I have been wanting to get some Sunbird shirts made. I saw a line drawing one of a Firebird and thought it was super cool. I found a freelance site on Fivver.com and had this made. It came with high resolution raster/vector files too so I can have them reproduced on shirts and the like. Hoping to get some made soon.

Next I want to get one for Project Phoenix. The idea is it would be like the Roadkill shirts in two or three colors on the print. Like this one.

Confirmed. Nope. The AJE Arms do not need or use the ferrels.

Not bad for $20. Score!

Red,
Very impressive journal. Like was mentioned a lot of work in a very short period of time. Very admirable job so far and don't you like those Pontiacs? How many have you purchased by now?

Ya, get out in that garage, the warm weather is just around the corner.

My first car was a 76 Sunbird. My first hand-me-down daily driver was a 1980 Sunbird. Yeah...They've got a special place in my heart.

Have three at the moment. Two coupes and the Formula hatchback.

Finishing up some house projects but hope to be out there soon! I have a 76 Starfire that is getting striped down too so that's the next project. Then cleaning the garage because there is literally NO room to work out there.

The Starfire was a pretty solid car but no title. I'm taking off all the usable parts except the doors and fenders. We found a guy that may be able to fabricate repair panels; floors, quarter patches, fender patches, door bottoms. He has a business that makes parts for Mavericks so these shouldn't be a problem. He needs a donor car for the project so this is it. Hope to have it over to him in the next month or so.
