Q: Custom Emblem
Today I found the grille emblem for my bird in the trunk, instead of “Firebird” it says “Custom”. I suppose this was part of the pink mist package, has anybody seen this before?
A: This emblem could have come off several locations which might be determined by the type of fastener used for the “Custom” emblem. Possible locations include the hood emblems (used 8-9420185 Nuts for “Overhead Cam”), the front fender emblems (used 6-9420621 Nuts for “Firebird”), front grill emblems (used 2-9789188 Brackets and 2-9785896 Retainers for “Pontiac”) (least likely), the trunk emblems (used 2-9421827 Nuts for “400”), or rocker panel emblems (used 4-9420621 Nuts for “Sprint”)(most likely). I have not seen this before but it could have been a part of the special paint package (Pink Mist) your car came with that year. This would be identified on your body tag with the paint code ‘special.’
