Bruce Hamilton
Boone, IA
1977 Pontiac Trans Am

This 1977 Pontiac Trans Am became Bruce’s dream car after watching Smokey and the Bandit when he was 11 years old. After aquiring the Trans Am, Bruce restored it to it’s current condition.  With less than 80,000 original miles, the TA has an Oldsmobile 403 engine – which only came on 1,217 Trans Ams.  It also has a Hurst T-Top, gold snowflake rims, all new paint, premolded stripes and decals.  The exhaust is all new with Hooker Ceramic coated headers with Flowmaster Mufflers and chrome dual tips out the back.  The interior is completely stock except for the stereo and carpet. Bruce’s TA still has the original 8 track player AND it still works!
