This month will spotlight a great person we have on this site and his astounding accomplishment.  This person does so much for this community, and here, that he couldn’t go on unnoticed any longer.  However, he made it possible for us to spotlight him with his recent total restoration.  

Hitman and I are so very proud to finally spotlight our own RENOVATIONS (aka 79WS6Resto here or by his real name of Jeff Adams).  He is here for everyone and always puts a positive spin on every situation.  I am so very lucky to work with Jeff here every day.  Hitman made him a Tech Advisor here due to his tact in answering technical questions and this past year the Hitman asked him to wear a Moderator’s badge here.  Jeff gets along with everyone so brilliantly, even takes care of those from foreign countries (Sir English Firebird) and takes care of them as if they were family.  

RENOVATIONS is a funny man too.  Here Jeff is with some friends.

And Jeff is trying to help out some folks in a handicap area.

Some of Jeff's posts in times past have made me spit coffee through my nose or clean up on isle three.  I prepare myself with diapers but they can only work for so long until they are full.  And then there’s no mention of the cartoon magazine character of Spiderman (need I say more for those that really know Jeff….LOL).  

Then we have to talk about his WORK!  This 1976 50th Anniversary Trans Am was, for less than better words, a pin cushion.  It had more rust holes in it than a cork board.  Check out what he began with and how skillful he put this car back to a drivable work of art.  (Special thanks to Prettybird for giving me permission to use these photo’s for this spotlight).

Enjoy these:









































































Jeff, you’re such an asset here.  Hitman, Rick, Virgil, and I are so very proud to work with you.  So this month we raise our glasses and ching them together with you.  Our friend, well respected advisor, and just a great individual as you are.  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FOR THIS SITE, THE SPORT, AND EVERYONE YOU HELP HERE.      

Congratulations Jeff!

Conratulations Jeff, i cant think of anyone more deserving than you.

Mike, i think i owe you one...   i will return !!

Jeff to me is more like a Brother than a mate, he has been extremely kind to me and helped a total stranger ( and i consider myself to be one of the strangest ) for which i shall be eternally gratefull.

The work he performed was amazing. i was fortunate enough to see the car part way through and then completed, he worked very hard and was consistant.

Enjoy the spotlight and heres to CAR OF THE YEAR !!

There is so much I could say about this person.  Jeff has an aura about him that attract's people to want to be his friend.  He is extremely talented at what he does from bumper to bumper on these second Gen. car's.  As you can see Example of pic's above.  Not only that but he would give you the shirt off his back.  (Thx's for my shirt tAtEr).   Just to please & bend over backward's to make sure you came out better than before.  He is definitely a good friend too many.  Just don't believe GOD make's em like that anymore.  A true brother.  and truly amazing how the Pontiac Trans-am & Jeff Adam's goes together.  an Excellent choice for this month's spotlight.  Job well done !
