trying to track down my highschool car!
Hi all, I live in Huntsville, Alabama and am trying to track down my car from high school. It was a 74 TransAm 400 4speed white with black interior. I sold the car in 1983 to a guy that lived in Gadsden. The car was unique in that it had a fender flare kit which I thought was factory by Pontiac? Anyone in Alabama seen a car like this, please email me, thanks!

Im not sure but you might try contacting the Pontiac Historical Society, if you have some of the original docs/vin numbers, lic plate id, etc.

Pontiac never put flare kits on vehicles to the best of my knowledge! That was a popular thing to do back in the late 70's and early 80's by custom shops all over the US. If you have a photo of the license plate or vin number you could try asking "nicely" at your local dmv to run the numbers in their system. Chances are they will not but its worth a try.

Keep looking. A friend found his car after 25 years. You can also run an ad in the newspaper in surrounding states.
DMV won't help because of the privacy laws that are now in effect. Get some phone books from where ever the person livied and try calling. You have to dig, and dig. As our club is 50 years old we in 1970 deceide to mark our csr's someware on the frame in case someone decided to look as your looking and it paid off for Joe. He had welded his wifes name on the frame and he found it at the Carlisle Ford show. Good Luck
