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!!!

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).

132861 / 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/76m6wun 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 road. 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 Radials. 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. Gregg Scott will be doing the 455 for the Phoenix Project. He has a long history in drag racing and builds engines for some of the top racers at Barona Drag Strip. He builds high horsepower engines that are street driver friendly. Our friend Dave over at Pro Touring F-body is supplying us with the suspension parts that we need for our Phoenix project aka Bandit X. We are up grading to solid sub frame bushings, tubular upper and lower control arms, sub frame connectors, new coil springs, rear leaf springs along with his adjustable shocks. All this is going to make the car handle way better than it ever did. Well be out tearing up the auto cross like it was a Sunday drive in the country. We would like to thank Pilo Chevy Parts for supplying us with all the weather stripping and rubber bumpers for our car. Paul carries a full line of restoration parts for your classic GM vehicle. He can get everything from interior stuff to decals.
