The Pontiac Firebird is a classic American muscle car that was first introduced by General Motors in 1967. It was produced under the Pontiac brand until 2002 and was designed to compete with other popular muscle cars of the time, such as the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro.
The Firebird was known for its distinctive design, which featured a long hood, a short deck, and a sleek, aerodynamic profile. It was available in a variety of models, including the base Firebird, the high-performance Firebird Trans Am, and the limited-edition Firebird Formula.
The Firebird was powered by a range of powerful V8 engines, including the iconic 6.6-liter V8 that produced up to 400 horsepower in the later models. It was also available with a range of transmission options, including a four-speed manual and a three-speed automatic.
The Firebird was a popular car among car enthusiasts and was featured in many movies and TV shows, including the popular TV series "Knight Rider," where it was famously driven by the character Michael Knight.
Production of the Firebird was discontinued in 2002 due to declining sales and changing consumer preferences. However, the Firebird remains a beloved classic car and a symbol of American automotive history.
