Photo of a 1978 Pontiac Trans Am Y88 Gold SE WS6 (78 Gold SE)


1978 Y88 WS6 bought new by my father from Rod Jones Pontiac in Danville, Kentucky. Car has been in the family since new and has gone through several restorations and modifications. Currently has a 1970 455 HO block with 1973 SD heads. Car has run a best of 12.24 in the quarter and 7.96 in the eighth. All on street tires and without the NOS. Engine has been rebuilt and strengthened since those runs. Estimated 720 rwhp. Getting ready for another restoration. My dad was working on the car when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and he didn't get to finish what he started. I hope to get everything back in shape soon. I know he would want me to do it right.


455 ci bored .030 over with factory 2 piece aluminum race intake. Hooker Super Comp Headers, Holley 800 cfm spread bore double pumper, drag cam, 1.70 roller tipped rockers, etc.
