Their absence was disappointing. Probably a business decision - Or they were taking a break from working on sbindley's car .

I only saw one '70-'74 TA. Maybe I was looking in all the wrong places.

Me too....the white one with the blue bird ?

The guy with the Black S.E. Trans Am was nice......not sure who he was talking too when we walked up, but he had restored that Trans Am plus the white one.....and I'm thinking they were both from Florida....made me wonder if he was in with Trans Am Specialties....or Trans Am Depot.....I know there are several Trans Am places down there.

I didn't think to ask him until we were gone.

I reckon we must have missed you....we only had time to visit for a couple of hours Saturday morning (a little time at the Gathering is better than no time...lol)

Nice!

Me personally I'd tint my windows 5% immediately for privacy. And do the bird on the hood.

The T-top would be sexy.

They hope to start cutting t-tops next week after a full underbody bracing system goes in to tighten things up and reduce body flex with top off - far more rigid than a stock vert.

Okay, finally some news. They have installed the new underbody bracing system and have stripped out the interior of the car. Windows pulled out Monday and rest of prep done then also. T-top cutting should begin Tuesday. I'll post photos of progress.

T-top cutting begins tomorrow. As seen from photos, even prep is serious stuff.

Of course, if one does not want to go through that, they can get in on the bidding for this one:

Okay, shaking things up under that shaker hood. Bagging the cam, etc., and going with a twin turbo setup from Cordes Performance and AGP Turbo in Tempe. More power, better manners, etc. Stay tuned.

I have seen 3 so far, 2 at a car show in Jax, 1 near Kingsland GA .

I talked to a rep at the car show & at that time they could do the Trans formation(no pun intended) at a dealership in the Jax area.

Gorgeous! You should have the bird airbrushed (lightly) with gold flake & silver flake - almost transparent with the flake giving the "ghost bird" you mentioned before.

I had a buyer offer me a nice premium for my car. I would have to get back in line and not get a delivery until Jan or Feb. I passed. I want this car now.
