One of my past Cars!

Post by camaroguy1998 »

My daughter suggested that we all meet at one of the local car shows, turned out to be a great idea! :)
JJ's is a Local eatery that holds a monthly car show, been there many times! (2nd Saturday of the month)
Today turned out great since one of my past Chevelles(1970) was there!
Still looking Great! The guy who bought it, gave it to his wife for a Christmas Gift in 2003!
Yeah, 19yrs ago! :shock:
This is one that I miss!

BTW.... If she ever decides to sell it, I will be her 1st call! :)

WoW...1978 Trans Am!!!! :)
Over the last 40yrs I've had 3 T/A's , 2 of them were 1978s!
One metallic Blue T/A 6.6, 4spd, the other was Gold, both T-Tops!
The 1st car I bought with a loan was a 1975 Silver Trans Am!
I'll have to go through my pics, I think I have a pic of the "75.

This pic is not my car but, the car is the same as mine except the wheels!
Mine had the factory honeycomb wheels.
IMHO a Pretty Car!

Yeah, I regret selling a few of the cars I've had over the years.
Trans Am's were not really fast but, made great cruisers!

What a beautiful car. The guy you sold it to, kept it in great condition. Would be nice for you to get that back in the future [-o<

Thanks for the comments!
DJ, you don't drive? :?
I only know 2 people who do not drive, one is prone to seizures :( and the other lives in England!
The woman who lives in England said she never seen a need to drive, so she never learned! :shock:

Personally for me, driving is a Pleasure or is it a Competition! :) Both! :)
Here's that pic of my '75 Trans Am!
Sorry about the quality of the pic!
This is a pic of a pic of a pic! Original taken in 1981 right after I bought it!
