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!
About “Bird Bites”
Long story. Bought it in 1986,when it was 4 years old. Its Now 2011 (im gettin old)...and the car is 29 yrs old now. So i guess this is my 25th year.
I bought it from my girlfriends Mom . Mom never went over 75 mph :).
In the 70s President Jimmy Carter slaped a mandate on the Auto industry to up the Milage on their entire Fleet by 1982.(This car, the 1982 TransAm was the Very First Car General Motors designed.. IN... a windtunnel) Giving us a brilliant orchestration of aerodynamic function. Its .34 drag coefficient is the best of any production car GM has ever tested, up untill that date.Thus the severe Windshield Slants Started.The aerodynamics got better ..and look around you on the roads today...with all these windtunnel births
So 1982 the T/A lost over 500lbs from the prior year 1981.And you begin to notice a lot of plastic,Smaller engines, Less HP,and of course :) Slanted windshields.The Max Hp you could get was 165 Hp in the 82 Trans Am. And that is NOT what this .. ICON..... deserves. Sooo we took care of that.
With the help of Bill, and Lon Moyer of Second Street Speed of Sellersville P.A We Cut, Clawed, formed,framed and fabricated the under carriage with true dual 3 inch Oval exhaust and put the Bite, back in this BIRD . Bill and Lon are well known on the East Coast, in the Drag Industry for their Stout Motors.Lon recently Working in R&D for Nascar's...Hendricks MotorSports,Built this Motor.
