2014 TAC Forum Logos

Wow, the year is flying by  :shock: and I figured it was time for a new banner.  Cameron's amazing 79' LS1 TA is one of my all time favorite logos, which is why I gave it some extra time.  I also usually try to mix up the gens, but I came across a pic of OneOwner's redbird and I had to do it. 

Without further delay, here is the March 2014 Forum Banner!

That's a very nice example of an under-appreciated and often overlooked model.  Congrats to OneOwner for making the header  :-D  Nice car!

Great banner! This car is even nicer in person believe you-me.

If only it wasn't ruined by that ugly TATA on the right side :-P

Those pics are fantastic!  The contrasting in the shot made it very easy to the cut the background out of the shot, as well as blend the pics.

Absolutely. :-D Quite a few people would get a big surprise if they mess with this Redbird.


Congrats Nick. Well deserved. Greg's pics are great but you've gotta see this Bird in person... luckily I have. :shock: :grin: :cool: Beautiful.

The more I see these the more I like them. Awesome sleeper. I have said it once and will say it again, I have more than once thought of turning my ta down to an esprit.  It's like a clean bad boy racer kinda look.

It was time for a new logo car on TAC and as luck would have it, a recent show & tell post caught my eye.  The firebird had two things going for it.  It was the right shade of blue and the shots were very nice.  Cape T/A's 71' Lucerne Esprit is a great argument that not everything has to be a Trans Am.  Congrat's owning such a great Firebird!!

Great looking Bird, Cape T/A. You're right Mike, they all don't have too be Trans Ams. Yes, it is the right shade of blue.

Thank you all very much!  I am honored to have my pics up there, especially since I feel the car needs some improving, but it does look good in pictures!

I try my best to mix things up on the banner, but I'm going to have to stay with the early second gens one more time.  The new banner isn't just a patriotic display, but a display of the owners love for our beloved birds.  His dedication to preserving and rectification of these cars is commendable.  Without any other introduction I give you George's Red, White and Blue.

Seeing George's cars in person was great!  Getting to see them for a bit longer is awesome.  And not that I don' want to see Cape T/A's bird any longer.

Ok Craig,  I like it.   Is that your suggestion for the next banner!  Or has me memory gone and I missed one.

When I saw the pictures of this car shared in a TAC post I knew it would be the perfect holiday season TAC logo car.  Bill's amazing 1991 GTA is one of those birds you see and no matter what your favorite year model is, you can't help but appreciate the beauty of this car.  Unlike most banners I put together I just couldn't pick one to be the main image, so I made a slideshow.  Please join me in congratulating Bill on owning such a nice Trans Am!

You wouldn't be wrong Jack if it hadn't already been a logo car 2 years ago.  It's hard to deny that red beauty of Bill's!

Wow!! Truly an honor and privilege to have the GTA put up there.  Thank you so much for the consideration.  It really caught me off guard when I was asked for more pics of the car as I don't take many pics of it, so to see it in a slide show as a forum banner.............I just can't stop smiling.  Its almost like everytime I go to the garage to start it up for a drive. :cool:


Thank you so much again.  I hope it represents well. :D
