That is a VERY sharp car and I commend you for keeping it so nice but that must be boring to have such a nice car and to never drive it.  I could never just have a garage queen.
Yeah same here.

Looks AWESOME!!!!  What size tires?

Year One's 17" x 9" Honeycomb rims along with a set of Nitto 555's, 285/40 for the rear and 255/45 for the front - I really like how they fill the wheel wells.  Thanks for the compliment too!

After taking delivery in March 1977, I basically kept clean and detailed.  Always garaged and covered.  It has held up very well.  Even the original tires are not weather checked.  Interior still smells new.  During a Sept 2002 a magazine photo shoot, mileage was 11,367.  I remember the mileage as I have a photo of the odometer taken at shoot.  Today, mileage is 11,382.  That is 15 miles in nearly 10 years.

I envy you all. I just found out today that our income tax isn't going to be enough to get my car street ready, nor purchase a street ready body to put my motor and tranny in. Which means my dream of having a T/A for my first car is over. It really sucks but nothing can be done I suppose. Keep posting pics guys. I love to see them. Even if its all I can do

Im sorry buddy.  Still keep working on the car though.  I hope your not giving up on it completely.  It took me years of saving parts, saving money etc so I could build a car.  Just keep buying what you can afford and look for deals on needed parts.  your car may not be on the road for your 16th Bday, but it will eventually get there.

I was 18 years old when I bought my 1979 T/A back in 1982.
I have owned my 1983 T/A since 1988.

Dear Not A TA,
This is Tin Indian's wife. Would you please stop posting pictures of your car? Especially ones with er, ummm, sidepipes. I'm dizzy already and have to get up early in the morning.  :-X

Here's a ton of pictures of my 71 T/A clone.  Some good videos too.  I'm always adding stuff as I go.  Bought the bird in July '10 - was a total granny car.  Now its 98% done (need to add T/A gauges). It's definitely worth checking out.   Oh yeah, my 71 455 Lemans is on the site too :)  The T/A went head to head with the Lemans...you can read all about it - 350 vs 455.  I know, the 455 should be in the T/A...

Ha ha, good eye on the steering wheel center cap.  I just got the horn working over the weekend and need to re-center the cap. Thanks.
