I think it was this orginal owner ‘72 Firebird Esprit
(Edit-I’m wrong, I forgot there was a one family owned ‘69 Firebird 350 before that, but I don’t think I kept a picture of that one)

I have owned my 1970 Atoll Blue GTO for over 40 years. It was my first car and paid a life changing sum of $800 (at the time) for it.
