Gateway Classic 1975 Corvettes

Gateway Classic 1975 Corvettes

Many different Corvettes for sale…Which one if the right one for you? Here are some samples of Corvettes for sale. My favorite is the C3. I believe that this is when the popularity of the car went through the roof. Now even more so, as they are fairly cheap to fix, and maintain. Parts all of the web are available for this car. I am currently working on my 2nd Corvette. The 1982 Cross Fire Injection. The last year of the C3. Enjoy this video, it should make your juices flow…

1975 Corvette Stingray

The 1975 Corvette Stingray – You Tube Video

The 1975 Stingray is the last year of the Stingray convertible from factory. Sure you will see other convertibles from other years post, but not from factory. Take for instance many of the interchangeable parts throughout the years of the C3. However, should you see say a 1977 Chevy Corvette convertible, it is surely not a factory convertible. Having said that, to each his own. I myself have made many different changes to my 1975 Stingray, and it is my choice, my preference. So I am not here to knock anyone’s choice. Simply stating the facts as I know them. Enjoy the video.

Pompano Festival Semi Annual Car Show – Pontiac Trans AM


The Pompano Festival Car Show

The Trans Am was a specialty package for the Firebird, typically upgrading handling, suspension, and horsepower, as well as minor appearance modifications such as exclusive hoods, spoilers, fog lights and wheels. In using the name Trans Am, a registered trademark, GM agreed to pay $5 per car sold to the SCCA.[20] Four distinct generations were produced between 1969 and 2002. These cars were built on the F-body platform, which was also shared by the Chevrolet Camaro. Despite its name, the Trans Am was not initially used in the Trans Am Series, as its smallest engine exceeded the SCCA’s five liter displacement limit.

The second generation was available from 1970 to 1981 and was featured in the 1977 movie Smokey and the Bandit, the 1978 movie Hooper, the 1979 movie Rocky II, and the 1980 movie Smokey and the Bandit II. The third generation, available from 1982 to 1992, was featured in the 1983 movie Smokey and the Bandit Part 3 and the 1984 movie Alphabet City. KITT, the automotive star, and its evil counterpart KARR, of the popular 1980s TV series Knight Rider, was a modified third-generation Trans Am. The fourth-generation Trans Am, available from model years 1993 to 2002, offered between 275 and 325 bhp (205 and 242 kW).

The Trans Am GTA (Gran Turismo Americano) was an options package available on the Firebird Trans Am which added gold 16-inch diamond-spoke alloy wheels, a mono-chromatic paint scheme and special cloisonnĂ© GTA badges. The GTA (along with the Formula model that was intended to fill the gap between the base model Firebird and mid-level Trans Am) was the brainchild of former Pontiac marketing manager Lou Wassel. It was intended to be the “ultimate” Trans Am and was the most expensive Firebird available. The GTA equipment package officially went on sale in 1987 and avoided a gas-guzzler tax thanks to its lightweight PW 16-inch gold cross-lace wheels. The high-performance WS6 suspension package was also re-tuned to offer a more compliant ride while still maintaining tight handling characteristics. Engine choices consisted of a L98 5.7 liter (350 ci) TPI (Tuned Port Injection) V8 mated to GM’s corporate 700R4 automatic transmission or the 5.0 liter (305 ci) TPI V8. A five-speed manual was available but was mated to the 5.0 liter only. The GTA trim level was available from 1987 through the 1992 model year.
