The cockpit area of the car is rather lacking when compared to the Trans-Am cars competing today.

After nearly ten years, the Skanes had finally finished the resurrection of this classic piece of not just Trans-Am history, but, what should be considered, as a true example of the ingenuity, and technologies of the era. The elder Mr. Skane’s vision, was finally realized, the car received “Best of Show: Racing All Classes” at the 2009 Ault Park, Keenland, and Daytona Concours d Elegance. The car has also been given special recognition at the prestigious Amelia Island Concours d Elegance, and was used by Chrysler Corporation as a featured display vehicle at the 2008 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The official Trans-Am registry plate verifying the authenticity of the car is displayed under the hood.

Sadly, Mr. Skanes has passed, and today the car is administered, and maintained by son Bryan, and longtime family friend, Chris Brown. Bryan and Chris are doing their best to extend the legacy of their beloved father and friend by continuing to locate, restore, and resurrect classic examples of Mopar racing history. If the pending builds are anything close to this car, we can’t wait to see what the boys come up with next.
