You have a beautiful Trans Am, and I love the 1976 models. It is really incredible that you are the original owner and held on to it after all these years. That's a great story!

I am the original owner of this car. I ordered it from the dealer in March and took delivery May 20, 1976. Car had 1.6 miles on it when I picked it up. I watched Smokey and the Bandit for the first time from inside this car at the drive-in in 1977. Price paid $6,000 even. With trade, it cost me $4,950. This is a low mileage car with only 27,800 miles on it.
