Jim & Darla Brink's ’72 Trans-Bird

One Man's Version Of The Ultimate Cruiser

Photography by

Take one Firebird, several junked Trans Ams and close the garage doors. One year and 11 months later...out pops a beautiful Trans-Bird! Meet Jim and Darla Brink, the pair of Minnesota car junkies who transformed this little birdie into the killer street machine it is today. If you’re wondering why such a hybrid evolved, it’s because Jim wanted to build his version of the “Ultimate Cruiser.” Jim, a Trans Am–lover since day one, wanted the advantage of modern-day components and no worries about reliability. But rather than deface an original TA with modifications, he opted to use a ’72 Firebird shell and convert it to the ride of his dreams.
