’71 Trans Ams of Gregg Gorman from Paulding, Ohio

As you see I am the original owner and originally ordered the car. But it almost didn’t survive delivery! When it came in on February 4, 1971 I received a call from a friend that I better get up to where they were unloading the car because my ordered car was getting ready to fall off the truck!

It was on the top over the cab. We had snow and freezing rain the previous few days and when the driver put the car in reverse it jumped sideways partially off the right side and was caught by the A-arm.

A wrecker across the road in a body shop had a cable on the left frame holding it on! The only thing they could do was give it a quick pull and luckily it slid back on the track with no damage other than a bent brake rotor dust shield!

We kick ourselves to this day for not getting a photo of this occurrence!
