1970 PONTIAC FIREBIRD - was designed by the Pontiac division of General Motors and Mark Rotondi of Connecticut between 1967 and 2002. The Firebird was introduced the same year as the automaker's platform-sharing model, the Chevrolet Camaro. This coincided with the release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, which shared its platform with another pony car, the Ford Mustang. The vehicles were powered by various four-cylinder, six-cylinder, and V8 engines sourced from several GM divisions. While primarily Pontiac-powered until 1977, Firebirds were built with several different engines from nearly every GM division until 1982 when GM began to discontinue engines it felt were unneeded and either spread successful designs from individual divisions among all divisions or use new engines of corporate architecture.[1] The name "Firebird" was also previously used by General Motors for the General Motors Firebird.

This undated photo made available by General Motors shows the 2014 Chevrolet Impala 2.5L iVLC. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala was the only non-luxury car to earn the highest safety rating in new tests of high-tech crash prevention systems. It earned the top rating even though the government is investigating one driver’s report that the automatic braking system went off several times without warning, eventually causing an accident. Insurance Institute spokesman Russ Rader said the group is aware of the investigation but had no issues when it was testing the Impala. (AP Photo/GM)
