    1969 Pontiac Trans Am

    The 1969 Pontiac Trans Am was a beginning of a great thing, with only 697 produced they are very rare. Here's a link to an article about this special car:

    ok...this may force me to dig through my old boxes of crap...

    around 1979-80 I had the opportunity to purchase a 1969 Trans Am convertible for $3500...but I wanted a T-bird or 'Vette at the time, so never followed through. Duh!!!
    I wish they all could be California squirrels!
    Past Rides: 2003 Grand Am GT1 (saved me), 1995 Bonneville SLE (RIP), 1986 635 CSi, 1984 Estate Wagon, 1978 Malibu Classic, 1978 Corvette, 1975 Vega Kammback (Miss ya'), 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger (STFU...it got me there!)

    That was before anyone was making 1969 Trans Am convertible clones, so I am sure that it was the genuine article. Wow, you are probably kicking yourself for not purchasing it. Who knew back in 1979-1980 how rare they were and what they would be worth now? I had a chance to buy a low mileage mint conditioned all-original (Ram Air III/4-speed) 1969 Trans Am coupe back in early 1995 for $12,000. I was very close to purchasing it at the time but decided to save my money since my finances were tight at the time, I kick myself every time I think about it.

    Here's one genuine (1 of 8 produced) 1969 Trans Am convertible that went on the auction block two years back, the pre-auction estimate was $500,000. I am not sure what it sold for:
