Oh Deer - 1987 Trans Am Project Update Number Two
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought I'd give you another update on the 1987 Pontiac Trans Am project. This week, we have some good news and some bad news. We hit a little stumbling block, when a deer decided to jump on the hood of the car. We're still moving forward though, and we'll have everything sorted out shortly. Thanks for watching!
Hood Pin Install 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
We decided to install some hood pins my sons 1987 Pontiac Trans Am project car. The hood took a pretty good hit from a deer and we were a bit worried about the latch mechanism. Also, my son has always wanted a car with hood pins anyway. He still may replace the factory hood with a fiberglass hood, but we can just drill it out and reuse our same pins. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching! http://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundonYouTube http://ramblinaroundonyoutube.wordpress.com/ https://twitter.com/#!/RamblinAround The background music track is Whiskey on the Mississippi by Kevin MacLeod.

The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011 ISRC: US-UAN-11-00709 Bouncy, Grooving 2010
My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV My son has been looking for a car for a while now. He wanted something that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a third generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to be a bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore and modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car is a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner already added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor and coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks, subframe connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a great base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
Trans Am - First Start up, Cam Break In, and Wicked Idle
It'll be a little while before we can really see what it's got, but it sure sounds mean. The cam break-in sure was nerve racking. We're sure glad to have that part over with and hopefully things go smoothly from here on out. We still have a lot of tuning to do on the car, but I know a bunch of you were waiting to hear it run. The idle on that Howards cam definitely sounds plenty healthy. From the little bit of accelerating we did from 2500 RPM to 4200 RPM, it feels like it's going to be a strong runner. We're going to take it easy for a bit though and break it in well. Thanks for watching, we'll have more updates coming soon!
