Just when I got it all running great, my daily driver gets a hit and run. So I must sell the 77 to finance a new daily driver. The details are listed below and I'm considering trade plus cash for a newer Trans Am WS6 or Vette. I really wish I didn't have to sell but the pick up has given up.

This car is in good shape with good paint. Everyone who has seen the car agrees. The car drives smooth and runs strong. Lumpy enough idle to sound awesome but still maintain excellent driveability. The Hooker dual exhaust and headers sound great. My personal best 0-60 time is 7.39. Of course that is with the old passenger stop watch routine :)! The cruise control has been removed from the car but I still have the parts. I also have the original radiator and clutch fan.

I drive this car on the weekends in Houston with the A/C and have never seen the north side of 200 degrees on the thermostat. The Griffin radiator works awesome! I have spent a lot of time and money making this car a lot of fun but my daily driver was the victim of a hit and run, so the C3 must go to finance a new car.

I have an mpeg video of her at idle and some throttle available. Also, more pictures are available at:

Sorry to hear that Russ. Good luck with selling it and finding a new daily driver.

I tried to convince my wife to buy a 30th Anniversary Camaro Z28 this weekend with under 30,000 miles and selling for $17,500. No go. She wants a Vette.
