My New 86 T/A

Hey thought I would introduce my self since I just picked up this on the weekend. 1986 T/A - 305 LG4 - Manual - WS6 - Rear Disc - Overhead Console. It needs lots of love but the price was right and had the options I wanted (t-top,manual,WS6). Engine Runs strong and that's about it. Shell is pretty good too. The electrical on the other hand not so good. Someone has made a mess of it during its life its going to take me some time to figure out. The interior as well is rough someone got carried away with a rivet gun on the door panels and made a mess of them. (I'll post more pics in a few weeks when I get back from work).

The plan for the car once its been gone over from top to bottom (which i haven't had time to do yet brought it home put it in the garage left for work the next day) its most likely going to come completely apart and restored and upgraded in a pro touring style. See last picture from Forza on the X-Box for my inspiration for this car. Its going to be a father/son project even though hes only 3 he's very mechanical inclined toddler.

Bit on my Background This is the 3rd Firebird/Transam I've owned. My very first car was an 84 V6 5spd, the second an 86 T/A 5spd it was a street/strip car ran very low 11's in the 1/4 mile however in the end It looked good but the body was rotten and i ended up parting it out. Owned a mix of others cars from Civics, Neons all done up and a 05 Mustang GT looked stock but was far from it. I also wrench on and do data acquisition for Formula race cars.

As a new member myself, I think you’ll find this forum as the third gen family you never knew you had.
