Dan had previously owned a Red 1979 Formula from 1979 to 1985. In 2004, when he turned 50, he began searching for a similar car. He came across the Atlantis Blue 1979 Trans Am he now owns today on Ebay. He clicked "Buy It now" and had the car shipped from its home in Maine to Ohio. Brett Campbell helped him with much of the restoration work that needed done and since that time Dan has racked up about 50,000 miles on it.
