About

I have been into these old Pontiacs since the age of 13. I remember seeing my first Trans Am on a car lot in east Texas. The year was 1975! But, it was the 1973 model that became my favorite. I had owned several Firebirds growing up, but still was never quite able to land a 73. Then fate intervened! It was the summer of 87, and I stopped in a local gas store. I spotted the area Auto Trader on the stand and I had to do a double take! Right there on the front cover, a 1973 Trans Am for sale. So naturally, and without hesitation, that Trader was mine! The car was about 3 hours away from where I lived. I made contact with the owner and 3 months later, I was driving her home! Asking price was $3500.00, but after the haggling was done, my account was lightened only $2500.00 dollars! You should have seen the smile on my face as I drove this amazing car back home. Of course, she didn't look anything like she does now. After 20 years, and lots of dead presidents, she has finally reached my dream status. But of course, they're never finished. Always something to do! I drive this car to shows, and she rarely see's a trailer. These cars were made to be driven, and this TA loves the highway! She really likes the gas station too at 9 mpg! LOL...

Specs

This Trans Am is kept basically stock looking, until you get a closer up look. She does have her original 455 powerplant. However, along the way I picked up a set of 71 455 HO #197 heads. So I had them built with high performance internals and speed tricks from our local engine builder. As he gave them back to me, the look on his face was priceless! You have an awesome set of trick heads here, he said! It was very cool to see how impressed he was with these rare and powerful Pontiac heads. So, with the heads, the 455 was outfitted with 40 over Keith Black pistons, nice cam package, intake, carb, and hooker super comp headers. 3" custom exhaust, with X pipe, through a set of Flowmaster Super 40's, and custom built 3" turndowns in the Pontiac style take out the burnt fuel and leave a tone in your ears that you'll never forget!
