seeing them side by side i have to go with the blue, that is the best shade of blue to ever grace a car.  plus
i love the marker lights in the front grill on the 71 plus honeycombs are the best. 

i would miss the chicken though big time.

That 71 is freaking awesome. One of the prettiest T/A's you can buy. You should be very proud of it. And your 76

guess you choose to keep the 71, or just testing the waters with the 76 which is very nice by the way.

Ryan!!!!!  That car is SIIIICK!  Good for you man.  Whether you keep one or both, you're still ahead with these beauties.  Weather is looking good for the next few days around here.  Taking 'em out for a spin or two?

Thanks Tommy! I am going to get plates on the 71 tmrw.

Thanks for the Compliments!! I love both cars!! I love the Honeycomb look on the 71 too. It Originally came With Ralley wheels. He gave me both sets. Ralleys are a little rough, Honeycombs are perfect! And Yes, I am just testing the waters, although I am getting lots of interest. We will see what Happens!!

I love how clean these cars are, no pin stripes, no crazy paint, a simple stripe down the middle and a small Trans Am on the fender.  It just is so simple....till you step on the gas!

Yeah. The later T/A's Had to get flashier to compensate the loss of performance.
