The Album I attached, is as close as I'll ever get to being there, unless I either hit the Lottery, or gasoline goes back down to .25/gal.

We Support Our Troops
Come Home Safely

The Trans Am Nationals Committee is proud to announce that Pontiac Design Chief John Schinella will return to Dayton for the 2010 Trans Am Nationals car show. Mr. Schinella was touched by the dedication and love our participants have for the products designed on his watch and is looking forward to speaking with more owners this year. Also scheduled to appear along with Mr. Schinella is Pontiac designer Bill Davis whose contributions include the famous hood chicken & Trans Am Territory among others.

In addition to Mr. Schinella's appearance, we are pleased to announce that none other than Pontiac engineer Herb Adams and his son Matt will be attending this year. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Adams, it was due to his efforts to improve Firebird into a capable handling car that led directly to the birth of the Trans Am and later the famous WS6 handling package. Mr. Adams went on to found Herb Adams VSE (Very Special Equipment) through which performance suspension components for F-bodies were offered to the public. Matt has taken the reins of VSE and is in the process of reproducing many of these items today.

Mr. Schinella, Mr. Adams and Mr. Davis will present a seminar on Saturday, 8/28 to answer questions and tell stories about their experiences with Pontiac. It promises to be a great event for any and all fans of Firebirds. Register now for the 2010 Trans Am Nationals so you are sure to make the most of this incredible opportunity!"
