About “a touch of evil”

has a built 305 4 barrel. cammed and bored out. dual flowmasters. lowered 1 and half inches.
the carb is a 750cfm holley 4 barrel
this car has a very angry rumble and growl to it.
This car was yet another i didnt intend to buy but when we went to look at it and the garage door hummed and opened up ever so slowly...i had to have it.
The car doesnt look like any 3rd gen trans am i have ever seen and when you get it out and hit the streets its like a 3rd gen on steroids!!!
but the main thing that sold this for me was a nerdy gizmo....
yes it has the knight rider red lights in the nostrils and has speakers under the hood also behind the red lights is another set of foglights also controlled by a switch.
you can attach your i-pod inside and whatever you play(knight rider effects on repeat) comes out the speakers in the hood!!!
yes...nerdy but i like it.
I picked touch of evil after the judas priest song!
