http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Our latest project car - a 1969 Pontiac Firebird named "Routy" - has finally entered the building. It has been patiently waiting in storage in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, and owner Steve Prouty finally got a break in the weather and hauled it to the V8TV shop. The car is in pretty good shape, we don't anticipate any major panel replacement or real surprises, but we'll see when we get into the project. Here's the intro video with the car, and the other "goodies" Steve brought down from America's Dairyland.
SEMA 2008 Projects: 1938 Chevy and 1967 Camaro V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The SEMA show provides an annual
deadline to finish custom cars and hot rods of all sorts, and typically,
John Wargo at The Custom Shop in Flanagan, IL, builds several of each.
This year, John and his crew are hard at work completing a fully customized
1938 Chevy pickup truck and a trick 1967 Camaro for the show. At this
shooting, they had 1 month to left.
1966 GTO - Painting The 2-Tone V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The GTO came to us in primer, but
we didn't want it to hit the streets on the Hot Rod Power Tour in boring
light gray. So the decision was made to shoot the car with a fun 2-tone
paint scheme of charcoal and Scarlet red in PPG basecoat to give the car an
aggressive, satin look. Other materials used include lots of 3M tape and
mask paper. Someday the car will receive some new bodywork and a more
complete paint job, but this is the deal for now.
1969 Pontiac Firebird "Routy" Bodywork Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - The 1969 Firebirds have a lot of
pieces that comprise the nose, and in this video, we go through the process
of making them all fit on our '69 'Bird called "Routy". We mocked up the
bumper using the original parts, then threw them all away in favor of a new
bumper, headlight bezels, rubber fillers, and brackets from Classic
Industries. Then we modified the reproduction 1969 Trans Am hood to
accommodate the Ram Air Pans and scoop inserts. Finally, the car was
bodyworked with 3M fillers and Standox sprayable polyester. A lot happens
here, you might want to watch it a couple times!

Lot S124 1969 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air III Auto
The 1969 Firebird had an identity all its own, especially when equipped
with the new Trans Am Performance and Appearance Package, which included
the Ram Air III 400ci HO engine. Finished only in Polar White with Blue
stripes and accents, the T/A employed a special Ram Air hood, sculpted air
extractor vents on the front fenders and an integrated rear spoiler. Of 697
Trans Ams built that year, only 114 of them came with the turbo 400 automatic. This award-winning '69 Ram
Air III automatic is the recipient of an eighteen month concours-quality
restoration, completed in spring 2005 by Aloha Automotive Services of Port
After painstaking surface preparation, the body was sprayed with four coats
of Cameo White paint followed by Tyrol Blue stripes and 4 coats of clear.
The resulting exterior fit and finish speak for themselves. All chrome was
treated to triple plating by AIH of Dubuque, Iowa, and all stainless trim
hand polished. The Rally II wheels were stripped and re-painted, and shod
with period correct Goodyears.
The rebuilt 400 HO engine has been refinished and detailed to factory
standards using only correctly date coded components. The engine
compartment retains its original steel hood and Ram Air pans, and the
detailed undercarriage is factory correct, including spiral shocks, a
replacement fuel tank, new stainless fuel/brake lines and full length
Gardner aluminized Exhaust.
The interior was renewed with new carpeting, upholstery and trim, and many
components reconditioned using products from Just Dashes and Legendary Auto
Interiors. Wiring harnesses were also replaced.
Since its restoration in 2004/2005 this car has been stored in an
environmentally controlled garage and transported in an enclosed trailer.
