Dirtiest Car Ever! First Wash in 20 Years Lost Pontiac Trans Am Rare 455 HO

25. mars. 2021
1 328 963 Ganger

This has been one of my pet-preservation-projects over the past few months. I wanted to create what I feel would be a fun "TV show for NOtown". This was shot over 9 days, 1200+ individual clips, and obviously a ton of car detailing disaster work. For whatever reason, the idea of rescuing or "preserving" a car for someone else to enjoy and rebuild is incredible satisfying. Anyhow, this is actually one of the dirtiest cars I've ever worked on which created a few interesting paint washing problems. The paint was so rough from sun exposure that the dirt was incredibly challenging to clean or remove from the surface of the paint. Likewise, Joe told me later that he has a few extra body panels in his garage that he and Buddy can use for the rust repair stage of the restoration. This was definitely the first wash in 20 years, but well worth the effort. Hope everyone enjoys! -Larry

  • Gotta love the pro mechanic, ol "maestro" hollering for a 13mm socket to remove the diagonal fender braces to access the battery for replacement. And seemingly completely oblivious to the fact that there wouldn't have even been a single metric sized fastener, anywhere on that entire, model year 1975, American car.

  • Who has the soul to scrap a classic car, in a quite good condition like that? Once we have found a '92 Mini, but police was involved. We stepped on their toes day after day, for 6 years. We visited this car like the cemetery, and one day, we found it vandalized. After 10(!) years, the owner of the property called, that the police closed the case. (post office robbery, arrested them in 2 hours after back in the day) We visited the Mini once again. Because of the broken windows, head/tail lights, violated hood, the cars bottom was one big complete hole. So save as much cars as You can. They have historic value, and will make so much people smile, and pop up some memories...

  • I didn’t really think the car was worth the effort. Like putting lipstick on a pig. There is a lot of money involved in restoring that T/A. New quarter panels, front fenders, interior, paint, not to mention the engine, transmission and brakes. If the owner spent $25k the job still wouldn’t be done. I don’t know what the value of that car would be when finished but suspect the restoration cost would exceed the value.
