New project

By GaBandit

I've been thinking a lot lately of how to get my 83 Trans Am to stand out from the rest of the 3rd Gens on the road. Aside from the motor and performance that set me above more than half of the third Gens, i need some way to make my car and individual. I've been doing some thinking and drawing and I've finally found a way to make that happen. Most 3rd Gen camaro/Trans Am have a hood scoop or a ram air scoop, i want that muscle look aslo but my project actually takes me back to an earlier time when Trans Ams had a shaker hood. I've started to create shaker hood for my 83, right now i'm in the planning stage and hopefully it will work like i think will, because as far as i know no has a shaker hood setup on a 3rd Gen. I hope to be the first.

You know about 10 years ago (before I had my Trans Am) when my friends had Trans Am's, I thought about doing something like that with my S-10. I ended up grafting the center of an IROC hood into my S-10 hood and used Buick LeSabre hinges on it to flip if forward. If you do the shaker, get a plain Firebird hood without the offset scoop and I think you'd have a '83 Trans Am the way it should've been done originally!
