Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale is excited to present this KILLER 1979 Pontiac Trans Am. It was featured on the cover of Poncho Perfections Magazine August 2017 issue; with an 8-page spread devoted to the car. (Magazine included). The Seller indicates it was signed by the Bandit himself- Burt Reynolds; shortly before his passing. Before you say to yourself na; just another Fire Chicken READ ON. This is a true sleeper and it packs a serious case of whoop-ass. The original; low-horsepower Oldsmobile 403 was swapped out with a fierce GM Performance LSX 454 V8; featuring a GM Performance intake and a FAST 1000 cfm throttle body; so the original shaker scoop could be refitted. A Holley LS accessory kit was installed along with a new air conditioning compressor. Burned dinosaurs are expelled through Hooker ceramic headers and a 3 inch custom exhaust system; making it sound wicked. A carbon fiber driveshaft and BMR Watts Link rear suspension system control the torque. Wilwood brake calipers (6 pistons on the front and 3 on the rear) bring it to a stop. This car looks terrific and underwent a frame-off restoration. It is one of the sharpest color combinations you could get on these; and it looks new thanks to an owner who clearly spent a ton of money on it. Everything from the BF Goodrich Radials T/A Tires; to the WS6 style snowflake aluminum wheels; to the Fisher T-Tops and Trans Am graphics gives this outstanding Pontiac a personality that will turn heads. A good many of these 2nd generation Trans Ams are in average to below average condition. Not this one- it got enough love for 25 of them and boy does it stands out. The interior is nothing less than outstanding with the camel tomes and hobnail fabric. Pop the hood and be impressed with the clean; neat and tidy engine swap- and someone surely had a sense of humor spraying it GM Corporate Blue; just as the original motor would have been. It looks factory- better than factory actually. GM rates the LSX 454 at 627 HP @6300 RPM and 586 LB-FT @5100 RPM. Thats more power than ANY factory Pontiac ever built. Stomp on this car and it simply explodes with power and will bake the tires on command. There is just too much to list here. This 1979 Pontiac Trans Am is for sale through our Fort Lauderdale showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and a HD video at for more information please call the showroom at 954-227-4202 or email us at [email protected]

    Good evening Chris, I have just received my 66 Mustang today. I haven't had the chance to try it because of my work, just the time to drive it into the garage, but I can't wait until the weekend! Thanks again for Skillter's follow-up, advice and professionalism! We'll surely be back in touch!

    Chevrolet G20 Van

    Hello, I can also add my experience with Skillter with no problem. I have just bought a G20 Chevrolet van, and received it a week ago. This is my contribution to the Skillter network. I want to share my first experience with the importation of a G20 Chevrolet van via Mr. Doumaiselle's Skillter network. I was very satisfied with all the services during the first contact on the Skillter site as well as with the direct contact with Chris Doumaiselle, his professionalism and the creation of trust concerning the purchase. He was quickly able to put me in contact with his collaborators both in the USA and Rouen. The financial transactions took place without a problem. The vehicle arrived after 2 1/2 months. I also thank Mafy’us in California and their Sosea partner, Elise Boussu, who did a remarkable job in guiding me throughout the administrative procedures up to the delivery of the vehicle, as well as Mr. Michaut from GT Vintage. Again, bravo to the entire Skillter team and their associates, who I sincerely recommend.

    Chevrolet Corvette C1

    Dear Chris, Where do I start? Two months ago we didn't know each other and today you have brought me in person the car I have been dreaming of for at least 40 years – a 1958 Corvette C1 that I only had a scale model of on a shelf in my living room. Incredible! How can I thank you for this double gift: the car of my dreams and you giving me the keys in person? You and your team have been remarkable throughout these two months to inform, explain and reassure me with almost daily follow-up. Everything that you explained, and clearly explained I might add, and promised was delivered on time. Hats off! And huge thanks to be shared with all your teams. Your friendliness, availability, reliability, and the trust you inspired in me, as well as the tears in your eyes when you handed over the keys have made this purchase process an exceptional moment for me, along with the encounter with a man of exceptional human and professional qualities, which is rare in our times. I hope that you make a lot of other people as happy as you have made me and I can only warmly recommend they contact you to fulfill their wildest dreams. I hope with all my heart that we will have the pleasure of meeting again soon and that you will honor me with a visit to my home for a meal during a future trip to the southwest of France. Once again, a huge thank you for everything. With best regards,

    Chevrolet El Camino

    I have just acquired a 1986 El Camino Conquista through the intermediary of Skillter and I would like to congratulate the professionalism of this company and their friendliness. They took care of everything. I received a complete photo dossier of the car as soon as they picked it up from the American seller. I was informed as soon as the ship left the harbor and the French freight forwarder contacted me directly to regularly inform me of the progress of the customs clearance procedure and to obtain collector car registration. Everything went perfectly. I ordered this car in mid-April and I received it at the beginning of July, even more beautiful than in the photos. In all, it took 10 weeks, as was announced at the outset. It is a very reliable company that you can trust and use to purchase your American vehicles with total confidence. Thanks again for all their professionalism and know-how, they have earned their reputation.

    Hello everybody! As a vehicle buyer, I was first attracted by the professionalism of this company, and after some administrative hassle (to put it mildly), I was incredibly impressed by their commitment and empathy to complete this purchase. They didn't hesitate to get involved with the American seller to help me, and I can never thank them enough for that!

    Chevrolet Silverado

    I have just made a childhood dream come true with the help and professionalism of Mr. Doumaiselle and his team. I was easily able to purchase a 1988 Chevrolet pick-up and above all a V8 "made in the USA". From the first contact for an estimate to the delivery of my vehicle on 10/15/2019, they were there on the phone, even on Saturdays and with the difference in time zone, to advise me and reassure me on my choice. I don't regret it. Everything went as planned. After payment, you receive your bills on the same day and then the boss calls you to see if you're happy. The entire chain of Skillter partners were very good, including SOSEA (Élise for customs clearance) and even the driver who delivered the vehicle to my home. Thanks to everyone who helped to make my dream come true with total trust.
