Whoa! 7-Second V6 Firebird?

Whoa! 7-Second V6 FirebirdDid you say that this clip shows a 7-second V6 powered Pontiac Firebird? How can that be? Well, you start with a 3.8-liter Buick engine (from an 80s GTA) and then you add a pair of 62-millimeter ATP turbos. This eye-catching Pearl White ‘Bird has a unique sound that captured the imaginations of everyone at the Street Car Takeover in Phoenix.

The first pass is of the roll racing variety. The Firebird bumps up against a bodacious TT ’68 Camaro that walks away easily. Next he spanks a late-model Camaro with only bolt-on modifications in the eighth-mile. There’s lots of great dig and roll racing on this video. Check it out.
