2 ½ stainless exhaust with Magnaflow, gives the car a nice sound.

1967 Firebird convertible.
It has been in the shop for over a year for body and paint and ended up with a new frame, sub-frame connectors and almost every new metal body panel. It should be out of the shop in the next couple of weeks. Just in time for Plunkett's car show in London.
I completed an engine swap with an LS2. Paint is Cherry Red. The interior is leather closely matching the original parchment colour and stitching .
Updates include a Dakota digital dash, LED halo headlights, LED tail lights, 68 side marker lights and a chrome steering column.
The transmission is a six speed with a posi rear end with 4:10 gears.

This car belonged to my dad, for 23 years. I only drove the car once, the day after it was stolen and found. I went to retrieve it.
My dad loved his grand children very much, and because he loved them, he mistakenly promised this car to all seven grandchildren. He was on in years and no longer felt comfortable in driving this car. So, it sat parked for about seven years. To get him out of a bind, I purchased the car for $3500, that way he could give each grandchild $500 and keep everyone happy.
I have worked on the restoration for the last 5 years. When he last saw it, his only comment was “it looks brand you”. This past October, I registered the car for the 2018 Motorama in Toronto, to be held on March 9th. Tuesday March 6th, my dad passed away. I was devastated, but my friends and fellow club members of the Rodmasters Car Club stepped up to the plate. 5am Thursday morning they showed up at my door step, took the car to Toronto International Center. They setup up and cleaned the car until it was spotless. We had my dad’s funeral Friday, the first day of the Motorama. Saturday, I had the opportunity to go to the show and see the results of my friend’s efforts.
Saturday afternoon, my son and daughter-in-law were with me. We sat down for the awards presentation. My daughter-in-law asked me if I had a chance at any awards, I replied, “not a hope in hell”, knowing all the other nice cars in attendance.
About 20 minutes into the awards presentation, I heard “entry #331 …” I held my breath; did I hear right? Then “1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, owned by Sergio Succi, First in Class” Went up thinking; no can’t be true, and thinking of my dad the entire time. After accepting the plaque, sat back down and totally lost control!
The emotions of that week can never be duplicated. My dad finally got some recognition.
