About

I bought this car off of a friend for $50 in the spring 2001. The car was in a front end accident and my friend was just going to junk it, but it still ran so I figured it had potential.
I slowly began replacing parts and modifying things until it looked and ran pretty good. I wanted to keep the exterior of the car looking pretty much stock, but most everything else had been upgraded or modified. It was a long process and it would never have turned out as good as it did if it weren't for a lot of help from my friends.
In the summer of 2008, I began taking the good parts off of this car to restore another Trans Am I purchased that was in better condition. I replaced all the parts I kept and sold the car just before winter of that year. It was sad to see it go, but I promise my next Trans Am will be even better than this one.
Please check out my Specs section for an overview of what was done to this car.

Specs

Engine:
1966 Corvette 327
Bored 30 over
Speedpro domed pistons
Duntov 30/30 cam
Crane roller tip rockers
Edelbrock RPM Perfomer intake
Holley 4160 carb
MDS 8.5 wires
Heddman Jet-Hot coated shorty headers
Flowmaster cat-back

I fabricated a custom breather and PCV system so that I could keep the original aluminum Corvette valve covers on the engine (the original Corvette covers had no holes or baffles in them). The car was been dynoed at 240.4HP @ 5875rpm and 276.6 torque @ 3680.

Drivetrain:
700r4
B&M shift kit
B&M Megashifter
Richmond 3:73 gears


Exterior:
T-tops
1985 ground effects
1987 Pontiac GTA rims
Z rated 255/50/16 Kumho tires
Fiberglass daytona hood

The car was repainted in the spring of 2002 in my friend's garage. It actually turned out pretty good.

Interior:
Pioneer DEH-8600MP CD player
2 Memphis PB-140 amps
4x6 Hypnotic speakers
8" Audiobahn subs in the sail panels
7" Audiobahn LCD monitor
2 - 5" Pyle LCD monitors in the dash
PS2

In the spring of 2005, I installed an original mint interior I took from a wrecked 1984 TA with only 40K miles on it. The interior was basically all stock except the custom flamed door panels that I fabricated myself.
