This is my pride and joy: My 1976 Pontiac Trans Am. My dad bought it as a "Father and Son" project about three years ago.The car has the original "numbers matching" 400 engine & it runs & drives great. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts nicely, the car always starts for me & I feel confident driving it anywhere.
There are no rust or dents, and there have never been any. - It's just a very nice clean car that has been kept as original as possible, except that the interior has been reupholstered, and about 2 years ago my dad and I repainted the car the original color with the help of a friend of his in the restoration business and had a brand new set of decals put on. Also I had a brand new exhaust system put on. My dad and I did a lot of the work on it ourselves, learning as we went along. He surprised me by giving it to me as a college graduation present last spring.
My brother told me about this "black Trans Am" he saw on Hwy 64 in AR. on his way to work. I told him the last thing I need right now is another car as I had too many projects going already. He said this one looks pretty good and the sign said runs good ! It turned out to be a true Y84 SE well long story short I "had to" buy it. I have owned this car since May 2007. REBUILT the transmisson in 2009 and the engine in Sept 2010.
