About “1 wild truck”

i bought this truck seven yrs ago was a drag truck at one time still have the same motor that in it that i run today sometimes it scares me when i have the urge to get on it.

About “Bandit LG4/WS6 SE”

I purchased this car in 1989 for 2 grand. I have spent about 10 grand restoring it - engine rebuilt, painted it myself and had a local graphics shop put the decals on. Emissions free, hooker headers with flowmasters and a we made the hood scoop functional - kick-ass car! One of 463 SE's made with the Chevy 305 that year and we bored it up and put a higher lift cam in it when the engine overhaul was done. It is a garage queen and only comes out when I can take the tops off!

Specs for “Bandit LG4/WS6 SE”

305 C.I.D. bored up
Top Speed: I dont know - it keeps pegging on me, Pontiac only had the speedometer go to 90, but it has been well over that.

When I purchased the car it was running on six cylinders. Since then I maxed the engine out and found out that they made only 463 SE's with the Chevy Motor. It has a stock stereo in it sort of, it actually is a re-manufactured stereo that looks just like the stock one which I still have. When you turn it on, the antenna goes up and you get a digital display. It has a 12 disc changer in the trunk, along with soundstream and rockford fosgate amps in the back supporting 1000 watts thru a bass tube - all in the trunk with the original small stock spare tire, jack, attached to the bottom of the trunk lid etc.. In the glove box is where it is really fun - a bass tuner, plus an ipod jack and a computer port, plus a usb hub. So essentially I can have internet access on my net-book which is kept in the trunk anywhere I need it.

I have before and after photos in my photo albums and a similar car mint went for 72K at Barrett Jackson's auction last spring. It's insured actual value is set at $45,000 and the restoration is still ongoing, minor things - carpet, polishing the wheels etc... It is now classified as a "special interest" car because of the Bandit SE designation and design - so I don't have a lot of competition,, there are just not that many out there anymore!
