I am running one on my 351 Cleve in the GT. They are brilliant. Get the matching coil from pertronix too.

Re: 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo

I think autostyle sell a lettering pen, but I have never used one.

BF Goodrich sell white letter types, and I have seen goodyear eagles on cobras.

Seen plenty tow trucks around with those " Hercules " tires on too
