    1986 Pontiac Trans Am - My Pontiac And Me

    This One Time Owner Joins the 200,000-Mile ClubI still remember it like it was yesterday. I was 24 years old in 1986 and graduating. I worked full-time while attending college to help pay my way through school, and I wanted to reward myself with a new car.inline_mediumwraptextright27361150/features/hppp_1003_1986_pontiac_trans_amhppp_1003_02_z+1986 _pontiac_trans_am+full_view.jpgTrue

    Here's the part that made me cry:


    What an experience it was taking command of its 5.0 V-8 with a four-barrel carb, four-speed automatic transmission, and 2.73 gears. It was nothing less than perfect. It was loaded with all the options (even factory louvers).

    Tuned-port injection was offered from '85 and up.

    Oh well. Like a man with a fat wife, I guess he's happy. But I'd prefer to see a nicely preserved performance model.

    The article said he traded in an '82 Trans Am SE. I believe the performance of an '82 would directly mirror that of an '86 carbed w/2.73 gears.
