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

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!

Test Driving 575 HP 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4891

Thought you might like a look at this awesome 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX4891 continuation model, built by Shelby American. This Cobra is powered by a 575 HP 427 Ford side-oiler V8, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It’s even riding on the correct Goodyear bias-ply, big-lettered race tires. This is one awesome beast, with more than enough power. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Test Driving 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 V8

We took this really clean 1968 Pontiac Firebird for a spin a while back, thought you might like a look. It’s the original, numbers matching 400 V8 4 BBL under the hood, with 330 HP and 430 Lb-ft of Torque. As you can see, it’s a strong runner. Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks to Fast Lane Classic Cars for allowing us the use of their car and to our friend, Tom Abbett, for doing the driving.

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!

Awesome Test Drives of American Horsepower

This is a compilation of some of the awesome cars we’ve test driven over the past couple of years. Some supercharged, some turbocharged, and some just pure all-motor horsepower…no real rhyme or reason to the selections. Just killing some time while we’re kind of snowed in here. Hope you like it, thanks for watching!

Trans Am Acceleration Runs

The roads finally were clear enough for us to get my son’s 1987 Trans am out today. We decided to hook up the GoPro and do a few short acceleration runs for you. It was about 10 degrees outside, so we didn’t do any outside shots. As soon as it warms up, we’ll have a full update video and show some of the modifications we’ve made recently. We may even let you in on what we plan to do next. I hope you find this interesting, thanks for taking a look.

For those of you that are interested in the setup. It’s a 1987 Trans Am and we’ve swapped in a 357 small block V8 (.040 over 350), topped with an Edelbrock Performer intake and a 625 cfm Street Demon carb. It has shorty headers, a flowmaster Y-pipe, and a single 3″ Inlet Cherry Bomb Extreme Muffler, with dual 2.5 inch outlets. The power is going through a beefed up 700r4 with a shift kit and TCI servo, through an aluminum driveshaft, to a Borg Warner 9 bolt rear, with 3.70 Posi gears. It also has subframe connectors, boxed lower control arms, and lakewood drag shocks. The engine is fairly mild right now (low 300 HP range), but that will be changing shortly.
