The weather was great, so Jordan decided to take the Trans Am for a little spin…and a couple burnouts. He’s about to buy some new tires, so he wasn’t too worried about laying down some rubber. He also made a cardboard stencil and sprayed the Goodyear lettering on his tires, just to see what it would look like. He figured it was a good time to try it, since he’ll be done with these tires soon. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Third Gen Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Burnouts Flyby high speed
The weather was good today, so Jordan and I decided to take the Trans Am for a little spin. No nitrous in this one, just launching on the motor. We’ll have a big burnout vid coming soon. Thought you might like to go along for the ride. Thanks for watching!
I thought you might like a look at this super nice 1980 GMC Pickup. This one is particularly unique, due to the fact that it’s powered by a Mondello built 455 Olds V8. Definitely not something you see every day…and it sounds awesome. This hot rod was built using a very well-kept, low mileage truck. It features super slick red paint, leather seats, a Hurst Shifter, and even Air Conditioning. This one is ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
I thought you might like a look at this freshly restored 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS. It’s powered by the numbers matching 402 Big-block, that has been freshly rebuilt. While they had it apart, they tossed in a .604 Lift roller cam and added some Doug’s ceramic coated headers. All that power is being sent through a Turbo 400 automatic, back to a 12 bolt rear with 3.55 gears and Posi. It’s painted in the correct Cranberry Red and features a black vinyl top and interior. Up front, they added some SSBC disc brakes, with slotted rotors and aluminum twin-piston calipers. This car is ready to hit the road, with only 2200 miles since completion. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
Jordan decided to take the Trans Am out for a little road test today. He is still trying to keep the RPM’s to a reasonable level and not spin it too hard yet. He has put quite a few break-in miles on it so far though, and it seems to be doing well. We hope you find this interesting, we’ll have many more to come. Thanks for watching!
It’ll be a little while before we can really see what it’s got, but it sure sounds mean. The cam break-in sure was nerve racking. We’re sure glad to have that part over with and hopefully things go smoothly from here on out. We still have a lot of tuning to do on the car, but I know a bunch of you were waiting to hear it run. The idle on that Howards cam definitely sounds plenty healthy. From the little bit of accelerating we did from 2500 RPM to 4200 RPM, it feels like it’s going to be a strong runner. We’re going to take it easy for a bit though and break it in well. Thanks for watching, we’ll have more updates coming soon!
