    Huge Find: Very First 1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Ever Made

    How did Kevin and his business partner (and cousin) Don Emery score this very special Trans Am? It all started with an ad that is featured in every Ames catalog and on its website: "Wanted: Low Mileage Low Production Cars." One day Kevin received a call from a Don Larsen of Victorville, California. Don mentioned that he had a car that Ames might be interested in and said it was possibly the first production 1969 Trans Am ever built. "Don was thinking retirement and figured it was time to sell the TA," says Kevin.

    That's a pretty bold claim to make, but Don had the necessary paperwork to back it up. The documents showed that it was the first TA produced at the Van Nuys plant, but Kevin wanted to see if it was actually the first Trans Am produced overall. Knowing that Norwood also produced 1969 TAs, it became a matter of finding out which plant built theirs first. He was still very interested in purchasing the car, as long as it was the first TA produced overall by Pontiac.
