The 1960s saw the explosion in popularity of absurdly powered muscle cars and their little brothers, the pony cars. The Ford Mustang stands as the originator of this type of high-performance car, but the Pontiac Firebird certainly holds its own as a contender with fans of speed and aggressive styling. For the enterprising young man or woman, the Firebird's 1960's price tag was also attractive. The 1968 Pontiac Firebird was the second iteration of the classic coupe, and many claim it is the best version of the car. It certainly attracts attention with its distinctive Coke bottle body contours. The selection of engines is also impressive, but the 6.6-liter V8 engine taken from the venerable GTO stands head and shoulders above the rest. The Ram Air intake system is a signature feature on the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, which debuted the next year, and the scooped hood of the Trans Am model eventually defined the Firebird. Originally paired with a 4-barrel carburetor, the Ram Air provides excessive power to the wide-set wheels. Buyers lusting after any type of Pontiac Firebird can find a number of choices on eBay, where dependable sellers offer the cars along with plenty of parts and accessories.
