1979 Pontiac Trans AM

Another great car that I saw at the Tallahassee Automobile Museum is muscle car,
a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am SE.The 1979 Firebird was re-designed with new graphics and a front nose with quad rectangular headlamps that stood in seperate bezels with a new grille below them. The rear end also got a make-over and featured blackout panels that disguised the taillights on Formula and Trans Am models.

Note: Another record setting year for the Trans Am and it's sales and a special silver 10th Anniversary edition Trans Am was sold in what would be the last year for the Pontiac 400 engine.
This car is refer as the Bandit,made famous by the movie Smokey and the Bandit, by Burt Reynolds.This is the fastest factory car Pontiac Car ever produced.
Fully restored, this car is painted black, with a gold firebird on the hood.And it has only 10 actual miles driven.

I had a friend who had one of these way back in about 1987. Awesome, powerful car. One of my favorite cars of all time.

I owned a '71 TA and that car had a 454 in it. I always thought that the Pontiac GTO's of the late '60s were the fastest and fattest Pontiacs ever made?
