About “bdaz81ta”

I was influenced at a young age by watching Smokey and the Bandit. Back in highschool my girlfriends dad bought a black on black 78 t top TA with the gold hood bird,... it was a done deal for me and I had to have a Trans Am!! I bought my first TA @ 18 and have owned 5 more since then. My BDAZ81TA has been in the family for 12 years. Its an origional Pontiac 301 4bbl carb automatic. The motor has been rebuilt 40 over and all other drivetrain has been reconditioned as well. I love the style of the Bandit with the T Tops off turning heads all day long! This is not a car you see everywhere and every one that I speak with has the same story, " I wish I still had mine"Check out my garage to see my other Pontiacs. RIP Pontiac

About “GTA”

Finally managed to buy this car which was in Charlotte....for a cheap $1800.Wasn't sure why it was so cheap until I saw it.Someone had spray painted every interior piece red including the door panels.The original interior was Saddle Tan before it was hacked.The good though is the car was professionally painted Ferrari Red and had an Engine and Trans professionally installed.A 1988 Corvette 350 TPI,aluminum heads with ~400 Hp and a TCI racing 700R4 Auto Trans.Well worth what I paid for the car.However I'm not to keen on the Digital Dash option on the car since they are notorious for failing.

Specs for “GTA”

The "H" code 4-barrel 305 was swapped out for a 1988 Corvette TPI 350.I'm sure the engine was done by a professional just by looking at the engine but as to what was done,I don't have a clue.I do know they did enough to back up the engine with a TCI Racing 700-R4.And it will break the tires loose on the 1-2 and the 2-3 shift.Seat-of-the-pants feel she has in excess of 400HP.I haven't done any times on it yet but she'll burn the hides off those Gatorbacks.
