Autosessive Awards Revisited: Rachel’s 1976 Pontiac Firebird

The Autossesive Awards 2016 is now open for entrants, so we’re looking back at previous finalists and catching up with what they’ve been up to since entering the competition.

Another 2011 entrant was 43 year old Rachel who drove an HGV to fund her 25 year addiction. A 1976 Pontiac Firebird which only cost her £600 to begin with, however it came with a catch, the engine had been completely damaged by fire. But not one to be defeated, Rachel was determined to make it her own and sold her 1974 Opel Manta A series to pay for the necessary repairs. She worked hard for the next three and a half years, learning to weld, rewire and paint in order to keep the dream alive. “However it was all worth it in the end,” said Rachel.
