1978 Pontiac Trans Am (OLD GOLD)

Last updated May 17, 2007  

Photo of a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am (OLD GOLD)


I got this car in December 2006 with the intentions to restore it. The pictures looked fine on eBay. I won the auction and had it shipped down. Now that it is here, I realized that should have held off because it is a lot worse than it appeared. I pulled up the carpet and there is not much floorboard that isn't rotting away. The trunk has a big rot spot in it too, and the list goes on. Learn from my mistake. Look BEFORE you buy. I'll still go ahead with the restoration but it's going to take a lot more time and money than initially anticipated. You can see the progress on


Original Gold car with Gold velour interior. 400 CID but has Edelbrock performer intake and matching 4bbl carb. The TH350 trans has a shift kit in it. It had AC once upon a time and I hope to get some back in it.
