http://www.v8tvshow.com/forum - 16 year old kids are in a tough spot these days. We're not talking about the pressures of daily life and all that B.S.; we're referring to the fact that the kids who are into cool cars usually don't have the cash or the ability to get their mitts on a cool ride. Add to that un-sympathetic parents, and you've got millions of high schoolers rollin' beat up civics or other cheap junk. Dale Schwartz has a leg up, however, with his new project they're calling the Y-Gen 3rd-Gen. It's a Trans Am that's a full 7 years older than Dale, but he was able to build a car he wanted the way he wanted.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance
350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than
10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI
swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and
see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store
type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end.
The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation
software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the
engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy
cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a
Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some
Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the
parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the
cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #35: 1970 Mercury Cyclone GT 429 Super Cobra Jet Pilot Car
This 1970 Mercury Cyclone GT from the Brothers Collection packs all the
cool go-fast parts you could get on this car - a 375 horsepower 429 V8, a 4-speed
manual transmission, and 4.30:1 rear gears making it the Super Cobra Jet
package. It's bright red, sounds mean, and runs hard. Even cooler is
that this was a Mercury pilot car, which meant it was destined to be
crushed after assembly. Find out the story in this week's Muscle Car Of
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.

Junkyard Turbo Swap! Chevy-Powered 1971 Datsun 240Z Autocross Thrash - Roadkill Ep. 26
What do you get when you cross a rusted 1971 Datsun 240Z with a Chevy 4.3L
V6 and a turbo from a Ford Power Stroke
Diesel? The Rotsun! During Roadkill Episode 25, Freiburger and Finnegan
revived the Rotsun expecting it to dominate in the 9-car autocross showdown
of previous Roadkill project cars. It also needed to beat a 2014 Kia Rio 5,
but failed to do so with the Rotsun shamefully breaking down before
completing a decent lap. So in this episode: revenge. After swapping in the
mismatched turbo and making nearly 400
rear-wheel horsepower, the guys head to
the autocross at the Goodguys 5th Spring Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona
and mingle with fans on their way to a rematch with that dastardly Kia.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.
