I bought that 81 trans am today and brought it home ...I sent you pictures of it a month ago...you said you were going to use my picture of a guy with his head out of the hood on the 76 trans am ..that was a black on black car...anyway I took the back seat out and THANK GOD...Its a real Y84 SE trans am...from 1981 with the plain 301 engine...I am going to restore it...but wanted to send you a copy of the build sheet and see if you could tell me if it has anything extra special on it...Its a local car bought here brand new in NC and ...To give a nice story on it...I was looking through the glove box and After 17 years ...This car came back to me...I was about 17 or so years old and lived with my grandmother and right down the street there was a black and gold trans am that I wanted so bad...but the guy wanted 2500.00 for it...back then I couldn't afford but a 500.00 car...the guys name was Gary Moore and I went down there for about a year on and off...just looking at it and trying to get him to sell it to me cheap....He had put a 350 olds in it and the freeze plug had popped out ...I remember he had said that all I had to do was get one of those rubber freeze plugs and put it in there and tighten it up...and it would be fine...well I looked in the glove box and saw his name on a receipt...My Thought was WOW I'll be damned! After all these years ?...and I have known the car was at the junk yard but didn't even think that that was the same car?...Oh ...also I looked under the car and saw that the freeze plug is still missing...I need a front nose a rear bumper cover and two fenders...for it and also the hood is bent from the springs...But The Inside Cleaned up Sooo Good...so here's the pictures and I guess I could be a member now right? Since I have an SE?
