They were purpose built machines born out of the developmental project for Pontiac's WS6 suspension program to which Adams was chief engineer. As a Pontiac special projects engineer. Herb was instrumental in the development of the Trans Am and SD-455 engine packages. among others. He also raced a host of highly competitive Firebirds and Camaros in SCCA events. Herbs race cars were built by himself and engineers Tom Nell and Jeff Young in their spare time sans factory backing. After leaving Pontiac in 1973. Herb continued on his own. creating F-body chassis upgrades to forward his own racing efforts. Herb built a '76 Fire-Am prototype employing his special chassis components and presented it to Pontiac's John Schinella and Bill Collins. They approved of the car. and since Pontiac was interested in IROC at the time. he was contracted in late 1976 to build eight Fire-Ams to replace the Camaros in the series. The Fire-Ams performance was simply outstanding. but unfortunately. Pontiac racing in a showroom-stock-style venue with celebrity drivers at the wheel didn't come to fruition. Herb sent some of the eight cars to automotive magazines for testing. The resulting coverage was very positive. In order to not waste the effort. Herb pursued the idea of building F body tuner cars for street and road racing. Herb states. Though Pontiac's proposed race program didn't fly. we still knew that we had a good car that performed better than anything the division was building. We asked Cars and Concepts' Dick Chrysler and Dave Draper to build a turnkey package to be sold through Pontiac dealers. The endeavor increased the price by $1. 00-$2. 00 over the premium already paid for the vehicle. As a result. very few Fire-Ams (or Cheverras. the Camaro version) were actually built at Cars and Concepts. >.

Koen OngkiehongDear Classic Enterprises. /p>Just bought an SS100 Jag replica from Ronnie Craig - cannot wait to get it delivered to Calgary. just trying to sort transportation. So far experience with Classic Enterprises - has been superb. (Then received a few days later)Well Ronnie & team - the ss100 Jag arrived today via TFX Transportation - she's even better than your photos and video depicted. Thank you guys for your amazing care. assistance and service. A first class company whom I would VERY HIGHLY recommend to everyone looking for a classic vehicle - your service is second to none. I cannot thank you guys enough!Geoff FrostDear Curt. /p>Just a note to thank you for a wonderful car-buying experience. My purchase of a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air was an easy transaction and you and your staff were more than accommodating. The process and the arranging of some changes before the car was transported to me. here in Oregon. was gratifying. I also appreciate your referral to Allied. who picked up the car within four days and delivered the car. without a hitch. in their enclosed carrier. Prior to contacting Allied. I had three brokers who promised delivery. but couldn't get the job done - a wasted three weeks. As an out-of-town. long distance buyer. it was not cost effective to make the trip from Oregon to Cedar Rapids. Iowa to personally inspect the car. In that situation. between the numerous photos you provided and an independent inspection. ordered by me. by a professional classic car inspection co. . I felt the purchase - sight unseen - would still be a good way to go. I was not disappointed. Thank you also for your many calls and emails to me throughout the process to make sure I was happy with the process and that the transaction was going smoothly. I would highly recommend your services and the quality of your inventory. Warmest regards. urtis A. Jacksonville. OR Dear Ronnie. /p>I just wanted to drop you a line or two regarding my recent purchase of my 1969 Chevelle. My initial call was answered by Curt. a real gentleman. and after me explaining my needs he transferred me to what he called his "Ace". That was you Ronnie and was he correct. after only five minutes on the phone I felt comfortable and trusting of what you what you were telling me. To me. the car buying process must feel right. and if it doesn't. you'll know soon into the transaction. Your knowledge and experience really paid off for me. my family and I love the car and would recommend your organization. and you. to our friends and family. I have recently joined a local club and two of the members knew of you and had purchased cars from you in the past. Jon did an excellent job putting the final touches on the car and too was easy to talk to. With your pricing being in line and in many cases better than the other collector car dealerships. I can say. I will be back. Thank you again. hillip D. Dear Ronnie. /p>I recently purchased a 1991 Corvette ZR1 from Classic Enterprises. The car was as advertised and we have been very pleased with the purchase. Ronnie handled the first part of the transaction and Curt finalized the ownership transfer of documents. Therefore. we had an opportunity to meet. work and get to know each of them. They demonstrated a sincere knowledge and interest in the classic car business. I would not hesitate to purchase another car from Classic Enterprises or refer them to a friend. Rich Hein Dear Classic Enterprises. /p>I am very happy with the professional people at Classic Enterprises. Ronnie is very knowledgeable about these cars. and very helpful with the sale.
