A Wonderful Trans Am Ride It was a Tuesday night at about 6:30 p.m.; I was working, but not doing a thing. Bill, one of the salesmen at Pontiac of Beechmont, asked me to clean up a 2002 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air. I told him no problem and went and got the keys and found the car on the lot. I was so excited when I found out the car had a six speed transmission. I have been working at this store for a little over a year now and I get the chance to drive Trans Ams almost every day, but every time I get in a one I still feel like a little kid in a candy store. I pulled the car around the parking lot and pulled it into my bay, so that I could clean it up and get it ready for the customer to pick it up. The new and the last Trans Ams are a thing of beauty and one of the greatest muscle cars ever built. 2002 will be the last year of production for the Pontiac Trans Am. This one was a beautiful pewter color with black leather interior. It was loaded out with power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt steering, traction control, seventeen inch polished aluminum wheels, high performance tires, a six speed transmission with a Hurst shifter, a the wonderful ram air style hood that houses a V8 with three hundred and twenty five horsepower. After I was done admiring the car, it was time to get it ready for that lucky customer that just shelled out a whopping thirty three thousand dollars on it. I made sure that the car was spotless inside and out. I knew that the guy that bought it would be pretty picky since he had just spent that much money on it, but I was lucky. The guy was not coming to pick it up until the next day, so I had plenty of time to get it ready. I took my time washing the outside and dried it off with a water blade and a chamois. Then I dried out the doorjambs. I went and got the vacuum, so I could clean out the inside. After I was done vacuuming, I wiped off all the seats, the dash, and the center console. Then I cleaned the windows inside and out and sprayed the tires with tire shine. I stood back when I was done and admired the beauty of the car. I backed the Trans Am out of the building and started to pull the car around to the front of the building and put it inside the garage, where the salesmen deliver the sold cars. As I was pulling around the building, Bill caught me and told me to take the Trans Am to the gas station and fill it up, since we fill every new car that is sold. I was really excited now; I was getting the chance to take a Ram Air with a six speed down Beechmont Avenue at 8:00 p.m. with no traffic. I pulled out onto Beechmont Ave. and slammed second gear and before I knew it I was going sixty miles an hour and I had not even reached third gear. I went through one light and by the time I got to the next the light had turned red and I slowed down to stop. I looked around and realized I was almost the only car around and that I could do almost anything I wanted. I looked down the road...
