Custom 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Startup Exhaust & In Depth Tour
Hello & Welcome To fordMustang98guy & Today I Have A Very
Special Treat This Afternoon I present you all a full in depth review on my
buddy's Custom 1968 Pontiac Firebird. I take viewers on a close look
through the interior and exterior of the car while showing details, over
viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself.
I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it
revvs under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to
give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
JCG Restorations 1968 Camaro -- /BIG MUSCLE
Tucked away in a small industrial park in Oxnard, CA sits JCG Restorations
& Customs, a moderately sized shop that has built some of the best
performing pro-touring cars that we've ever driven. Now generally we don't
focus in on shops, however when the owners of three of our best test cars
start dropping names, we tend to listen. Originally we descended on JCG to
drive Blu Balz, a stunning 1968 Camaro owned by one Karl Dunn.
However since Mother Nature decided to water the Earth that day, we put our
original plans on hold and got shop owner Cris Gonzalez to give us the in's
and out's of what it takes to make a stellar pro-touring car.

This beautiful Pontiac came to us out of Virginia, from a man who owned the
car for about two years. He didn't really do a whole lot to the car in the
two years, just changed the oil and occasionally drove it. The car was
restored about 5 years ago by a man who had friends in the automotive
industry. The group restored this car back to its original glory, maybe
even a little better. They spared no expense, as the owner planned on
keeping the car forever. Once the project was finished, he decided he
didn't use it enough to justify keeping it, so he sold it to the guy we
bought it from in Virginia. The car was a southern car most of its life and
PHS Documents, original owners manual and original protection plan booklet
are included in the sale.
