New (to me) 1978 Y88 in Phoenix
« on: August 25, 2014, 10:56:46 PM »
Hello,
Just getting started with this board and wanted to show off my new (to me) Trans Am.  I got it off CL here in Phoenix, AZ.  It took a little back and forth with the seller to get eveything squared away, but finally I was able to drive it home under its own power.  Unlike my Civic Hybrid, this car gets low mpg.  That coupled with a gas gage that is a little off meant we ran out of gas less than a mile from home.  The good news is we only ran out of gas once.

This is what I saw on CL:


An this is what I took home:


Thanks for looking, I will post more from the restoration.

Hi, I am in phoenix too.  I saw the add in CL but since I have a 77( SE 4 speed needing restoration but drives) I was just looking.   Post up when you bring it to a car show and I will try to meet up.  The Pavilions  meet every Sat night and there are usually one or two there.  The cruse  on Central is the 11 Oct and the Pontiac Phx Group will have a spot to park if you are interested.

regards,
Joe

Thanks for the head's up Joe.  Looks like I missed the Cruise on Central this year; I'm getting the engine rebuilt and it is in a million pieces right now.  I'll check into the Pavilions meet up when I get everything back together (hopefully before Thanksgiving).
