Beautiful T/A, it's a shame you pulled it apart while waiting for a garage to be built. Hope you didn't put the cart before the horse (oops, already did that frown image) wink image.

Photo of a 1977 Pontiac Transam (Trans Am)


I bought this car in 02 while in highschool. We did a basic body paint interior resto and had it ready for my senior year. In late 03 I pulled it back apart to redo the engine tranny and suspension. The car is currently half taken apart, waiting for my garage to get built so I can repaint and make it more than just a nice driver.

Just bought year ones 17" snowflakes, future plans call for updated brakes, performer rpm heads, cerullo seats like the year one car and maybe fuel injection. It'll need a better radio as well.
