  1. Scottiedogfla’s 2002 Firebird. This was one of the last few produced at the St Therese Quebec plant before GM shut down 4th Generation F-bodys. Midnight Orange Metallic.
  2. Thanks for posting this! Never heard of this particular model. My brother used to drive a '70 Le Mans (gold): what a great ride!
  3. Great shots!! Loved seeing the original Banshee, too!
  4. Here's something you don't see everyday: it's a circa 1990's Pontiac Matiz from Mexico (not mine). There were a bunch of imported Pontiac branded models outside of the U.S. and Canada including the Firefly, the G2, the Firestorm, among others. Remember these or any others?
  5. '02 Firebird: One of the last 200 produced
  6. I LOVED my '04 GTO and I'm still sorry that I ever let it go (granted that the '05-6 was faster). And yes, the promotions people really didn't do their job to help sell- and neither did many of the dealerships. There were all kinds of ADM (Additional Dealer Markups) placed on the car which certainly didn't help sales. One other thing- those doors were made with really thick gauge steel (I was told) hence it had a great "clunk" when closed. The Monaro/GTO was a great machine!
  7. Congrats! I remember when the '74s came out and was really surprised how different the front end and grill looked from the '73 - but I liked it! You must never get rid of this car! Best, Scotto in FL
  8. 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!"
  9. Sport Tuning T5 in the original 16" size from TireRack.
  10. 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!
  11. New wheels/tires are officially here: thanks to APEX AUTO in Wellington, FL for my install and advice.
  12. 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!
