1 of 4 Turbo Trans Am!

Well at thirdgen fest I got to see a piece of Pontiac history. The guy who owned it said there was three cars that paced it with the strobe kit integrated in the spoiler (this link proves it http://www.indypacecars.com/1989.html) And this is the forth one that the guy who made the strobe kit put together. The man who owned it said "I was just in the right place at the right time to buy it" The map pocket is signed by someone I couldn't make it out might have said Bill something.....heres a video of it leaving thirdgen fest(not my video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhvxXU3pXis
Now for some pics!!

I thought it might be Bill Mitchell, a GM designer, but he passed in late 1988. He was a designer for GM during the 60s and 70s and had a hand in the design of the 1970 Camaro.

Nope Bill Owen, the Buick engine developer working with PAS on this project to get things working .... great guy ... he presented at the TTA re-union in OH last year. He signed my map pocket as well :-)

Other persons signature on there is Scott Kelly of PAS .... see www.pasincorporated.com ....
