About “The General”

Full bolt on and cammed 2000 6 speed trans am. 50k miles 2nd owner... car was tunned by east side perforance in CT and put down 421rwhp on a conservative tune. Car will be re tuned spring 2008 by New Era in Rochester NY, hopefully after the addition of ported LS6 heads.

About “Blue Streak”

Basically I bought this car off of an middle aged guy this summer. He bought it brand new and when I bought it from him it had just over 8,000 miles on it. Right now it has just slightly more miles on it than when I bought it because due to me being at college I decided not to insure it until this upcoming spring (decided to save some insurance money). It has a few simple mods, but for the most part I plan on keeping it original since it is the 40th anniversary edition and a mach 1. So that pretty well sums it up and if you want to know more, or if you want to see more pics just check out my cardomain website.
