I've had an itch the last few weeks for a late 1980's Trans Am, with T-tops of course. Both a 1989 Trans Am GTA and a standard Trans Am have come up in my deal searching lately. I also have a short list on why right now is not the time for me to pick up one of these gems. Plenty of people find a great deal on a classic ride but for one reason or another can't afford the car. No matter how great the asking price. Can you afford to win one?
It turns out you might be able to, rabbit. Dream Giveaway Garage*, sells virtual online raffle tickets. Old school guys can get paper tickets delivered via the mail. The prizes are bad ass enthusiast cars mostly of the classic muscle variety. Dream Giveaway supports the New Beginning Children's Homes a 501 C 3 charity. So your tickets are tax deductible donations.
Bah, no one wins these things...
Turns out they do. Tony Lanzillotti of Lanz Oil, my go to guy on the 1978 Super Coupe restomod, won a 1977 Bandit Trans Am.
One of the current prize packages is a superior 1979 Bandit Trans Am and the $17,500 for taxes. Yes, Smokey and the Bandit was a better movie than the sequel but I always preferred the 1979 Tans Am. With it's forward look to the future nose and hidden tail lamps. This is a fully restored T/A signed by Burt Reynolds before his passing in September of 2018. This is a T-top, 37K original miles, 403 V8 numbers matching car. I've already got some tasteful mod plans for that '79 Trans Am because I'm going to drive it everywhere! I've already entered a few times my self.
A chance to win a Hellcat Challenger, Chevelle SS, 1972 Bronco, 1969 Mustang Mach 1 and more.
You gotta be in it to win it. Can you afford to win? Got three bucks?
