77 Plantinum Bandit @ The Dyno!
Here is a quick upload of the Dyno session we did with the
Platinum Bandit just after the TA Nats this year.
The Platinum Bandit, is an original 77 SE 4spd TA, that we converted over
to a lot of modern technology to make it a fun road ready car with a lot of
power. The 474 stroked engine we recently built for it with the help of
Butler Performance, will be featured in the next issue of High Performance
Pontiac Magazine. Pushing 585HP off of 89 Ethanol fuel, with plenty of
vacuum and drive-ability, really makes this car come alive! I will be
posting a video of all the updated components and their manufacturers soon.

Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!

Dale's 78 Special Edition TA - Restored!
Dale is a good friend of Restore a Muscle Cars, and we have been working
with him every step of the way in the frame off restoration of his SE TA,
that he has had for a long time. Dale has been restoring this car since
last years TA Nats and over the past month or so is really putting in the
overtime! Dale gets married this weekend, so we are under a crunch to help
him get his TA done! Last night 1 a.m. we finished 95% of the decaling...
