Hot rod magazine

I was looking at a old hot rod magazine and found one that featured the TTA in it. It was just a little small section but i was thought it was cool. The cover says celebrating 25 years of TRANS Am. It also featured a late 70's trans am with GTA wheels. Does anyone remember this issue of Hot Rod? It was a little odd to see GTA wheels on a late 70's bird.

Re: Hot rod magazine

I have tons of old magazines, alot with articles on the 1989 20th Anniversary Turbo Trans Am (for some reason ).
What month/year issue are you talking about.
Also, why would it be odd to see 16 inch Diamond Spoke wheels on a second gen Firebird/Trans Am?
It was a popular conversion.
I know, as I have it done to a car of mine, since 1987.
I updated the '87 wheels, to '89 wheels, in 1989.
