 When I first found this Bird, I really wasn’t looking for a car from this era. After bringing her home, I quickly fell in love and this car can also be credited with starting my love affair with Pontiac. It accompanies my daily driver, a ‘64 Bonneville, in the stable. From early on, this car has been on a journey to go “back to factory” replacing a ‘77 nose that had been placed on it with the proper ‘79 nose among other changes that the previous owner had made. One of my favorite “upgrades” that I’ve made is getting the snowflake wheels with reproduction period correct tires put on all 4 corners. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed shows and cruises with my kids, but also introducing them to things like 8-Tracks, the CB, and getting dirty under the hood. I look forward to many more years of fun!
