Taken in 1985 in Davison, MI at the park.  A 1975 Trans Am, silver on black.  I don't have a picture of my blue on black Formula w/455.  I've been trying to hit up some friends back then to see if they have a photo.  We'll see.

Thanks for posting guys!

Brock -- in retrospect, would you have tried harder to keep any particular one of them knowing what you know now? :-\

Rich -- you car appears to be a dead ringer of a friend of mine except his was a 4 speed.  I have the build sheet for that one -- interested in seeing it? ???

Jeff -- I suprised!  MOST of the GM ones appear to be relatively in one piece! :o ;D

Ta2dbandit... Nice looking Birds... even the Camaro looks good.

Jeff... you've owned some of my favorite cars... after Firebirds of course. Looks like a 70 Mustang, 68 Charger and a 70 Cougar... I'd love to have one of each. :)

Rich... I've really become a fan of silver on a T/A.

Rick...You have a friend that IS a car??   :D :D

Good guesses on the years, Keith...you got 'em all right. I'd probably trade all I have now for that Charger back :-\

Hey -- if Jerry Van Dyke's MOTHER was a car, then my friend can be a car...or don't you remember that show? ??? :-\

(OK --so he got me on my typing -- the washer was buzzing telling me it's done... ::) )

Rick, that car was a 4-speed, 400.  It was a great vechicle but being a Michigan car it rusted out on me and I got rid of it.

AC?  Factory AM/FM stereo?  If so, then it was pretty much a daad ringer for my buddy's car (<--- emphasis for Jeff).  Wanna see his build sheet, or do you have yours? :-\

All of them for one reason or another!

The 92 camaro was a mint 25th anniversary
the 89 GTA was completely stock and a grat car
the 83 TA was quite possibly the fastest car i have ever had
the mix 77/78/79 was a car i created from several that i had. It was a cool creation. Also had the engine from the first car i ever owned!
