Spotted this luscious, ultra clean gen 1 (’67 – ’69) Firebird drop top sitting pretty on 7th Avenue South. Assuming the hood ornamentation and functional scoops are of the real deal variety, this baby is sporting the 6.6L monster mill from the GTO with 325 HP and the optional Ram Air induction system (functional hood scoops, higher flow heads with stronger valve springs, and a different camshaft). Obviously this owner enjoys the best in life when it comes to classic vehicles as this is one of the more collectable Firebirds you can get.

This gen 1 Firebird convertible looks good in plum crazy purple. Damn good actually. The car appears to be original, most evident by the rusted out front fascia, but the form-fitting top seems to have been replaced within the last few years. Unfortunately we won’t be seeing any reincarnations of this Chevrolet Camaro platform mate, which debuted in 1967 alongside its GM sister vehicle.

With all the commotion about retro-inspired muscle from Detroit, it’s nice to gaze upon the inspiration now and again. Sporting arrest-me red paint, this gen 1 (1967-1969) Camaro looks ready to pounce on a drag strip near you. As any owner will tell you, the honkin V8s available in ’67 (350 cu in or 396 cu in) do not disappoint when it comes to smoky burnouts and general adolescent behavior.
It’s been 4 years since Chevy pulled the wraps off the Camaro concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. A new president is in office, the Yankees moved stadiums and Britney Spears seems to be popular again. But it might have been worth the wait thanks in no small part to a design that alludes to the past without using it as a crutch. The 304 HP, Direct Injection V6 and starting price under $23,000 doesn’t hurt either.
What are the chances that a 2008 Challenger pulls up alongside the circa 1970 model responsible for its creation? We guess they are pretty good because that’s what happened at this wine vineyard parking lot in South Hampton. The 2008 model (Orange) pays homage to the original (yellow) with instantly recognizable design cues like ventilating double hood scoops, black eggcrate grille, round dual headlights, chrome gas cap, and rear spoiler.
