ONLY 42,984 ORIGINAL MILES, VERY CLEAN TRANS AM, GREAT COLOR, 80'S CLASSIC!

Come with me back to the days when you were in high school and this 1987 Trans Am was the nastiest car on the block. An incredible, unmolested survivor with just 42,894 original miles, this T/A is still a blast to drive and still gets admiring looks out on the road. In fact, good luck finding more V8 fun for less money than this cool Pontiac.

It'll blow your mind to learn that this Trans Am from your glory days now qualifies as an antique with the Antique Automobile Club of America, but it's 26 years old now. The good news is that it's only been driven about 1600 miles a year, so it's still quite fresh and still plenty fast. The swoopy Firebird bodywork, which, for a time, made it the most aerodynamic car in America, still looks great today. Bright blue paint shines up beautifully and doesn't show any evidence of repaints or accident repairs, and the silver lower cladding is both sporty and in good shape. Personally, I like the lack of graphics on this one, although showing a bit of restraint was never Pontiac's style. T-tops, a slick wrap-around rear spoiler (no cracks!) and the cool checkerboard taillights are all in great condition and add to the distinctive '80s icon's look.

The gray cloth interior is a great place for performance driving. The buckets are supportive but not confining, and the grippy cloth is great for holding you in place, because this sucker still has what it takes in the corners. The carpets and door panels show a bit of wear, but it's entirely appropriate to the car's age. GM was still thinking that an 85 MPH speedometer would keep folks from speeding, but the gauges are still functional and highly legible, so they got the basics right anyway. A/C, power windows and locks, and cruise control are great options in your new muscle car, and even the original AM/FM stereo is still in the center of the dash, a genuine anomaly in today's entertainment-crazed world. Original bags for the T-tops make it easy to enjoy open-air motoring without worrying about breakage and you'll be impressed by the fact that the original gas struts can still support the open hatch.

GM's torquey and rugged 305 cubic inch V8 was a favorite in 1987, and while its horsepower figures may not be all that impressive today, it's still a real blast to stomp the throttle and feel the torque as it rockets the Trans Am forward. It's also blissfully stock, which means it hasn't been abused or raced, and runs as well as the day the original owner took it home. There are a few chrome dress-up pieces under the hood, and it really is spotless, but other than routine maintenance items, it's 100% original. It's backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive with quick reflexes and cruises relatively efficiently with a set of 3.08 gears out back. Original cast aluminum wheels show minimal curb rash and wear newer 215/65/15 radials to complete the '80s ensemble.

Lots of fun, not much cash, that's the Trans Am's strength. The fact that they're also quickly becoming genuine collectors' items can only help values in the future. Call today!
