Thought Id show you my pride and joy....
« on: June 18, 2013, 05:21:57 PM »
Hey Guy's been hanging around here for a while and thought it was time to show you my pride and joy...
Normally I'm at Trans Am Country but thought I'd show you my toy....
That being my 1979 10th Anniversary Trans Am, picked this one up last year from a ladie school teacher from Ohio.
Some of you may of seen my first car that got destroyed in transit ?







Funny how things work out as this one's much nicer, she's running a freshly rebuilt 403 Oldsmobile engine with cam, edelbrock manifold, headers, new carb and more....
I've done a fair bit of work to her over the past winter, just in time for spring and summer cruising......

Interior Wise :
New Carpet and Dynamat
New Front & Rear Seat Covers
New Door Trims
New B&M Megashifter that was a gift from my son's A+A+A+
Reco Engine Turned Dash Bezel & matching Mega Shifter Surround
plus more

Exterior Wise:
LED Rear Lamp Kit
18 X 9 Billet Snowflakes
275 x 45 Nitto's
Pedders 2 inch Front Springs & Global West 1 1/2 inch Rear Spring
All new Bushings Rear same for front plus balljoints etc etc
Re-raced the diff centre

Hope you enjoy,
Phil





















I'm also in the middle of doing a running gear restore along with trim on a sun burnt Arizona 1978 TA. my RAT-AM
And another 1978 which I'll start restoring next year....Plus I'm just putting a deal together on Black 1979 SE....
Yes I am addicted..... ;D ;D

Phil,

I have seen your ride on T/A Country. I love it....very good looking car. Have your tires ever rubbed the wheel wells?

No all good fronts perfect, rear good so far, but with a full boot and people in the rear they'd get close....
but that will never happen  ;D

idiots lashed my car through the wheels instead of pulling the body down....
That was a brand new set of snowflakes destroyed in one easy step as-well.

I have to say you got the stance bang on height wise with your new wheels and tires . I don't like a lot of extra wheel well and yours look just right
