This issue’s featured car is the ‘76 Formula of Judge Gene Fierro from Palmetto Bay, Florida. Here is
My ‘76 California built Firebird Formula started its
life with a smog chocked factory 350 and tranny. 42 years later this award
winner has been transformed into a street pounding hot looking South Beach
beauty featuring a rare and authentic ‘71 TA 455 HO with 700R transmission
making 475 hp and 500 in torque .
This street friendly, reliable cruiser is highlighted
by all desirable engine parts including Edelbrock, Melling, Quickfuel Carb, MSD,
SS headers and custom made Mandrel bent exhaust system!
It features a sensational red paint job, modern
drivetrain and suspension as well as power disc brakes, power steering, power
windows, SS gas tank, custom gauge panel and tach, sequential tail lights, US
Mag 17" rims with Nitto tires and a rear gear making street and highway driving
flawless and fun.
The rebuilt factory AC and large radiator have it
running cool in the (305). The dealer installed power sunroof makes the cruise
even more enjoyable! As for the performance and sound? - well you be "the Judge
"...Old School, Hard Core!"
