Dkm #186 — Macho Trans-Am #186 (out of 203). This car just "fit". Really sucks gas when doing 120mph (Arizona has some long, flat, strait roads!). Performance - Dennis & Kyle Mecham aftermarket project. Fun Factor - off the charts! T/A 6.6 (Pontiac 400, not Olds 403), 4 speed Muncie.

Pros

Much loved classic

Cons

like most American cars of the 70's it has more weight than the suspension can handle

25

Worth The Money — Great in a straight line. Very heavy car. Is quickly becoming the restoration project to have. Many restoration parts becoming available. Check out Year One Smokey and the Bandit tribute. There are many ways to to upgrade the performance of this car to make it a modern day contender.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Low end grunt, instantly recognizable classic, SHAKER SCOOP!!!, disturbs elderly folk

Cons

Gas mileage, holes in the floor (getting fixed), disturbs elderly folk

35

Not The Fastest, But Definitly The Most Fun! — Love the classic looks and low end grunt from the 400. Top end is a little lacking (as was many late 70's cars), but overall a very enjoyable car to own and drive. Nothing else like it! Drive one!

Cons

it still needs some work. the windows don't seal and the headliner is pretty nasty from sitting for so long

1977/1978 Trans Am 6.6 — This car was once two wrecked Trans Ams. It was built out of the remaining pieces from the two cars. A family friend Tim Taylor was responsible for that and when he got word that the owner wanted to finally sell it after it sat in his barn for sixteen years Tim called my dad and he bought it. After my dad had owned it for a year I bought it from him with my graduation money. Since i bought it i have put four different carbs on it and finally got lucky with the latest one which was a holley. It took some serious rigging to get it to work but it runs good now. I put a new battery, starter, and solenoid on it also and it finally starts effortlessly. While trying to fix up the holley discovered the used tires my dad bought broke a belt so i bought four brand new uniroyal tigerpaws. It now mechanically runs very awesome. The t tops are amazing. i think they should be standard on every car. It is a great cruising car. It isn't real fast but i could drive it all day with the radio off and never be bored.

Pros

cheap to buy and fix up

Cons

Some parts are not made anymore for them

55

Pontiac Trans Am — Its a great classic muscle car. Easy to fix up and make it your own. You can buy them cheap and its is really easy to find parts from dealers to return it to almost mint condition. They are very fast for an old car and their acceleration is pretty good too. Its a great car and its fun to drive.

Pros

comfortable, eye turner, dependable and easy to drive

Cons

GM should have never halted production

105

Dependable Cruisin Machine — was my brother's car he bought in 1978 with 4000 miles on it, he left it to me when he passed away in April 2007. I restored it in 1991 and it is in wonderfull condition, only had 9,000 miles put on it since restoration. I love the car just wish my bro was still here to share it again.

The Trans Am Is A Timeless Classic With Tons Of Power — I owned one of these bad boys for a bit in high school. She was the fastest hunk of junk in the parking lot!
