About

I have owned my 1967 Pontiac Firebird 400 4-Speed Convertible since 1990. Over the years, I have made this car as close to original as possible. Everything is now original, except for the front and rear rear spoiler. I just added an original carburetor, steering wheel, antenna assembly, radio, mirror, and hood tach. It was appraised in 2009 for $43k. I want to start showing it at car shows, so that is my next project!
