new 2010/11 Trans Am
Got my new issue of High Performance Pontiac in the mail yesterday. There is a new aftermarket company in the 5th gen Trans Am race called Gearhead Street Customs (GSC) and they have in my opinion the best interpretation of the new Bird. The ASC, Phoenix TA, and Lingenfelter TA's all looked good, but I think this GSC one does the old bird the most justice.
Buy the October 2010 issue or go to their website and see for yourself. From what I got out of the article, you can get it with just the exterior and interior mods with the stock 426hp motor, can get a maggy making 546 hp, a rear mounted turbo up to 700 hp, or a twin turbo setup putting out 900 hp. Prices start at $54,900.
This was the first article I've seen where they actually drive the car around town and take it to the strip/road course to see how it performed. Every other article I've read just had the cars sitting there with photographers doing their thing.
