About “Bandit II”

1989 Bandit II
#126 of 500 Produced
Very rare Firebird that I had at the same time I had the GTA. The car was all original and was 99% showroom new. Once again, once my first son was born it was time to let some of the toys go.
















About “blackbird”

This car has had many small issues since i picked it up.
it seemed as soon as you got one thing fixed another one popped up.
battery,alternator,water pump, radiator...all new.
i spent the majority of the year neglecting it while i worked on my z28.
recently the valves started chattering and i decided to go for broke and overhaul the car,
4 new tires( larger option sizes)
hatch and hood replaced
new cat back exhaust
the engine got really overhauled
new cylinderheads and valves, camshaft intake manifold
after christmas going after similiar suspension upgrades to the z28.
over 3k spent in 2 weeks!
