Reader Ride: 1977 Pontiac Trans AM 400Z

Original Air customer, Dave Barron, submitted his 1977 Pontiac Trans AM 400Z that we are featuring this month:

Purchased the car in AZ. in 1984 (spent its whole life there) brought back to MI. in 1985 and stored inside for 24 years. In 2009 / 10 we had a complete frame off restoration done, to as close to OEM as possible. ALL body metal is original, numbers matching, drove it to the first stop of the resto. Car is driven by my wife in the summer only runs like new currently has little over 2K miles on it. Saved and reused all original AC components with exception of the heat exchanger, with the new modern refrigerant it needed a different one, works great all work was upgraded by Florida Air and still works great today. Many additional little details, too much to place here, suffice to say it is virtually original, and people video her driving it.
