Default uh oh... i bought another Trans Am...

i was on my way home from the hospital this morning and saw a 2cnd gen setting in some guys drive way with a 4 sale sign. stopped, talked to him, poked around on it and im getting the paper work tomorrow and picking it up this weekend. its an 80, brownish... yellowish... ugly, its just ugly. giant chicken on the hood too, bodys straight though. my dad gave the go ahead, nice father daughter bonding time runs, several oil leaks, brakes are shot, as long as it moves its own *** onto a trailer, it can puke when it gets home. od reads 96k, and he says its numbers matching but who knows, doesnt really matter to me, shes not a keeper, but for $300 its kinda hard to say no. ill post pics tomorrow.


HERE SHE IS!!!











notice the 4 sale sign? i dunno how i saw that, but i did

$300 for an 80!! Good find considering those have had a huge amount of upside the last few years. Congrats.

You're one of a kind....it's usually the other way around. That's a great find. The 2nd Gen cars have really come into their own in the past few years.
