Didn't he say he bought it off someone on eBay? The bidding did end on that car so he could have been the winning bidder.

Ok, he posted that he bought it on the 8th. The auction ended today the 12th. I mean, if he bought it, why would it still be on eBay? :roll:

Depends on how the arrangement was made. Dunno... Hopefully he'll post here again and clear this question up...?

It looked to me like it was reposted with a lower reserve when I checked, so I wonder if the deal fell through?
KITT project is on again!

Very nice car :D


Anyways the recaro option was available from 82-86(As a mater of fact I happen to have a 82 Recaro parts car in my garage 8) ).But for 85-86 it was just a interior option.

I'll try and email you some this week,But there really is no point since a good friend of mine already bought almost every single part from it.And not that I really want to give away my top secret location of Rims and caps 8) :wink:

And I just parted out a Red/Black 82 Trans Am I got for $150 with Pmd Seats (I'm a sneaky monkey).8) :twisted: But that car has long been striped and the body crushed :cry:

What was wrong with the Red/Black 82? No title? Sad man, another 82 gone. Hopefully, I'll be going to a police auction with my neighbor next week. He said there was a Trans Am there. Got to go check it out. Plus he was telling me about how cheap cars are sold there.
A newer Toyota Camry went for $600 :shock:

So imagine this Trans Am for like $150! Gonna bring all my nickels and pennies.

Dave, Im sure you still have my email address. If not, it's Suprasuprise111@aol.com

Sorry I didn't post back soon (problems with KRF).

I called the guy's number and made him an offer. He had the car on Ebay twice, but the reserve did not get met.

The car is still in Deleware being repaired (broken transmission linkage), hope to aquire it soon.

As soon as I get the car I'll take some more pics of me in it to satisfy the pessimistic.

Yeah, for sure man. 8)

I go through the Car papers in this city looking for Trans Am parts to sell. I found a 82 about 5 miles from me. Asking about $1500. But I might go take a look at it. See if he has the original wheels. It's a V6 car so i most likely had the 14" Turbo Casts.
