About “? 1982 350 Cross-Fire ?”

1982 350 Cross-Fire Injection engine from my Vette. Some guys took these out because of poor performance, it goes fast enough for me.

About “Trans-formed: Part 1”

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.
