Bob Sawa 1967 Pontiac Firebird

Representing the STA-BIL® Brand Fuel Treatments

Mark Goldman 1986 Pontiac TransAm

Representing 104+ Octane Boost


In January of 1995 I found my 1986 Trans Am in a used car lot. At the time it had 59,000 miles, was dark blue metallic w/silver ground effects and had been used as a pace car on the local track. It was pretty much a stock 305.

Since that day I have totally transformed her. In 2000 I had my 305 pulled and the car painted Ice Blue w/Pearl Dust and Ghost Flames by Dreamakers Kustoms in Endicott, NY. Upon completion of the paint I installed a custom built 350 Corvette Engine, a 700R4 transmission, Be Cool radiator, fiberglass ram air hood, Eagle alloy wheels and a custom dual muffler system w/dual Monza exhaust tips. The interior is stock except for firebirds embroidered on the headrests, Panasonic stereo w/ MTX custom sub box and Kicker Amp and a BM Ratchet Shifter.

In 2009 I won all local shows in my class and took a 1st place in 3rd Gen at the “Firebirds on the Lawn” in Saratoga Springs, NY.

In 2010 a very good friend of mine helped me tuck all the engine wires into the sub frame and I added a March Performance Serpentine Chromed Front End, Flamed Valve Covers & Breathers, Taylor Wires, Flamed Spark Plug Wire Loom, Flamed Radiator Cap and Lokar Transmission and Oil Dip Sticks.

In 2011 I repeated with another 1st place in 3rd Gen at the “Firebirds on the Lawn” in Saratoga Springs, NY.

In 2012 I put the finishing touches under the hood with a chromed master and brake cylinder.

I hope you enjoy the way my transformed beauty looks.

Compressed-SYE-NickLeogrande-1954MercuryI love all 50’s cars as that is what I grew up with.
