1979 Macho Turbo TA # 22
79 Macho Turbo TA. This particular Trans Am started life as a heavily optioned car featuring the W72 400, WS6 suspension package and 4-speed transmission. It also received the full Macho treatment which included an HO Racing Turbo Charged 400 (1 of only 22 built in 1979), a Doug Nash 5-speed with short-shifter, oil pressure restorer, trunk mounted battery, Scheel 4015 bucket seats with matching rear seats, a lift-off fiberglass hood, power sliding sunroof, 160mph speed and 8k tach, and a Rockford Fosgate stereo system
Macho TA's are the only 70's version of the now famous dealer tuner cars of the 60's, Yenko, Berger, Baldwin Motion, Nicki, Royal Bobcat, Mr Norm, ect.

There were a few after the fact cars built that were not sold by mecham, they were customer cars done after the end of the production year. Examples are 78 # 203, 78# 204, and 79 #206. 205 is out there somewhere, I am unsure if its a 78 or a 79, but it would seem to be a 79.
