Looks like the” Year One” build from a few years back, corvette motor, big brakes and 19 inch wheels. I like the twin turbos though. Love to hear them spool up.

No T-tops = not Bandit.

…” and that’s how I ended up working for Ken Block.” What a personal and professional journey. Wow. Sweet ride, too, as of course it would be.

Wasn´t there article about this Firebird on Speedhunters? I had it on my dekstop. 🙂

Cool car! Firebird was always one of symbols of USA for me and I still want one. And this one is really gorgeous!

Gregg (if you’re reading this) or anyone else: Tell me more about the digital engine data display. What brand, where to source, etc…I’m guessing it ties into the ECU?

And Gregg: awesome Firebird. Waaayyyy beyond original build quality. I’m glad you could make your teenage dream an adult reality!

Smokey and the Bandit on steroids along with a healthy dose of WW’s wares ! Got to be honest .. until seeing this car … Pontiac ‘ Fire Chickens ‘ have never been a personal favorite . It figures it’d take an outsider to finally make a Fire Chicken come good ala restomod and a bit of WRC ingenuity ! Two thumbs up !

WOW!
That’s the best sounding V8 I have ever heard.
And it’s the best Trans Am I have seen.
I would love to see and hear it in the flesh.

Wow!
Trans-Am of any kind to me has always been a bit off – I always felt that it has potential but I didn’t know for what, but now I know. This is one of the coolest things I’ve seen.

Wow! That is the best and most realized T/A I’ve ever seen. I have a feeling it would take a good amount of time to spot all of the tweaks and changes made as they are so perfectly integrated and look so correct. It’s a shame he couldn’t get the new electronics to talk to the old gauges. I suspect that is something he will get sorted before long. The only thing the video lacked was a refrain from “East Bound and Down” as he drove away into the desert evening sunset.
