Post Rust Bucket project (1979 Trans Am)
Well I finally got my 1979 Trans Am.
I always wanted a shaker rood t-tops fully loaded. 403 auto.
Has a lot to do but little by little I am going to rebuild it.

i seen that car in person and it was too much for me to want to do as I was gonna make a 10th anniversary clone car for my mom as she owned one till 1993 when she sold it. I hope you bring it back to life. Im still looking for a car to either make one or hers as I know its still in the GTA area.

I have minimum 1,5 years for her to finish the law course so I think I can put the car in one piece or to put in a million pieces than put back together lol. Hopefully no screws and parts left over this time lol

I came across a good deal in a 1980 clean shell with a 400 so I decide to get it.

The Idea is to make from 2 one car. But everybody is betting that I gonna make 2 of 2 lol.....I think I am becoming predictable lol.....

Got the 1980 started today.
Got a new breaks on it. calipers, pads, rotors, new bearings, new rad, new altenator etc .... all came with the car.
Dropped a few onces of gas in the carb first trial the car started.
Got the tranny cable connected.
Breaks bled
New tranny fluid and around the block I went....
The only issue this car has is the wiring is a disaster. So gonna need a good cleam up and replacement.
