1969 Jaguar E-type Roadster Update – Manns Restoration

 

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.

1981 Pontiac Trans Am 400 V8 Four-Speed 400 Horsepower

I thought you’d like a look at this nicely restored 1981 Pontiac Trans Am. It has a rebuilt 400 with a ton of aftermarket parts, that is pushing out around 400 HP.  All that power is funneled through a four-speed manual trans to a posi rear.  This car is ultra clean, both inside and out. It really is a nice example of a second generation F-body. I hope you find it interesting….thanks for watching!
