2000 FIREBIRD FORMULA WS6: Project Dirty Bird

Project Dirtbird lives up to its name. Thanks to the US Military, this car has been all over the world and even had a stay in Hawaii. We rescued this ‘Bird from the elements and will attempt to bring this 2000 Firebird WS6 to its full glory. It will get used and abused as we plan to push it hard on the autocross, drag strip, and most certainly to and from work daily. While the car already houses an LS1 5.7-liter engine and a T56, there’s always room for improvement. Follow along as rebuild this once iconic machine, turning it into a high-performance dual-purpose machine.
