Its a brand new year and time for a another great Firebird.  This one is owned by Jeff B. (aka...Dreamn2) and it is near and dear to my heart, which is why I selected it to start off the new year.  Yes I know this is two in a row for silver round headlight TA's, but it is a 1976 Trans Am that received many stage 1 & 2 Fire Am parts making it one of few to be built back in the day.  Here is the intro after it came home.  Happy New year to everyone and help me congratulate Jeff on his fantastic Firebird!

No disrespect here I really like the car but what were they thinking of when they came up with that decal? It is a bit too Austin Powers for my taste (now that I can see one up close)

Another congratulations to Jeff.

I'm a few days late, but here is February's forum logo.

This one is owned by John M. (aka...Milly) and it serves John on a daily basis.  As you can tell by the picture John also owns an 81' Trans Am, but that is a logo for another month. The early 4th gens don't get as much love as the 98-02 models, but they have their rightful place in firebird history.  I especially like the teal color and not because my 95 sonoma wears the same hue.  Congrats John and thanks for all that you do on TAC!

In honor of the upcoming St. Patty's day I thought it was pertinent to locate a firebird in a nice shade of green.  I didn't have to look far, but if you want to see it in person....you'll have to go around the world to a little patch of dirt called Australia.  Leigh is a long standing member of TAC and one of our moderators.  He has owned many great firebirds, but I will say that his meticulous rebuild of this firebird into a formula 455 clone was outstanding.  You can find Leigh's restoration post here http://transamcountry.com/community/index.php?topic=28510.0 and some pictures of the finished project here.  http://transamcountry.com/community/index.php?topic=55102.0

Congrats Leigh and thanks for being such a great community member!

With April fools day out of the way it is time to introduce the next banner bird.  It is our own Xtreme TA and his 76' is like no other.  It started life as a 76' TA, but has evolved into something....Extreme.  The tilt front end, full body spoiler, targa top, converted back glass and aero rear spoiler will blow your mind, then you see the engine and see the car itself is blown.  Right now it is being upgraded with an interior that matches the exterior quality in this topic http://transamcountry.com/community/index.php?topic=2127.msg21909#msg21909

Whew, what a relief, you got me!  This is my first April on TAC and when I saw the first April banner I thought, 'S.O.B., hacked by Anonymous with a Mustang banner!!!  Really, a 14-year-old basement dwelling punk has nothing better to do than mess with our Firebirds!!!!'   :lol:

This car was supposed to be May, June will do.  We were introduced to this 86 TA in Feb and it really stood out to me.  The crisp color and sleek looks made me do a doubletake.  It also doesn't hurt to have a great photographer for a Dad.  Without further delay I would like to introduce's Gudfinnur's Son's stunning 86 TA.  Hopefully I will learn this young man's name soon.  Here is the post when this car was first introduced.  http://transamcountry.com/community/index.php?topic=56337
