Trans Am Mustangs
Trans Am was a racing series that started in the late '60s before 'Trans
Am' the car, by Pontiac, existed. These are various pictures of some of the
Trans Am Mustangs that
raced in this series from 1966 to 1970.

Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!

132152 / 1970 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bmsk3es
This spectacular, 100% numbers matching 1970½ Trans Am Ram Air IV is one
of only 59 built with a 4-speed, and fully documented with a build sheet. A
life-long west coast car, this was one of only 24 RA IV cars built at the
Van Nuys assembly plant.
Gaps are exemplary, panel fit is very good, and this might be the most well
assembled early F-body I've ever seen. The Polar White paint matches the
factory finish exactly, and the decals are reproductions. Out back, the
ducktail spoiler fits beautifully and carries the correct TRANS AM
Simply selecting RPO 342 got you the famed 370-horsepower round-port Ram
Air IV engine, which delivered much more than simply an advertised 25 hp
over the standard D-port Ram Air III engine. Atop that intake and under the
solenoid-operated scoop, the Rochester Quadrajet carburetor makes its home.
The cylinder heads are 614 castings, the block is a correct WW unit, the
intake is a correct 97999 casting, and the unique Ram Air IV Exhaust manifolds have been beautifully
The Muncie M20 4-speed manual is the original, matching numbers piece,
while out back, the RA IV was the only Firebird to receive a 12-bolt rear
end as standard equipment (this one is packed with 3.73 gears and a Posi
for explosive acceleration). The heavy-duty power disc brakes have been
fully rebuilt, and correct F41-spec shocks are at all four corners. It's
finished off with a set of original date-coded Rally II wheels and
Firestone Wide Ovals.
This one sports its original code 211 Medium Bright Blue Vinyl interior.
The seats and door panels have been reconditioned and re-dyed, but the
carpets are spectacularly original, as is the headliner. The trunk features
that fitted floor mat, as well as a full-sized spare tire with complete

1970 Pontiac Trans Am "Splitter": First Drive V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Splitter is all back together and it was finally
time to take to the streets! Brett Evans toured us around with the 1970
Pontiac Trans Am clone through some quite backroads, but it's hard to be
inconspicuous in a borderline race car! We'll be at the track soon to
get some real numbers, both at the drag strip and on the road course.
