1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 (Red Rod)

I sold my 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee Ltd. as I decided to go classic. I then restored my 68 Firebird Convertible with the intention of commuting with it. The paint job and body work turned out so good, I did not want to drive it so I convinced my wife that I needed a commuter car. My budget was around $6000. I bought the 1973 Buchaneer Red Formula 400 and kept it for 6 years or so. This car had limited slip dif., a shift kit and a mild cam. It ran well and would bark the tires at 60 MPH shifting into 2nd gear. Lot's of fun!
