The Greatest Trans Am Ever Built? 7 foot wide, 700hp, 10,000rpm Track Ripper

  • Published on Jan 4, 2019
  • This is our entire crew's favorite car of SEMA 2018: Riley Stair's WIDE and LOW (yeah, all caps) 1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. But what's even better about the ridiculously good looking bodywork and batshit N/A motor, is the fact that Riley built and fabricated this thing himself in his parent's outdoor garage bay. Major props.

    You’ve got an hour with this Trans Am, where do you take it and what do you do?

      First thigh I'd do is take it to see an alignment rack. A blind person could see from that camber that it can't be right.

    Wen I was a kid they said; "They don't make cars like they used to." and they were right because 70's cars were straight solid turds. Nowadays if we say; "They don't make cars like they used to." it's still true cuz 70's cars were straight solid turds and the new stuff is way better than everything in the past.

    Looks like a import build out of a v8 platform. Nice job on your car but poor taste. Props to your ability and effort. Custom is great and so is stock but the rims and fender flares ruined it for me. But that’s just me.

    The camber & caster is off so bad on the front wheels & on the rear ones as wheel, I don't believe this car could even go around a track until he fixes this issue. It is an awesome car though, & when he gets it dialed in I think he will set some records in a lot of tracks.

    This guy is a baby. Just a kid with a shit load of talent. To hell with the car, its builder is one in a billion. There are guys doing this for decades that don't have the inner strength that this man has. The second generation F body has been out of production for almost 40 years, how does he know about them at all. He needs to be working for a NASCAR team.
