The January auctions broke all kinds of records this year, with Mecum and Barrett-Jackson grossing over $420 Million in just two events!   Couple this with the amazing amount of super high-end hot rods and customs at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA, and it’s easy to see that enthusiasm for classic cars is at an all-time high!  Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke and Kevin Oeste cover all this plus Automotive Trivia, and some sneak peeks into some new projects Kevin is working on with the SCTA and his encounter with Billy Gibbons and the CadZZilla project.   There’s even a cameo from Kelle!  It’s a really big show!

1978 Pontiac Trans Am

This rendering is the goal for this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am, which will have a nod towards the modern without losing the “DNA” of the legendary Trans Am. It will be powered by an LS engine, a 6-speed manual transmission, and will roll on upgraded suspension and 19″ YearOne snowflake wheels. The color scheme recalls the 10th Anniversary Trans Am gray / silver layout, only inverted on the car. It will also feature loads of modern upgrades inside, like better seating, gauges, Vintage Air A/C, a tilt column, sound deadening, performance audio, and much more.

This Trans Am is destined to be GM Dealer serviced when complete, so our team is building a book of information, warrantee documents, and other specifications so the car is dealer-friendly to service. You can hear that story in the V8 Radio Podcast below.
