I saw a brand new Z06 at my local Chevy/GMC/Buick dealer. Holy god. My friend described it best, " It looks like a toy race car. " That thing looked so tough in person. Those back tires, how in the world does it break those 335's loose?!? From behind they look like they cover about half the cars' width(1/4 on each side). The clear center spoiler area, carbon discs(also first time seeing those in person), carbon splitter.. Sexy Sexy car. I wanted to take a picture of her but it was in between two other cars(on the lot not showroom surprisingly enough) and it didn't deserve to share a picture with anything else. lol

I saw a Lamborghini Miura for the first time ever in Austin last week while on vacation. It was pulled over by a cop. A bright aqua blue color. Impossibly gorgeous. 

Also saw a beautiful Suzuka Grey R8 V10 Spyder. A silver i8 which was stunning. A few 458's. Several super clean 300ZX's. Saw a yellow C7 Z06 for the first time. The BMW dealer in Austin had a new X5 M in Long Beach Blue that looked amazing.

 

No pics, sorry.

This one's for Olds:

Trans-Am. Or Trans-Ain't.

AH!!!

 

I FOUND IT!!!

 

Thanx Buddy! :thumbsup:

 

Cheers. :cheers:

 

 

Unfortunately...its Trans-aint.

I wonder if Kevin Morgan will continue this conversion with the Alpha Camaro.

'34 Ford pickup, black (duh), stock, nice clean shape, rollin'.

'48 Lincoln convert, light turquoise w/ white top, customized rather grotesquely with tube bar grill & quad rectangular headlights, clean tho, parked in Home Depot lot.

'50 Lincoln convert, black w/ white top (up), stock, flawless, rollin'.

'51 Ford Tudor sedan, black with yellow flames, period '50s mild customizing, parked in driveway.

Late 80s Cutlass Cierra International Coupe. 2-tone black with gray lower body cladding.  From 40 feet, it looked to be a museum piece. 

 

These are 3800 powered which was a good lot of engine for the day for such a lightweight car.  In this configuration, it is a rather rare piece though not worth much monetarily.

Its over the top....but that is how Trans Ams were...and Pontiacs for that matter.


 

About the graphics....yeah...Ill agree...eyesore...but that style is from a different time...and had it been a real Trans Am made by Pontiac from General Motors along side the Zeta Camaro...those graphics and fake vents would not be on it....but since its a homage car....

Would you know if International Series Cutlas Ciera 4 doors came with a 3800?

Or was it only for 2 door coupes?

 

I dont remember seeing any 2 door International Series Cieras, but plenty 4 door sedans.

According to the other page of that brochure I found, it looks like the 3800 is standard in the International Series
