Christmas gift to myself

I know I am a selfish one, but my wife said that I could get whatever I wanted for myself. Well I have officially kicked her car out of the garage.


Here is my new beauty. I got her today.

A 78 Trans Am with its original 400 block from Pontiac. I have always loved this year.

All the lines on the car are straight, even the front bumper which has a tendency to wave through the years. The headliner has one small grease stain. But the back seats look like they have never been sat in.

It was a no option car (not even tilt steering wheel) with auto. But I personally think its was a steal of a buy for $4000.00


















PS. I had a friend who is a picture nut take all of these. I have double this # in my computer. If Mike needs them. HAHA. Mikey...host these things so everyone can see them without hitting the links.

Thanks Randy! I somehow screwed up the submission to the forum with those. I have no idea how I did that.

Anyways the car needs some TLC in the engine compartment looks wise, but I assure you she can throw a nice pair of black strips.

i just wished I had the original window sticker and stuff like that.

Yup. Already worked on it a little yesterday.


BTW - My wifey is not too happy with it. She thought I was going to mod the GTO. Which I legitimately was going to do until I saw this offer on another forum. I could not turn down this beauty. She told me I have to build another garage now. We have a 3 car garage and I take up three spots now. We were going to use that for her Solstice. <sigh>

So here is the tally
$4000.00 for the car
$900.00 for the shipping
$600 for tag and tax


Having to pay an additional $10,000 for another three car garage. PRICELESS!!!!!

I reloaded all 15 to your photos, go to Pontiac Historic Services for a documentation package on that car, Here is a sample of the Package
