|This great photo taken late in the day shows off the stunning appearance of Jeff Kasper's 1969 ragtop Firebird. The car is powered by a stout 400 cid Pontiac engine that was given the right amount of tender loving car all Pontiacs deserve.
The 400 is a 1976 block that was treated to an .030" over bore and fitted with JE forged pistons on reconditioned stock rods. As you will note below, this engine is sporting modified Edelbrock aluminum heads. The heads were milled to 73 ccs and the Performer RPM intake was milled to fit the position of the milled heads.
Jeff's Firebird posts low 12 second runs at 112 mph.
|Note: Jeff repainted the Firebird in 2004 and has provided a few photos to update the page. The car, however, is now owned by his wife. However, Jeff assures me that he still gets to drive it! Tech data remains the same. See the new paint finish below.|
|Top down and ready to roll, the mid-afternoon sunlight reveals the true exterior color of Jeff's Pontiac.
The car is very streetable and is driven by Jeff 2-3 times a week. He occasionally runs the car at Fayetteville Motorsports Park.
Jeff lives in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
|Jeff's wife's car is a looker in any color. Nice paint job.|
