27. 1969 Pontiac Firebird
The 1969 Firebird was a little different than the years that preceded it. GM had designed this particular car to compete with the Mercury Cougar. The 1969 model featured bolder styling of the front clip. This was done to further differentiate the car from its cousin the Camaro. Although both the cars are relatively identical the Camaro and the Firebird had a few things that set them apart. The Camaro, for instance, was a more utilitarian design, whereas the Firebird had more stylistic elements to it.
This being the last year of the first-generation Firebird, there were some great features and badging. The next generation that came after this would be one of the longest-running models in GM history. 1969 is often the less coveted of the Firebird models. The powerful V8 engine was still there and the car had a memorable design. The convertible version is rare, but if you love the open-air feeling of a muscle car, you can’t go wrong with it.
