Last Call: Flying Firebird Edition

Flying Firebird
I don’t know if the seller of this ’79 Trans Am, located in New Hampshire, has priced it right, as I can’t seem to get past the picture of the car taken from the rear. The angle is such that neither its wheels nor their shadows are expressly evident, affording the car the illusion of floating in air. If it is in fact a floating Firebird, then I’d say at fourteen grand, he has seriously under-estimated the asking price.

    It’s a Trans-Dimensional Am.

    Upon discovering how cheap hover conversions were by 2015, Doc Brown decided to have some fun. And if they became modernized retro collectible cars with an elevated resale value, well, where would be the harm in that?

        Random explosions, unprovoked car crashes, and lots of senseless talk about pressure. Must be a lesson iin PHILO101.

    Wow. I almost bought a metallic aqua WS6 in January, 1981, at a Nissan dealer, for $6500. But then the salesman, a German guy, dissed my ’78 Fox and only offered me $2200 as a trade-in (it was $7400 when I bought it in September of ’78). He compared it to the DKWs he remembered from living in West Germany. Pissed me off. Ten months later, I traded the Audi for a ’68 Bonneville – they gave me $2800 for it, which after paying off the loan, I only had to give $300 for the Bonneville. But I was rid of the unreliable Fox.
    Oh, and the original wheels aren’t “combs” – they’re gold 8″ snowflakes.

    I sort of posted a long post here earlier today, something as rare as a blog comment not written on the sh*tter. It disappeared. Might that be due to the post containing quite a lot of links?

    I think the floating Camaro version looks a little better. I love Renaud Marion’s levitating cars.

    79 Trans Ams did not come with honeycomb wheels! They were snow flake type.
