1997 Pontiac Trans Am
The 'Trans-Am series' is an automobile racing series that was
created in 1966 by Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) President John
Bishop. Originally known as the Trans-American Sedan Championship,
the name was changed to the Trans-American Championship for 1967
and henceforth. The series has in fact gone by a variety of
different names through the years (too many to list), some linked
to sponsors, some not. It has evolved over time from its original
format as a Manufacturers' Championship series for modified
passenger sedans and Coupes to its current form as a Drivers' /
Manufacturers' Championship Series that is open to GT style race
cars. Champion drivers have been officially recognized, and
Drivers' Championship(s) have been awarded since the 1972 season.
Despite its name, the Trans Am was not initially used in the Trans
Am Series, as its smallest engine exceeded the SCCA's five-liter
displacement limit. Pontiac paid a $5 license fee to SCCA for each
Trans Am sold to use the name.
For consignment a WS6 performance package Trans Am. A virtually
spotless car save for the few faults one would see on a 22 year old
car, this car runs great and flies like a screaming chicken!
Black on black on black with just a spattering of red badging. From
the long low sloped hood with a massive scoop, to the window
surrounds, belt line trim to rear spoiler, and even smoked glass
rear taillights, we see miles of straight black that has panels
that mind their gaps fairly well. Special WS6 polished chrome
wheels are on all 4 corners, and we can see shades of dual chrome
tipped dual exhaust peeking out from the rear bottom.
Miles of tweed like square patterned cloth with tiny black squares
in a field of gray, cover the very clean interior buckets and 2+2
rear bench. Keeping in the theme, gray carpet in good condition,
with some soiled floor mats above, floods the floors, rear cargo
area under the hatch, and a nice tight headliner is above. Peering
toward the dash it is standard Trans Am fare excepting a must have
on every interior, a PS-2! With a flip out mounted screen, your
passengers can be entertained for hours with this baby! Consigner
states that there has been Dynamat interior soundproofing added.
Also noted is a kick ass Kenwood Audio system, so when you battle
Pikachu, you can hear every weapon being used.
With the WS6 upgrade and some consigner upgrades, we see a 350ci V8
LT-1 mill, with the advantage of Ram Air addition. A 6-speed manual
T56 transmission helps light up the tires, and get you going,
Not unlike the top view, gazing underneath we see no rust that is
problematic. Floor pans, and frame look very good and sound. A
Hotchkiss front strut support has been added, as has Eibach
springs, exhaust headers with electronic cutouts, and the factory
spec. 10 bolt 3.23 posi rear. Power disc brakes are noted all
around and stop on a dime.
A very clean 63,000 mile car that has plenty of life left inside
and out. If you are looking for a nice example Trans Am that is not
a Smoky and the Bandit type, look no further than the halls of
Classic Auto Mall, and this Black Beauty.
