I did know that a running car is NOT a parts car. That is a description I want to avoid. But I have to co-ordinate the next steps with the owner who isn't in town at the moment. I have a few photos because a friend said that it 's "barn find" status should be documented. In order to pull it outside and inspect it more fully I will wait for her, I guess. I did tell her that I would start the process, which I guess is what I'm doing.
BTW, my own car is a 1968 LeMans coupe. It has 72k miles on it. Unfortunately, it has a 350c.i. motor. I call it a poor man's GTO because it does have a 4-speed and a 4:11 posi rear end. When it was sold to my mother-in-law, (original owner) Pontiac called the limited slip "Safety Trac" or something like that. So, she bought. Car is in great condition. And not for sale.
Anybody else with an idea about the Trans Am, jump right in.
