My name is Chuck, I'm from Southern New Hampshire and am the proud owner of a 1978 Trans AM. I've been a lifelong fan of the Pontiac brand and have previously owned two Firebirds, two Grand Prix and a Bonneville. The Trans Am, specifically a 1977 or 1978, has always been my dream car and I was fortunate enough to find a three owner "California car" a few years ago. Although the motor wasn't original, the paint was and body was rust and filer free, after 40 years of dreaming of owning one , I jumped on the opportunity. I began looking at having the car restored by a few companies, when I was contacted by the Discovery Channel about a show they were going to make with one of the restoration companies I was talking with, they were interested in documenting the restoration, I was intrigued. After a week of negotiating the restoration price and making sure the car was going to be built to my specifications (resto-mod), I shipped the car to Florida. The car was built and featured on the Discovery Channel show Trans Am (episodes 1 and 2). My Trans Am was also displayed at the 2018 SEMA show. Thanks for having me in the group.
