1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (Blue)
Last updated Oct 18, 2010
My most recent 2nd Generation F-body. Purchased as a birthday present to myself in Jan. '09.
Flew from Tennessee to California and drove this car 2400 miles back home across I-40.
As mentioned in my other cars that are posted here, my desire to own the pinnacle of the car that was my first car never died.
This Trans Am holds all the qualities I desired for over 25 years.
