Putting the Muscle back into Classic Cars

1978 Pontiac Trans Am

December 6, 2021

"When I saw the movie Smokey & the Bandit when I was a kid I wanted to own a Trans Am like that."

I originally had a 1977 Trans Am but changed to the 1978 model because I liked the small interior changes.  I found this one in 2012 on Cars on Line with a dealer in Missouri, the Pontiac had been restored and came with the custom rims, which I really liked.  I imported it into Australia but unfortunately the motor and running gear wasn't as anticipated and it took a bit to get the Trans Am to the way I wanted it to run and handle.

How did you get it? Thru a mate, in the paper etc?: 
Cars on Line
When did you obtain this beast?:
