Just some photos........Not many!!

By SeeYa

Here are some pictures of my weekend in TN and a couple from the Bandit Run 2012.
Comments are always welcomed!!!

Need wiper, pulse switch ASAP!! ('78 Trans Am)

By SeeYa

Need this, like yesterday!! Leaving for Bandit Run on Wed.
We already bought 3 of them and none work!! Must have the 6 or 7 wires attached! Pulse.

See photo.

Local car show and cruise in.

By SeeYa

Won our very 1st trophies for SeeYa in our local car show event. Our son also brought his '84 Firebird S/E to the show.

Now, some of you may say to yourself as to why my shaker is still attached to the hood?
Well, simple reason...............the Edelbrock that is on there now, has a spacer plate, in which it raises the air cleaner up to high. We of course did not do this.
After the Bandit Run we will change the carb out to what is supposed to be there.

Why mess with a good thing when the car is running great!!

Installing the new/rebuilt rear end.

By SeeYa

Frank my husband is hard at work installing the new/rebuilt rear end. We needed to change out the rear end because this one has lower gears, and need it for the Bandit run. I don't remember what gears are in this one. Chumbrother can help me on this one!!
It is not completed yet, but on it's way!

First here, and now on another site!

By SeeYa

When my husband bought me this 78 TA, I didn't realize how much attention it would get. We are very proud of her, and slowly but surely we are putting her back to original. Many things have been changed out since we got it.

There were many questions I needed answer so I found several sites where I could post my questions. One being here and another is the site.

Each and everyone on these sites are FANTASTIC people and have helped me with crucial decisions.

On Motortopia, our car won 3rd place in the challenges. I was amazed on how well she did! I was also very addicted to doing the challenges. lol

On the site, I was again FLOORED by what had happen while I was at work yesterday.

Our car made the "Spotlight of the month"!!
If you would like to see it, go to:

Click on "forum" tab

Click on the picture on the upper right hand side. That is our car. There are pictures, stories, and even a short video.

Thank you all for making our dreams come true!! We couldn't do it without the "know how" from you guys!

Again with snow in the Carolina's!

By SeeYa

Well, once again we had snow. Though today, it reached about 49 degrees and it has all melted away. We are expecting snow again on Monday. I'm so glad I left NY to come to warmer weather! LOL

Snow and Ice in the Carolina's!

By SeeYa

It is not normal here to have snow and ice where we live. I am near Charlotte, and this was an interesting sight to see when most of the people here have no clue on how to drive in it.
We are orginally from NY and know that you just can't take off or stop like you usually do. But, try telling this to people around here! LO
