1987 PONTIAC TRANS AM GTA -- A VERY SPECIAL TRANS AM
Presented here is a rare and unique edition of a Trans Am. The Trans Am
GTA. The Firebird body remained basically unchanged. All center,
high-mounted stop lamps were relocated to a new position between the
spoiler and the rear deck lid, and the large Firebird hood emblem
disappeared forever. All V8's now received factory roller camshafts, and
faced with consumer demands for more power, GM officially released the new
5.7L with tuned port fuel injection. Available only with an automatic
transmission, it produced 210 hp and takes the top performance seat from
the 5.0L L69 production is stopped, leaving the LG4 as the only remaining
carbureted V8 used in the F-body. Trans Am GTA, Gran Turismo Americano, was
introduced, available with the LB9 305 TPI engine, which was returned to
215 hp., or the L98 350 TPI. Gold 16-inch, flat-mesh, diamond-spoke wheels
were standard on GTA, with 16-inch, 20-slot wheels standard on Trans Am.
The Trans Am GTA was Pontiac's pride and joy with a standard 5.7L 350 Tuned
Port Injection (TPI). Many people like to say, incorrectly, that the engine
itself was pulled directly out of the C4 Corvette, which itself began using
the engine in 1985, but the heads on the Corvette were aluminum whereas the
Firebird heads were cast Iron. The GTA came with a standard TH-700R4
automatic transmission, A/C, new seats with inflatable lumbar and side
bolsters, special door panels, epoxy-filled emblems, body-colored ground
effects, a special GTA horn button, and the legendary WS6 performance
handling package. All of these options were packaged into the Trans Am
under the RPO code Y84, and the model was produced until the end of Third
Generation F-body production in 1992. Every thing about this GTA is
spectacular. The paint color, the muscle engine that's "clean as a
whistle", the sporty interior, T-Tops, gold colored wheels, and hatch
revealing plenty of storage. This GTA cost around $14,104 new, has a 101
inches wheelbase and weighs 3,435 lbs. U.S. production of GTA's is 9,481
and Canadian figures show 1,509 units. Thanks very much for viewing this
rare and very special 1987 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start
My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero
So, I thought it would be a good idea to crank it over and warm it through
a little. I'd recently had an MSD ignition system and new Edelbrock carb
installed, so was also interested to find out how easy it was to start
The Pontiac was started with no choke. I cranked it over initially just to
make sure everything was free, and to get the oil moving a little, then
popped the bonnet to check the hoses. After that, and with a few pumps of
the pedal, off it went!
The car is a bit of a project, but it's road legal. I'll be doing some more
videos on it soon, so stay tuned.
If you enjoyed the video, please take a second to give it a thumbs up, add
it to a favourites list, or share it. It's always appreciated.
Two Burnouts 1987 Trans Am 357 V8 - Third Gen Pontiac Firebird TA Burnout
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
A bunch of you have been asking for us to do a burnout in the Trans Am for
a while now. We just bought some new tires, so we decided this would be a
good time to burn off the old ones. For those of you that are new to our
channel, this is my son's 1987 Pontiac Trans Am. We swapped in a 357 V8
topped with a Demon 4 BBL carb. The engine is backed by a 700r4 and it has
a Borg Warner 9 bolt rear with 3:08 Gears. Thanks for taking a look!
