This 1958 Oldsmobile 88 sedan was recently restored by our friends at Manns Restoration in Festus, MO.  It was a nice day, so we decided to take it for a little drive.  We’ll have a video coming soon.

1978 Trans Am 455 V8 Start up and Restoration Update

 

We thought you might like a look at this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am from Manns Restoration. It’s powered by the original 400 V8, that has been bored and stroked to 455 cubic inches. It also features the shaker hood, t-tops, and snowflake wheels. They still have a few bits of trim left to install, but it’s getting really close to completion. In this video, we mostly wanted to give you a look at the stereo setup. It allows you to sync up with modern devices, but still retain the appearance of the factory stereo. It’s definitely a cool piece of equipment. Hopefully you find this interesting, we appreciate you watching. We’ll try to come back with another video when the car is fully completed.

The background track is “Ten Million Slaves”, by Otis Taylor. It’s off his 2002 album, “Respect the Dead”. This video is not monetized, nor do we claim any rights to the song.

Chevrolet 6400 Farm Truck at Manns Restoration

 

This old Chevrolet 6400 stake side farm truck is sitting out behind the shop at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. They acquired the truck a while back and they have plans of making it into a shop truck. There have been discussions about possible putting a more modern chassis underneath it, or possible even making it into more of a suburban style vehicle. It will be a while before this project actually gets underway, but I thought the truck was worth checking out. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Trans Am Wrecked by BBQ Grill

 

Jordan had an unfortunate incident in the Trans Am last night. The car is a little banged up, but I’m just happy he’s ok. As you can see in the thumbnail, the exhaust got folded up like an accordion. Somebody had dropped a barbecue grill in the middle of the road, right after a curve. There wasn’t anything he could do to avoid it and he ended up flying off the road backwards. He’s very lucky that it wasn’t worse. The Trans Am and Jordan both will live to fight another day. Thanks for watching.
