Default Couple pics of my bird

Had my bird out at the airstrip and a car show the following day. Put about 3 hrs drive time on it. Ran flawlessly.

Felt pretty good to have it out again

First gen Firebirds are the some of the greatest looking cars. I've always loved the deep dish Cragars on the back. Nice clean ride Jeff.

Thanks, it's fun bringing it out on the street, makes really good power even through the little 2 1/2 flow masters and turn outs. Ran 10.00 on the track in that configuration.

Most people don't realize it's a glass nose either until I pull it off the car.,

I usually only run 93 but every once in a while I'll put some 100ll in to lubricate the valves it's got hardened seats but a lot of it got cut away for the 1.77 valves so it's just a precaution I use when I happen to be at the airport.
