Sweeet... A 68 would fill in nicely.. only problem I have found with owning a bunch of birds is only being able to drive one at a time! Seems that the 98 Formula I have gets the most use, it has AC and gets good mileage..

Which one you drive the most?
Performance and general repair tech. Traditional Pontiac V8 is my specialty, as well as automatic transmission repair/diagonossis. 2nd gen speciality, and with the addition of the 98 Formula 4th gen LS1 I am getting to know them real well. Holley and Qjet advice as well.

Chalk mark restoration and date codes arent my thing. W.O.T. is my thing..

Is it strange to have 9 firebirds?

I am still looking for that 1967 or 1968 Firebird hard top 400 automatic.... anyone know of a good one out there for me to restore?

I drive the 89 and the 98 about equally and the 78 sits most of the time.  Not that I do not like it (it is really my favorite), but I haven't really had the time.

The 78 I only put about 200 miles a year on it, and the 98 and the 89 about 1500 miles a year each on them.

I drive mine A LOT more than you do... :) Since I bought the 98 it has gained 35k, thats just since November 2004..  Although most of my 2nd gens havent moved in years, Old Ugly gets raced quite often.. when it isnt broken.  The GTO didnt leave the yard all last year. Its okay, its headed into the shop as soon as the Fords are out of there.
