Could This Have Been The Coolest Car You Could Buy In 1979?

We're talking 8-tracks here, too.

Today's muscle car survivors are the Chevrolet Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and Ford Mustang. We're not taking any of the three for granted here, but we're still old enough to remember when there was a GM division called Pontiac, and one of its most famous models, the Firebird. Essentially a twin of the Camaro, the Firebird, specifically the Trans Am, seemed to have a little more attitude, and a bit more style. The height of its popularity came in the late 70s in the wake of "Smokey and the Bandit."

Aside from Burt Reynolds, the star of that movie was that totally bitchin' black and gold-trimmed T-top Trans Am. But both Pontiac and its Firebird are permanent goners. Fortunately, there are still plenty of old Firebirds still out there, but this one in particular we really crave for.
