1978 Pontiac Trans Am

Gateway classic cars of Nashville is proud to digitally present this 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. For most people when they think of muscle cars the second generation Firebird comes to mind. The Firebird has style that is anything but subtle. With beautiful smooth body lines, a duck tail spoiler and shaker hood you know this car means business. Covered in with I call arrest me red, this car is all but impossible to ignore! With a black velour interior this Trans Am has a sinister look that seems to say, Don't even try it! Tucked below the red hood adorned with what we knew when I was a younger man as the screaming chicken is the 400 cubic inch engine that even in the middle of the gas craze and environmental restrictions of the late '70's pumped out enough torque to pull up trees, ok small trees. Backing this power plant is a 3-speed automatic transmission. Now a lot of muscle cars seem to have been built with one thing in mind. Go straight very fast. The steering wheel and brakes were after thoughts. The Trans Am was built to handle the curves and were a joy to drive fast on roads with curves and hills, truly a driver's car. Now I will admit for full disclosure that I have owned many Camaros and trans Am in my life and currently drive a TA as my daily driver and it is anything but stock when I sit in this car it takes me back to the nights of REO Speed wagon's album, you get what you play for and let's just say lots and lots of high-speed fun! Options for this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am include, Air conditioning, AM/FM Cassette player, Power steering, brakes and windows, Tilt steering wheel, Cloth interior and snowflake rims with radial tires. This 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD photos at For more information please call the Nashville showroom at 615-213-1800 or send us an email at
