1978 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 Additional Info:

1978 Pontiac - Trans Am -

Engine: Pontiac 400ci 6x Heads - 350 Auto transmission - 256 rear gear

I've owned the car since 1995. It's been my Trusty Rusty. Never broke down or left me stranded.

This car came Buccaneer Red with a camel tan interior from factory but I painted it black inside and out.

I can't complete this project but, I hope to find someone that has vision of what this car can become. This car should be restored and not be crushed or parted out.Maybe a Father Son weekend project. :-) I have 2 younger Daughters not interested.
