It's a great looking car.  Hopefully mine looks that good when its done.

Hey i see that the last one worked too!! Thank you guys for helping this "rooke" get it done! We sort have gotten off topic, but i have learned something tonight. By the way, the sway bar that i have removed is not off of this car, it is off my drag car, my SE is completely original except for a 450HP pontiac 428. I will try to get some pics of the problems i am having tomorrow. Again thank you.

No prob.  We were all rookies at one time too.  I just joined a week or two ago and had the same problem with pics.  You got pics of your other cars?

Whenever is fine just a question of curiosity.  You'll get the hang of it.

Hey i think i did it! The blue one is my 1981 Turbo Trans am it is completely original. It has 50000kms and has everything you could get on this car. Its a 301 Turbo with an automatic. The only thing that has been changed are the tires.
The 1979 silver Trans am is what i have been making into a drag car. The pic that i gave you is quite old, but you get the idea. It has a 455 Oldsmobile and is running an auto. So far i have put subframe connectors, traction bars, electic fan, gutted interior,456 gears, and so on....
The other two cars i do not have digital pics of.
I'd like to check out what your building , send me some pics......

Go to "My '80 T/A"  in the Restoration Projects.

More very nice cars.  Love the Turbo.

Checked out your car, nice indy pace! Looks like it doen't need much except maybe fresh paint. Nice find! That engine you built looks wicked, at least with a Turbo hood you don't have to worry about lineing up the shaker ;D. I see you had questions about the block off plate, my 81 has a standard map pocket like the pic of the 75 and the access door is on the side if the console for the computer.
