Hmmm....now that you mention it, I guess I haven't scanned those yet...:-\ :-\

OK -- will try to get that done here shortly.  But yes, the only one that got cracked up was the 84 TA. ;)

The '98 is gorgeous and I still can't believe the deal you got on the '89 Bandit II. In the words of Napoleon Dynamite: LUCKY!  :D

Ya,
I agree, that one would be nice! ;)
Now, on that Bandit II, I thought they were all built on Firebirds, not Trans Ams.
Am I wrong?

Just wondering,

All you gotta do is whip out the checkbook and keep adding zeros behind the number until the guy gives in... :D :D ;)

I wish that I would have taken pictures of my cars....

My first car was a 68 Buick GS,  It was kind of a girls car  yellow with a blk top.  It moved well paid $900.00 for it in 1973.   Traded it for a 69 Nova SS with a 350. This is the car that I painted 3 or 4 times.  Sold it for $800.00 in 75 or 76.  Some time around there I got my hands on a 69 Z/28 for $1500. It was Dusk Blu with White stripes with a Blu int.  Ran great  but RUST RUST RUST. I drove it for a few years, sold it, bought it back and then parted it. WHAT A FOOL I AM. Got a 68 GTO in 78, ended up selling it to a buddy who still has it.  Sometime in 75 or 76 I bought my T/A. Still got it. I sure wish that I had PICTURES....


Geez  I forgot about my 75 Formula, Silver 400 auto with red int.  I wish I still had ALL of them

After seeing all the cool past treasure pics, I thought I would show mine.
76 TA with cars and concepts t-tops, 79 TA, and a 88 GTA. The 79 was my first car. The 76 had a dual 4 455 lol. I sold the 79 to a friend that introduced it to a huge tree about 6 months later.


I sold the 76 and bought this 68 GTO. I had it painted carousel red.


Here comes the Judge! I bought this 69 Judge. PHS documented RAIV 4-speed. The engine,trans and hood were in the building. In the background is a 70 GTO hardtop.


I traded the 88 GTA for this 94 Trans Am GT. What a piece of junk. I hated this car. It was in the shop every 2 months for some reason.


I sold the 68 GTO and bought a 70 GTO Convertible. I done a frame off restoration on it. Loved that car. 6 years of blood, sweat, and tears.lol I also traded the 94 TA for a 96 WS6 TA. What a car! I also had a moment of luck and ended up with one of Mark Martin's Winston Cup cars.


I sold the Judge to Peter Serio because I needed a nice trailer for the cup car. I also sold the conv. because of an IRS issue with the cup car. lol I also got rid of the 96 TA. Apparently I'm not too smart. ::)

Now I have this. 79 WS6 TA that I am building from the ground up. The friend of mine that wiped out my first car let me raid it and I got all the parts off of it that I could use.



It looks good in the pic but it had serious issues. Roof problems from a poor attempt to install t-tops and about 1/2" of bondo all over it! I found out about that when chunks of paint started falling off. It is going to be very nice when it is done though.
I also sold the cup car.  :)

Hey Jeff, I like that black car with the white stripes. ;)
Which engine did it have?
