I'm not sure if you ha noticed but of the two cars, one stayed a Firebird, the other was converted to a Camaro and was then able to use he Chev engine which was far more reliable. No point showcasing the new street T/A tire if the engine keeps blowing.

One of the cars had the usual Second Gen door handle, the other used the First Gen door handles.

Thanks for the info, Bruce.  Do you know why one had First Gen door handles on it?

The car must have been a very early pre production body shell. I will see if I have a pic of the car to show the door handle.
