I found the original barely used keys to my 1977 Trans Am (Update, Die-Trying guess it close-enough-to-right, they were between the quarter panel outer skin and the trunk pan/frame rail. Where nothing should ever fall, but GM is STUPID and left it open and barely accessible except to the smallest of bendy-grabbing…
So I started disassembly of my heads. It’s a mixed bag.
and the TA held its own against the Caymans and Boxsters.
Drove another 1.5 hours to get the part I went to swap meet for.
Gotta love making silk out of a sow’s ear... or whatever that idiom is supposed to mean...
An excellent movie. Best use of infrasound I’ve seen in any movie I’ve watched. Genuinely frightening too - I rarely get goosebumps from a horror movie but this one did its job. Jump scares were well done and Pennywise was truly disturbing.
That one was really nice. Too bad it went for so much and didn’t meet reserve
1) Trans-Am has an AWESOME YouTube channel.
My poor fingers
So while you dorks are at work, I am “enjoying” myself.
Just sell the reliable daily and buy a maybe not reliable non smog vehicle? You don’t like modern luxuries right? Damn, if only it had T-Tops
Engine (should be) all ready to come out. had a bit of a panic attack as the hoist has just enough room after I misread/miscalculated the combined weight of the engine/tranny. I can use the half ton position so all should be good.
So work has been going (unsurprisingly) slow going. my meticulous nature, the weather, a lack of help, and life have conspired to an end result of not moving very fast. However, it is getting done.
I will be working on pulling the engine/tranny out this week, weather provided (it’s quite overcast right now). Going to pick up an engine hoist from a friend this evening.
Looks like this is really happening.
On this day in 2009, General Motors announced it would discontinue the 83 year-old brand. No more iconic muscle cars like the Trans Am or GTO. No more quirky little cars like the Fiero or the Solstice. But at least we got the sweet relief in knowing that Pontiac’s demise meant we didn’t have worry about the Aztek…
What do I need to put this back to stock, i.e. put a stock Trans Am wheel back on it?
Finally got around to making a clock out of an old Pontiac hubcap like the ones that were originally on my aunt’s 1977 Firebird Esprit that I bought when I was 16, but never had the hubcaps on it. They were stored in the rafters of my grandparent’s garage and probably got thrown out before I knew to care. I saw them…
