My Trans Am was a car I knew growing up, as it was the car my brother's friend owned in high school, and who were 6 years my senior. One day several years later, while driving down the road with my dad, we saw the TA for sale on the side of the road. At 16 I knew I had to have it! So with some begging, and then the monetary help of my father and grandfather, luckily I became the new owner before someone else did. I later paid the money back and am the longest running owner now since 1994.
