    Poor Trans Am...Somebody Please take it Away A.S.A.P

    Man i just HATE to see any GM car being trashed or neglected,but it really gets to me when its a trans am or camaro



    i dont know where to begin this car was so beat up
    1.all 4 tires were bald
    2.front bumper cover was torn,cracked and split
    3.no fog lights
    4.all 4 rims had curb rash
    5.all ws6 speedlines were painted black and red(on a nbm car)
    6.car had no visible exhaust
    7.car runs like crap when its running
    8.paint faded
    9.5 people got in the car before they pulled off
    10.a woman was the driver

    how do you fit 5 ppl in a 4th gen t/a? idk either but i guess its possible.i cant lie although the dash was rather dusty and dry there wasnt a single crack on the dash and believe it or not the dashpad wasnt cracked either i couldnt see the seats but from the way this car is being treated i can almost imagine how they look

    They should take the car from the current owner and exchange it for a Dodge Neon or a Ford Focus. I do not know how someonelet their cars get to that point. I would be embarrassed.

    Before i ever owned a T/A (i always like them though,especially 4th gens) when i lived in new orleans in 2005 i knew a guy with a 01 red ws6 this guy was crazzzzzzzy behind this car he loved it with everything in him everytime i looked around he was modding it he had h/c headers,exhaust etc done or more to the car,he spent tons of money on the car,but in early 05 he went to jail for a few months & the storm hit while he was still locked up he left the car with his girl she drove that car like it was stolen and didnt take care of it at all when the hurricane came she left the car & it went 9 ft under water,when the water went down i saw the car & was like dude is gonna kill her when he gets out,as time went on the car was stripped of all its body parts,i wish i would have known what i know now i would have took the ram air hood if not the whole front cap,it happens to cars we love & hate me personally hate to see a 4th gen go to shit,but thats what happens when the right car get into the wrong hands

    I agree i would buy them a ford,toyota,honda,subaru so they can tear that up just to save that T/A truth is it needs a lot of money,tlc,time & effort to bring it back but it can be saved,it runs & drives so its got potential

    At least it is not dented up. Probably could have been worse. I have seen V6 ones in better condition though.

    I've seen a couple of nice LT1 Camaro's over the last few nights at work. I see a bunch of neglected 3rd Gens around here, though. Nice to see some people care.

    I don't understand how even non car people can own a nice car and let it go to crap. Thankfully, I haven't seen a bad looking f-body around here. There's a good handful of LT1s and LS1s around here and all look to be well maintained...

    Wow that is bad. I might have even let it slide if it was V6. But a T/A. C'mon, that's just down right disrespectful

    why? only thing i could see about this is the door panel bulging, which i asked that question a few years ago on here and people acted like they didnt know what i was talking about....ive had 3 birds and all three of them door panels bulged out when i put the window all the way down..

    I think it has more to do with the security aspect than the door bulging issue.

    Simply put,, this is what happens when people own cars they can't afford to fix..

    With the ability these days to purchase a warranty for vehicles with over 100k on the clock means there's a little stupid in that mix also..
