Last updated Dec 7, 2009
ive owned this car too many times lol,i orig bough this 80 turbo indy pace car back in early 98 off white bridge road in west nashville ,it was a true pace car edition,had fresh built 455 pontiac engine,350 trans,posi re and still had the 4 wheel disc.the seller tried to tell me the 15x7 snowflakes came factory on it as i knew it came with the turbo rims which he probaly kept for his other t/a.i owned it for several months then sold it to my uncle which was a big mistake(dont sell a hotrod to a drunk lol) he didnt own it long and sold it to my stepmother who didnt own it long and sold it to a friend of the family who drove it to his farm and let it let for 4-6 yrs til i bought it back again,the holley carb and battery were missing so i replaced those and drove it home with fresh gas and it ran like a champ again and even made the hr trip home,i had planned on selling the drivetrain and using the turbo hood for my car as somewhere in time my turbo hood was swapped for a shaker hood,i ran the numbers on the engine and it turned out to be a late 71 455 HO which i thought we be worth a lot wrong i ended up selling the drivetrain with the hole car cheap but i got my hood lol,the buyer of it i kept in touch with as we both were into pontiacs and mopars and he wanted to pull the drivetrain and put into another car so after several years later im in the talks of getting the body back which ill prob use a couple small things off it if anything.im not gonna post all the cars ive had that would take up too much space lol but ill give a list of them,list of previous owned ones are over at screamingchickenchasers.org
i ended up buying it back again and pulling engine and selling the body to my brother.
