    THE FIREBIRD ENTERED IT'S 10th YEAR A DIFFERENT CAR FROM IT'S EARLY DAYS BUT REMAINED TRUE
    TO THE CONCEPT OF A SPORTY 2+2 WITH A SPIRITED ENGINE. WHILE THE STRENGTH OF THAT
    SPIRIT CONTINUALLY EBBED AND FLOWED, PONTIAC HAD NEVER LOST FAITH IN THE FIREBIRD.
    [​IMG]
    WITH SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT BEING THE SECOND MOST SUCCESSFUL FILM IN 1977, PONTIAC COULDN'T HAVE
    PAID FOR BETTER PUBLICITY. ONCE AGAIN, A SPECIAL EDITION WAS AVAILABLE, HEAD-TURNING WITH IT'S
    BLACK AND GOLD FINERY & HURST HATCHES. WHILE IT DID SEEM LIKE THE FASTEST SET OF WHEELS IN FIVE
    STATES, THE REALITY WAS DISAPPOINTING AS THE 455 WAS PULLED DUE TO FUEL ECONOMY CONCERNS.
