    Fix it, man! That is one bad a$$ machine. Is it a Trans Am or a Formula? You said it has the ram-air hood, so I'm guessing it is a Formula. Man, if you weren't in Texas, I'd make an offer to buy the whole lot off of ya! Got any pictures?

    If the exhaust ports are rounds its a SD (super Duty). If they are d-port its either stock heads, or ram air III heads. What is the casting # on the heads? I can look them up and tell you.

    *Spoken like Homer Simpson* Mmmmmm, Super Duty.....

    Naw, man. No new pics of the 76. Haven't gotten to work on it much. It is at a friend's house and I never get over there. I'm gonna hopefully get it to my house soon. I've got all the parts to put it together, though. I'll take some better pics once I get the old snowflakes off and put the Torq-Thrusts on it.

    400 ram-air is still a good motor! I'd take one. Actually, there is not big-block or small-block Pontiac motors. They are all big blocks. A 400 Pontiac is still a darn good motor. My 76 Trans Am has a built 400 in it and I'm gonna drop a 400 in my 75 Firebird, too.

    Years ago I had a 73 Trans Am. 400 4spd and 4:10 gears.
    That baby would freakin fly.
    They were not foolin around when they put in a 160mph speedo.
    71 -73 are my favorite years.

    No they werent. I have burried my speedo in my 69 Firebird (160 mph) a few times when it had the stock rearend in it. It came with 2.56 gears since it was an AC car. well with 500+ hp its not hard to do over 160.
