About FirebirdPhil’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I was 12 when I first saw Smokey & The Bandit and was hooked on Trans Ams since then. When I was 15 I got my 1984 GMC 1/2 Ton for a dollar from my grandpa. It had sat in the yard for six years before I got it and me and my father got it to a driveable condition in June of 2005. By April of 2006, my father and I completely revamped the exterior. But things kept going wrong around June motor wise, and in July my dad decided I needed a more reliable vehicle and we found a 2000 Pontiac Firebird. It's been an absolute dream machine. I'm currently working on getting my truck ready to sale and the exterior is show quality, once I sell the truck I'm going to start restoring an older Trans Am or Firebird Formula. I loved working on my 84 GMC and I can't wait to go to work on an older F-body.

My first car

1984 GMC 1/2 Ton Pick Up

Car I wish I still had

I never actually had this car, but I'd have to say my dad's 1975 Nova, he managed to put headers in that beast and said there was maybe 1 inch of clearence after he got them on. But my dad had to sell the Nova before I was even born.

My dream car

1967 Pontiac Firebird.
