GoodGuys car show at the Puyallup
« on: July 30, 2018, 10:33:30 AM »
JoeDirt won 2 Awards “Modern Muscle” and “Excellence Award”. Out of more than 3,000 beautiful cars.
Where are all the Firebirds/TransAms Around here? Saw maybe 4. There must have been 500 Camaros and that many Chevelles too, many built  as well as my TransAm but no awards. My guess is that people get fatigued with how many there are.

I saw your car. Congrats on such a beautiful car.  I saw about Four birds in the show on Friday.  One beautiful, white 73 455.  I tried to get some of the guys from the Western Washington Firebirds to get together for the show.  Maybe next year I’ll have some better luck getting a few more to participate now that they opened up later year cars.

The 73 455 was there all 3 days but everytime I went by the owner wasn’t around, I wanted to chat with him. It was a super sweet ride.

It was a lady that was driving it.   I saw her cruising it around.

Congrats on the wins. Same thing in my area, I am usually the only trans am that shows up for local shows, there is a guy with a 79 firebird and a few first gen firebirds. And yes, tons of camaros. Thats fine with me though.

I wonder how many of the first gen Camaros were originally firebirds? There was a really nice First gen Camaro parked right next to my TransAm and hardly got a look, while there were crowds around the TransAm.

I saw a car go through an auction a couple of years ago that was an early 70's Ventura turned into a Nova.

Turning a Firebird into a Camaro is like turning a Prime Rib into hamburger.
