Value of my 1982 Pontiac Tans Am?
« on: May 14, 2007, 01:38:08 AM »
I am the original owner of a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am.  I bought it off the lot.  It is completely stock.  Even has the original recalled bowling ball hubcaps (you don't see them with these any longer because they had a tendancy to fall off!).  I've maintained it and kept the records.  It has been garaged.  I didn't drive it often - it has only about 45,000 miles on it.  It would be considered in very good or excellant condition.  It has the 305 4 bbl engine with electric windows, mirrors, locks, etc.  I is hard for me to believe this, but I am considering selling it.  Can anyone give me an idea/range of its value?  Thanks.

I am a NFTAC, Member and I was at one time an auto mechanic working for a local GM dealer here in my home town back in the mid-to late '80's now  I currently enjoy working on my own Pontiac's especially on my '85 T/A // making maintenance repairs, repairs, modifications and performance modifications I also enjoy meeting and /or talking to other Firebird & T/A owners an get into technical debates;hopefully just as long as the debate's doesn't go into a to heated argument.
