Hi.  I'm John Rossetti and I live in DePere, WI.  My son Andrew and I just bought a $2,500.00 1979 T/A that we plan to restore.   We're not new to Pontiacs or Firebirds, but we've not worked on a second gen before.  I've had a 1969 Firebird coupe for 10 years and my father and I worked on GTO's in the 80's.  Andrew and I will be looking for advice as we get this Trans Am into shape.

Hi John

        I also have a 79 TA I paid $2000 for. I currently have rebuilt the front suspension, steering and brakes. I have the front clip off and engine and transmission out at this time. Now that the weather is starting to get warmer I hopefully will get it put back together. You can see pictures of it on firebirdfury.com. Firebirdfury is thunderchickens web site.

Welcome to the club! That is a great find! She looks almost identical to my 79 even though you got yours for half the price. Are those t-tops? If you paid half what I paid for mine and you got t-tops, I think I am going to cry. :P How original is she? What engine? I think that if you look up the paint code, you will find that you have a special car. In 1979 , solar gold was available only to Pontiac and even then only to Firebirds.
