Not that I don't like modern, but I will always be a muscle car guy 1st. I had a 78 Trans Am, with a 1970 Ram Air III 400 engine, about 370HP. 3:73 Posi, Built TH350, all adjustable suspension, Koni Shocks. All black, not a spec of chrome or any badges, just the red Pontiac emblem on the nose. Very fast, but also ran autocross for a while. But everyone had B210's, and Mazda RX's and my car was probably 4,000 lbs. I held my own against those little cars, and obviously would have trounced them in a race
I live in CA, and although my mods were grandfathered in, when smog testing started, I had my car certified, they even attached a badge, but every other year it was always a hastle getting my smog certificate. I finally sold it to some 20 something who just about had an orgasm when I took him on a test drive. I bought a new car with Airbags and Antilock brakes, etc. Wished I had room to keep the T/A. Last time I saw it it was all beat up with body damage...oh well, he bought it.
