Ahh....It IS my T/A.
If you mean how does it compare to my immaculate Blue Formula, well it would be close but the Formula aka Max is so much tighter, handles waaaay better and feels quicker.
The T/A aka Black Betty is loud and rough, besides the crap paint job.

As much as my kid thinks it'* his car, it isn't and won't be for at least 2 years as long as he keeps up his A grades. That'* if his sister doesn't steal it first....but her C grades just won't cut it.

She'* away right now at summer camp.....Army Boot camp That'* what poor grades and rebellion gets you

My wife and I are enjoying going out for topless rides to cool off with wind in our hair. :P
Sure attracts attention.....and we set off two car alarms today.
I wish I had one. I would like to set off car alarms.

Bonne is all spiffed up and ready to roll for the Westcoast Bonne Meet next weekend, so we've been having fun driving Betty aka Smokey aka Bandit for the last few days. The sound of that V8 is sooooo nice. :P
Set off another car alarm today. Parked beside a Grand Am and as soon as I started it up....Honk..Honk...Honk....Honk...it'* almost annoying.

I have the drag radials on it. The same ones I used to race with in my other Firebird. Those meats are so sticky it'* almost impossible to spin them, even with all this power. Neck snapping acceleration. :P

Whoa...Black Betty... Bam-ba-Lam

I still think it would be cool to set off car alarms.

You could set off alarms with your SSEi.

Just get a set of 12" subs and drive around with the trunk open.
