Hello to all. I've owned Pontiac's my whole life. This will be my last build. I've had 65 gto 65 Catalina 68 gto 70 442. 71 Ventura 73 Ventura. I now have 2 79 trans am.   One is a 403 model the other is a 400 4speed car.  I'm in the process of turning the 400 4speed into a restomode. I have a 73 455 going in it with a tremic 6 speed I'm replacing the rear suspension with a 2016 Camaro rear independent rear suspension  the front suspension will be converted to coilovers. I will be running 315 30 20s all four corners.  The 455 will be completely rebuild eagle crank rods forged pistons. All roller top end due to the rpm I want out of it. This will be my last build. Pics will be on the way.

Welcome to TAC, sounds like an ambitious project. My brother had a 74 Ventura. I was at a car auction a few years ago and there was a Nova that was actually a Ventura that had been cloned. Most were shaking their heads why someone would take a Ventura, that is hardly ever seen and convert to a Nova, which there are a million.
Finished!

Welcome! I have pondered putting a Corvette independent rear ou nto one of my Firebirds. More for the wow factor as I just plan to daily drive them again. But I have enough trouble just finishing it with the mods I have done already.  Would love to see some pictures!
79 Trans am 301 (work in progress) LS swap n progress
79 Formula 301 (Work in progress)
67 RS Camaro (Work in progress)
See the recurring theme???

Names, Luke. If I hear anyone telling me they're my father....
