Never lost a race yet. Beat Camaros, 77 Trans Ams, Turbo Civics, 68 Corvette, Mustangs. Took my dad for a ride in it a while back, he has a 2000 Trans Am WS6 Ram Air 375 hp 6 speed manual, asked him what he thought, all he said "Faster than mine." My mom has 1991 GTA (Grand Trans Am) and she says mine scares her.
Don't get me wrong, I have mad respect for every kind of Muscle Car. I'm just a TA kind of guy. My cousin has a 2008 Mustang GT, pulled the motor and put in the better truck motor and threw on some twin turbos. My god that car is fast. 1100 horsepower will make you need to change your pants...

Here's what I got..

1984 Trans Am (Fully loaded options)
357 c.i. 350 Horsepower 375 lb ft Torque and 8 mpg
1988 350 Truck Block bored .040 over

2.73 Ratio Rear End (Stock)
4-Bolt mains

Speed Demon 750 cfm Carb
Holley 110 GPH Fuel Pump
ProForm 50,000 volt distributor
Wolverine Mild Camshaft
Hooker Shorty Headers
Flowmaster Exhaust w/ Cut-Out

Next up:
