MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH
by Robert Zech
this is an excerpt from the articles appearing in the EAGLE
Since the late fifties, I have been car fanatic. I have had
many cars over the years, including: 1957 Ford Custom 300 V-8 1965 Chevy Impala
H.T. V-8 1964 Chevy Impala SS H.T. V-8 1965 Mercury Marauder H.T. 427 1968 Nova
SS 350 1969 Chevelle SS396 and the list goes on. I first bought a Pontiac in the
70's. It was a 1968 Firebird ram air. It was very nice and very fast. I later
bought an '83 Firebird Trans Am V-8. Black and beautiful. I loved that car. An
unfortunate accident (rear end) after two years of driving caused me to park it
after I had it repaired. It then saw limited use, due to my bad case of nerves.
I traded it on a new 1987 Formula 350 V-8. I loved the car, and my addiction to
Pontiac Motor Division was now complete. The future would bring more Pontiac
excitement. An '88 Firebird coupe V-8, a beautiful 1991 Firebird Formula 350 and
my favorite of all - a 1994 LT-1 Formula V-8. It has all as of this date, only
5620 miles on the odometer. It, truly, is my baby. As you can see, I am really
into Pontiac power! I will continue to buy Firebirds as long as are available.
To that end, I will always be a Firebird lover. Long live Firebird!
