Custom cars

Post by Bandit on Sun Feb 22, 2015 8:05 pm

Always loved customised stuff,this first Trans Am is my favourite,i saw it at a car show in Blackpool around 79/80,car was done in 79.It's a love it or hate it car,a bit OTT for some and makes purists cry like a baby lol!

First one is my favouriteand it's still around and still looks exactly same as it has been kept in a museum,was put back on road in 2013.At the end of the day though it's a car that was done in the 70's and most 70's customs look out of place these days,but 70's was my favourite decade.

Most people wouldn't like it mostly because it started life as a bullnose,a 73 i think.The nosecone and rear bumper are custom made fibreglass parts.
