Trans Am Racing At Lime Rock, And Miatas Too

Lime Rock Park kicked off their official season this Memorial Day weekend with a ear splitting bang.

SRT isn't completely gone from motorsports. They're still alive and kicking with partner Miller Racing, who runs a sweet lime green Challenger in the Trans-Am series.

When the folks at OPTIMA sent me over a preview of the Ultimate Street Car Invitational running on SPEED last month I was amused to see two of the very different cars running were a Bandit Trans-Am and a 2003 Mitsubishi Evo.

Watch the last brand new 1979 Pontiac Trans Am sell at auction

A few weeks ago we told about what would likely be the last chance to ever buy a brand new 1979 Pontiac Trans Am from the showroom floor. Last Saturday the car left the Indiana showroom where it spent the last 32 years after one deep pocketed Pontiac enthusiast paid $85,000 for the Trans Am.
