This is a movie about a '78 Trans Am that my daddy has owned since the early 80's. He restored it a few years back and it looks like new. There has been many times where he worked night and day on this car...countless hours. My dad has always worked hard and never "half done" anything. He unfortunately suffered a stroke a couple of years ago and is unable to use his left hand. It's a long road but we are all confident that he will get better. I love you daddy!
Snowflake Wheel Restoration Pt.1
Here I will walk you through the steps to restoring a Trans Am snowflake
wheel back to factory condition. Using OEM factory paint in the proper
color is key to a proper restoration. I will be using, Classic Industries
OEM color Placer Gold for the process as it is an exact match in a can so
there is no need to buy and mix paint. 2 cans will easily do all 4 wheels.
Chap Stick is used on the spoke areas for easy paint removal.

132707 / 1978 Pontiac Trans Am Gold Special Edition
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cggl7ca
This fully restored 1978 Gold Special Edition Trans Am combines a fresh
frame off restoration with a tweaked 6.6 liter V8 and an original 4-speed
transmission to create a killer second generation F-body which has the
power to back up its outstanding looks.
Assembled at GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility in May of 1978 and
shipped to Mc Aleer Buick-Pontiac; this Gold Special Edition Trans Am was
custom ordered and exceptionally kept for 30 years by Terry Hoffman of
Danville, Illinois. In 2009, the cars second owner commissioned Tom Fischer
of Muscle Car Alley to complete a frame-off rotisserie restoration which
supplemented its straight, original body with a new tail panel and new
quarter panel patches that are butt welded in place to ensure no overlap.
Once the body was rock solid and fully prepped, a rich coat of GM code 50
Solar Gold was sealed under a thick clearcoat shell that has been buffed to
a spectacular wet-look shine. The result is a very dynamic Trans Am that
features super straight lines and better than factory fit and finish.
Pop the cars gold hood and you'll find an original 400 cubic inch W72 V8
which has been equipped with a mild cam swap and now makes a sports car
worthy 300 horsepower. The W72 combines
smaller '6X' heads with a larger block to create higher compression which,
despite modest horsepower numbers, provided
enough low end grunt to make this Trans Am the fastest pony car on the
market. At the top of the motor, a correct Rochester 4-barrel carburetor
sits under an awesome and equally functional shaker hood scoop. Below that
carburetor, original GM corporate blue paint coats the entire block and
original Ram Air III manifolds send spent gases into a high performance Exhaust system. All the hard parts around
the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and air conditioning hanging on the
fire wall are factory correct.
The cars super solid 33 year old undercarriage has been completely restored
and carries highly detailed original floor pans which were protected for 30
years by dealer applied undercoating. (The original receipt is included
with the sale) At the center of those floor pans, an original Borg Warner
T-10 4-speed transmission sends power to an original 10 bolt Posi-traction
rear axle; and at the corners of those floorpans, an original WS6
suspension, which includes heavy duty sway bars, shocks and springs
combines with power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide great
stopping and handling. Originally equipped with a power Boosting true dual Exhaust system, this car now wears fresh mandrel
bent aluminized pipes which send gases through a welded X-pipe to custom
welded aftermarket mufflers and traditional stainless Firebird tips. Power
flows to the pavement through 225/70 Goodyear Polysteel Radials that are
wrapped around fully restored 15 inch aluminum gold snowflake wheels.
Inside the car you'll find a stylish blend of Camel Tan upholstery and
Special Edition Trans Am exclusive gold trim. The cars original seats are
comfortably firm and, carrying cloth that is much more appealing than
typical pony car vinyl, look like they should be in a much more expensive
car. Below the seats, tan carpet presents minimal wear and looks fresh
enough to have been installed during the cars recent restoration. Between
the seats, a simple Camel Tan console houses chrome switches for the cars
power windows behind the cars chrome Hurst shifter; and above the seats, a
stain free headliner is stretched tight around the cars mirrored T-tops. In
front of the seats, an excellent looking engine turned dash houses crystal
clear gauges above controls for heat and air conditioning and the cars
correct Delco-GM stereo and 40 channel CB. At the sides of the seats, thick
Camel Tan door panels feature bright stainless trim and chrome handles for
the doors and windows. And in front of the driver, a correct gold Formula
steering wheel features a correct gold screaming chicken horn button inside
a Camel Tan rim.
