This is Alex's 1969 Pontiac Firebird
1969 Pontiac Firebird, owned since October 31st, 2016. 4th owner, 56K documented original miles. After being sold new in Van Nuys, she spent most of her life in Reseda CA before going to Texas with the 3rd owner in 2012. I brought her back to CA in 2016. Aside from 1 small rust spot and having her trunk pan replaced, she is as solid as they come. DAILY DRIVER, and yes I race her too like she was meant to be!
