Looks like the shaker is mounted to the hood, too.
WHAT IS UP with that steering wheel??

Not to be stupid, but I remember John from the t/v show CHiPs drove a gold T/A exactly like this with the formula scoops and the T/A shaker...... always thought it was neat.....

It's not that bad.  I don't know why someone would want to do it though.  It ruins a nice looking Formy hood and serves no real purpose.

That wheel is an easy fix...even if the entire column needs to be replaced.  I do wonder if they thought that wheel was an improvement.  But the stock wheels in the formy's weren't that great either.

Well,
The car isn't even a Trans Am.
A Trans Am would be a V87.
Doesn't bother me at all.
Everyone has a right to be different.
After all, it is his car.
If he can't sell it, then change it to sell.

Doh!
I was just looking at a '74 Trans Am too!
My mistake, yes, it should be W87!
Thanks for pointing that out!

To each his own,   But there is enough room on there for a couple more.

Steering wheel is from a Grand Prix and if you remember the car from Corvette Summer it was done the same with the hood also.
