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 “TTA830”

The Turbo Trans Am.. fastest production Trans Am ever built! Powered by a Buick Turbo 6 (Grand National Motor) and designed to look like any other GTA... until the light turns green.
Only 1,555 were built and there were no options- all were loaded...and a $31,245 in 1989 they better be, For the same money you could have bought TWO 5.0 liter Mustangs. this is car number 830... and with only 11,500 original miles,

3.8 liter Buick V6 ,Turbocharged & intercooled, produces 255 bph, 10 more bph than the equivelant engine in the Grand National. 0-60 5.5 sec, 1/4 mile 13.5 sec (bone stock). 700R4 4 speed auto was the only transmission offered in these cars.
GM grossly understated he horsepower so thier Corvette would not lose its position as the top performer (on paper). There were also lots of color choices.. as long as it was white and camel interior.
