1989 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA
Posted by Mr Mike on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 8:10 PM

This is my '89 Firebird Trans Am GTA rebuilt from a falling apart and dirty mess.  Painted with Testors Classic White Lacquer with a Model Master Dark Tan interior, rebuilt center console for an automatic transmission, Buick Turbo V6 cleaned, repainted and rewired.

I really like it! Great job on the transplant!

I've always loved the Trans Am. I had a '78 and a '83 in 1:1 scale. 

Again, great job!

Thank you guys!  This was an enjoyable and a far more accurate build!

Nice!  Love the powerplant swap.  And those wheels are really nice.  Aftermarket or did they come with the kit?

Thanks,

John

Thanks John!  But, there is no powerplant swap here.  This is how the kit came, Buick Turbo V6 and auto trans.  The car was originally built as a Pace Car for the Indy 500.
