1978 Pontiac Trans Am Trans AmThis opportunity comes once in a lifetime. This is quite possibly the coolest Muscle car of all time. This is a Super Rare Authenticated 1978 Macho DKM 151 Trans Am in Martinique Blue with T-tops. This is not yet another Bandit car with stickers all over it. This is the real deal DKM Performance design Macho Trans Am.This is one of approximately 200 which were produced in 1978. This is one of only a few in this condition left in the world. As TAs become more collectible, this authenticated Macho TA should skyrocket in price. The car is in near show quality condition and is in great daily driver condition. The car comes with PHS documents, Build Sheet, Original Macho TA Magazine Article and Letter of Authenticity signed by Dennis Mecham! The car has been restored and many items have been replaced or rebuilt. Below is a short list of the main components that have been improved:

The car runs very strong and will fry the tires in first and second gear. The owner of this car will need to practice receiving compliments and taking photos. It is a Head Turner and the engine sounds fantastic. Engine was professionally rebuilt at RPM Elite Engines and is a modified stock Pontiac 455 V8. We kept it original with the addition of the very desirable RAM Air Exhaust Manifolds and Crane Cam H-278-2. According to the Master Mechanic it should be in the 400 HP range. A true investment collectible vehicle .If you are not familiar with Macho Trans Ams I encourage you to Google the Internet and learn about this true performance American GT. Runs and Drives like a performance car dream.
Followup on questions:
Yes I have the correct numbered Macho TA Plaque that goes on the console. I am in process of acquiring the steering DKM button,
By all accounts this is the original engine used by Mecham Performance Shop to produce this Macho TA DKM 151 ( See Letter of Authenticity written and signed by Dennis Mecham).I want to be clear. This is not the original 400 Pontiac put in the car. The owner upgraded the engine to the Pontiac 455. It is a simple swap because they are interchangeable. The owner apparently wanted the best performance Macho TA . It is the only authenticated (in current configuration) Macho TA with 455. The Mecham Performance shop was about producing a superior performance vehicle. This is not a stock TA thats the whole point of it. There is a long list of modifications that were done to a stock TA to turn it into a Macho.
The engine rebuild was recently done (February 2016). The engine has been properly broken in and has about 400 miles on the rebuild. The Engine is dressed in Pontiac Blue with Smooth Chrome Valve covers (with drippers) just like stock.
