Up for sale is my restored and upgraded 1978 TransAm with a W72 performance option. This is the real deal Pontiac 400 motor. Besides being a beautifully restored TransAm. over  the last 4 years I did well over $10k in upgrades to the suspension. A/C. cooling system. transmission. exhaust. etc. . to get it to look and drive right.
See the car in action on the band Surrender the Fall's music video on MTV:

It has a 2004R overdrive transmission for nice comfortable cruising. vintage custom Recaro "fishnet" seats for comfort. complete Pro Touring F-body springs. shocks. sway bars and body mounts for good handling. custom mandrel bent exhaust with dual Flowmasters. upgraded modern A/C compressor and condenser. four electric fans with two Flex-a-lite controllers. 100 amp alternator. full aggressive Year One body flares. 17" Year One wheels. nbsp;awesome iPod compatible stereo. nbsp;and much more! Besides the upgrades. many maintenance parts have recently been replaced.
My loss is your gain. don't try this at home unless you have a lot of $'s and time to spend! A stack of receipts will be included with the sale.  The subtle but expensive details like the fishnet seats. 17" wheels. lower profile tires. wider body flares. beautiful sounding dual Flowmasters and tight suspension really make the car stand out.  This car has all the looks and sounds that get attention EVERYWHERE!
