Built between the year 1967 to 2002, the Firebird was originally designed as a pony car. Meant to compete with the Ford mustang, the Firebird Formula underwent many generations filled with changes and transitions. The model was up against up-and-coming sports cars from General Motors, Chevrolet, and Ford, making it necessary for Pontiac to offer a model truly different from the rest. Pontiac’s focus was to create a model that stood out from all the rest. Firebirds were also remembered for their speed and agility as racing cars and underwent modifications to maintain to tier racing stance. After three generations and countless modifications, the Firebird Formula ended production.
