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.

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.
