I am a huge pontiac fan. I love the third generation firebirds. I had one but sadly its time came. I'm hoping to sell my truck and buy a really nice firebird in the near future.

Good stuff. Are you considering the GTO? I like the newer ls2-equipped models.

I miss my old 86 Firebird ! Rumor has it that GM is considering reviving the Camaro/Firebird line !

Firebirds were great, but haven't they gone now?

EDIT: OOPS! Just saw the date of the OP.

Yep, the Firebird is gone. However, there are rumors there will be a Trans Am in the future. Under what badge, who knows. I won't believe it until I see it.

You will never know which model may be resurected. The Chevy Camaro disappeared but has returned. The Firebird is too close to the Camaro and my choice for a Pontiac retro would be the GTO.

GM tried reviving the GTO and it flopped. Seemed like a nice enough car to me, but reading some of the car boards, it seems the car didn't have enough muscle car look to it.

I do remember the last ditch effort to revive the GTO and agree that the appearance could have been better. The new Camaro is the answer to Ford's Mustang retro look. No matter what the automakers do they can never bring the real classic back unless they drag out the old dies and tooling. Modern tech for performance would greatly enhance a car from years gone by.

A lot of the old muscle cars can be upgraded with EFI, modern ignitions and computer controls, suspensions, etc. Lot of money involved doing that.

Pontiac? did somebody say Pontiac?
I love Pontiac, my parents had an old Pontaic station wagon back in the 60's that ran like a tank. I drive that thing until the engine finally said no more, in 1995 I bought a 1978 Pontiac Bonnie :) power EVERYTHING! it rode smoother than ANY cadi of Lincoln on the road. Other than my pickups and Blazers and Jeeps, this is what I miss. She was White, with a vinyl top, 400 cid engine HEI ign system 350 turbo trans.

I think you live far enough up in the hills that I would LOVE to drive a V8 440 cid Pontiac on your city's roads on my way out into the countryside :)

Been a long time since the vintage V8s. I don't know why wolfen would want to to put a Chrysler engine in a Poncho. I'd stick with the 455 ci....LOL.

Just having fun.

OOPS! meant 400cid I would have got it right had there been a spellchecker for numbers LOL.
And yea 1 455 might be better, but would it fit in the car I'd take? (1978 Bonnie fully loaded)
