My love of Trans ams comes from My Oldest brother John had a think 76 50th aniversary T/A and his at the time girlfriend had a blue maybe 77/78 not sure was only 7/8 yrs old. My oldest sister Barb, had the '80 Formula that I bought in '89. Of course Somkey and the Bandit.

I think I got hooked on Trans Ams from "Knight Rider". Back when I saw that show, I thought the third-gen Firebird was the bomb. Still love that car to this day and would love to own one, but "Smokey and the Bandit" got me permanently hooked on second gens. So I guess it was a combination of Knight Rider and the Bandit that got me into TAs.
