    My Trans Am Winter Project

    A lot of people have been asking me about my new project, so I figured I would start a thread here. Although Not PWC related, this is "Other toys"
    and this is my current and only toy right now...
    So having said all that, I will post some before ..current...and hopefully soon enough, the finished car. Here is some pics of the car the day I got it...

    I am converting this car to a "78 Bandit car" Black and gold, original looking on the outside, with a stroker 460+ cubic inch Pontiac engine that should make close to 500 hp.
    Here is pics of the 78 bumper I got before and after...

    So far the trunk looks really nice...

    looking good, keep up the great work.
    Is a 460 stroker and 500 hp going to be enough power

    What type of suspension setup are you going with?

    It will just be a street car, so it should be able to spin the tires a bit..
    As far as suspension, just stock parts with Poly bushings everywhere. These cars actually handle pretty darn good for there time.
