1978 Pontiac Trans Am Special Edition running ( Smokey & The Bandit )
My '78 Trans Am 400 CID 4 BBL V8, 200-R4 auto transmission with overdrive
and a 12 bolt rear main wth Richmond 4:11 gears. Built in Norwood, OH, it
was shipped to Atlanta, GA and spent all of her life there until I bought
it in August '08. My son Spencer and I flew down to Atlanta and drove her
back - boy was that a blast! The registration is the same as in Smokey &
The Bandit. The rims were reconditioned perfectly and the brand new tires
have less than 50 miles. The interior will be completely restored by the
end of September (new vinyl seats, door panels and bezel are all that's
77 Plantinum Bandit @ The Dyno!
Here is a quick upload of the Dyno session we did with the
Platinum Bandit just after the TA Nats this year.
The Platinum Bandit, is an original 77 SE 4spd TA, that we converted over
to a lot of modern technology to make it a fun road ready car with a lot of
power. The 474 stroked engine we recently built for it with the help of
Butler Performance, will be featured in the next issue of High Performance
Pontiac Magazine. Pushing 585HP off of 89 Ethanol fuel, with plenty of
vacuum and drive-ability, really makes this car come alive! I will be
posting a video of all the updated components and their manufacturers soon.
