Article and Photography by Rocky Rotella
"James Contos of Fort Collins, Colorado, owns this '73 Trans Am that was modified for Pro-Touring-type competition by Restore A Muscle Car. The body contains a number of subtle modifications that may go unnoticed at first glance and it's been heavily modified mechanically with a large-cube engine and modern suspension components."...
"Once the RAMC crew got into the project, they found ‘some rust issues and other areas that would eventually require attention, so I decided to correct them now,’ notes James. ‘It quickly went from a light freshening up to a full frame-off restoration with the body fastened to a rotisserie. It would also allow me to build the ultimate Pro-Touring Trans Am that I always dreamed of owning.'”
