Trans Ams!

Hello everybody, after months of searching I've finally got one of my dream cars. A beautiful red '97 Pontiac Trans Am. LT1 v8, 6 speed manual. Low mileage too! It was just about to roll over to 50k when I got home with it. It had been sitting for a while before I bought it so it's covered in tree sap at the moment, but I will have pictures up soon!
(If anyone has any tips for getting tree sap off easily, feel free to comment and let me know!)

  1. The only way I got tree sap off my car was to have my neighbor cut down the tree. And then I moved, lol. Honestly, I just moved my car away from the tree.

  3. I think they sell some solution for it. just go shopping near the car wash section.

  4. This is what Google did for me. To remove the tree sap from your vehicle's surface, you can use finger nail polish remover on a cotton ball. After the sap is removed, make a paste of water and baking soda to wash the affected area, then apply wax. That's awesome though, congrats!

  11. A little bit of diluted rubbing alcohol (tested on an inconspicuous part of your car first!) does the trick for me.

  13. tree saps the worst. However, goo-gone works wonders, as will anything else made to remove sugar
