My 1968 firebird 400 just finished totally rebuilding the motor from block up about a month ago, along with dads fully restored 1933 studebaker rockne which he did about 15 years ago. It was just recently invited to the Concourse DeElegance in Hilton Head S.C.

1967 Tempest new camshaft Ultra Dyne 220/226 @ .050 in Pontiac 400
Traded my friend Robert for this camshaft. Came already broken in with a matched set of lifters. I swapped it out over the last month or so. I still have to install the temp gauge in the car, so I am not running it that long yet. Put around 2 miles on it. PULLS!!!! Hard!!! I have to find the coil bind on the springs. might have just increased redline!!!





1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start
My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero temperatures. So, I thought it would be a good idea to crank it over and warm it through a little. I'd recently had an MSD ignition system and new Edelbrock carb installed, so was also interested to find out how easy it was to start after sitting. The Pontiac was started with no choke. I cranked it over initially just to make sure everything was free, and to get the oil moving a little, then popped the bonnet to check the hoses. After that, and with a few pumps of the pedal, off it went! The car is a bit of a project, but it's road legal. I'll be doing some more videos on it soon, so stay tuned. If you enjoyed the video, please take a second to give it a thumbs up, add it to a favourites list, or share it. It's always appreciated.

68 Firebird Summit Street/Strip Muffler Exhaust
1968 Firebird 350 with Hooker longtube headers into 2 1/2" Summit Racing Street/Strip chambered mufflers dumped. Sounds pretty good for $29 each! Now I just need to finish the bodywork. The higher revs are near the end. Its definitely louder and deeper in person, I think my editing software is making the sound softer...bummer
