Description: I purchased this 1978 WS6/W72 Trans Am from the original owner in August 2000 upon my return to the States from Okinawa, Japan. However, I let it sit without attention for nearly five years and am now trying to get it back on the road.
The car unfortunately sat outside for about three or four years, and managed to get water down into the engine compartment. It appears the seal around the hood scoop was incorrectly installed (must have been replaced at some point) and the drain plug was blocked. The carburetor was severely corroded and it appears water or condensation got down into the intake.
