1976 Trans Am
Bought off original owner in 2006 here in my Hometown of Bay Roberts
It was bought new at the Terra Nova Motors branch in South River(long gone)
in the summer of 1976 by Keith Morgan who has been a friend of mine for many years.
Not many people especially here in NL can say they own an original survivor car that's been here it's whole life,in the town I grew up in,and can also say they remember the first time they ever laid eyes on it!
Well I do, I was around 13 he had Cragar wheels on it with 50s on the back,side pipes,
traction bars,rear window louvers,and a CB antenna on the trunk.
I thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen with that big burning bird on the hood!
It was love at first sight little did I know 30 years later I would own it. L. Rex Drover

I purchased the car in Ontario in 2014, but my family has a long history with the 1980 Pace Car. My father and mother-in-law drove away from their wedding in his 1980 Pace Car. When they found out my future wife was on the way that sports car was sold to get a more responsible family vehicle. Fast forward 25 years or so and right before my wife and I were married my father-in-law buys another one. We drove away from our wedding ceremony in his car, just like he had before us. A year later my wife was visiting her family and we saw yet another Pace Car up for sale. They went and saw it, with me back in Newfoundland, and we agreed to buy it over the phone. Late that summer we drove it home St. John's have been putting the miles on ever since.Gerald Mercer #5 Founding Member

This is my 73 T/A that my father owned from 74-77, he then sold it and After 20 years He thought the car was long gone as he lost track of it. I tracked it down and found it around 2012 and made multiple attempts to buy it back which were all unsuccessful until Jan 2017 when I finally go the car back. It is in need of extensive restoration which I will be soon starting the resto which will start with a rotisserie and glass bead blasting. I’m hoping to go back to the original buccaneer red and fairly stock rebuild. I’ll keep pics posted of my progress as the build moved on

1988 Pontiac trans am GTA
350 auto with headers, exhaust and a cam. Tbar roof with power windows and locks. Car has the digital dash and steering wheel controls. Many plans for this car in the near future!
I bought this car for a project for my father in law and myself, I’ve driven her a few times and fell in love right away. Currently it is sitting on jack stands with tires removed and the body panels are starting to come off and the engine will be pulled in the next few weeks. I will keep updates on the FB page with any progress. One day I’m planning on this being my sons car! Thanks for the opportunity and I hope to soon be the newest member of The Firebird Club of Canada with the first 3rd Gen in the NL chapter. Thank you

My dad had this 1974 Formula 400 back in the 70’s and 80’s.
To make a long story short. I tried to track down the car to see where it ended up but found out it was scrapped.
I ended up getting the formula hood from his original car and I am know building a clone of his.
