"Hello, I have been enjoying your site for years! I finally have a Pontiac of my own that is worthy (much more than worthy, actually) of appearing on your site. Could you please post these pictures? The car is a survivor (not restored) 3,100 original mile 10th Anniversary Trans Am. It is one of only 1,817 built with the high-performance T/A 6.6 Pontiac 400 V-8, Borg-Warner Super T-10 4-speed manual transmission and 3.23 posi-traction rear. It has never had any paint work and appears brand new. The story behind this car is a neat one.
When I was 19, my dad helped me to buy my first new car, a '79 Trans Am. It was not a 10th but rather, a low option white WS-6 car with blue interior, 403 Olds and automatic, A/C, stereo and not much more. It was not exactly what I wanted (the 10th Anniversary 400 4-speed was!) but how could I complain? Few 19 year olds were cruisin' in a brand new T/A! Anyway, the desire for my dream car never subsided. About ten years ago, I started looking seriously. After many flights to far away cities and multiple disappointments, I finally found my dream car in a climate controlled museum in Georgia sitting next to a 4 million dollar Duesenberg!
The car was virtually flawless with only 2,400 miles and still sported its original Uniroyal white lettered radials. The climate controlled environment preserved the car beautifully; I had never seen one that looked as nice as this one, not even when they were new. No door dings, no faded spoilers, no flaws of any kind! Even the A/C blew ice-cold. A deal was struck and I flew home to Maryland and anxiously awaited the delivery of my new T/A. Upon arrival, I changed all of the fluids, tuned it up (it still had the original plugs, wires, rotor and cap), changed the tires and gave it a good detailing. It runs better than any '79 I have ever driven and looks even better. When I drive this car, I am 19 all over again! Thanks for letting me share my story and keep up the good work."

"Hi, I just e-mailed you but I just found the link to ad my car to your awesome site! I have a 1989 Pontiac GTA Turbo Trans AM. It's car number 396 out of 1555 that were made. The only options were T tops and Leather on my car. It has been collector bought and owned since new. The car has 28,000 on it now but you would think it was 2,000 because of the way it was taken care of over the years. I am the 4th owner. The car is all stock other then the tires and battery. The radio still has the protective film over the display and the rims still have the original bar code stickers on them. The barcode has worn off but all 4 rims still have the sticker.
I plan on keeping it stock as I always wanted a real mint turbo car. I have the original owners kit that came with my car. None of the previous owners applied the pace car stickers to the windshield or doors and they remain in the kit along with the key fob, cassette, (still in the plastic) and owners supplement. I also have the original window sticker from the car. The 20 anniversary plug wires were removed when the car was new and Denso plugs and wires were put on the car. I have the original plug wires in a plastic bag along with the boots in mint condition. I was lucky to get this car from people who were this meticulous with my car over the years. I have been collecting everything I can find on this car as far as Indy collectibles, Turbo Trans Am collectibles, and all the manuals and paper work I can find on the car. It's a fun car to drive even though people really don't notice it or what it was. I think I like it that way! :)
I plan on keeping this car for a long time. I've had it to 2 local shows so far this year and won a trophy both times! The car was never beat on and rides real smooth and quiet down the road for a t top 3rd Gen. car. All of the things that normally show wear and abuse on these cars do not show on mine. The wing is original and in mint condition. The badges are all original and still shine gold. There is no squeaks or rattles when you drive down the road. It still has the original air cleaner in it and everything works 100%. I might just have them burry me in this one! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the pictures of my 1989 Pontiac Turbo Trans AM Indy 500 Pace Car!"

"My name is Bob Hamm and here is a picture of my Anniversary Trans Am. I purchased the car four years ago in Southern California. The car had been restored once and had won three car shows . The interior was changed to gray leather with 10th Anniversary embroidered on the head rests. At the time of the restoration, the silver replacement interior was not available. The car is currently being restored once again. The body has been stripped to the metal, frame connectors have been installed and a new look will be given the old girl. Still keeping with the 10th Anniversary theme but suspension, wheel and tire upgrades are in the works as this is written. A complete new exhaust system has been installed with a performance cat and Flowmaster three chamber mufflers and 70 style tips to keep it quiet. This car is my daily driver and gets a thumbs up where ever it goes. This is the latest in a series of Trans Ams and Formula Firebirds I have owned in over thirty years of being involved in the Pontiac hobby."
Bob owns several other Firebirds, one of which is a red '74 Formula which can be seen over at the 1974 Firebirds Lot #2 and he recently purchased a 1972 Formula for his daughter Mallory which can be seen at Project Firebirds Lot #5.
