An American muscle car; the top model of the Pontiac Firebird, produced from 1969 'til 2002. Originally an appearance package for the Firebird 400. The next year, '70, it actually improved performance. One noteworthy T/A is the 1970 Ram Air V. It was a rare, dealer-installed option that took the RA-IV engine, and added solid lifters and tunnel port heads. They were rated at 500bhp, a 130hp improvement from the RA-IV. Also noteworthy is the '73 T/A. it was the first to feature a large "Screaming Chicken" graphic on the hood. The top engine, a 310hp (net) 455ci Super-Duty V8 got the T/A going pretty fast. The T/A, and its sister, the Camaro, were killed off in '02. Thanks alot, ricer geeks! It I wanted to hot-rod a mini-van, I'd at least make it look decent!
A dude in a green Civic pulled up to me and said he wanted to race. i asked him, "what kind of mods do you have?" He replies, "a spoiler, pimped-out rims, a subwoofer in the trunk, and a cold air intake system." He asked me the same, and I said, "nothing. Just a stock, 415hp 400 cube Ram Air V8." He may have beat me off the line, but I won the race by a long-shot.
