2012 TAC Forum logos
« on: January 03, 2012, 04:33:50 AM »
January 2012, Aaron Babbert's 71 formula clone (aka...BuckeyeOcean71Bird)



Aaron's 71 started its life as an Espirit, but now lives as a Formula.  Wearing a stunning coat of Atomic Orange accented by Year One's new 17 inch all aluminum rally 2's and a stance that would scare off any would be racers; this firebird stays true to the stylish heritage that made it so popular 30 years ago.  Other points of interest are the crisp interior lines that are improved upon with new procar rally bucket seats that have all of the creature comforts yet retain the original good looks.

I'm glad everyone is enjoying the logos.  I'm all for giving a car the spotlight, as I have done that in the past and TAC was the first to have a "Bird of the Month" back in 2002.  Sadly I didn't continue it after the big crash.  This time I wanted to make the car and the owner more a part of the site and I think the logo is a great way to do that and that is really what TAC is about.  The people and the cars....without that TAC is just another forum.

Technically today should be March, but thanks to scientists and that pesky gregorian calendar we use leap year is needed.  To be honest I couldn't wait one more day to share our newest forum banner for the month of March.  In honor of St. Patty's day TAC is green...Brewster Green.  These birds need no introduction, but the owner deserves massive props.  Brian owns not one, but two of these cuvitied Brewster Green TA's that are a one year only color for the '73 model.  On top of that they are both SD455 equipped birds.

Keith did you ever think about getting a t-shirt or hat made from that banner ? Now that would be COOL! Wonder if a written consent would be granted?
Congrats and the car looked great all month long bro!

No offense but I am looking forward to tomorrow though. Cheers, Brew

Nice car Mr. March, but your SD can't stand a chance to my STANG.

Let's see if your precious moderators can fix my hack.  Maybe next time Mr. Bandit won't make his password so easy.   :twisted:  Time to upgrade the forum.

3 days late, but not by accident.  May marks a monumental point for TAC as we are officially opening the site up to other firebird generations.  With many of our members expanding their flocks to multi generations it seems right for the site and the community.  With that said....TACs first other generation logo is none other then Robbie's immaculant Sunset Orange Metallic WS6 TA.  Robbie has been a active member since the day he registered and has helped many members hunt, discover and decide on the perfect 4th gens.  As his posting history shows he has owned many 2nd and some third generations, but the 4th gens clearly have a special place in his heart.

I value everyone's opinion and take them all to heart.  TAC will always be a 2nd gen site at heart, but there is no ignoring the trends of the firebird community and\or isolating ourselves from that community.  The number of other gen purchases, projects and just plain questions has been here for quite some time.

I gotta agree to disagree on the 2nd gen only thing. Robbie's car is just plain beautiful no matter what year it is. Personally, I think some of the 4th gen WS6 Ram Air Trans Ams are some of the best looking American cars ever made. They deserve their place on TAC.
