Yeah, I thought they were pretty cool looking, and different then the standard louvers most people had on their Camaros & Firebirds.

These were nice because the side openings were large enough to squeeze smaller hands in to clean the rear window, and the back section was hinged so it flipped up to be able to clean the window

Back in high school 1970 I had a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 that was a holy terror on the Mustangs and Camaros.

I bought the twin of that car brand new. 5.0 with a 5 spd and t-tops. Loved it too- never should have sold it.

I had a 1983 Firebird in those same colors.

That was the year Firebirds had body-colored bowling-ball wheel covers. I discovered it was advisable to silicone glue those onto the wheel, and mine actually survived the life of the car. I think those were removed and/or fell off every other such car I knew about that year.

My car was no tire-burner, but it kept-up OK.

edit... looked sorta like this...

Wow, lots of F-Bodies! My first car was an '86 Cavalier 2.0L 4 speed stick. It was my dad's beater and I bought it from him pretty cheap. It was piss yellow with NO options. After I fixed it up, I quickly grew bored with how slow it was.

I found an 86 IROC in great shape except the people I bought it from thought it needed a motor. Long story short, it didn't but by the time I realized that I already had a worked 350 ready to go in. Still too slow, so I got a different cam, headers and 3" to the back with a cut-out and 3:73s. Had to have a custom stereo too, so after that I was pretty much out of money. At 17, that car got me in trouble! It was worth it in the end though.

Had one too. Fun (but fragile) car.

This one was unique. '70 Olds Toronado GT. Ram Air 455 with front wheel drive. I nicknamed the car "snowplow." Was my ski bus for one season. Could light up the front tires if you sneezed though.

Mine was a 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda 340/275 that I picked up new ($3800 cash) when I returned from Vietnam. The picture shows a black one with a shaker hood and a spoiler which mine did not have and the color was medium autumn bronze instead of black.

Went from a 100 hp ford ranger 2.3l to a 69 Camaro with a 350 4bbl with headers.

wrecked the truck, but hardly a scratch on the muscle car.

SAME HERE. I had a 76, silver with red interior. Had a 305 V8 and would kill a tire in less than a minute. Boiling chunks of flying rubber...on one side. I held the record for the distance from the local Burger King drive thru window, straight out of the lot, right turn and to the next stop light...then POW, time for a spare.

I could hang with the Z28s of that era.
