History:


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.

Additional Facts:

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.

Present Or Future Plans:

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.

My Ride’s Pictures:

Very nice picture of the 1999 Firebird Formula. The candy apple red color was a great choice for this car. But according to the owner, it is not just any candy apple red, it’s a true three stage candy apple red. This beauty is powered by an all aluminum LS1 size 5.7 Liter engine (the same engine as the Corvette) 16-valve pushrod overhead valve V8 with Ram Air induction, 347 cu. in. producing 320 HP @ 5200 rpm and a torque of 335 (lb-ft) @ 4400 rpm.

Description of Picture on the Right:
This is another great picture of the 1999 Firebird Formula. No doubt that the candy apple red really looks great on this car. It is hard to believe that this car was once a total loss due to fire. It took the owner just over four hundred hours to restore it. By the looks of the end result, this was time very well spent (in my humble opinion). Make sure to click on the Pic to enlarge.

Excellent picture of the 1999 Firebird Formula with the convertible top down. The 99 model year belongs to the fourth generation of these cars which included the model years between 1993 and 2002. The end of the fourth generation also marked the end of an era for these cars. Production was ended with the 2002 model. Please click on the picture to enlarge.
