Painting Pontiac Trans Am GunMetal Gray Plasti Dip

We recently installed a new front bumper cover and ground effects on my son’s 1987 Trans Am. After the repair, the car was red and black, with a white bumper…so we decided it was time to paint it. We’re not ready for a show quality paint job yet, so we decided to go with Plasti Dip. Jordan cleaned, prepped, and painted the car entire on his own. In this video, you can see that it really is coming along well. I really like the gunmetal gray color. He also decided to remove the door moldings for a more clean and custom look. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Two Burnouts 1987 Trans Am 357 V8 – Third Gen Pontiac Firebird TA Burnout

A bunch of you have been asking for us to do a burnout in the Trans Am for a while now. We just bought some new tires, so we decided this would be a good time to burn off the old ones. For those of you that are new to our channel, this is my son’s 1987 Pontiac Trans Am. We swapped in a 357 V8 topped with a Demon 4 BBL carb. The engine is backed by a 700r4 and it has a Borg Warner 9 bolt rear with 3:08 Gears. Thanks for taking a look!

1987 Trans Am Acceleration with Tach 5500 RPM Shifts – 357 V8 Demon Carb

This is just a quick little acceleration video in my son’s 1987 Pontiac Trans Am. It’s powered by a 357 small block V8, 4 BBL Demon Carb, 700r4 Trans with Shift kit, and an Australian 9 bolt rear with 3.08 Posi Gears. A set of 3.70 gears is the next change we’re going to make. It should make it quite a bit quicker. There’s a little wind noise because we had the T-tops out at the time. Thanks for taking a look!

Custom Supercharged 1987 Chevrolet S10 Lifted Show Truck

I thought you might like a look at this wild Chevy S10 4×4 Custom Show Truck. Countless hours of hard work and detailed craftsmanship was poured into creating this vehicle. The S10 is a one owner truck that had its own carpeted room for the last 20 years. Under the hood you will find the original 2.8L V6 engine and automatic transmission with just 30303 miles! Options include: AM/FM Radio, Cassette, Manual Sunroof, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Cloth Interior, and Bias Ply Tires. This truck is as clean as it was the day of manufacturing. Even the frame was painted and pin striped! If you haven’t had the chance to view the video of this truck please do so! The S10 has a Trail Master Lift and an automatic hydraulic bed which can be lifted from inside the cab. The interior is completely custom with gray and black cloth and brushed stainless steel inserts. The stainless steel inserts are found throughout the exterior as well as the underside of the truck bed. The windows of the truck are even etched! The following parts have chrome: shocks, leaf springs, torsion bars, drive shafts, roll cage, and inner fender wells. In effort to keep this truck clean, a custom California cover comes along with the vehicle. The 2.8L engine has a B&M super charger which helps move this monster truck around. The tires consist of massive 15-39.5-15 sizes. This is your chance to own a Master Champion custom show truck winner for about 1/4 of the money invested. Thanks for taking a look!

1987 Trans Am Project – First Test Drive with 357 V8

This our first video of the Trans Am in action after the engine swap. Obviously, the videos will be more interesting after we break the engine in a bit more. Right now, we are still adjusting and tuning things. After the engine has sufficient time to break in, we’ll show you what it can really do. Thanks for watching!

New Engine Installed – 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 7

This is part 7 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series.  We are in the process of switching from a 305 TPI to a 357 Carbed engine.  Since the last video, we have managed to get the new engine dropped into the car.  It’s fully mounted to the trans and we even installed the carb.  We’re running the new 625 cfm Street Demon carb on it, because we preferred some of it’s design features. By the next video, we should have the headers and exhaust installed and maybe have the fuel system set up. I hope you find these vids interesting….thanks for watching!
