ARTICLES AND STORIES

'79 Trans Am and '98 Firebird of Kelly Powell
this is an excerpt from the articles appearing in the EAGLE

Google

I am an avid Firebird and Trans Am lover! I have had around ten Trans Ams and Firebirds throughout my life. My pick is the ‘79 Trans Am but I love them all!

When I was around 20 years of age, I drove my first Trans Am. The rest is history! I was hooked and had to have that car which was exactly like the blue ‘79 featured in a past issue of the Eagle. I begged my friend and talked him into selling the ‘79 to me. After that, I wanted nothing to do with any other car, other than a sports car and mainly a Trans Am.

I now have a ‘79 Trans Am which I purchased in December 2006. I never thought I would ever get the chance to own one again. The way I got the car is bitter-sweet in that my parents passed away leaving the family home to me. Since I could not keep the home because of taxes and repairs needed on the house, I sold the property. At the time I made the sale, I was cruising through New Boston, Ohio on my way to Wal-Mart and in passing Cooper’s Car and Truck Accessories, I spotted the ‘79 Trans Am I now own.

I had to have that car! As you can see, it is beautiful! I have a son who is 16 years old and I have a feeling this car will be his graduation present. That way, he will have a gift from his grandparents and mother and something to treasure for the rest of his life. But until then, it will continue to be my dream car. I want to restore it in the near future and I hopefully I will be able to. Having suffered from cancer and back surgery and having really been through a really rough time in my life. Purchasing this car has been a god-send to me. It really cheered me up and brought back new hope in my life!

I also have a ‘98 Firebird which I will be hanging onto and restoring in the future. I love my ‘98 Firebird but it does not compare to my ‘79 Trans Am. Nothing ever will.
