"Ruby Fire" Trans Am (1977) - John Wargo

“This car is five months in the making. The customer really let us get creative, which helps when you’re digging into a custom job and trying to make it unique.”

The Custom Shop

Getting the hang of this blog layout and testing with this post. I figured I would share one of our favorite builds from the SEMA show that was hosted in Las Vegas the beginning of November.

We are based on the East Coast of the U.S. and we made the trip out to Vegas on Monday evening and stayed the week through Saturday evening. If you have never had a chance to attend SEMA, we highly recommend it. Some great builds, manufacture products and it's just a fun time!

OK enough about the boring stuff, on to the car. What caught my attention about this ride is the styling, the stance, the custom ruby red quad coat paint, custom ZR1 window in a Shaker hood and the custom ground effects. It all just popped.

An old school meets new school flavor, all very over the top as well as it should be for a show piece. One of the things you look for in a show vehicle is a well-rounded build, interior, paint and body, engine / performance and just the over-all flow and execution of the build.
