    Why did you get your Pontiac?

    My '02 Firebird is actually my 7th Pontiac (after the '64 LeMans, '83 T1000 (shouldn't even count!), '86 Sunbird, '88 FIrebird, '97 Grand Prix, '04 GTO (Man, I wish I still had that one!!) and there's a funny little story behind it. Basically, while we were all battening down the hatches and waiting for Hurricane Irma here in South Florida, I was going through listings on Cars.com for Pontiacs, primarily Firebirds. After several days of imbibing a good quantity of beer and sangria (can't let it go to waste), I picked up the phone and called Quality Buick/GMC (formerly Pontiac/Buick/GMC) in Alton Illinois regarding the sweet '02 they were selling. Everything about the car checked out: 1 owner that made repeat purchases that had gotten a little too old for 2 cars, only 40000 original miles, no accidents. I made a bold offer (including tax-in and shipping to South FL) and they accepted. On October 3rd of this past year, my '02 Bird arrived to sunny South Florida. We dodged the bullet here in Palm Beach County in regards to Irma and I ended up a Pontiac owner again! I call it my "Lucky Hurricane Car!"

    Sweet GTO! I still miss my '04. I don't think the automotive press ever gave this car the kudos that it truly deserved. ENJOY!

    New wheels/tires are officially here: thanks to APEX AUTO in Wellington, FL for my install and advice.

    '02 So FLA Firebird

    Thank you: I really wanted to a little off the original for the replacement wheels but the Rev 100's I was considering don't have the proper fit ratio. I hope to find something very soon!

    That is a super sweet 2006! I love the hood stripes; the blue is a great color, too. Makes me miss my 2004!!

    My Sunset Orange Metallic '02 Bird is finally undergoing it's much needed restoration. FIrst order of business: replacing the OEM Wheels which are corroding with some new rims. Kudos to "Mufflers Brakes & More" in West Palm Beach who discovered the corrosion on the inside of the old wheels - and refused to charge me for their fix!

    One of the last 'Birds in FL!

    Thanks! I should mention too that my dad had his share of Pontiacs back in the day (although he was definitely more of a Buick guy)- he had a '60 Catalina, a '70 LeMans (which was commandeered by my brother as it had that nice 5.7 L V8), and an '02 G6. At any rate, I've always dug PMV more than any other division; I still have a good number of original brochures from the dealerships. -Scottie
  10. IT is a great pleasure to be a "newbie" on this site as I am a long-time Pontiac enthusiast! My first ownership began back in 1976 when as a High School Senior, I purchased a '64 LeMans from my neighbors. Not a GTO by any means (flat 6, standard brakes), it still started me on my Pontiac journey- which included: 1984 T-1000, 1986 Sunbird, 1988 Firebird (V6), 1996 Grand Prix GT, 2004 GTO (my buddy Mike and I were early adopters of the Monaro/GTO and Pontiac Performance Magazine actually did a photo story on us called "Blood Brothers" as we lived several houses apart), current ride: 2002 Firebird. Sunset Orange Metallic. Apparently, it was one of the last couple of hundred produced and I thoroughly enjoy it! Although I drive a german performance sedan during the work week, I intend to keep my 'Bird for a long long long time! I never had a car with T-tops before this one and I love opening it up and cruising alongside the beach on FL A-1-A, going to the local "Cars & Coffee" once a month.
