Quotes from Commercial 

When Pontiac introduced the 1969 Firebird. We couldn’t build them fast enough. Some people had to wait. Well, the wait is over.

“Break away”

Right now, you can get immediate delivery on a brand-new Firebird. With smooth, positive wide track handling. You can order up to a 345 horse Ram Air V8.

Right now, you can get immediate delivery on a brand-new Firebird. Impressed, that’s nothing. Wait until you check your Pontiac dealer’s prices. They’ll practically let you write your own deal. And, if you wait for a Firebird after that mister, you may get left behind.

“Break Away.”
The wait is over.”
