The August 2010 issueís

I want to let you know about another Trans Am that I just added to my
collection. I have already told you about my white 1988 GTA, my white 20th
Anniversary turbo pace car and my black Ď96 Trans Am.
Now I have a Ď94 25th Anniversary Trans Am. Itís number 3 off
the assembly line for the total production of the anniversary run. Now for the
really neat part - itís also 1 of 2 1994 NASCAR pace cars. One is in Michigan at

garages and on the road!
