If your Radwood tastes skew a little on the older side, I'd like to present you with this 1980 Pontiac Trans Am. Adding to the allure, it's one of 5,700 Indy Pace Car editions sold that year.
This was not the best Trans Am that Pontiac ever built. In fact, depending on who you ask, it might actually be the worst. The era of big cubic inches was over – the last of the 6.6-liters was sold in 1979 – but Pontiac still wanted its halo muscle car to have some guts. It didn't, really, but let's just sit back and appreciate the effort.
There are 301 cubic inches under the hood, bolstered by Pontiac's first turbocharged engine, sending 210 horsepower and 345 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels.
But much more importantly, it had a sweet Screaming Chicken graphic on the hood wrapped around an asymmetrical bulge that lit up in the driver's direct line of sight as the turbo boost built up. That's cool. The whole thing is so quintessentially '80s that the Radwood crowd will love it. – Consumer Editor Jeremy Korzeniewski
