1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20
years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the
original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down
the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap,
Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the
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.

Barn Find 1977 Pontiac Trans Am Restoration
It really was less restoration and more preservation. When this cherry T/A
showed up from California, all eyes were on it. It was rust free and had
been sitting in a barn since 1986! After some game planning, the guys did
the obvious mechanical work to get the car back on the road and reliable.
Then they turned to all the cosmetics that needed TLC to get her looking
sharp again. The iconic late seventies F-bodies are as popular as ever and
this was one the best survivors we have ever seen in the shop.

1963 impala frame off restoration
This is a video of the frame off restoration of my 63 impala. The frame has
been taken completely apart, sand blasted, primered, and then painted. I
have installed new upper and lower a-arm bushings and ball joints. New
front and rear coils and shocks as well as all new stainless steel brake
and fuel lines.. I installed a front power disc brake kit from a company
called MBM. The engine is a rebuilt chevy 350 and the tranny is a rebuilt
chevy turbo 350. I still have a couple
of things to do in order for the frame to be finished and ready to set the
body on it..
Pontiacs for 1964
John DeLorean replaced Pete Estes as general manager, and he continued the
same emphasis on performance that Bunkie Knudsen and Estes had begun.
The big news for 1964 For 1964, the Tempest and LeMans' transaxle design
was dropped and the cars were redesigned under GM's new A body platform;
frame cars with a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The
most important of these is the GTO, short for "Gran Turismo Omologato," the
Italian for "Grand Touring, Homologated" used by Ferrari as a badge to
announce a car's official qualification for racing. In spite of a GM
unwritten edict against engines larger than 330 ci in intermediate cars,
DeLorean (with support from Jim Wangers from Pontiac's ad agency), came up
with the idea to offer the GTO as a dealer option package that included a
389 ci engine rated at 325 or 348 horsepower (260 kW).
