Started with a 37,000 mile rust free survivor in excellent condition. I know, I sold it to him. He transformed it one of the hottest Trans Ams I've seen. Claimed over $90,000 invested, includes a pile of paper work. Less then 200 miles since finished.

They even stripped the undercoat from the rear wheel wells. Has an incredible black paint job that is literally like a mirror, you could shave in it's reflection. The jambs are just as slick. Sill plates are new and shiny. New weatherstrips. All the body gaps line up real nice. New decals, the siver-red look hot. Staggered size polished aluminum wheels- 17x8 in front, 18x9.5s in back.

This car is exciting! Everybody that sees it, loves it. The builder did a great job making it look and perform incredible. I have bought and sold many cars with him, he loves building them. Once he is done he is ready to do the next one. Whoever buys his car benefits from all his time and money he invests. This is a perfect example!



I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
