Trans Am First Road Test

 

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!

Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Race Cars, and Classics – RamblinAround

This is a collection of awesome cars we’ve filmed over the past few years. Whether you’re into street rods, muscle cars, or nicely restored classics, we have you covered. We made sure we threw in plenty of burnouts, wheelies, and high speed flybys to keep things interesting. We hope you like it, thanks for taking a look!

We’d like to extend a special thank you to Tom Abbett, for helping us with a lot of the driving, and to Steve Dunsford, for providing us with his awesome camera skills.

These clips were filmed with the assistance of our great partners, Fast Lane Classic Cars, Gateway Classic Cars, Passing Lane Motors, and Gateway Motorsports Park.

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!

Pontiac Trans Am Burnout and High-speed Flybys

Jordan switched out the glasspack mufflers, for some Cherry Bomb Extremes yesterday. He decided to take it out for a little spin and see how it sounds. We figured we’d shoot an idle clip, a burnout, and some high-speed flybys… so you could get a good idea of the overall sound. We hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Project – Built Small Block V8 Nitrous

I thought you might like to see the progress Jordan has made on his third gen Trans Am so far. He says he still has a long way to go, but it’s getting there. If any of you are new to our channel, this video should get you up to speed on the Trans Am project. As you can see in the video, Jordan is currently on engine number three and probably the fourth version of the exhaust. One thing that is undeniable, is that the performance has increased substantially with each engine swap. As he continues to get the setup fine-tuned, the car will only get faster. We still need to show you all a video of the car running on the bottle and that should be coming soon. I hope you find this interesting, we appreciate you watching!

Vintage Indy Car Racing Action at Gateway Motorsports Park

I thought you might like a look at these awesome vintage Indy cars. They all get together and drive these cars, instead of letting them languish in museums. They had everything from flatheads, to normally aspirated V8’s, to Turbo Four Cam Fords. It’s just to get a glimpse at the past and hear these awesome machines roar around the track again. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
