Soon to have Pontiac Rally II wheels in place of the cheap looking modular wheels on the trailer !
I got this car in 1983. It's 1968 Firebird. The original motor, 350 2bbl, which is still in it has 150k miles on it and has never been out. The 2-speed transmission gave up a few years ago and I replaced it with a TH350 with a B&M shift kit. Original AC and power steering. I added front power disc brakes. Future plans are for a 455 which sits on an engine stand in the garage right now to go in soon. Along with a beefed up 200r4. These pics show a '70 GTO Judge wing and an early 70's T/A shaker. I wanted to make a '68 T/A but couldn't find any of the '69 stuff so I did this. The shaker will definately have to go when I put the new motor in because of the Edelbrock RPM intake I'm using. The wheels shown are '86 T/A 16x8 crosslace wheels swapped front to rear because of the offsets. I have 1/4" spacer behind the front wheels. I plan to send off the wheels I have on the front and have them narrowed to 6.5". I think I'll put this set of wheels on my CanAm and put the 15x8 snowflakes on the Firebird.
