Things I noticed watching the show. The car is a clone. Had the red Pontiac emblem on the nose, the steering wheel is bent, looks like someone painted the chrome trim flat black, no stripes, no decals on the shaker.
The car they are building is listed as a 77 but isn't the car they are giving away a 78?
The next episode where they go to Burt's house is not in the car they are building. It doesn't have the YO's on it. Unless they used the car for filming before they tore it apart?
The other thing I saw them do was dump the exhaust in front of the axles. I can't believe anyone would do that on a Trans Am unless they didn't have the time to route new exhaust around the 4 link?
For 70K plus another 40K that car better have something other than a 403 and an overdrive tranny with bolt on suspension or I'm asking waaaaaay to little for my Red T/A.
I love the show and watch it every week. I mainly like the characters. The doo doo^ they coble together is mind blowing sometimes but that's the entertaining part. Like breaking in the cam on the Shelby with Oreilly's oil and some zinc additive. No timing light either.
I'd be too embarrassed to show that on TV and call myself a builder.
I'm looking forward to next week to see what motor they put in the car. If it's a rebuilt 403 I'll just be shaking my head.
