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
1979 Pontiac Trans Am Review 7-22-2008
TestDriveMyRide.com is an idea for car reviews of real cars by real people.
This test video is a review of my 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. This
restored vehicle features a 300 horsepower Chevy 350 V8,
700r4 overdrive transmission, 3.42 rear gears, flowmaster Exhaust, and subframe connectors. Original
black on black t-top vehicle with fresh paint and interior. The original
Oldsmobile 403 only had 180 horsepower, but these cars
can return to the muscle car era with only a few tweaks/mods.
