Nice car!
And nice to see people all over the world enjoying owning these cars too! ;D
Are you a member of the Swedish Trans Am Club?
Is Uffe still racing, after selling his 20th Anniversary Turbo Trans Am?
Tell him "Hi" from me.

Hi guys!
Yes iīm a member of www.tacs.nu ... Havenīt seen Uffe for a while, if i do i will sure say Hi.
Trans Amīs is a very popular car in Sweden but they are very expensive if they are in good shape. I have won price for my car in lokal car meetings, thatīs always fun.
I have some friends who have "Y82" TransAmīs so there is pretty many nice cars over here..

Here is one, (red interior)

I agree!
That is a beautiful car as well!
I wish my dad would get into these cars!
He flys small airplanes, and even took acrobatic lessons.
Before he got his IFR, he would always go up to Big Bear Lake (in California) where he has a house, from Torrance, California.
He wanted to go one time, but there were low clouds, so he couldn't fly.
He asked me if I could take him up there, and he would pay for my gas, and food.
I said no problem.
Driving thru the mountains to get there in my black '81 Turbo Trans Am (heavy modded), I had to pull over, he got sick.
Ever since then, he isn't too happy to ride with me in my cars! ::)
And that car wasn't even my fastest!
Does your dad go and have fun with you, with these cars?
