OK what's a TA doing with a firebird dash bezel???

And why no lens on the overhead light?

Finally - alright, who let Hammer chew on the dash again? ;D

What about the fact that the car was originally a Nautalis Blue base Firebird, with Blue Vinyl interior.

Yeah, I noticed they do advertise it as a Firebird and the VIN confirms it but if they were gonna' do a clone, you'd think they would have at least tried harder

That's hardly a POS... Maybe the price is off, but it's not a crappy car by a long shot. I'd drive it that's for sure.

Not trying to ruffle any feathers here, I just don't think it's garbage because a few details are off.

The vin # says Formula 400, and the cowl tag says base Firebird.
