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!

Ferrari 550 Maranello V12 Roaring Through the Country

It was a beautiful day for a drive, so we decide to take the Ferrari 550 Maranello and find some country roads. The crew at Manns Restoration just finished some repairs on the car and it was time for a good road test. The 550 is powered by 65 degree V12 with four valves per cylinder, that cranks out around 480 horsepower. It will power the car to a top speed of right at 200 mph and it makes some glorious noises while doing so. This is an amazing touring car, that flies through sweeping curves with ease. We hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Barn Find Polaris Project – Part 3 – Machining the Head & New Plastics

This is Part 3 in our Polaris Barn Find series. In this video, we show some of the freshly painted parts, test the compression, machine the head, and then show the plastics that will be going on next. If all goes well, we should have the Polaris completely back together for the next video. Then we’ll get to start having some fun with it.

Barn Find Polaris Project – Part Two – Clean up and Tear Down

Just wanted to give you a quick update on the Polaris project. As you can see in the video, we cleaned it up a bit and began tearing it down. We removed the snow plow, took off the plastics, and worked our way down to the engine. Next, we’ll throw on a new head gasket, swap the carb, get the exhaust how we want it, and then install the new plastics. We’re already getting anxious to see how it turns out. We hope you find our little “sleeper” project interesting too. Thanks for watching!

Car Cruise at Passing Lane Motors – Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, and Classics

Passing Lane Motors held their 2nd Annual Car Cruise In this Saturday, July 18th, and it really was a great time. Tons of awesome hot rods, street rods, muscle cars, classics, and even some modern muscle. They definitely had a little bit of everything. Poor Richards brought in some great food and there were ice cold drinks at the bar. Everyone was really having a blast. We tried to include as many cars in the video as possible. If we missed you, we’ll try to make it up to you next time. Also, we may have some more videos from this event in the days ahead. We just wanted to get this big mega video out as quickly as possible. Thanks for watching!

Pontiac Trans Am Burnouts – Lopey Cammed V8

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!
