Thanks to Rick Hale and his extensive photo archives, we get to share this photo circa September 1968 (a month after opening). This is Tim Coburn and his "Twist of Lime" E/Gas Barracuda running a 273 cubic inch combination. Considering this was the inaugural year that Firebird came of age (and if you look close under a magnifying glass, you'll actually see one of Wayne Wright's motograders in the background), this is a pretty rare and ultra-cool photo.
