This is a compilation of some of the recent builds from Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. We featured the 720+ horsepower Chevelle convertible, the LS3 powered 64 C10 pickup, the supercharged 6.1 Hemi powered Orangasm Cuda, and a beautiful V12 powered Ferrari 550 Maranello. The skilled crew at Manns can handle any restoration that comes their way. We hope you find them interesting, thank you for watching!

We thought you might like a look at this 1969 Jaguar E-type, that is currently being restored at Manns Restoration, in Festus, MO. It’s powered by the DOHC 4.2 Inline Six, equipped with triple SU carbs. The exhaust gases are expelled through a beautiful set of split headers, then back through the full dual exhaust. It has been upgraded to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission for better performance, highway cruising, and fuel economy. This car is also equipped with Jaguar’s fully independent rear suspension, so it should handle like it’s on rails. It’s going to be a beautiful car when it’s completed. We’ll come back and give you another look when it’s ready to hit the road.
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!
We thought you might like a look at this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am from Manns Restoration. It’s powered by the original 400 V8, that has been bored and stroked to 455 cubic inches. It also features the shaker hood, t-tops, and snowflake wheels. They still have a few bits of trim left to install, but it’s getting really close to completion. In this video, we mostly wanted to give you a look at the stereo setup. It allows you to sync up with modern devices, but still retain the appearance of the factory stereo. It’s definitely a cool piece of equipment. Hopefully you find this interesting, we appreciate you watching. We’ll try to come back with another video when the car is fully completed.
The background track is “Ten Million Slaves”, by Otis Taylor. It’s off his 2002 album, “Respect the Dead”. This video is not monetized, nor do we claim any rights to the song.
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!
Jordan had an unfortunate incident in the Trans Am last night. The car is a little banged up, but I’m just happy he’s ok. As you can see in the thumbnail, the exhaust got folded up like an accordion. Somebody had dropped a barbecue grill in the middle of the road, right after a curve. There wasn’t anything he could do to avoid it and he ended up flying off the road backwards. He’s very lucky that it wasn’t worse. The Trans Am and Jordan both will live to fight another day. Thanks for watching.
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!
