Buying my first Trans Am!!!
« on: September 12, 2015, 01:15:50 AM »
im buying my first Trans Am!  It's a 1978 4sp 400 factory WS6 W72 with a 3:42 rear end. It isn't running; the owner said the "cam went flat in 2000" and it's been sitting since. It looks nice with original paint but faded and 2 small dents. Original interior looks ok for its age. Seats have rips but dash looks good. Hitman was a HUGE help in me getting it for a decent price and not over paying!  My first step will be trying to buff out the paint and see if I can bring some color back.  I'll also get my mechanic to replace the cam and see if he can get it running again.  My sons and I are very excited!

How is it coming along? What did you do to buff it out? What products? Did they bring life back to the paint? Any pictures? I am in the process of this with mine, and trying to decide which route I want to take with it!
