hawt, those are badass... though for me i'd have to have one with a big block, those early turbo systems are pretty weaksauce and the V8 rumble complements its image

Man, I love those cars. I own a muhstang myself and I really like it. So any plans? You going to supercharge or anything? Man that must drive like a dream. That interior looks so luxurious, is that leather?

yep, its a 1980 trans am special edition with the uber rare t top delete option. makes it one of only about 200 ever made. god only knows how many still on the road. not very many i would imagine. 4.9 v8 with a garrett air research t series turbo, rated at 210 hp. made the quarter mile in 16 sumthin, not very quick by todays standards but back in 1980 not to shabby. and its only got 47,900 original miles...

I'm generally not excited about those things, but that is an awesome find! I've never seen one so clean. Sure the power output is kinda shitty stock, but I an EFI upgrade and a standalone would allow you to milk a considerable number of ponies out of it. :)

Put NOTHING in it!
It's a rare car, and I think that you know it's better off left as stock as possible.
