Looks like a great starting point. That's one of the most distinctive hood birds I've ever seen on a Firebird!

I needed a car and searched my local craigslist. Miraculously I found this car and bought it for around $500. It had been left outside for ten years, it had thirteen year old tires on it, and the drive train was rusted more than the Titanic, but it was mine.

I drove it back 40 miles with expired plates in the rain with bald tires. In those moments I had more fun than I'd had in years.

Now I'm attempting to restore it to its former glory.To do: Sandblast, patch, paint.


5.0 L V8, 150 HP.

Well...the paint job and the fact everything is ripped out of it.
