Trans Am Update & Open Headers Road Test

 

It was a nice day out, so we decided to take the Trans Am for a little road test. Jordan is still waiting on some parts, but he cobbled things together just so he could drive it. The acceleration run at the beginning was with a shorty header on one side and a long tube on the other. With open headers, the size difference left to right didn’t seem to effect it any. Hopefully you find this interesting, we thought it was time for an update. Thanks for watching!

Test Driving 575 HP 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4891

Thought you might like a look at this awesome 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4891 continuation model, built by Shelby American. This Cobra is powered by a 575 HP 427 Ford side-oiler V8, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It’s even riding on the correct Goodyear bias-ply, big-lettered race tires.

Awesome Test Drives of American Horsepower

This is a compilation of some of the awesome cars we’ve test driven over the past couple of years. Some supercharged, some turbocharged, and some just pure all-motor horsepower…no real rhyme or reason to the selections. Just killing some time while we’re kind of snowed in here. Hope you like it, thanks for watching!

Test Driving 2007 Shelby GT500 Super Snake Convertible 635 HP

I thought you’d like a look at this awesome 2007 Shelby GT500 Super Snake. It’s powered by a Supercharged 5.4 DOHC V8, pumping out 635 Horsepower. All that power is being sent through a six-speed manual trans with a short throw shifter. This extremely rare car only has about 790 miles on it and it still looks brand new. It also has the Ford Racing exhaust, performance suspension, huge brakes, and 20″ Forged aluminum rims. This car really does everything well. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
