Some friends have asked me to pick my favorite car. This is easy, even though I’ve Hot Rodded everything I’ve ever touched, even the ones I shouldn’t have, my choice is my 87 Pontiac.
More correctly it is an 1987 Trans Am GTA, Pro Touring suspension, 1820hp Gasoline 427″ BBC, Twin Turbos w/dual blow thru 4500 Holleys, liquid coupled intercooling with belt drive pump, Richmond 6 speed, tail stock quick change, 9.5″ NASCAR axle, Koni adjustable coil over shocks, Eibach springs, power windows, tilt wheel, surround sound. Shown here with Bonneville Tires fitted. It looks exactly like this today. It ran a best of 283 mph at Bonneville in 1987.
It was the fastest street car on the planet for more than 10 years.
This is my favorite car because with its aero numbers, the new Centerline Series turbos we’re tooling and our upcoming AutoMind Gasoline Engine Control Unit, we have more to work with today. Using that I estimate that there’s an easy 320 to 330 mile in this car.
