Most of the material in this thread is to give an understanding of "the big picture" of the Trans-Am series at that time.
I think it helps to see and have an understanding of what the other guys were doing. That's why I have been including it.



Another Trans-Am article from Mike K. (Swede70). Thanks, Mike!

This is a GREAT page on Trans Am stuff.....I feel lucky to stilll be alive and not flamed to death over my AMC rants.  I appreciate all of the attention to this.  The Trans Am series was a great series for all of the manufacturers, and I love seeing it all viewed here, and not some of the old "legends" being reported as fact.
