Here are some images of my 4 Year Restoration.
It is a 1995 Pontiac Trans Am Convertible, LT1
engine with 4 speed auto. All options, other than the power seats. 100,000 mile
The car was built in Quebec, Canada for export to
the U.S.A. and was sold new in Los Angeles, California. Over the next 16 years
it made its way to Arizona, Oklahoma and finally to Nova Scotia, on Canada’s
East coast. It became a summer car for a Couple from Puerto Rico who had a
vacation home in Nova Scotia.
I acquired the car and started restoring it. Aside
from a new GM transmission (dealer installed by previous owner) I had to go from
one end of the car to the other. It had not weathered the years well
cosmetically and mechanically, some short cuts had been taken. I designed the
seats myself, rewired the engine, new roof components and glass, Magna flow
exhaust, paint, stereo returned to factory so I could use the steering wheel
controls, and a host of other small issues we tackled.
I really enjoyed the process and I am very pleased
with the success in the restoration.
