Firebird #2 1981 Trans-Am. I bought this car in Thunderbay in 1985 from its original owner. It had only 30,000 km. Most of those kms are from a trip I made from Thunderbay to Daytona in 1984. It has been stored every winter since then. In the late 1980s, I had an aftermarket Alpine cassette deck and amplifier installed. Now, it's just a clock. Around the same time, I had the rear leafs re-arced, and an extra leaf installed which gives it, its present rake look. It is a WS4 car and it has the original Brentwood Brown paint. It's a little scuffed up, but hanging in there.

Founding member John Stillo

Founding member Mike Clark

1988 Notchback GTA. It's currently undergoing some body work to fix an accident from 1992, which happened long before I owned it in 2006. I bought it from thirdgen classifieds without a motor, but with a clean title. It was originally am American car from florida, and it had a 1991/92 front bumper. Because of that, I started digging and found a lot of evidence it had been in a front-end collision. Last time it was on the road under its own power was in 2010. Then, there was my 1987 GTA. I bought this one last summer so I would have something nice to drive. It didn't take too much to safety but there were some things that were fixed right away to clear up some codes and make it safe to drive (exhaust leak and steering components).

Founding member Peter Pomykacz

Our 1978 Trans-Am was bought as our wedding car for each other from each other. As luck would have it, we found it for sale in the small town I grew up in. The car was originally Red from the factory and all the decals and paint work were completed in the same small shop. Now, our whole family enjoy the sound of that 6.6 L V8 engine.

Founding member Lorraine Bran

My little 1996 V6 which I purchased in June 1983 as my daily driver. This car has been through a lot over the years. From tires being slashed, to having bullets removed from its body and tailights but we keep moving forward. "Firechicken" AKA "The Flaming Seagull" as my mechanic calls her, has been a faithful car all these years. She's in need of some cosmetic repairs, but she starts everytime, and right now, that's all that matters to me.

Founding member Gary Boucher

I purchased my Trans-Am 1977 from my cousin. It had 6,000 miles and I paid $6,000. Now, it has 106K miles. About 7 years ago, we had a ground-up restoration, the engine rebuilt was a boosted cam. I completely disassembled the car apart, and started the restoration. I have been to car shows, and I have never seen one like mine. Maybe because it was a cheap Trans-Am without power windows, A/C, or T-Roof. One thing I noticed is that this Trans-Am has a three-side belt mldg and continues on the fender and across the hood, so I am not sure what model of Trans-Am it is.
