Trans Am First Drive After Wreck

The weather was a little better today, so Jordan decided to take the Trans Am for the first drive since his wreck. We really expected the car to be down for a lot longer, but Jordan put in some long hours to get it finished quick. He completed most of the bodywork, installed the new exhaust, repaired the transmission, and added some new wheel centers. The car is a long way from perfect, but Jordan says it will do until spring. When warmer weather gets here, he plans to swap on a different hood, finish the bodywork, and give it a fresh coat of paint. For now, he’s just happy to be driving it again. We thank you all for your comments and support, we appreciate it. 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!

800 HP 1970 Ford Mustang Fastback Boss 429 Tribute 545 Cubic Inch Ford Hemi V8

I thought you might like a look at this awesome 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Tribute, from Passing Lane Motors. This red fastback is powered by a 545 Cubic Inch Ford Shotgun Hemi V8, topped with Jon Kaase Aluminum heads and intake. This beast is pumping over 800 HP through the TKO600 five-speed, back to a 9 inch rear. It’s also equipped with Gateway Classic Mustang Suspension, Baer 4-piston calipers, 13″ drilled and slotted rotors, subframe connectors, custom 3 link suspension with Watts linkage, etc. This is about as nice as it gets. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

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!

Third Gen Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Burnouts Flyby high speed

Chevy Nova SS 327 V8 Open Headers Lopey Cam

While we were filming down at Manns Restoration the other day, Jordan heard this car fire up in the background. He thought you all might like to hear how it sounds. It’s powered by a 327 small block V8, with a pretty healthy cam in it. No fancy video stuff here, just one mean sounding American muscle car. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Pontiac Trans Am Flying Down the Backroads

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!

Epic Test Drives – Muscle Cars and Pony Cars

Special Thanks to Fast Lane Classic Cars for allowing us the use of their cars and to Tom Abbett for helping us out with the driving.

This is a Mega-video for sure. Nearly 15 minutes of awesome muscle cars and pony cars. Fords, Chevys, Buicks, Pontiacs, and Mopars… a little bit of everything in this one. No superchargers or turbos, just big ol’ American V8’s. There is a big 572 Hemi, some Wedge Mopars, Big-block Chevy’s of course, and even a Cleveland headed Ford Windsor. I don’t expect everyone will last the whole 15 minutes, but I do hope you find it interesting. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!
