The Trans Am racing series from the late 60s and early 70s featured the new Pony cars that were just hitting the market back then. This included the Mustang, Camaro, Barracuda, Challenger and Javelin. There were a few others such as Porsche and the ocassional Firebird. These were the cars designed for the young and the Trans Am race cars looked JUST LIKE the cars they dove on the street. The racing series was emensily popular with some of the best race action anywhere. The following is a short clip but it tells it better than I~
I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
