• Pontiac Firebirds in films/tv over the years

    The Pontiac Firebirds have been in many well know films or TV series over the years.

    Rockford Files
    Remember the Rockford files? The main character James Garner plays a private detective names Rockford. He had served time in California's San Quentin Prison in the 1960s due to a wrongful conviction. After five years, he received a pardon. His infrequent jobs as a private investigator barely allow him to maintain his dilapidated mobile home / office in a parking lot on the beaches of Malibu, California. The program was on TV between 1974 and 1980. Many car chases, and in some scenes you can see them building the Twin Towers in the background. The Pontiac Firebird base model not a Firebird Trans-Am.

    Smokey and the Bandit
    This was a film that has 3 parts. Pictures on the right a 1978 Pontiac Trans-Am. The Bandit is hired on to run a tractor trailer full of beer over county lines in hot pursuit by a pesky sheriff. Great film and plenty of burning rubber and car chases.

    80's TV program with David HasslehoffKnight Rider
    80's TV series was about a self-made billionaire Wilton Knight rescues police detective Michael Long after a near fatal shot to the face, giving him a new identity via plastic surgery and a new name: Michael Knight. Wilton selects Michael to be the primary field agent in the pilot program of his Knight Industries-funded public justice organization, the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG). The other half of this pilot program is the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), a heavily modified Pontiac Trans Am with numerous features including an extremely durable shell and frame, controlled by a computer with artificial intelligence. Michael and KITT are brought in during situations where "direct action might provide the only feasible solution".
