A Firebird I can Finally Like...
Ran across this on Hemmings...84 Firebird....


Attached Files Thumbnail(s)
Somebody really wanted a modern retro Australian XBGT...or is that hints of an early 70's Charger?
I saw a forum thread on that car, the guy made all his own fiberglass molds and parts. It's unbelievable the amount of work that went into this car.

Interesting, and I agree that the work gone into it is phenomenal.

But, I think I would've just rather had the '84 Firebird, to be honest.

I agree, this is the most awesome 84 Firebird I have ever seen!

Not too crazy about the wheels and yellow pin stripe, but....

Side view kind of has a Ford Maverick meets Mustang II thing going on.

Not too crazy about the wheels but a very futuristic looking car and design and I do like it !

71-73 Mustangs never die, they just go faster!
NOPE. Not my cup of tea. I can appreciate the work that went into it, but its just not for me.


1971 Mach 1
408C Stroker
C4 w/3,000 stall
8.8" Rear w/3.73's
Disc brakes all way around.

I see so many elements of Ford and Chrysler in it...

The side 'window/louver' shape is very much Falcon XB, as well as the layout of the tail panel and grille. The frontend does seem to have 69/70 Shelby Mustang hints.
The side profile really strikes me as the 73 Charger and it's similar taillights.
I think it would look better with wheels more like the 5 spoke Globes on the Falcon in the pic. Although, some 16" Magnums would go with it quite well.
Just $25k....I have to go check the couch cushions for more quarters...
