I sat in a new '77 Trans Am in the showroom of Hallet Pontiac in Miami, Florida in December 1976; I was eleven years old and said "One day...."

The prices of really nice 2nd gen Trans Am's have gone into the stratosphere so owning a really nice one was probably not in the cards.

Doing this mod gave me the "shaker hood experience" I've always wanted, but in a package that's light years ahead of the old Trans Am's.

Looks good . How about a 3/4 shot from about 15ft back so we can see the whole car and how it really looks.

Wow!!! That looks super badass. Very nice work. You shouldbe proud of that one.

That looks better than those trans am conversions. You kept the Camaro look, but paying homage to the trans am.

That is impressive, it does look like GM could have offered it as an option. You should be proud!

Again, I want to thank everyone's input and response to this. I must stress though that while it was my vision, I could not have executed that vision without J&J Rod & Custom in Anna, Texas. Thanks to Jesse and the crew!
