This is a movie about a '78 Trans Am that my daddy has owned since the early 80's. He restored it a few years back and it looks like new. There has been many times where he worked night and day on this car...countless hours. My dad has always worked hard and never "half done" anything. He unfortunately suffered a stroke a couple of years ago and is unable to use his left hand. It's a long road but we are all confident that he will get better. I love you daddy!

Snowflake Wheel Restoration Pt.1
Here I will walk you through the steps to restoring a Trans Am snowflake
wheel back to factory condition. Using OEM factory paint in the proper
color is key to a proper restoration. I will be using, Classic Industries
OEM color Placer Gold for the process as it is an exact match in a can so
there is no need to buy and mix paint. 2 cans will easily do all 4 wheels.
Chap Stick is used on the spoke areas for easy paint removal.

Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was
pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home
until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for
all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a
mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was
totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust
bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT
THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER
PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY
DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON
HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU
WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS
