  • Miles' 1985 Trans-Am. Driveable, titled now.

    1985 Pontiac Firebird, Trans-Am. 305 LG4 motor, 200r4 Auto tranny. 78,000 miles - original engine/tranny. Stock Est. 145whp/245tq. Sad.

    $1000 paid cash for car.
    Parts;
    $280.

    Estimating $100 in paint supplies, 3-400 in audio.





    Update later, place holding.
    Currently= Interior disassembled.
    NO audio.
    Leaky heater core.

    Needs paint.
    Does has T TOPS!
    Needs p/w switch. Headlight relays fixed, up but not down.
    Blinkers need fixing, they stay on.

    78,000 miles. 35psi cold idle oil pressure.
    1,000 for car, 200 for extra rims/tires + edelbrock manifold.
    Pics Friday!


    9/9/2010
    Oil changed, almost killed my self trying to jack on the side of the sub-frame, not the center. I learned something new.
    I've never seen a back wheel come off the ground when i jack up the front. Huh.

    All lights working, headlights are ducttaped in.
    Ordered a heater core at o'reilly's. 29.99.
    Tomorrow it gets plugs (has wires), air filter.
    It's bugging me that i don't have any pictures up.

    Houston, we have liftoff!
    Title transferred, car has plates and is running.
    Does great but i need to adjust the carb for cold idle still.
    Rear driver caliper is dragging (yes, 4 wheel disc), but other than that she's great!
    Windows need a switch still but that's what the t-tops are for
    Pics soooon!

            Huh? Around here it's pretty straight forward.
            If you're serious, i don't think i know what you're talking about.

            This is going to be a huge project, feel free to laugh at me if i fail.

                          Here's how you fix this. If you have ANY other vehicle, make sure that vehicle is listed as your primary vehicle, with the trans am as a secondary.

                          Back before I was married, I paid almost 200 a month for coverage on my 94 sc2, but my 96 Firebird Formula (listed as secondary car) was only 80 a month.

                            No surprise there man, you are 18 years old and a single guy and Trans Am, regardless of how old and underpowered, still screams tickets, racing and damage to them lol. You should always get insurance quotes on something before you buy, just so you know for sure.

                            Beyond that, just try to do what he said and have it listed as a non-daily driving car or something.

                              Have it insured as a leisure vehicle
