What Am I? Shifty

Welcome to another edition of DT's cure for the Monday morning blues -- What Am I?  In this better than being home alone for Christmas game we find a random picture of a car and you get to guess what it is.  Last week's puzzle was a picture of a 1967 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT, that was quickly identified as part of the Ford mid sized lineup from the 60s.  Just what am I anyway?

Update 1:30PM: Congrats to Andrew Liss who solved today's What Am I? featureThis is the rusted hulk of a 1973 Pontiac Firebird Formula found here on eBay

Somebody will buy this 3-speed equipped rust bucket, but it ain't gonna be me.  See a car that might be worth a few words? Send it here:


  1. I am going with Pontiac T1000, still searching for back up material to verify.

  2. That dash looks early to mid '70s, but what by God still had a floor-shifted 3-speed by that time? That shifter and shifter boot look American, but it doesn't seem to be any of the obvious candidates.

  3. Early 70's Firebird.

  4. This "Barn Find" carcass was not given the protection of a barn, unless the barn was filled with salt and occasionally watered.

  5. Had it............late. Buddy in Larchmont had a Camaro with this in HS. Can't forget this stuff.
