I’m currently working on a Restoration Profile about a 1972 Pontiac Trans Am 455 four-speed that rightfully grabbed a trophy at our Musclepalooza XII show in Englishtown last month.
The car is beautifully restored because the owner spent so much time sweating the small stuff and carefully preserving original pieces and finishes. The story is slated for the December issue of HMM but if you want a leg up, head over to PerformanceYears.com and look up the post “Just Pressure Washed the Bottom of my 72 T/A: New Detail Photos”
Here you can see much of the work that the owner put into the car.
Alternatively you can head over to Yenko.net and look up the post “72 T/A: New Project”
Here, however, you will have to log in to see the photos.
What’s amazing to me is the amount of traffic these two pieces have generated. The posts on the Performance Years forum has 68,630 views to date, while the post on Yenko.net has been viewed 124,494 times.
Either enthusiasts are hungry for Trans Am info (on a Yenko site?) or they just like a good honest grassroots restoration series. To read our take on it, check out the December 2010 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines that we’re putting together as you read this.
