I bought it as a total loss due to a fire. It took me just over four hundred hours to restore it. The color of the paint is a true three stage candy apple red. Charisma 400 series. At the moment I don’t have too many pictures but I will in the Spring when I get it out from storage.
The 99 Firebird Formula belongs to the fourth generation of the Pontiac Firebird. Production of the fourth generation span the model years of 1993 to 2002. With the 2002 model year, production of the Pontiac firebird ended, bringing to a close production of a beautiful and powerful machine that rivaled it’s sister, the Chevy Camaro.
Production of the Chevy Camaro also came to a close with the fourth generation which likewise ended with the 2002 model year. However, unlike the Pontiac Firebird, this was a temporary stop. Eight years later in 2010, production resumed with production of the fifth generation of Chevy Camaros. Approved in August of 2006, the fifth generation is currently being produced in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.
To the dismay of many car enthusiasts (including myself) production of the Pontiac Firebird has not resumed and as of February 2011 there are no known plans to re-start production of this iconic muscle car.
I just finished restoring a Camaro 1971 and a half for a friend and right now I am working on a Chevy truck 1948 for another friend.
