I was a part of the import craze, and
had big plans for my little 4 banger.
Then I ran into a mechanic that
laughed at me for building a 4
cylinder motor. He then took me for a
ride in his 1996 Trans Am. I then
realized that torque is my friend. If
you like torque, this is the car for
you! The feeling of having sticky
tires break loose on a hot day at your
own will is something that isn't
accomplished by the sub-par Ford
counterparts. I love the car in every
way, and will take it for a cruise
just for fun. These cars look great
and perform to match it straight from
These cars a very intimidating. Do
not get one if you are affraid of
quick acceleration! I have taken many
people for rides, and the most common
comment is "I thought the front end
was just going to lift off the ground!"
The Optispark unit likes water as much
as a vampire likes the sun, and then
be prepared to pay $500 for the part
from your local GM dealer. Other than
that the only real weak point on the
car is the stock 10 bolt, but that's
fine as long as you don't go
nuts with power adders.
