Jay Leno-Featured Rockford Files Pontiac Firebird: The Backstory

You may have seen the segment on Jay Leno's Garage (see the promo here) featuring the 1978 Pontiac Firebird originally driven by James Garner on-screen on The Rockford Files TV show. Mike Rowe joins him for his own “Roweford Files” drive around Malibu in this fully restored, great looking original screen-used Firebird. We wanted to know the history of this car. So we asked star-car blogger Jim Suva of “The Suva Files” blog, who was a consultant on the car's restoration. Turns out, this car has quite a history. Check it out!
