Spotted in Japan: A "Rust-Bandit" 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

March 02, 2013

This abandoned Trans Am was found rusting away in rural Japan. As you can see, there are Mustangs & Camaros rotting beside it, too.

This Firebird Coupe was built in 1979. It has a 6,958cc V8 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
