68 Pontiac Firebird. Among the many ways that Pontiac attempted to differentiate its new Firebird from the Camaro was to offer the Firebird in five different flavors, rather than one basic model that could be tarted up with à la carte options. For 1967 and 1968, Pontiac even used variations of the tagline, “The Magnificent Five… the Pontiac Firebirds,” to tout its new pony car and its five different option packages.
