Is it me or has the collector car world gone ga ga over second gen Trans Ams? $100k for a 1980 turbo TA? $170K for a 79 TA? Granted these two are special cars, 750 miles on the ’80 and 7.9 miles on the ’79. What a couple of time capsules! The market seems to be pretty strong on the non super low mile cars, as well.
Yeah, the Trans Am had an unbelievable showing at Barrett Jackson this year. Whoda thought those cars, especially that era, would bring so much cash. And they actually sold, unlike the 69 Trans Am convertibles at Mecum.
