The Hot Bird – a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with a T-top – was introduced into the Hot Wheels line-up in 1978. I found this black version at a garage sale yesterday. Oddly, it was the only Hot Wheel I could see at the entire sale. And even better, it was in the free box! As I always say, never pass up a free Hot Bird.
It’s great to have a large family looking out for cars for you. My oldest brother found this next Hot Bird for me. The blue version from 1980 is quite a bit more valuable than the black one above.
