Trans Am Project Update - 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Third Gen
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV Many of you have been asking for an update on our Trans Am project, so we thought we better get one done. We weren't really prepared to do it, so the car isn't as clean as it should be. We have a lot of changes planned for the Trans Am and we'll do our best to keep you posted about the progress. Thought I'd go ahead and throw in a flyby and some burnout footage, just to make it a little more interesting. Thanks for watching!
