About “See Ya WS6/W72”
The car is finally complete after a year and half of restoring. See album for more pictures!
This is number 3 of owning a Trans Am.
Just picked up this baby two weeks ago (11/2009). Found the original owners spec sheet and maintence book where it quotes: "Top speed--131.3, 1/4 mile--14.2. When that was quoted, the car was straight out of the factory with no modifications. Car also has the orginal radio with it. All numbers match except for a few modifications that I didn't do.
As some of you might know, Frank and I have had some issues with this car. Being we are orginally from Long Island NY, I never had a problem with finding mechanics to work on my Trans Am's that I owned in the past.
Living here in NC, we are having a heck of time finding someone that actually knows what they are doing!
Just an update.......Thank you Chumbrother/Mark, for all the tips, and being on "stand by" with our car.
Air shocks where put in (trying not to dip into the Run Fun's and this is just a temporary fix till we get back from the Bandit Run and then leaf springs will go in), shift cable was finally corrected after the 2nd shop majorly screwed that one up, front sway bar bushings and clamps were replaced. Frank finally had a weekend off to do the work, and the weather actually was very beautiful to work in.
I have to say..........I took her out ont he interstate last night, and she ran GREAT! Stomped on it, and the power behind this car actually pinned us in our seats! I was VERY impressed and was shaken up a wee bit because I forgot how powerful these cars can be.

I didn't do this, this was done by the previous owner.
Yes, the current shaker scoop is attached. This was not done by us. I have an extra hood and shaker that is being repainted along with the car and will be put on when the painting is finished.
