Default The "Flaming Chicken"

Firebird, sorry didn't think to record the model years, but the one with the really bad case of gas is the newest. The colour got seriously out of whack on the black and gold 74 (should have shot in Raw).

Nice series Ira! While the subject is the same, each image is unique! I like the effect of the water droplets on the hood of the last one? Glad that you entered it in the Monthly Challenge thread!

Bring back many fun memories of high school. We knew every single one that was in town.

Interesting to see how a legendary logo actually changes through the years. Since you mentioned about the flaming chicken, I gather you weren't a fan of the Trans Am, were you?

Quite the contrary, I think it is a deserved legend from a time when most American cars were pathetic (remember the Mustang II Ghia?!?! ). I just wasn't a fan of the hood graphic. Today however it is now a piece of history worth preserving, especially with Pontiac riding off into the sunset.

Mustang did go through a pathetic stage - I made the mistake of buying a 1980 model year. Was that a pathetic sports car! Sold it a year later and decided since there wasn't a fun car out there, I'd buy a truck.

Can't blame you, cars didn't start getting "fun" again until the late 1980s.
