1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20 years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap, Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the immediate future.

Flawless 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400
Dave Armstrong, the master GM mechanic who keeps my Fiero on the road, did a frame-up restoration on this flawless, award-winning 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400. (Quick, all you old-timers. What were the names of the other Firebird models available that year? No peeking.)
I'm always amazed at his ability to find NOS parts that aren't even being made anymore by anyone, especially GM.
Dave takes this car to Pontiac shows during the summer; don't miss the opportunity to see it up close and personal. This video doesn't do it justice.
If you have a GM car (or any other car or truck, for that matter), and you live in the Chicago area, take it to him. Ace Muffler, 7157 W. Irving Park Rd., near Harlem/Irving Plaza. (773)282-1444. How good is he? When he replaced the Iron Duke in my Fiero, his years of experience allowed him to take the old one out through the top instead of dropping the rear suspension and drivetrain, as Pontiac recommended. Yes, he knows his business.
And anyone who would take a car like this into Chicago evening rush-hour traffic is either very brave or knows that he could build another one just like it, which he could;) That lap-dissolve at 3:16 was necessitated by a very rude, very obscene comment and hand gesture by the female passenger in that Toyota Yaris. Pure jealousy, that's all that was.
That Firebird 400 V8 sound is music. If you have stereo speakers on your computer, turn them up.
He's also restoring a '69 Pontiac Ventura, which I shot video of and will be uploading later on.

1969 Pontiac Firebird
www.coyoteclassics.com 1969 Pontiac Firebird: Built 350, 3 speed automatic transmission, power steering, power disk brakes, 400 hood, emblems, hood and in dash tachometer, TA fender scoops along with rear spoiler, new American racing rims, with RWL tires, and headers with dual Exhaust. This Beautiful street machine under went a full sub frame off rotisserie restoration with a full photo album of every stage of restoration this car had and was completed in 1998. One day after completion it took best of show in a Florida car show. It was a complete car that was taken down to the bare shell and every nut and bolt was removed. The motor, transmission, and rear end was also all rebuilt with a mild cam in engine, shift kit in the transmission, and a 10 bolt possi with 342 gears in the rear. This car screams muscle and still looks great today! The paint is still in great shape with a laser straight body and a brilliant finish. The interior in done very nicely with an exception of the dash, in my opinion takes away from the rest of the restoration. The floors, frame, suspension, and trunk are all very solid and nice. This is a car that is ready to jump in and turn heads!
