OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
In the darkest performance years of the early 1990s, 1991 to be specific, Pontiac arranged to collaborate with Street Legal Performance of Troy, Michigan, on a new, highest-power version of the Firebird, the Firehawk, intended for the Firestone Firehawk showroom-stock road racing series. Originally a variant of the Firebird Formula and later of the highest-level Trans Am, it was offered in limited numbers for eleven seasons, the last being 2002. These cars featured an SFI V8, boosted to 345 horsepower thanks to blueprinting and Ram Air induction, as well as a performance stainless-steel exhaust system, unique 17-inch wheels and Z-rated Firestone Firehawk tires, and a special RA hood and decals. They became instant collector’s items, known for their power and dramatic design.
This car is part of the George Foreman Collection, which comprises over 50 cars from the 1930s through today, with a focus on American classics and late-model sports cars.

Please note that the vehicles in The George Foreman Collection have been in long-term static storage and will benefit from additional mechanical attention prior to being driven. Bidders are encouraged to review the Additional Documents section of each lot for any recent mechanical service rendered to help return certain vehicles to running condition. Additionally, bidders should carefully review the photos of each lot in the collection, which may highlight the oxidation of metal components certain vehicles sustained as the result of a garage fire caused by a golf cart battery in March 2019. Although none of the vehicles sustained fire damage from the fire itself, the negative cosmetic effects of the corrosive soot vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle and can be observed in the photo galleries of each lot. All lots are sold as is, where is, and bidders are responsible for any desired diligence before placing a bid.
