Trans Am Update – New Headers – Cammed Lopey Idle and Rev

 

We just thought you might like to hear a clip of the Trans Am idling and revving. After Jordan’s accident, he had to replace the exhaust on the Trans Am. Now, the car has Hedman long tube headers, dual 3″ Hedman X-tension pipes, Jones Full Boar mufflers ( Flowmaster Super 10 copies), and 3″ turndowns. Overall, we’re pretty happy with the sound now. Jordan also put on a different hood since the last video. He still has some modifications to make to it, but it’ll work just fine. When the snow melts, we’ll get it out on the road and do a driving video. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am First Road Test

 

Jordan decided to take his Trans Am out for it’s first road test since the repairs. He was worried the the transmission might have been damaged when the flexplate came apart, but it seems to be good. He also repaired the oil pump pickup and the engine is showing great oil pressure. He’ll get it out for a better drive when the weather is a little nicer. The wet roads make things a little too exciting when you hammer into it. Obviously, he still needs to put the hood back on and get the rest of his exhaust hooked up. I’m sure he’ll have it all back together shortly. Thanks for watching!

Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Race Cars, and Classics – RamblinAround

This is a collection of awesome cars we’ve filmed over the past few years. Whether you’re into street rods, muscle cars, or nicely restored classics, we have you covered. We made sure we threw in plenty of burnouts, wheelies, and high speed flybys to keep things interesting. We hope you like it, thanks for taking a look!

We’d like to extend a special thank you to Tom Abbett, for helping us with a lot of the driving, and to Steve Dunsford, for providing us with his awesome camera skills.

These clips were filmed with the assistance of our great partners, Fast Lane Classic Cars, Gateway Classic Cars, Passing Lane Motors, and Gateway Motorsports Park.

RamblinAround – Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Race Cars, and Classics

This is just a short video I threw together for fun. It’s sort of a channel trailer I guess. I just put some interesting clips together from the past few years. We have driven some pretty awesome machines over the years and this is just a small sample. There are a couple of supercharged cars, one turbocharged monster, some drag cars, and more. Even tossed in a clip of Jordan doing some shooting with his Mossberg. Anyway, hopefully you find it interesting…thanks for watching!

JeffCo Power Tour at Manns Restoration in Festus, MO

For the first time, Manns Restoration was one of the stops on the JeffCo Power Tour. This was the fifth year for the event and they really had a great turnout. The lot quickly filled up with hot rods, muscle cars, and classics. With over 140 cars participating, it really was an impressive sight. Of course, Manns Restoration opened up their facility, so that everyone could check out their latest projects. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, despite the gloomy weather. Of course a few participants couldn’t resist laying down a little rubber on the way out. We don’t encourage that sort of thing…but we will film it. Hope you enjoy the video, thank you for watching!

1948 Fiat Topolino AA/A Alcohol Altered Supercharged Hemi Drag Car

I thought you might like a look at this wicked 1948 Fiat Topolino AA/A Altered Alcohol fueled vintage drag car. It’s powered by a massive Brad Anderson Enterprises (BAE) supercharged hemi, backed by a 3 spd manual trans. He had to lift during his run, so it didn’t run anywhere near it’s capability. It’s still awesome to see it in action. This car is owned by Rick Wilson, out of Missouri. I hope you found it interesting, thanks for watching!

Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Project – Built Small Block V8 Nitrous

I thought you might like to see the progress Jordan has made on his third gen Trans Am so far. He says he still has a long way to go, but it’s getting there. If any of you are new to our channel, this video should get you up to speed on the Trans Am project. As you can see in the video, Jordan is currently on engine number three and probably the fourth version of the exhaust. One thing that is undeniable, is that the performance has increased substantially with each engine swap. As he continues to get the setup fine-tuned, the car will only get faster. We still need to show you all a video of the car running on the bottle and that should be coming soon. I hope you find this interesting, we appreciate you watching!
