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 Coopers 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
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.
