This is one of two Firebirds owned by Chris. Chris writes:

      "I bought this Firebird in Aug of '97 for $6,000. It was green with black interior and had 121,000 on the original motor and its original top. All I have done to this car is new paint, top, and interior. It has a 400 with a M20 4-speed. The only plans for this car is disk brakes, bigger sway bars front and back, RAIII headers, and rebuild the motor to stock specs."

This is the other Firebird in Chris' collection. Chris writes:

     "I bought this Firebird for my 18th birthday for $1,500. I've had the car 18 years now. It was silver blue with a white interior, 350 with an automatic and a 2:56 single leg rear end. Then it went to a dark blue with black interior and a 400 and shift kit and a 3:08 posi. After that I put in disc breaks, a 455 with #670 heads, an M21 4-speed, Holly 780, Hooker headers, and a Crane cam 508/532 with 250psi per cylinder and about 13:1 compression. I raced it at Fremont raceway in '88 and '89 and then I went for a street livable car so I put in a 428, #48 heads, RAIII headers and cam, same 4-speed with a 3:73 posi topped with a '66 tri power dished to 9.5:1 compression."

     "Car can run 13.4 sec @ 106 mph w/pump gas and street tires, but has not been raced since I have owned it, I have retired it.. Only when my WIFE drives it does it get raced :- ) It makes a great daily driver, usually driven 4-5 times a week during Spring/Fall. Always garaged ! The car is a real head turner and a blast to drive!!"

Long-time friend of the Gallery, Gilbert Carreon, owns this 1969 Firebird. Gilbert writes:

     "So I found this car online in April of 2007, and called right away. Two days later I had paid for it, and 10 days later it was in my garage. This one is top of the line, with the 400 Motor, Power disc brakes, power windows, power antenna, rally II rims, deluxe interior, working A/C and Power top. This will be a show car after we clean and polish, and replace a few trim items."

Gilbert has been a heavy contributor to the models section of this website supplying with me great images for the majority of the kits I have on display. Recently, Gilbert finally took the time to send me some pics of the several different Firebirds he owns. He also owns:
