Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is very happy to present "Ruby Fire", this over the top custom 1980 Pontiac Trans Am SEMA build! You are correct, this IS a 1978 nose on a 1980 T/A, and YES, it IS over the top! This build was completely done in house at The Custom Shop in Flanagan, Illinois specifically for the 2016 SEMA show. The "Ruby Fire" Trans Am build won the Car and Drivers "Top 10 Cars" at SEMA Day 1 while the T/A was on display at Valspar Paint's booth, coated in the brand's Prospray paint. Deep-Red in color, the paint suits the Trans Am's name and shape nicely, and the custom "Ruby Fire" Ruby Red Quad coat paint with the color changing airbrushed graphics guarantee that you will get noticed! There are just so many custom features that it makes a complete write up on it almost impossible! Under the custom ZR1 window in a Shaker style hood is a highly modified LS1 with LSX type upgrades, including custom built ProComp heads, Edie Motorsport pulley system & a custom-fabbed Fuel Injection set up, all dressed & completely show ready! The suspension is all RideTech, with the 4 link rear suspension with coilovers, RideTech tubular control arms and coil overs up front. Subframe Connectors were added to a completely reenforced frame to provide more structural rigidy and the 1/8" Plate steel flooring was added to support the removable 1-piece Targa roof with electronic motorized release latches. Braking is supplied by the 14" Wilwood brakes with 6 piston calipers and the undercarriage is all POR-15 coated and rust proofed. Clayton Machine Works completed all of the interior trim and accessories, complimenting the already stunning interior creation, and the interior is a gorgeous chestnut-color, with TMI seats & door panels that are the type of quality one should expect in a build of this caliber. The Sony TV/DVD, the massive Sony subs, the Radical Audio system w/ 22 speakers & 2,800 watts of power, the Dakota Digital VHX gauges & even the integrated roll cage system are all custom built into the cabin, showing the no expense spared build quality! "Ruby Fire" is a very well know build, has a ton of press and videos, and was even once owned by an "I'm not allowed say his name" billionaire, so if an absolutely insane custom build that is an award magnet is what you are after, then "Ruby Fire" might just be your girl!
