1972 Pontiac Firebird

1972 marked a "Tough" year for the Pontiac Firebird. With a drastic drop in the muscle car market, sales plummeted to almost less than half and the Firebird was actually considered to be dropped at GM. To make the matters even worse, GM was faced with a strike that lasted over 5 months, taking place at the factory plant where firebirds where produced. With little changes for 72' the Firebird did gain the new "honeycomb" wheels as an addition.
