Rocky II TA
...answers to a few questions:

It is an automatic trans.
No T roofs
This is one of three used in the movie.
It was purchased from Adam Pontiac. The first two were sold.
There was no signature from Sly anywere on the vehichles. One of the TA's was in the news in the early 80's because the owner was able to get Sly to sign the title when he was in Atlantic city.
I heard an owner of one of these has posted a thread on another forum. I'am still looking for him/her. If you know this person, please hook me up.

Thanks


Was that you that posted on the Yellow Bullet forum?

I saw this movie during the summer, I dont know what its called but it has a white 76 400 4 speed ta in it, It was all about drugs, alcohol, teenagers, alcohol, and of course muscle cars. I MEAN there were so many muscle cars like everywhere. If you guys remember tell me. I know that in one scene the seniors hit his butt with a bat, and he was a baseball player. Zach that i one of the best trans am videos I have ever scene, it would be even better if you incoporated some parts where you could hear the v8

Oreobarr,
That movie is Dazed and Confused, and I believe he is driving an SD 455, but could be wrong... Love that movie, and it was filmed here in Austin,Tx!

Watched it Sunday in fact, called Otis, about a serial killer to never got to go to prom so he keeps kidnapping girls and trying to make them into his Ex-girlfriend to go to prom with him.

Hes got a red 77-78, it had the low profile shaker but I'm pretty sure it had Fisher T-Tops.

There's a TATA in this Volkswagen commercial. When he's looking at the 2nd gen Camaro, you can see the TATA next to it in the background. I had seen the commercial a few times before, but hadn't noticed it until now!

Can't forget the 77/78 that Jan Michael Vincent and Burt Reynolds drove in Hooper. It's a cheesy movie, but I like it!
