This firebird has been in the works for about a little over a year and finally got finished about two months ago after I came home from Afghanistan for deployment with the Marines. This one is dedicated to my soon to be born daughter. Hope y'all like it and I am open to constructive criticism and questions. By the way I am new to this website and would like to make new friends on here. Thank you.

Very nice build Oziel (do they call you Ozzie?). Killer stance, I like the wheel/tire combo, smooth paint, good work on the decals. Welcome to the website, thanks for your service, and congratulations! (not necessarily in that order)

Why yes they do call me "Ozzy". Thanks for the gratitude regarding the service. I really appreciate the compliment. I dream of taking my cars to a show one day. I have yet to enter one. I really wanna attend NNL east in Charlotte. You should check out my other one with the belair. That was the one I made a year before this one. Kinda crappy but it was my skill level at the time. I'd like to think I improved. :)

Nice Job Ozzy, what's the body color you used there mate B)
I'm an ex Aussie Soldier, good to hear your back home safe from the Afghanistan, unfortunately we lost one of our 'Diggers' over there yesterday (R.I.P) :( .

Hello Helix,

The body color I used was duplicolor rattle can "classic green pearl" 'toyota color' from autozone item number "BTY1597". It just matches so well with my current firebird I actually have so I had to use it due to the lack of actual GM colors that didn't match the project. If you google search that part number it'll come up. I'm sorry one of your diggers was lost out there. I know what its like, when I was out there we also had a bird go down with some buddie's of mine. So glad you like the firebird.

I was actually trying to go for that intially but then couldn't find a part in my spare parts that would duplicate the little lip spoiler that was used so i fabricated that one in the picture. Came out pretty decent though.

Ozzy,
Welcome!! Nice build and thanks for your service!!

Feel free to ask questions. You'll find that most of the guys here are very supportive.

Is there something significant behind the name "FEENIX"?

Later,

As a matter of fact there is, Its my car's name. Its printed just like that on my 97 formula firebird. Its misspelled because "phoenix" was already taken.
