1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" Sheetmetal Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After the subframe was re-attached to our 1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy," the reassembly began. First up was the sheetmetal, namely the doors, fenders, core support, and the reproduction steel Trans Am hood. We had to do a few tricks to make them all line up correctly, but it wasn't too bad of a project. Here's how the process went.
1969 Firebird "Routy" Holley Avenger EFI System Install Video Part 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - After our 1969 Pontiac Firebird was painted, we made the jump to Electronic Fuel Injection using the Holley Avenger EFI system . We were impressed with the completeness of the kit, that it came with not only the ECM, throttle body, and hand-held controller, but also the complete fuel system down to the hose clamps. We used an MSD Pro-Billet distributor for the ignition duties. After a couple hiccups along the way... mostly ground related, our Pontiac 400 came to life and the system worked perfectly. It's easy to set up, tunes itself in learning mod, offers datalogging, expandability, and more. The drivability is sweet, the power is instant, and the car exhibits refined manners. The Avenger EFI system lived up to Holley's claims and then some.

What do you think?
Engine is a freshly rebuilt 400 block, .060 bored, hooker headers, holley carb, holley electric fuel pump, and dual flowmasters. For now not focusing on the engine but I've been thinking about rebuilding a faster 400 and upgrading the automatic transmission to a manual shift 5 speed. Not trying to build a car show quality or a superfast car, mostly a cruiser and once in a while fun at the drag strip.

Flawless 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400
Dave Armstrong, the master GM mechanic who keeps my Fiero on the road, did a frame-up restoration on this flawless, award-winning 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400. (Quick, all you old-timers. What were the names of the other Firebird models available that year? No peeking.)
I'm always amazed at his ability to find NOS parts that aren't even being made anymore by anyone, especially GM.
Dave takes this car to Pontiac shows during the summer; don't miss the opportunity to see it up close and personal. This video doesn't do it justice.
If you have a GM car (or any other car or truck, for that matter), and you live in the Chicago area, take it to him. Ace Muffler, 7157 W. Irving Park Rd., near Harlem/Irving Plaza. (773)282-1444. How good is he? When he replaced the Iron Duke in my Fiero, his years of experience allowed him to take the old one out through the top instead of dropping the rear suspension and drivetrain, as Pontiac recommended. Yes, he knows his business.
And anyone who would take a car like this into Chicago evening rush-hour traffic is either very brave or knows that he could build another one just like it, which he could;) That lap-dissolve at 3:16 was necessitated by a very rude, very obscene comment and hand gesture by the female passenger in that Toyota Yaris. Pure jealousy, that's all that was.
That Firebird 400 V8 sound is music. If you have stereo speakers on your computer, turn them up.
He's also restoring a '69 Pontiac Ventura, which I shot video of and will be uploading later on.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - The final video covering the paint process on our 1969 Pontiac Firebird project "Routy." This time, we're laying out the stripe design and spraying the DuPont silver and Gun Metal stripes. Later, we do the initial wetsanding with the 3M Trizact system, including the new 3M Denibbing gun. Lastly, we polish the car using 3M products. Next is the final assembly and installation of Holley's Avenger EFI system.
1969 Trans Am 1 owner barn find
I recently purchased this 1 owner 1969 Trans Am. It was parked in 1982 when the owner was transferred out of state. It is a Ram Air III 4 speed car. Other than some surface rust it really has no real rust to speak of. UPDATE: The car has been sold and now lives with its new owner in the midwest.
1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 - Suzy Q
Mike took his 69 Firebird out for one last ride on August 1, 2009.
Ten days later it was shipping from New Jersey heading to Norway.
He sold it to a collector in Norway where there is a big interest in the American Muscle Car.
Long live his Firebird - Suzy Q!
Twin Turbo 1968 Camaro "MotiV8r" Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Larry Callahan runs the website Pro-Touring.com, and his own twin turbocharged 1968 Camaro is a textbook example of the kinds of cars the website is built around. The "MotiV8r" Camaro features every pro-touring trick in the book, and was built by Prodigy Customs to run as good as it looks. Video from the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational DVD.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance 350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than 10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end. The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.
