1978 Trans Am Stuck On The Ice 1/21/2012
Trying To Get Back Home After Ice Storm...I was doing my cousin a favor
this morning trying to take him to work.on my way to work. He was at my
moms house and it was actually about 5 miles down these backroads out of my
way and why everyone keeps saying i should not have been on the road and
cant drive blah blah blah.. my Wife and 2 kids 1 being new born was
stranded at Home with about 3inces of ice on the road and with power going
out through out the day because of ice on power lines..and have to have
power to heat house What would u do...
Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!

1978 Trans Am highway acceleration
1978 Trans Am 400 (180hp) accelerating from around 80 kph to somewhere
beyond 130kph after a kickdown to 2nd gear. Wide open throttle was fairly
brief, as the 400 is stronger at lower RPMs.
