977 Pontiac FirebirdReview

Not My Car But Identicle — bought the firebird summer of 2004 for $3,000 with 59,000 original miles. i had it painted an vinyl top put back on. the next spring the rear frame section went to hell... (rust & street racing) been sitting every since til i can bring it to school an replace the frame sections an floor pans.. still only has 62,000 original miles on the numbers matching 400ci engine an 350turbo tranny..

Pros: special order car..that no one can seem to find any information on although i have the original build sheet?

Cons: have some work ahead of me this fall once i get into street rod & chassis fab!!

Black Bauty — Always fun to know that one have owned a moviestar! :) This is a real Special Edition, also known as THE BANDIT! It´s still in good hand with a new owner, and we still get to see it from time to time

Pros: lots of HP, nasty sound and fun to drive

Cons: a little thirsty, and for me; a little too uncomfortable to drive

My Baby — Did Burt Reynolds look like he was having fun in "Smokey & the Bandit"? The cars were a blast to drive, and now that I have more power,it should be that much more fun to drive..My car came with the 400 cubic inch V8, but that engine broke, and now it has a 455 with over 500 hp. I have owned it for 33 years, and it needs a bit of body work, & the new headliner installed, and hopefully, that will all be done, early in 2011 My son helped me get the car running again, this summer, and I have no intention of selling it. He would be disappointed , after all his hard work, if he did not become the heir to this car The body style was loved by a lot of people and it survived from 1970-1981. A lot of these cars were Trans Ams, but mine is a Formula,so that makes it more rare,and at present, it has 36705 miles on it.Even the belts and hoses are original.

Pros: The fact that I could buy it in 1977, and still own it in 2010

Cons: jerks that steal pieces off the car, like the mirrors, and the center caps on the wheels
