  • November ROTM Winner-Lucky SOB

    It was a close race, but we had one car jump out and take the lead right at the end. Help me in congratulating Fred for becoming November's ROTM Winner.

    Lucky SOB

    Here's what Fred had to share about their 1967 Firebird Convertible:

    Let me start off by saying, this is my Mom's car and I'm proud of it!

    My Dad went in halfsies with a friend and bought the car about 20 years ago (when I was 5 years old). The car was in rough shape, needed floor boards, bodywork, paint, exhaust, etc. They had it restored to 'driver' condition and when my Dad brought it home for the first time, my Mom had to have it. So my Dad ended up buying out his friend for the other half and we've had the car ever since. For about 15 years, we enjoyed driving it and it spent most of it's life doing laps on Woodward or heading to A&W for 'Cruise Night'.

    Then a few years ago we decided to freshen the engine up to get it ready for a 1000 mile car tour around Michigan. So we pulled the original 326 and sent it off to be rebuilt. While it was gone, we ordered a truckload of new parts from NPD and worked to freshen up the engine bay to receive its original heart. It was a great Father/Son project that received a lot of help from some great friends and guys on this site.

    Here are some pictures of the rebuild.

    This car also got me into F-bodies, so when it was time for me to get my own... I had to match my mom

    • 2017 Meet & Greet - Supporting a new charity: International FPIES Foundation
      by meissen
      As some of you may know, about a year ago Angie and I moved to New Haven, MI - about 30 miles northeast of Detroit. In the past year, we've met a lot of great neighbors and one of them has a very unique story. The couple who live across the street from us have a son named Elliott who is battling two extremely rare conditions. First, he has what's called "FPIES" which essentially means he has an allergic reaction any time he ingests proteins found in food. Problem is - the protein is found in almost...

      Looking for a pit bike that is small enough it would fit inside a Firebird (pull pass. seat, ratchet strap to the floor there lol) Doesn't need to be fancy or fast, just want something for putzing around

      11 years ago today our little chunk of the internet was born. Y'all know I'm a sentimental emotional guy, and this website has admittedly been one of my proudest achievements. What we have here means a lot to me - it's why I'm so passionate when it comes to trying to maintain the peace and kumbaya. This site is our spot to shoot the shit with fellow Camaro and Firebird cruisers and to get help and advice - whether it's on their car or personal lives. I know we rag on eachother a bit here and there,...
