11-12-2008 This is pretty cool.  An artist in New York City sent us this letter:

I'm an artist in NYC and I received a grant to produce a sculpture at the largest sculpture park in NYC.  Below is the image of the piece.  It's 17 ft tall and it's a trophy of a 1978 Trans Am.  Thought you might be interested in posting this on your message boards for those in NY the area to visit.
Work is at Socrates Sculpture Park

Best Regards,

05-17-2008 The 76 Bandit Trans Am shirt arrived in the mail today, and it's great!  It's so hard to find a 76 on any kind of shirt.  The company is working on the rest of our models, so everyone should be able to order a shirt with their year model, and the town or city they live in on the bottom.  Here's mine - George (Click on the pictures for a bigger ones)
