Our 1978 Trans Am
« on: June 20, 2007, 12:07:32 AM »
Here is the Trans Am, in 2004, the day is was removed from its 26 years of undisturbed storage. This is as the car was, still quite clean. The car was inherited from my wifes father.



Here is a picture of the odometer. Yes, that is an original 1,999 miles! The car only has 2,300 miles on it now.



Here are a couple pictures of the vehicle after some minor mechanical maintenance and only a quick wash and wax. We also put new tires on the car, the square ones didn't drive so well!

How'd you get such a good shot on the odometer? I tried shooting my 1972 rolling over to 260,000, and this is what it turned out like:

That's with a 6 megapixel camera. >:(

1. Your camera is focusing on the objects in the reflection.
2. You have to wipe the lens of mayonaise. :)

Trying using the macro function of your digital camera for extreme close-ups!

I did post it a while ago on this site at http://www.78ta.com/photo/visitors.htm. I've just been lazy and never posted to these forums until now.
