78 Firebird Esprit

Matt's Firebird has been in the family for a long time, and is a beautiful example of a clean survivor.  We are tasked with getting her road worthy after had been sitting for 15 years.  We began with a fueling system and brake system overhaul, along with a carb rebuild and repair.  Soon to come will be a complete front end rebuild, and an engine-out reseal and detailing.
