Post SMM is restoring a 78 TA
he had the motor and trans rebuilt, had the body work done and painted and now it sits at our mechanic who is replacing the wiring (at no charge) on it.

He had the wheels done, they look real good

Those wheels look good but what a pain to clean.

I loved my 78 Trans Am, great car, wouldnt mind having it today.

progress?

My cousin bought a lot of those one time (like 40 of them). He made a good bit by selling them as either finished, projects, or parts.

it is still sitting at the mechanics. He thought it had the wrong intake, smm got the correct one. he has been trying to tune it and can't get the slight miss out of it.

He found out that the guy who redid the motor put the wrong cam in it so the motor guy had to replace it
