A Member's Ride by Mac McLean
this is an excerpt from the articles appearing in the EAGLE

Hi my name is Mac McLean. I have been a member for almost 2 years now. I am of course a Firebird fanatic, the 91 and 92 TAs preferably. They just look right to me. I guess you either love or hate third gens, because of the mixed coverage, if any, they get. To say the least, I will never get rid of mine.

I was originally looking for a 92 GTA, misinformed I drove to Atlanta (from Pensacola, Florida) to look at one. After riding to the middle of nowhere feeling extremely lost and increasingly worried of my unfamiliar surroundings I found his house. It wasn't a GTA. However, it was a black 92 Trans Am with black 16-8 rims, a 5.7 engine, only 75K miles, WS-6 package, posi 3.23 rear, and it was clean. I took it for a test drive only to fall head over heals for it. When I stomped the gas, I broke both tires loose (I previously had an 87 Formula with an LSD) and took off with the scenery becoming increasingly blurry.

After that, I turned around, went https://fochal.com/forms/fborder.htm to the house, and bought it on the scene. I hid my enthusiasm and actually got him to knock $1500 off the price. Me and my ride over stayed the night, we were going to leave the next day. I rarely slept for me frequent trips to the window to see if she was still there as it wasnt a 5 star hotel to say the least. I had an uneventful ride https://fochal.com/forms/fborder.htm on the interstate as well as a quick one (haha) only managing to burn a little over a tank.

I had many good times while it was still stock, and even managed to annihilate my old car (sold to a friend) which now had a 350 with a Holley 600, and exhaust.

Over the past couple of years I have done some mods to my car. These include: a cut and buffed paint job w/ two toned painted on stripes, a custom built glass hood w/ cowl induction, an APR adjustable aluminum wing w/ custom side plates, custom Lexan tear drop light covers, custom ported and polished plennum and runners, MSD 6a ignition, adjustable fuel pressure reg, K n N con the throttle body (its speed density), exhaust work w/ a Flowmaster and 3 in chrome tips, a built 700r4 w/ 2500 stall, synthetic oil, 98 model seats, a shift light tach, and several other small mods appearance and otherwise. I wont bother you with what I am going to do (ie: nos, GM 385 forced induction, etc.), because who cares unless you already have it. I hope you like the pictures and info.
