Quick... what is the most famous car movie of all time? Bullitt? Vanishing
point? Gone in 60 seconds? Nice guesses, but in terms of influence and
sheer popularity, Smokey and the Bandit stands above them all. Today on
GEARZ! Stacey takes a look at not only the cultural impact of Smokey and
the Bandit, but also it?s most famous character - the black Trans Am. Then
it's off for a test drive of Year One's new Burt Reynolds Bandit edition
Trans Am to see if it lives up to the true supercar status of the original.
Finally, Stacey takes a look, and shows you how to use, one of the most
mysterious and versatile metal working tools out there - the English Wheel.
So strap in and hold on, because we're east bound and down...

Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
