Alex Trebek: It’s what brought you face to face with your own mortality, because the asshole pulling out of the Circle K in it was too busy being self important to look to his right before making his illegal left hand turn.
I have known a few GM F-Bodies in my time: Pod’s Trans Am, Phid’s Camaro Berlinetta. The Firebird “Esprit” is a different sort of catch. We thought they were cool in the ’70s, even with the automotive equivalent of a comb over, the front half vinyl roof. Not as cool as Trans Ams or Z-28s, mind you, more of a hot secretary kind of cool.
My 7th grade anthropology teacher, Mrs. Kuhn drove one. This one is a ’77; hers was a ’74-76 version. Van Halen was right – I had it bad for my teacher.
