I had a 1976 Pontiac Trans Am 50th Anniversary Special Edition back the 80's and never dreamed that I would find one again! Many thanks to Pauline and Classic Car Deals for making my dream come true. From the time I made an offer to delivery of the car, it all happened within one week! I will definitely recommend Classic Car Deals in the future. They are very friendly and help you through buying a car over the Internet and feeling comfortable doing so. All phone calls were returned within a timely manner and there were no worries. Thanks again!Reanate Williams
