  1. My 2000 Trans-am that was red back in April. The hood clear coat was going bad. Decided to go Dark Mulbery which is a GM color and I think Pontiac used it in the mid 90's. I had my '89 Firebird done this color back in 2001.
  2. I'd like to have one, if there is one going spare.
  3. TransAmDan's 2000 Pontiac Trans-AM WS6 in the UK.
  4. My 2000 Pontiac Trans-Am WS6, owned it since September 2002, brought it on eBay from Pensacola, Florida, and shipped it to the UK. Certainly turns heads, done loads of miles in it and every one of them miles brings a smile to my face. The image was generated by having a camera on a tri-pod, and taking many photos, adding in light with a torch, and then photo-shopping the images together.
  5. My 2000 Trans-Am at a local car show in Worthing on the south coast of England.
  6. There are many car shows in the UK, come focus on Classic or american cars. A large local show to use has over 1000 vehicles there, the event was called 'Wheels day 2013' I took a few photos, as you can see there are many american cars there. Wheels Day 2013 Photo Gallery:- http://www.solent-renegades.co.uk/members/transamdan-albums-wheels-day-2013-photos.html Really nice late 60's Camaro there. and this very nice step side Ford F100, looks like its just come out of a show room. and of course, Pontiac's There is a large show on the east cost around Augu
  7. My '89 Firebird was made in Germany according to the plate under the hood. It was still left hand drive. I've not seen a right hand drive F-Body yet, but if they are anywhere they would be in Australia. I once had an Opel Manta, Dont know if you have heard of them in the States. I was paying 1200 GBP (around $1800) per year for car insurance on it. Then I brought the 3rd Gen Firebird and my insurance dropped to £700 per year. I asked why is the insurance so cheap, the company said because it is left hand drive and manual, its less likely to be stolen/taken for a joy ride (as most cars here
  8. I did over rev the engine a while back when I missed a gear, which may have caused the lifter failure. Also I missed the last oil change. so either way its my own fault. I havn't put the same lifters back in. i have changed all 16 to a slightly different design also made by CompCams, but better for high-revving. The one at the top is the new one. The surclip looks a bit more substantial. I'm keeping a listen out for engine noised every time I drive it now, and not revved over 3000rpm yet. Its been good fun working on the car, although a little scary doing it on my own as I am mor
  9. Thanks for all the welcome messages. Its great to be on here. I am one of the founder members for the Solent Renegades car club http://www.solent-renegades.co.uk, started in April 1999. I had a 3rd Gen Firebird 2.8L back then. The reason i got into american cars it that i just liked the looks of the 3rd Gen, looked so aero dynamic. Once i purchased, i saw how many heads the car would turn. Some members in the car club had some friendly banter teasing me about it being a V6, so I got my current Trans-Am, and now none of them can keep up with me . lol We have around 80 members, not all of them
  10. Interesting stuff. Looking at the early car's differential, things haven't changed too much since then.
  11. Well I have a new ticking noise from under the hood. I was hoping it was an exhaust leak but it wasn't. I know the valve train on a cammed LS1 is louder than usual, I've done 40k miles in it but this was a new sound. Took the rocker cover off. All valve springs look good and intact. no metal bits in there, so probably not metal hitting metal in this head. Rocker cover looks good, nothing been hitting it. Rockers look tight. Thought I'd start the car up, but couldn't connect the coil pack on this side as it would be resting on the rocker. I've started the car on 4 cylinders. Here is a vide
  12. Hi, I'm from Waterlooville, which is near Portsmouth in Hampshire UK. I just thought I'd say hi in here as its my first post. I purchased my 2000 Trans-Am in 2002 on eBay, it was in Pensacola, Florida, shipped it to Southampton, UK. Its been a daily driver until beginning of 2012, where i had to get a smaller car to save some fuel as buying a new house. Car still going well. I came to this website as it popped up on Facebook, perhaps i clicked on Like on someone elses news feed at some point. So Facebook is certainly a great tool to spread the word. I saw the post "Have a build, projec
