additional information

The heady times of the 1960s and 1970s denoted the epoch of the muscle car era. Any car enthusiast with a love for speed and torque, revered these muscle cars that were specifically designed for drag racing. Most of these beasts were fitted with large V-8 engines, however by the end of the 1970s the golden age of the muscle car had almost come to an end due to stricter emission controls, high gas prices and exorbitant insurance costs. Amongst all this Pontiac was the one company that still persevered in their popularity largely due to their Firebird Trans Am series. While other companies were now decreasing their horse power, Pontiac was actually increasing it. Pontiac first started with its Firebird series in the year 1967 to directly compete with the other muscle cars in the market.
