Default Pontiac Firebird in Mumbai.

Had these pics on (on print) for quite some time. This is one very well maintained American muscle car. The Pontiac Firebird. From what I know, there are only 2 of these Firebird's in Mumbai. One was featured in BSM Motoring as owned by Rajeev Shah. And this is one too is owned by a film personality. Had seen this (or i guess Rajeev Shah's) Firebird once outside Santacruz police station a couple of years back with a flat tyre. Was lying there for 2 days before it was taken away.

The white one pictured below is either rotting away or being restored in a Bandra garage.

Gordon, do you think you can put the Team-BHP credit thingy somewhere it doesn't block the car? It would have been a different issue had it been a watermark, but this really obstructs the view.

Completely agree with you on that Ported. Gordon, try putting it at some corner rather than the centre.
