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!

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

This is just a short video I threw together for fun. It’s sort of a channel trailer I guess. I just put some interesting clips together from the past few years. We have driven some pretty awesome machines over the years and this is just a small sample. There are a couple of supercharged cars, one turbocharged monster, some drag cars, and more. Even tossed in a clip of Jordan doing some shooting with his Mossberg. Anyway, hopefully you find it interesting…thanks for watching!

Trans Am on the Backroads and a Few Burnouts

Jordan was out cruising the Trans Am around on some backroads yesterday and he had the GoPro running. It got a little squirrelly on him a couple of times and he managed to find a cop out amidst the corn fields somehow. We through some burnout clips at the end, just to keep things interesting. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

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 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!
