Isn't that chrome key assembly under the steering wheel, a hood lock setup?

Ya, but they weren't that low.... were they?  I don't remember seeing the '77's at the Nationals being that low.

Yep, Rich -- back in the day those were that low...and a real turnoff for some of us.  After looking at the rounded shaker from 70-76, and then looking at the truncated shaker with no way to open it short of cutting it up, it was kind of distressing for us TA lovers.  I remember it was part of the restyling that I didn't like at all. :-\ :-\

Better late than never.....
My 76 Trans Am

My 77 Trans Am

And as you can see in that pic (taken when I bought the car) my original unmodified 77 shaker was that low as well (dec 76 build car)

Your cars are RIGHT HOOKERS, did you guys in Aus get them that way? Its very unusual to get a Right hand drive here in the UK but not unknown, but ive never seen a RHD T/A before.

Wow, looking at Leigh's pics I see the shaker is also very low as well.  Can't even read the letters  :o .  Huh, don't mean to be difficult but I would have swore they were higher!  Oh well, don't mean to steal the thread either just having a hard time believing the shaker is that low!

I was thinking it was just the early '77 scoops that were that low. But Leigh's is a later scoop.  ???


Hey Leigh! I fixed your pics bud! Someone flipped them around backwards.
But what's up with your gauges?

And where's the gas pedal in your '77? :o

Leigh,

Why does the scoop on the 77 say 3rtil d.d???? 8)

Rich,

when dad brought the 77 home, my brother has his 73 Brewster green 455 and an AB 74 400, so it REALLY looked weird since there were not a lot of 77s around yet.... and it didn't WOOP as loud when you hit the gas.


The biggest difference in sound I ever had was when I had C&C tops cut inot my 76... first time I stood on it I nearly wet myself.... gas mileage was really bad for a couple weeks......

It was just early '77 production models...Leigh's is early '77 with a build date of Dec. '76.

Ok, I just can't see the ridge down his scoop.
