Title: pic's of my graduation present!
Post by: 2pfl on July 16, 2010, 04:54:52 PM
here is my 1975 trans am that my dad restored back in the early 90s. it has the 77 front end because my dad always wanted a smokey and the bandit trans am. he recently gave it to me for my high school graduation.  ;D

Appreciate it. Most grown men with jobs can't even get these cars. I hope you pay for something on it to help you appreciate what you have..

Title: Re: pic's of my graduation present!
Post by: 2pfl on July 16, 2010, 05:52:25 PM
not 100% i know my dad said it was out of a 72 grand ville. im new to the car so i dont know much about it. he never drove it, he was always busy with work and stuff aroudn the farm. so this sat in a barn for many years. we would take it out once in a great while, wash it up and drive it but then put it right back in the barn. i will ask him what exactly is in it and get back to you. but i know she is pushing 550 hp from what he has told me. this is one fast car. i have drove it once so far (only because it has no insurance and no collector plates on it yet) i did take her for a spin down the road a few days ago, only went 80, not a very straight road.

Id like to know what all has been done to the 455 to 550 out of it building a 400 costing a fortune to get about 450 out of it.

my first car was a 62 plymouth valiant. slant 6 and three on the tree. 4 door. yuk.
Sold it and later bought a 69 barracuda. again a 6 cyl. I was 14 when I got the valiant. 16 with the Cuda.  That poor car was a michigan car so it was rusted beyond repair. Had to junk it out. I put the motor into a 72 duster. Now I had a blast with it.
As for graduation. I got enouph money to put new exhaust on my Mustang and a boom box. Oh and a bottle of green label Jack Danials. (times were alot differnt in 1984.)Congrats on your graduation and the car. Take care of the diploma and the car.
