Firebird GTA

(This one has inherited the the name "K.I.T.T".)

Here's a very old project!

My 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans AM GTA (The first year of the GTA package) was purchased in January of 1994. A 7 year young car with a lot of potential. Then my marriage soon followed and this was one of many projects that got "parked".

Welcome to 2007! I opened the garage to retrieve a 20 year old moldy vehicle with a limited resource of parts available. Many of the components I originally desired to upgrade have long been discontinued :-(

Not to fear! Thanks to eBay, I'm finding a number of the items I wanted. Following the dissolution of my marriage, my cash flow has been positive and this is one of the many projects I hope to finally complete! Yahoo!
