Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was
pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home
until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for
all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a
mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was
totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust
bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT
THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER
PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY
DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON
HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU
WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS
1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am runs NMRA/NMCA Hotchkis Autocross
Here is my car at the first ever NMRA/NMCA autocross put on by Hotchkis.
In this video, I run a 37.9, but hit a cone. A moment after hitting said
cone, I bump heads with my passenger. (0:42)
My cousin was nice enough to give up one of his autocross runs so he would
have time to film this. Please don't complain about camera shaking and

2010 Run to the Coast - 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Autocross
Here my Trans Am runs the autocross at RTTC 2010. This felt like my
quickest run, but as luck would have it, there was some error with the
timing so the run did not count. Note that the car shifts out of first
gear; the transmission decided it no longer wanted to use 1st gear past
2500 rpm that day, which greatly hindered acceleration.
