No way.  That's the downside of "it's your car do whatever you want".  Want to make any bets whether or not it will sell?  I bet it gets zero bids.

Well... I don't think it's one of those things where the car is supposed to be the focus... it's the canvas for the "artist" in this case... the car is a tribute to John Travolta's acting career... the interior is obviously Urban Cowboy... It's just art in my opinion... and most abstract interpretive type art... i don't really care much for.  That being said... I wonder if some of the new Bandit interior was inspired by the rustic interior of this TA???

Being a George Barris custom, I would think that it would always be worth something.
More, after he dies.
Just the way things are.
Not that I would buy it, as I want other Trans Ams alittle bit more.
OK, alot more.
But, if I did have/own it, I would leave it alone.

Here here!

Im a fan too, but thats just down right ugly, it reminds me of an option that Ford UK did for some of their cars around the same time....



They were called the X pack cars and where avaliable as an expensive option.
Power is nothing without Control.
