1975 Pontiac Firebird 30-Day Frame Off Restoration & 4-Speed Changeover Blitzkreig!!!
A video slideshow, featuring hardcore blues background music, that details
the frame-off restoration of my 1975 Pontiac Firebird Formula in only 30
days, including a 4-speed swap!!! See how to develop nearly 375 horsepower from a basically
stock Pontaic 350, using small valve/small port 421 heads, idling with 18
in/Hg of vacuum @ 650 rpm with 220°/226° @ .050" on a 111.5° LSA, all
for less than $500.00 invested in the engine!!!
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.

PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).

horsepower and 385

1970s F-bodies are white-hot collectables, particularly those like this
lovely Nocturne Blue '79, which shows just 49,235 original miles and packs
its numbers-matching Pontiac 400 and 4-speed manual transmission. This
isn't your run-of-the-mill dingy survivor, either, but a car with a
stunning cosmetic and mechanical restoration that makes it one of the
best-driving cars of the era.
Completely disassembled, stripped, and refinished from the steel on up,
this stunning car looks FAR nicer than it ever did in 1979. The paint is
two-stage urethane, which finally does the Nocturne Blue justice, with
incredible depth and a brilliant gloss that just wasn't possible with 1970s
paint technology. Every inch was color sanded and buffed to erase any
flaws, and it was assembled with more care than GM could spare on an
assembly line. In a showroom full of nice cars, this one seems to stand out
due to the exceptional attention to detail the cosmetics received.
The engine is a genuine Pontiac 400, one of the last that were squirreled
away by Pontiac engineers and reserved exclusively for the more potent
4-speed cars. Fully rebuilt and detailed for show, it's also the original,
numbers-matching piece that was installed in December of 1978 when this car
rolled down the assembly line. The block wears correct Pontiac Turquoise
paint, chrome valve covers on which someone has miraculously managed to
duplicate production chrome, as well as the massive hood scoop atop the
original air cleaner. It runs as it should, firing up easily and settling
into a rumbling idle, and pulling like only a true muscle car V8 can out on
The T10 4-speed behind it is also the original, numbers-matching piece, and
it drives what appears to be the original 10-bolt rear end. The chassis is
highly original and unrestored, which will give you a good idea of how
well-preserved this car really is. Floors are solid and clean, the frame is
undamaged, and new shocks have been fitted all around, along with a new gas
tank. Perhaps the car's most remarkable feature are the beautifully
restored "snowflake" alloy wheels wearing new-old-stock Goodyear Polylsteel
Inside, the blue cloth interior is equally well preserved and in
outstanding condition. Fabric seats are quite rare and again point to an
original owner who was all about performance. Matching blue door panels,
carpets, and even a beautifully restored steering wheel give the interior a
bright, airy feel without diluting the T/A's performance image. An
AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit has been fitted just ahead of the original
shifter for the 4-speed. The trunk offers a fabric liner, space-saver
spare, jack assembly, and NOS inflation bottle, which is a truly rare find.
This is yet another opportunity for you to pick up a gorgeous T/A for not a
lot of money, in a market that's only going up from here. With low mileage,
matching numbers, a 4-speed, and a very nice restoration, this one needs
nothing to be driven and enjoyed while it appreciates. It's the ideal blend
of show-quality looks and awesome drivability, ready to cruise this summer.

XcorpsTV at So Cal Paint Works with the Bandit X project
We found a great restorations shop in Santee California to base the
project. So Cal Paint Works has stepped up to take on the project and we
couldnt be more thrilled. We went down for their customer appreciation day
and saw some of the cars that they had done and we were hooked. They are
going to strip the car completely down to bare metal and start from
scratch. If your looking for a shop to restore your car or do the paint
work we highly recommend So Cal Paint Works.
