About “bandit”

My brother told me about this "black Trans Am" he saw on Hwy 64 in AR. on his way to work. I told him the last thing I need right now is another car as I had too many projects going already. He said this one looks pretty good and the sign said runs good ! It turned out to be a true Y84 SE well long story short I "had to" buy it. I have owned this car since May 2007. REBUILT the transmisson in 2009 and the engine in Sept 2010.
