Default Hot blue Pontiac Transam in Mumbai!

Guys, just saw a hot blue Pontiac Transam at Choksey. It was parked outside on the road. Couldn't get the pics as traffic was moving. Will definately click the pics tomorrow. It was an absolute stunner.

was a 90's model with a black T top. if it was then the car was imported with the red pontiac convertible. it belonged to a prominent person and has been on sale for a long time. it has an auto gearbox if i am not mistaken. had seen the car with the owner and when it was standing at a certain petrol pump. the guy was asking a ridiculous price for it.
was it like this car

yes so it is the same car i am talking about. the owners family has a few other cars fancy cars also. this car has been on sale for many years now. i wonder how much it being quoted for now. the car is a looker alright and due to the electric blue and different wheels looks more muscular and sporty.

Yup, seen this car a lot of times. There is a red one too. Not sure if its the same one painted blue.

There is already a topic existing. The red one is posted there.

no gordon the blue has always been blue. the red convertible and the blue T top belonged to the same owners family, till they were sold to make way for bigger cars. the red one posted by V12 is a different car. and the 70's firebird is jackie shroffs car and was featured in the papers also a few years ago.

Forgot to mention that the blue Transam has suspension problems i think. Have a pic of it but cant post it due to privacy reasons. The rear right wheel had moved right up into the wheel well and the rear right tail lights were missing.

Rajiv Shah owned a red Pontiac Firebird which was featured in one of the BSM issues. Here's the Firebird spotted at Phoenix Mills and in Bandra:

rajiv and his ajay owned both, the red convertible and the blue pontiac. yes dippy had mentioned about the suspension issue and it is true. ajay had hit a curb hard and hence the problem. there was no other issue on the car and the lights were never missing from the car. they might have been removed to solve the problem. rajiv sold the convertible to his then friend and partner of his club. the blue one unfortunately did not have luck. both the brothers moved up the ladder and brought the viper and ajay since he does not live here through out brought in the diablo on carnet.
the other red pontiac is another car not the same blue one painted.

There was a blue one in Chembur, owned by a young guy, a shoes exporter. This was around in 2003. Dont know if he still has it though.
