1968 Pontiac Firebird

You can find Patrick cruising around West Des Moines in his 1968 Pontiac Firebird.  Patrick bought the car off Ebay in 2009 and called it a “rust bucket.”  Patricks Firebird required a frame off restoration.  All of the sheet metal is new as are the floor pans and trunk.  The engine is a 400 Pontiac with a 400 turbo transmission.  The interior was finished in a 68 Firebird deluxe pattern.
