When I come out ofrepparttar store this guy has finally got there and is waiting for me and says, “butrepparttar 150549 commercial says Mustangs will beatrepparttar 150550 pants offrepparttar 150551 Trans Am.” I very blithely replied, “Not this Trans Am!”

They don’t make them like this anymore. It’s sad when you think about it! Those of us who lived and grew up inrepparttar 150552 era ofrepparttar 150553 muscle cars, street rods, Saturday night cruise nights were very,very lucky. I feel sorry forrepparttar 150554 youth of today that they missed out on all of this.

So what happened to that great 455 Trans Am, unfortunatelyrepparttar 150555 harsh upstate NY winters aren’tkind to cars and rust tookrepparttar 150556 Trans Am from us. However, we did replace it – with a customized 1973 Vette, which we drove cross country to California, but that’s a whole nother story!
