Firebirds #1 and #2 sell at Mecum Kissimmee (Updated!)

[Updated Monday, January 18th]

Numero uno and Numero Dos Firebirds to roll off the production line. For all the Fast N’ Loud fans out there (cheers to you), you saw them receive a full concourse restoration on the show from the pretty crummy shape they were found in. You saw them sold. You’ve seen them in the background of our photos after Richard came across them at another auction and just had to buy them back. This weekend went up for sale again and they’re gone for good this time… at least that’s what Richard Rawlings promises to us.

 

On Saturday, both Firebirds rolled across the block individually, one after another at Mecum’s Kissimmee auction. As these two gems rolled across the block, Richard Rawlings went live on his Facebook and talked with fans about these cars and everything coming soon from Gas Monkey Garage. If you missed it (shame on you), you can still watch the entire live stream on his Facebook now.

 

As any car enthusiast knows, taking your cars to an auction can be a huge gamble. You never know how the room is feeling and how the money is flowing. With a beer in hand, Richard watched as the first two Firebirds ever produced rolled into the spotlight to find a new home. How did they do? Well, see for yourself below.
