PONTIAC FIREBIRD TRANS AM BY RILEY STAIR – BEST OF SEMA 2018Date: 2019-01-09
The best car of SEMA 2018? Quite possibly it's this astounding 1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am by Riley Stair.
Unlike many petrolheads that purchase 'off-the-shelf' items that they may lightly adjust to modify their vehicles, Riley Stair manufactured the majority of this car by himself, from the roll cage to the body panels, the plumbing and so much more. It's fantastic!
In short, this Firebird is 7-foot wide, pumps out 700hp in its current 'conservative' setup and revs to 10 000rpm. Which is outstanding by itself, but it's the meticulous attention to detail of every aspect of the car that is mindblowing. And that he fabricated almost all of it by hand in his parent's side-yard makes me feel like a caveman who hasn't figured out the wheel yet.
There's just so much to talk about that I suggest you hit the play button below and watch in awe as Riley takes TheHoonigans around his masterpiece.
