Hi All,
Well, its time to sell her. As you can tell by my activity on this forum I don't spend time with her any more. She sits in my garage with her cover on, not being appreciated. Its time to find her a loving new home.
Again, it is a 1995 Pontiac Firebird, the only one that Callaway Cars put the entire C8 package on (sands the AeroBody). She is listed on Ebay, search Callaway Cars or Callaway Firebird.
I have attached interesting documents. I am the original owner.

I saw this on ebay today and decided to look here and was surprised to see a post! Hey Bruce, what were the original wheels on the car, when the article was written? Do you remember the name of them? Why were those put on for the article?

I see on your invoice that ZR1 style wheels were put on the car by Callaway and that's what the car is wearing on ebay. Could you take a pic of them? It looks like they have Callaway center caps. I don't recall ever seeing Callaway ever do that before, and I'd like to save a pic of them to my files I save.

Very cool to see this car after all of these years! :thumb1 Good luck with the sale! I posted a link on my Facebook group called 4th Generation Camaro/Firebird History.

The original wheels were the '95 ZR-1s. I wanted the Callaway pinwheels but they wouldn't sell them without the run-flat option and I didn't want to pay for that. They put the Callaway caps in the center at my request.

The article was in the AUG/Sept issue of Sports Car International. At that time they were promoting Fittipaldi Wheels and Perelli tires. They shipped the wheels/tires to me for the article and I had a local shop install them. They offered them to me but I did not like the feel of the Perelli tires, nor did I like the look of the Fittipaldi wheels so I returned them. The ZR-1/Bridgestone RE77 combination was rock solid. The wheels were Fittipaldi Tubolares with Perelli P Zero tires.

Mike Zoner and Mike Vendetto at Callaway Cars still remember this car and myself. I contact them every several years.

Best regards
