1975 Trans Am

Joe LohrCompleted Projects

1975 Trans Am's were somewhat unique. They looked much like the 1974, but featured a wraparound rear window as the main distinguishing factor. 1974 and 1975's had rubber bumpers, unlike the 1976 models that had body-color bumpers. This customer has a sentimental value to '75's, as he had one in high school. Muscle cars are not quite the high-powered, great handling machines we remember, and we are slightly spoiled by modern technology. This Trans Am received all the modern necessities, while keeping the classic styling. That's why our tagline is "Where Classic Style Meets Modern Technology"!
