1979 Firebird, the "Fire-Goose"
Hey guys, long time no see, a couple years or so. Last time I visited I was enjoying my season with my 1981 Camaro "Doomsday". Well as of July I got fed up with disappointments, traded the car for a 78 Malibu station wagon as a roller. And I've also relocated to Joplin, Mo from the Houston, Tx area.
Anyway, this Firebird is probably the roughest car I've ever picked up as a project. There's no saving it to make it streetable, so in my usual fashion, I'm building a racecar. But uncharacteristically, its not of the straight line variety.
The car is a 1979 firebird, I picked it up from a friend of mine who had it on his property, he picked it up as a donor car about 14 years ago with no motor, trans, or rear end. Now, since then parts have been pulled off of it, and someone paid for the rear quarters, front clip, and doors. So I essentially have 1/3 of a firebird to work with. But, who can argue with a free car?
Me and another friend of mine take welded 2 pieces of fence post to a ford 9 inch rear end and stuck it under the car when we rolled it back right side up. Stuck 4 wheels on it, and Winched it onto my trailer, and brought home a car, and truck bed full of spares, extras, and other junk that was in the car.
The plan is to turn this into a pure stock dirt oval track car. Different than the average transformation, but at least it'll be something other than a scrap heap in someones yard.
So for the record, I didn't do this to the car, it came this way.
