Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #3: 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
This week's Muscle Car Of The Week from The Brothers Collection is a
super-rare 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am, complete with the Ram Air IV 400 cube
V8 and Muncie 4-speed transmission!
1970 marked the second generation for GM's F body platform, and the company
made substantial improvements to the car over the '67-'69 versions. The
1970 1/2 models were longer and more spacious inside, and generally drove
more comfortably than the earlier cars. 1970 also marked the peak in
performance Muscle Cars, and the 1970 1/2 Trans Am was one of the top
performers. The Pontiac Trans Am came loaded with numerous performance
add-ons, such as upgraded suspension, brakes, Exhaust, and distinctive styling.
This particular Polar White Trans Am is among the most sought-after of all,
as it features the 370 HP Ram Air IV V8 engine and a Muncie 4-speed
transmission. The Ram Air IV engine was assembled with very tight
tolerances from the factory, making it as close to a hand-built racing
engine as you could buy from GM. The RAIV package started with a 4-bolt
main block, forged crank and pistons, and a high performance oil pump, but
the big difference was in the top half of the engine. The Ram Air IV heads
boasted 67cc chambers, 2.11" swirl-polished intake valves and 1.77" Exhaust valves, and large round Exhaust ports. The .520" lift RAIV cam had a
long 308 degree intake / 320 degree Exhaust duration and pulled air through an
aluminum dual-plane intake manifold. These parts sounded more like they
were hand-picked by a race engine builder than a factory offering, but
that's what makes the RAIV so special. They only made 88 of these cars,
59 were manuals and the other 29 came with automatics. It's one of the
few cars where both transmissions were offered and the manual outsold the
auto. Watch the video to learn more about this Pontiac Historical
Society documented correct '70 1/2 and its unique details like the original
2-tone blue seat covers, 1-year only Rally II wheels, and distinctive

If you're a Trans Am enthusiast who's searching for that elusive F2 that
you can literally purchase and drive straight to the show, we've got the
car for you!
Assembled at GM's famous Norwood manufacturing facility in May of 1970,
this awesome blue bird was shipped across the country to A&G Motor Sales in
Tell City, Indiana where it began a 43 year existence filled with
immaculate maintenance and impeccable care. Today, wearing solid, rust-free
body panels, it displays a nice looking coat of GM code 26 Lucerne Blue
paint on top of smooth and solid surfaces that we're recently re-visited in
a high quality, frame-off restoration. And that cool blue paint is
complemented by a correct set of "TRANS AM" call-outs that, along with a
centered roof stripe and an aggressive 'Screaming Chicken' hood decal,
create some of the most iconic and desirable muscle car war paint in
Take a look under this Tin Indian's glossy blue hood and you'll find a 400
cubic inch, L74 Ram Air III V8 that, thanks to the car's fresh restoration,
is a trophy worthy showpiece. Back in the early 70s, government-mandated
emissions standards ensured the muscle car era was coming to an abrupt end.
And many of the models that virtually owned the streets not even five years
earlier were, unfortunately, in their final days of production. Luckily,
the gearheads at Pontiac kept the faith and continued to offer multiple
performance options which still created the kind of torque-rich power that
muscle car buyers had come to crave. At 400 cubic inches, this WS block was
already one of the largest engines you could buy in 1970; and by utilizing
a unique distributor and application-specific heads, it managed to meet
ever increasing emissions standards while still turning out a solid 345 horsepower and a
stump pulling 430 lb./ft. of torque!
Behind that monster motor, a rugged Muncie M20 4-speed sends power to a
beefy 12 bolt rear end that does a great job on either the back roads or
the interstate. Below that stellar powertrain, a rebuilt Trans Am
suspension, which includes factory power steering, thicker sway bars,
better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power front
disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling. And
that roster of road ready hardware rolls on a fresh set of Pontiac Rally II
wheels which spin F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around pristine PMD center
Open this Pontiac's mile-wide doors and you'll find a fully restored GM
code 201 interior that blends seamlessly with the car's bright blue paint!
Low back bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every bit as nice and rich
as our pictures imply. Between those seats, a molded blue console props an
enclosed storage bin behind a chrome Hurst shifter and a factory 8-track
player. And in front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned dash
props crystal clear gauges and a correct Delco radio behind a black tilt
column and a black Formula steering wheel.
This highly desirable Trans Am is a pristine example of Pontiac's
contribution to Detroit's first golden age of performance. Call, click or

I thought you'd like a look at this 1972 Pontiac Trans Am 455 HO. It's
equipped with a 455 V8 that's pumping out 300 horsepower and 415 LbFt of
torque. All that power is funneled back through a four-speed manual trans
to a posi rear end. This really is one of the last great cars of the muscle
car era. Thanks for watching and commenting, I appreciate it!
