My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way wants a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am...and he wants it now!

Posted on


Gerardway_lMy Chemical Romance’s lead singer has been broadcasting his desire to own a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am on Twitter and on the band’s website. Frontman Gerard Way says he needs the car for “research and exploration.” Requirements? “First and foremost, I want a good car,” Way wrote. “It doesn’t have to be great, itdoesn’t need to have been kept in an airtight garage for 30 years, butI would prefer something that’s not a piece of s—. I would like it tobe in California, close to or within the greater Los Angeles area. Iwould also like ‘the fast engine’ to show you how much I know aboutcars, though I have friends with vast automotive knowledge, and myfather was a mechanic when I was a child.” He also lists the exterior colors he desires (in order of awesome), adding, “I am open to other things but I absolutely do not want Gold, Brown, orthat frigging Smokey and The Bandit car- that s— is whack.”

So what do you think of Way’s appeal? Anyone out there willing to sell Gerard your 1979 Pontiac Trans Am?
