Fixing up the y88

By pwrcat4000

Filed under: 1978 Pontiac Trans Am (Vrooom AKA tidnaB)

Well this is my first "blog post".
I am tring to get my 1978 Y88 Ta ready for the bandit run 2012. i first bout the car around the summer of 1983 for $2000. It had 50K on it at the time and I did not know it was an SE car or even what that was I just wanted a T-Top trans am. I dove this car all though high school, College, and College again, then bought a 1994 chevy S-10 in 1997 To co to college AGAIN!. at that time it was showing 294,000 miles. It is now at 305,000 miles I obviously will keep this car as long as you can still buy gasoline. Last summer i rebuilt the Pontiac 400 for the Second time first rebuild was in 1985. When I came back from Iraq in 2006 it was smoking so bad the police would pull me over when ever I drove it.
Last week rebuilt the front end and replaced all the body mounts now the front end is solid time to work on the RUST. Here are current pictures. Here
