    Default Killer1986 Pontiac Trans Am show car and trailer !!!

    Listing this over the top show car for a good friend of mine.













    This was basically a $ 100,000.00 make over. The list is endless but ill catorogise it the best I can. I spent over 1000 of my own hours in a 13 month time peroid from dec 02 to jan 04 . I built is in 5 different garages and my trailer. All old school hand tools nothing high tech. and nothing computerised . I killed myself building my dream car and its built with all of my blood sweat and tears and a lot of love.

    Interior
    all material and plastic is original from 86
    seats are recaro
    Radio is by mitsubishi ( black numbers gold back round ) perfect colors for my theme ;-)
    Steering wheel is by billet specialities called a Taladega ( matches my rims )
    Steering colum is a tilt and ignitionless all alm. and is totally chromed plated and built by the company called ( Idid it )
    Remounted the ignition key above the radio the ignition switch is billet alm. also
    Gauges are by VDO there the Phantom VDO series there the white faced series with red back lighting and the speed odometer is cable fed and not computer fed and all other gages are hard wired because I removed the computer and all of the wiring
    Gauges they are set in black mirrored plexi glass
    Radio face plate and shift plate are lazer cut in mirrored stainless, Shift plate has 3 switches in it. The Rear one is my fuel pump and the front 2 is for my 3 coolant6 fans. One is for my puller fan and the other is for my two pusher fans
    B&M Mega shifter with a positive reverse lock out all chrome and 24k gold plated
    Rear view mirror is a billet alm. eagles head
    Rear inside mounted battery in T top storage area in the valley in a chrome battery box
    I removed the driveshaft and ran the positive in the shaft valley and the ground to the shortest path to rear frame.

    Body my design and painted by Arthur Phillip Scranton PA. Airbrushing by Pooch of Tobyhanna PA
    Whole new look I took GM'c black and gold theme and made my own design with there same theme but my colors. I tore the whole car down in Arts shop doing 12-14 hour days every fri to Sunday for 3 months . Art worked his magic and I reassymbed the car all in his shop in 3 months time.
    Painted same code as in 86 ( 8222 )
    6 coats black 4 coats clear
    Areo package is Duponts Chromeilusion ( one word ) Blasberry and the stripe on top is also Duponts but it is called Pure Fire Prisiom. Each color has 5 prisims each total 10 color flip.
    Sand Blasted phoenix on rear window ( from Pat Whittaker ) very sad loss to us as he passed. That's tinted ( filled in with the chromeilusion paint ).
    Rear phoenix ( key hole ) dismantled and painted chromeilusion both colors
    the sail panels the airbrushed Pontiac logo is split in the middle and looks 3-d and its painted in both blasberry and pure fireprisim. The Hood was cut for the Weiand intake system. and fully smoothed underneath and painted in both blasberry and pure fireprisim. Reinforced hole and Art also fabricated a curved raising lip at the windshield end Had to we make a lot of mods to make the hood work
    The eagel is my design all hand done not stenceld ( airbrushed ) in Duponts chromeilusion colors also house of kolor candys pearls and metallics.
    The eagle ( God ) is tearing open the grave with his talons ( the hole ) of Chief Pontiac and his tribe. you'll see a lot of little red dots that's the eyes of skulls. That's His tribe behind him. There getting resurrected from the dead. The paint peeling away and chips is a mirror of the chromeilusion paint from the underside of the hood .
    Still the original rubber rear wing and yes 3rd break light works.
    Drive train including tires rims.Trans by Dean at Pro built transmissions.

Fuel fed by a Holly red 7 psi electric fuel pump and that's fed into a ( had to tweak ) a doubble fuel runner and tweaked carb fuel lines with a pressure gauge at the carb end with red ends. The 390's come with conventional bowls. So I orderd a float and bowl kit. Ron and I built them into Cathedrial bowl carbs with the big float bowls for the bigger carb look and reduced the power valves to 5.5's for less fuel flow because the cam is only a 235 lift and a 480 duration.

    Hmmmm....the base car is identical to my '86 Trans Am (we both have Recaro seats). I met a man at the Trans Am Nationals in Dayton Ohio back in 2003 that had a car much like this one. He was from New York state, not Florida. He told me built it himself at night and on weekends and he did it all with a very bad back (he had a couple of back surgerys already at the time). He chrome and gold plated a lot of stuff. He had won a lot of awards with it too. I remember seeing him again at the Detroit Autorama the following year. I can't help but wonder if this is the same car.

    Yeah Frosty its the same guy. Ed Barra. He moved to Florida from New York a little over a year ago. Its just getting too difficult for him to load, unload, clean, etc. etc. We travel together to shows and I help but its just getting to be a bit much.

    I just talked with Ed and he has this ad posted in 5 counties and everyone has been marked. He has been reposting and someone still keeps tagging him on the nose. NO reason at all. People suck.
