1968 Pontiac Firebird (Bird)
Last updated Jan 10, 2012
Kept the car looking as stock as possible. Bought the car with red paint. From a distance it looks good but not afraid to drive it. Added the black 400 hood later and cut a hole for the Hood Tach. It is a street car that gets driven 3 -4 days a week and goes to the drag strip 3 to 4 times a year. The car went to an AutoX event and that was an education. It did well but it is built to go straignt and go fast!

The car came with a 350 engine but I replaced that with a 455. Many modifications including a nitrous set-up. Currently running a 125 shot.
