Readers Machine Issue 9

David Benstead dropped us a line about his new acquisition – a rather lovely ‘Bird in a very Seventies shade of brown.
“I thought you may be interested in seeing my ‘74 Pontiac Firebird, a fresh import from Georgia. It runs a 400 with Lunati Voodoo cam, 2400rpm stall converter, shorty headers and an Edelbrock Street Avenger manifold with the original Q Jet.

That combo should be putting out close to 400hp, and is very lively. The interior is slightly tired so it’s getting recovered this spring, and after that it’s just a case of enjoying the car!”

Quite right too, David! So look out for this beautiful brown bullnose with the Formula hood at shows this year….
