1976 Trans Am - Project Scooby!
« on: February 09, 2011, 11:57:28 AM »
Well folks we were at our friends house cutting out floor pans for our '79 SE and my little brother (only 12) bought  him a 1976 Trans Am shell for $100, actually it will be free if I sell our buddies Indy  Fiero rims for him! It needs a motor and a few little things (gauges, shifter, hood) stuff like that... I guess it is our next project when we get our '79 on the road! He is very excited and I have to say that I am too! I will post pictures of it this weekend, I just couldn't wait to tell y'all.

Oh, and the reason we named it Scooby is that the car has a Scooby-Doo sticker on the windshield! Perfect for a 12 year old!

Yes, he is very lucky! He is thinking of a color he should paint it and rims he wants... I told him he should focus on the engine first! It is currently blue. (Very close to Martinique), but it was originally red we believe. He wants to put snowflakes, honeycombs, or the rally wheels on it. It currently has crager SS rims on it, which my dad has dibs on for his '70 Cutlass! It will make an awesome first car for him!! The scooby sticker has to stay though!

Thanks,
Joe

Ok, I know you have too much on your plate so, If you want I will take the 76 or the 78 off your hands for nothing! I am just trying to help! Oh, btw, today I figured out the Jakes was originally Martinique blue even though it has been painted 3 times, the original color shows on the hinge! I am 99% sure it was Martinique blue from factory!

I am definitely not in the position to buy another car, I have no place to put another! :D Just out of curiosity what are you asking? BTW, the blue '78 you just sold is coming along well! ( my uncle bought it from you) :D

Here are a couple of pics! I will see if I have better ones tomorrow, these were just on my computer!

It needs work but, it was only $100. We have the vent for the fender, and a few other parts. The trunk lid was just set on there, and it needs to be attached. I will get better pics of it this weekend when we clean the leaves off!

Let me know your thoughts!!

Joe
