1981 Turbo Trans Am Pace Car of Justin Carr from Bloomington, Illinois

Here are some pictures of my 1981 Turbo Trans Am Pace Car. This is 1 of 2000 examples to commemorate the 1981 Daytona 500.

These cars were loaded up with all options from the factory including the Recaro interior. This car is an unrestored survivor with just under 50,000 miles. I purchased the car from the second owner in 2008. He had a small car collection and this car had been in his building since the late 80ís. During this time the car only saw about 300 miles. The car was originally delivered to Earl Dunn Pontiac in Madison, Tennessee with a sticker price of over $14,000.

Since taking possession of the car I have only done what is necessary to make the car safe and roadworthy. This includes a rebuild of the original turbocharger, carburetor, and radiator. Under the hood I replaced any questionable belts and hoses with new stock appearing rubber. The car was not wearing itís original set of tires so a fresh set of correct size BFG Radial T/Aís were fitted.

The car retains its original exhaust with dual resonators and twin exhaust tips.

The car has been to Trans Am Nationals the past 4 years and The Ames Tri Power Nationals in 2014. This past summer was my first time to the Indian Uprising in St Charles, Illinois.

The Turbo cars are a unique part of the firebird history and I feel they are the best handling of the second generation cars along with the great styling of the late 70ís and early 80ís f-bodyís.
