How long does it take to Over haul an abused Trans Am into a good/fun driver?

Update from day 5... TA is primered, and sanded. Some more work needed, but glass should be in tomorrow, and maybe some paint by Wednsday. They have been really putting in sometime on this thing. Stay tuned!!!

This photo, not representative of the start of this project, but maybe true to the outcome.

Some friends of mine have bought a 77TA that spent alot of its life in the wrong hands. Their intentions are to transform it from junk to a really cool driver. This being done on a budget and in record time. Try a timeline of about 17 days. Not expected to be a Nationals quality show car, but a fun car to take out and have fun in.

stay tuned, as i will try to update this daily as possible.

This project is being tackled by Craig and Sonya Bishop, also known as "77ta" on this site. They sure are ambitious taking on this project with intentions of bringing this car to STARS in just 2 weeks.

Holy crap! I've saved a few cars from the crusher but I'm not sure I'd have tackled this one. Best of luck!
