The 1969 Firebird had an identity all its own, especially when equipped with the new Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package, which included the Ram Air III 400ci HO engine. Finished only in Polar White with Blue stripes and accents, the T/A employed a special Ram Air hood, sculpted air extractor vents on the front fenders and an integrated rear spoiler. Of 697 Trans Ams built that year, only 114 of them came with the turbo 400 automatic. This award-winning '69 Ram Air III automatic is the recipient of an eighteen month concours-quality restoration, completed in spring 2005 by Aloha Automotive Services of Port Washington, Wisconsin.
After painstaking surface preparation, the body was sprayed with four coats of Cameo White paint followed by Tyrol Blue stripes and 4 coats of clear. The resulting exterior fit and finish speak for themselves. All chrome was treated to triple plating by AIH of Dubuque, Iowa, and all stainless trim hand polished. The Rally II wheels were stripped and re-painted, and shod with period correct Goodyears.
The rebuilt 400 HO engine has been refinished and detailed to factory standards using only correctly date coded components. The engine compartment retains its original steel hood and Ram Air pans, and the detailed undercarriage is factory correct, including spiral shocks, a replacement fuel tank, new stainless fuel/brake lines and full length Gardner aluminized Exhaust.
The interior was renewed with new carpeting, upholstery and trim, and many components reconditioned using products from Just Dashes and Legendary Auto Interiors. Wiring harnesses were also replaced.
Since its restoration in 2004/2005 this car has been stored in an environmentally controlled garage and transported in an enclosed trailer.

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with an 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

Lot S125 1970 Chevrolet Nova SS 396 375 HP Auto
With the proper equipment, Chevrolet's Nova SS was an affordable bomb of a
car, a formidable runner right off the showroom floor. The Nova grew from
the Chevy II, Chevrolet's entry into the budget compact market. Engine
choices expanded as the car grew in size until in 1968 it was redesigned on
the Camaro platform,
enabling the use of the 396, and renamed the Nova. Chevy thus had another
big-block arrow in its quiver. Lighter than almost anything else from GM,
the Nova SS396 was incredibly quick, especially the 375 horsepower L78 version.
Meanwhile, the visual side of the SS package remained as low key as ever,
as demonstrated by this good-looking 1970 SS396. Cortez Silver with a Black
interior, the car has been thoroughly restored and detailed to the highest
level of finish. The numbers-matching drivetrain comprises the L78
big-block (more accurately a 402) and turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission turning a
12-bolt Positraction differential. Power brakes with front discs keep
things under control.
Interior options include bucket seats, console, AM radio and a soft-rim
Sport steering wheel. The few outward clues to the car's performance tell
the story: SS badges, black-accented grille and tail and simulated hood air
intakes, not to mention those "396" callouts. Magnum-style wheels and
Firestone Wide Ovals add a bit more show to this handsome big-block Nova.
Camero SS versus pontiac Trans am
A camero ss takes on a Trans am. Both cars use's V8 engines with high
compression at 100 pounds of Boost
of the wheels itself. Horse power is about 380 for the two but well have to
see who puts there burn to the test. You gotta see this
