Default August '08-'09 Buildoff 1985 Firebird "AKA FLAMING CHICKEN"

Ok maybe it isnt a chicken, but thats what my GF calls it so Im just gonna use it.

Ok so I know its late in the game and I havent been really active here. Hell a lot of you guys probably don't even know me cept for some of the old fellas round here. But I got me an 85 firebird about a month ago and I planned on doing a bunch of mods to it. So here she is and the list of mods Im planning.




Current mods:
new radio/cd player
new seats

Mods to come:
New interior
twin turbo
new rims
repaint
trans am bodykit
amp/subs
flowmasters

BTW I already got the OK from B1G to post this.

Looks like its in pretty good shape, minus the front bumper. As a KITT lover I'm automatically a Firebird lover. What engine does it have? 4cyl, 6 cyl, or 8 cyl?

I got a couple of things done today like installing the seats and new dash pad.

Here is my old dash pad and seats.




Heres my new dash and seats. Much more comfortable and looks much better IMO. I also installed the new radio.





And heres the amp I just got, I need to hook it up so its just sitting there right now.

Yea I know the engine is a 2.8 originally but its the same block as the 3.2 and it was replaced by all 3.2 parts by the original owner such as pistons and whatnot to make it a 3.2.

BTW I just got this in the mail. Anyone care to guess what its used for? And yes it is related to my car.
