John Storie's 78 Trans Am, shakedown run at Greer Dragway, South Carlina.
Car is Sponsored by TransamPartsandMore.com. Attention Pontiac Fans, try to
overlook the Pro Car we were paired with. This is the first run on our
bracket motor, Pontiac 400, stock stroke, stock rods stock bore, no NOS.
More to come. Thanks to all our friends and family for the support. This
car was built in 6 weeks with the help of my friends at Mountain Automotive
and Performance, Swannanoa North Carolina. Special thanks to Garry Ramsey
and Brent Burnette. The Nitrous motor
will be ready soon, that is the 1/4 mile motor, and we are still looking
for sponsors, lord willing the car should run in the 9's on the 1/4 tracks.
Anyone interested please email me at email@example.com. Thanks Again, John
1979 Pontiac Trans Am - TA 1/4 mile G-Tech runs and having some fun
This is my 79 TA - it has 230,000 mile on the original 403 Olds motor and
its turbo 350 trans. I've added
performance parts to both the engine and trans but the heads have never
been off the block and trans has never been rebuilt. It does have edelbrock
performer cam and intake, Dynomax headers, dual Exhaust, shift kit in the trans, 3.42:1 rear
gear, welded sub-frame connections, and an electric black-max fan. Plus
Re-tuned Q-jet carb
1973 Trans Am Exhaust SD455
1973 Super Duty Trans Am Exhaust, open
hood scoop, Gardner Exhaust, SD455,
Here is an excerpt from Popular Hot Rodding Magazine (September 1982) full
page write-up about the 73-74 Super Duty Trans Am.
The first and last paragraphs:
"Probably one of the most awesome engines ever produced by Pontiac was the
Super Duty which was built in two versions, 1961-1963 and 1973-1974. The
Super Duty engine was ahead of its time churning out great doses of torque
When combined with the Trans Am body style it made for an unbeatable
combination of power and handling.
All Super Duty Trans Ams came with the 8 1/2-inch 10-bolt rear end, and
with the optional 3.42 to 1 rear gearing were capable of running
13.90-second quarter mile times. If you're interested in picking up a
Super Duty T/A today, they run between $5,000 and $10,000 depending on
condition. If you can't afford one, pretend you can and take a test ride.
Once you've been in one, you won't forget what they look, sound, and feel

1979 Pontiac Trans Am 455 H.O. tour
This is a video of the 1979 Pontiac Trans Am H.O. that me and my dad built.
Very powerful car. It has not been Dynoed yet or run on the drag
strip. But it has done a few burnouts ;)
