I wasn't expecting this guy to drive up as I was shooting other cars at Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, but I'm glad he did, and I'm glad he left the engine on long enough to capture that 303 Exhaust note.
This is the original Trans Am, before the second generation went all flaps and vents and giant spoilers and shaker hoods and screaming chickens and "Smokey and the Bandit".
White with blue stripes and blue interior. Pure and simple.
You can see more pictures of it on my Flickr page:
1969 Trans Am 1 owner barn find
I recently purchased this 1 owner 1969 Trans Am. It was parked in 1982 when
the owner was transferred out of state. It is a Ram Air III 4 speed car.
Other than some surface rust it really has no real rust to speak of.
UPDATE: The car has been sold and now lives with its new owner in the

I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1969 Pontiac Firebird.
It's powered by the 400 V8 4 bbl, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It
really looks slick inside and out. It's equipped with the dual hood
scoops, hood mounted tach, rally wheels, and very nice blue metallic paint.
The interior has been completely restored and looks nearly new. These are
excellent driving and handling cars. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

Brian's Pro Street 1969 Firebird
A quick walk around plus a few other clips about a 1969 Pontiac Firebird
brought up to Canada a few years back. The car is from Louisiana, built to
its present state by the owner down in that state. It takes a lot of
concentration and constant attention to drive this car as it is quite
powerful, and the tires are not conductive to the most straight of
traction. The rear tires,especially, being wide and very soft in rubber
texture, and having very 'wrinkly' sidewalls, can make for a vehicle which
feels very twitchy on the road. So much to the fact hitting the
accelerator at the wrong time could very easily put the car sideways. Even
when you are going in a straight line. Driving with prudence is so
important. The paint was anything but shiny as you see in the clip when
the car was first brought home. It needed a lot of wet sanding and
polishing to come out looking as it does now. The engine is a very much
modified Pontiac 400- cubic inch V-8 hooked up to a fully manual turbo 350 with a 'reverse type' valve body. This
means there is no automatic shifting feature in the unit. and '1' is right
after neutral, then '2nd ' is the next notch back, and finally '3rd'. This
is done for drag racing purposes to ensure you do not run the chance of
grabbing neutral in a race. Stock automatics run the shift lever the
opposite way after neutral. This Pro-Street designed car has all the nice
stuff in it including a roll cage ( the side bars beside the passenger and
driver are removed for street driving), a fuel tank in the trunk, and
4-wheel disc brakes. The rear axle assembly is some reinforced and built-
up unit with a cast aluminum cover sporting a center section girdle to help
keep the rear end in one piece.
