Throughout the following decade American auto manufacturers lined up to take jabs, all staking claim to be the first, until the ‘60s when the Big Three really went at it. In the peak of the muscle car era, then Pontiac division chief engineer, John DeLorean developed more fuel for the already raging inferno, the GTO, and only 3 years later as head of the entire Pontiac division genius struck again with the 1967 Firebird.
