1977/78 Pontiac Trans Am

The love of the American Muscle Car will only continue to grow and flourish.  The 1977-78 Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am is at the heart of this following, and an original car with the right options can bring up to $50,000.  I have a love for this car, I guess I would have been eight when it first arrived at dealerships, but I had an epiphany no less.  Somewhat like the fist time rock and roll registered in my brain, which was The Police, Spirits in the Material World, while driving somewhere in South Dakota, while my older Brother played his cassette at my Fathers lack of enthusiasm.  So back to the car.  I must have seen it in a magazine, cruising down the road,  or the movie Smokey and the Bandit itself, which gave this car timeless fame. I just knew I fell in love for the first time.  The 1977-78 Trans Am’s front air dam was unique for those two years, which in my opinion is the best looking.  I’m sure there are restorers all over the country, but my research came across Trans Am Specialists of Florida.  They seem to know their way around these classic cars of the seventies.  When a car was more metal, glass, and rubber, than plastic, powder coat, and computer chips.  These were the days when Pontiac did built excitement!
