The Car
The 1983 Pontiac Trans Am Daytona was built by Pontiac to commemorate the pace car used for the 1983 Daytona 500, the 25th Anniversary of The Great American Race. Only 2,500 were built, and this one is in great shape. In 1983, this was THE Pontiac to own.

The car here is a very nice example of an early third generation Trans Am. Low miles. Original car. Under my watch, I located AERO wheels, BF Goodrich tires, bowling ball hubcaps, a GM louver, and restored these accessories to be good enough to be added to this sweet ride. Straight body. No rust. T-tops. Special edition 25th Anniversary Daytona 500 package (badges, floormats, etc.). 305 Crossfire Injection, automatic, runs great when I take it out for a spin. Car turns heads everywhere. Interior is looking sharp with Recaro seats. Even have original window stickers! Engine/undercarriage solid, was rustproofed early in its life.

When I first saw this car, I realized that it was too nice to drive and too nice to convert to KITT/KARR. It was my job to preserve this car. And preserve it I did. I put on very few miles, enough to get it solid; I changed the brake booster, brake caliper, spark plugs, (had professionally cleaned and tested) fuel injector, fuel filter / hose, air filters, fluids, and belts.

These days, I don't have time for the car so it has been resting in the garage for some time. The car drove great the last time it was out; solid brake pedal, tight steering, good power. When you're out with the car, be prepared to chat with spectators!

As with any 35 year old car, expect some minor issues. Minor issues I recall are: the air conditioner does not blow cold, battery needs changed, and the trunk key cylinder is loose. Bodywise, the worst areas are: a small dent with scratch on mid door, a credit card size scratch on lower door, and pitted door handles (new handles and Fuel Injection logos are included in this listing). Check out the pics here.
The Collection
For many years, Pontiac was the official pace car of NASCAR. I dug deeper and realized this this 1983 Trans Am Daytona style was used as a pace car for more than the 1983 Daytona 500... it was used at the 1983 Busch Clash, Firecracker 400, and more! As such, I started collecting: items specific to the 1983 Trans Am Daytona, 1983 Daytona 500, 1983 Firecracker 400, Pontiac, Trans Am, wheels, hubcaps, automobilia, and the list goes on and on.
