Lot #702 - Pro-touring Firebird built by Pro-touring specialist Prodigy Customs. Over 3,000 hours invested. No expense was spared using the very best components available. Accomplishments include 2007 SEMA Top 10 Muscle Cars of SEMA, two appearances at the Performance Racing Show, invited by Goodguys to compete for Street Machine of the Year and "High Performance Pontiac" 7-page feature/cover. The Holy Grail of Pontiac engines using ultra-rare aluminum block and detuned street Pro-stock style raised port heads built to 535cid. Custom Hogan's Sheetmetal intake, dual 70mm throttle bodies, nitrous fogger system is plumbed but not active. Tremec TKO-600 5-speed transmission and 3.73 Moser 12-bolt. The best components money can buy were combined for the ultimate in handling and ride. Speedtech subframe, "Prodigy Bar" 4-link rear and Air Ride Shockwaves. The body was channeled for an aggressive low ride height while maintaining full suspension travel, incredibly smooth ride on the highway and excellent autocross handling. The brake system is equally impressive using Wilwood's largest brake set-up including 14" front and 14" rear brakes with custom blue calipers. Forgeline 19" Snowflake wheels with massive 295/30/19 front and 345/30/19 rear tires. The body has many subtle changes to improve the body lines and flow, while not losing the classic original Firebird beauty. Molded rear bumper, billet center fuel filler, billet tail lights, custom headlight buckets and bumper were made eliminating the factory enduro strip. Flush-mounted windshield. Steel roll bar is completely integrated into the body for safety and strength. Interior is custom and built for comfort and style. Power windows, tilt wheel, Vintage Air conditioning, Blue Cobalt gauges, killer JVC/Infinity audio/video system with concert quality sound. Mercedes blue cloth convertible top, custom one-off hardtop matching hood scoops.
