Hi All,

I picked up my dream 73 Firebird last November. It's actually a little rough around the edges and I figure it'll keep me busy for the next few years.  First thing I had to do was upgrade the suspension to keep her from bottoming out and then refresh the steering to keep her in a straight line.  Now just tracking down some electrical but she's about ready to hit the road.

 

Looking forward to lots of great advice.  It's been about 30 years since I've had a muscle car and I'm a little rusty but up for the challenge.  Thanks for letting me join the community!

Welcome to the forum.  Looks like you have a nice solid 73 to start with.

 

Check out the 2nd gen tech section for some good info. Hit the master index at top to see some good stuff.

 

If you search the web, there's a free 73 pontiac service manual you can download. Use "73 Pontiac service manual pdf" as your search.
