Thanks for the comment. It's not show worthy, but it's a great driver paint job. Some blems but not too bad. The decals are supposed to be gold/tan.... I'll swap them out later.... and get gold snowflakes.

This car was sold in Florida from Sheehan Pontiac in Lighthouse Pt, FL.
It moved to Cali in '81 by a serviceman stationed in Ft. Ord in Montery County.
The fella I bought it from, bought it in '93 at the Turlock, Ca swap meet.
It's not a true Cali car. But it passed Cali emissions testing last year. Still has the cat and stock exhaust. All the vacuum lines, egr and emissions equipment operates as it should.
Crossville is only 30 miles West of me. This is a drive.

My most recent 2nd Generation F-body. Purchased as a birthday present to myself in Jan. '09.

Flew from Tennessee to California and drove this car 2400 miles back home across I-40.

This Trans Am holds all the qualities I desired for over 25 years.
WS6 (4-wheel disc brakes, upgraded steering/suspension)
W72 (hold-over '78 model Pontiac 400 destined for the 4-speed cars of '79). Last year of the "BIG" Pontiac engine.
