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 decided to take his Trans Am out for it’s first road test since the repairs. He was worried the the transmission might have been damaged when the flexplate came apart, but it seems to be good. He also repaired the oil pump pickup and the engine is showing great oil pressure. He’ll get it out for a better drive when the weather is a little nicer. The wet roads make things a little too exciting when you hammer into it. Obviously, he still needs to put the hood back on and get the rest of his exhaust hooked up. I’m sure he’ll have it all back together shortly. Thanks for watching!
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!
We thought you might like to see some of the awesome drag racing that goes on at Gateway Motorsports Park. Tons of nitrous injected big-block V8 power on display. The massive burnouts alone are pretty awesome to see. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
Filmed at Gateway Motorsports Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO.

This is just a short clip of a dirt track race car out on the street. They were having some issues with it, so he took it out for a test drive. It wasn’t running great, but it still sounds pretty wicked. Hope you find it interesting!
