Hello guys, I am new to this forum and have come to ask questions about my 1976 Trans am.

It is the 6.6L with an automatic transmission, and it’s been in the family since it was new. and all of the parts are original except for a sound system and ac, and it even had the original first aid kit and manual.

I am 15 years old, and I am into old cars.

This car is not my first time getting an old car running and driving.

I have a 1926 Ford TT truck that I got running and driving all by myself.

My TA was parked in 2000 and has never moved from there since.

It was running and driving when it was parked, and I have no clue why it was parked because I was not born.

The car is in excellent condition besides rust in the rear passenger quarter panel.

I want to ask what steps I should take when getting it to run.

Are there certain things to look out for or specific procedures?

Please enlighten me.

I really appreciate any help you can provide.
Jacob Mangold

Welcome!

We love to see young kids getting into cars, especially an awesome Trans Am that you have.

You need to start with the fuel system, get all the fluids changed out, and see how the motor is.

Good luck, as we will be waiting to hear back about how it goes for you.

Thank you,
PTA Staff
