    LEGACY CRUISE to Kirkwood, Missouri

       LEGACY CRUISE:   This was one of the ideas that inspired us to start the FirebirdFest!   We thought      "wouldn't it be cool" if everyone could see a lineup of every production year of Firebird in a variety of colors and cruising in order!   Our FirebirdFest committee will be selecting our favorite 36 cars (one from each year) to lead all other birds in a  "Legacy Cruise" in order of production year, and will receive a special windshield banner for this honor!
