My disease is spreading! Muah ha ha ha ha!
« on: April 11, 2010, 11:25:10 PM »
Seems my Firebird disease is spreading. This '80 Formula started showing up to school lately. Talked with the owner, it's got a 389 Tri-Power from a '65 GTO in it (nice step-up from the 301) and yes, that's a GTO hood tach.

I see his plates are from near Kalispell, MT.  Did he recently move there?

Thanks, guys. As of now, I got my friend Brandon hooked too and he just grabbed a rust-free 1979 Esprit to restore. We're building a SBC 350 (shhh!) and working out the interior (and some interesting wiring). I don't have any pics of it yet, but I'm trying to get him to join the site. I told him it was an invalueable resource. Seriously, you guys rock. :)

So now my influence has spread even more...

One day, Second-gen Firebirds will rise from the ashes and take over the world! :)

Or maybe repel the healthcare bill....

That happened to me up at college. For a while everyday I came out there was a fellow 79 parked next to mine. This went on for about a month until we finally ran into each other. I always enjoy meeting a fellow 2nd gen owner. There aren't many around here so i get kind of excited when I see another one cruisin around.

Oh and pssst..... Your license plate is crooked ;)

That is awesome! I wish there were more 2nd gens from my towns. But then again its nice to be the only one sometimes. Makes ya stand out a little bit.
In Bonney Lake/Sumner area I have the only 2nd gen that I know of and in Moses Lake where Im at school, there is one 77 or 78 brown formula or base Firebird. Havent really been able to take a close look at it yet.
