Fire Am pic thread
« on: August 31, 2019, 11:52:47 AM »
Let’s get a pic thread of all the Fire Am on this forum in any condition.
This way we can figure out how many still exist and what yrs colors and options

Oh they've already done that on the FA owners page on Facebook. I think it was Jeff's idea, I then took it a bit further. There was 200 VSE kits made between 1976*-1981. Out of that many, they reckon about 20 are still alive. Out of those ones, 8 were dealer fitted with a special bionic eagle at Cars N' Concepts in MI. All very fascinating. (Also makes us more special than macho owners  :cool: although we don't get the privilege of having macho in big letters on the side of our cars  :( )
Take a look for yourself. You can edit this document online and add yourself to it. Feel free to add in all your info, I tried my best to add in other owners factory and VSE options but most of it is just based on what I can see.

Sorry, just saw this. Both cars are mostly Stage 2/ stage 3 cars. Both cars have the Herb Adams roll bar, Corbeau seats, front and rear sway bars, front structure kit, solid subframe bushings, battery relocated. The 76 has the rear spring modification and also the clearanced inner fenders and fan shroud, Koni Adjustable shocks plus the VSE Appliance wheels. . The 76 is also an auto 400 with FItech fuel injection with Street Dominator intake.



The 79 has brake cooling ducts plus Pro touring f body front and rear springs and subframe connectors. It also has SSBC disc brakes, 3:73 Auburn rear and the original 400 with a Tremec TKO 600 5 speed. I am also looking into a fuel injection set up for it in the future. The 79 also has a Rare HO Racing shaker on it.

I was going to ask about that shaker.  How does it mount\function with the hood?  If you have that in another thread I'll see if I can find it.
