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.
1969 Trans Am Barn Find - Part 2

**The thing is that Im not selling/ & its not mine, 'cause it belonges to a
place down in Houston, Tx that auctiones classic cars. They have all
sorts of cars muscle, exotics, nice classics, and so on. I saw on their
website and thought it would be nice to share it on youtube for my first
Test Driving 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 V8 Four-Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1969 Pontiac Firebird.
It's powered by the 400 V8 4 bbl, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It
really looks slick inside and out. It's equipped with the dual hood
scoops, hood mounted tach, rally wheels, and very nice blue metallic paint.
The interior has been completely restored and looks nearly new. These are
excellent driving and handling cars. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching!

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

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

1974 Pontiac Firebird
The Pontiac Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors
between 1967 and 2002. The Firebird was introduced the same year as the
automaker's platform-sharing model, the Chevrolet Camaro. This coincided with the
release of the 1967 Mercury Cougar, which shared its platform with another
pony car, the Ford Mustang.
The second generation debut for the 1970 model year was delayed until
February 26, 1970, because of tooling and engineering problems. Replacing
the "Coke bottle" styling was a more "swoopy" body style, with the top of
the rear window line going almost straight down to the lip of the trunk
lid. This look was to epitomize F-body styling for the longest period
during the Firebird's lifetime. The 1974 models featured a redesigned
"shovel-nose" front end and new wide "slotted" taillights.
