Introduced as part of the 1970-launched second-generation Firebird line-up, the Formula gave a generation of drivers a powerful ticket into the pony car club. The lightest of the four Firebird models, its performance was only trumped by the top-of-the-range Trans-Am, while its popularity was further boosted when Pontiac’s parent company, General Motors, decided to discontinue its F-body buddy, the Chevrolet Camaro Z28, in 1975.

 

Having dropped the ‘coke bottle’ design exhibited by the first generation, Firebirds adopted a look that was to be made famous by movies such as Smokey and the Bandit. The late 1970s -- arguably the model’s golden era -- saw further aesthetic tinkering, including the addition of a slanted nose and distinctive square headlights.

 

Despite the many restrictions imposed following the 1973 oil crisis, when equipped with the high-performance ‘W72’ engine package -- a high-performance version of the 6.6-liter V8 -- the 1977-vintage Formula could still call on 200 bhp, which was capable of taking it from 0-60 mph in eight seconds.

I remember how much KidDEW71 and the rest of my old gang wanted this :( too bad they didn't stick around long enough to see the 'Bird become a reality.
