This Rare Trans Am Is The Muscle Car's Greatest Hits Album With just 4000 miles on the odometer, this has to be one of the 'newest' 10th-Anniversary Edition Trans Ams available Although Pontiac's Trans Am may not be the rarest of American tarmac warriors, they certainly stand for something inspiring.

On the outside, this Pontiac seems to be in great shape, and the custom paint job looks like it was definitely performed in a thorough manner. Going through the photos, you could hardly ever tell that this Firebird was once red, thanks to areas such as the trunk and door jams being painted.

The interior of this Firebird features the factory bucket seats, though someone reupholstered them in a purple microfiber fabric to match the exterior. Other highlights of the interior are a Pioneer stereo system, power steering, power windows, and aluminum trim.

This Pontiac left the factory with a 400 cu.-in. V8 engine, but another 400 cu.-in. mill with a Comp Cam has since replaced it, so it’s hard to determine if the 61,030 miles listed in the advertisement are the miles on the engine or just the chassis. In any case, the V8 engine pairs to an automatic transmission to drive the rear wheels in this example. Lastly, there’s polished American Racing wheels and power brakes at all four corners, while a posi rear end with 3.42 gearing is out back.

Garage Kept Motors is asking $29,900 for this Trans Am. Do you think that’s a fair price, or would you rather have a more original example?

Reader’s Ride: 1974 Trans Am.
Having never forgotten about that Firebird, I had a dream of finding a 1970s Firebird Trans Am and restoring it. I found it after two years of searching. A body-off restoration had been started in 1997 by the previous owner. All of the bodywork had been completed, including being painted in its original color, Cameo White. A new Baer four-wheel disc-brake system, a full Hotchkis suspension system, a rebuilt steering system, and a new TA rearend had all been installed on the car. Some of the interior had been refurbished, and the 455 motor and transmission had been installed.
