My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am

Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I've been looking for a car for my son for a while now. He wanted something that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a third generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to be a bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore and modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car is a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner already added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor and coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks, subframe connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a great base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

Update - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I just thought I'd show you the progress that we've made on the 1987 Trans Am project. Jordan spent hours buffing the paint out with rubbing compound and then wax. It definitely looks a whole lot better already. He also put a quick coat of paint on the spoiler and touched up some of the silver on the nose. We changed the oil and filter, put in some fresh gas, and it seems to be running really well. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!





Oh Deer - 1987 Trans Am Project Update Number Two
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought I'd give you another update on the 1987 Pontiac Trans Am project. This week, we have some good news and some bad news. We hit a little stumbling block, when a deer decided to jump on the hood of the car. We're still moving forward though, and we'll have everything sorted out shortly. Thanks for watching!





Painting Pontiac Trans Am GunMetal Gray Plasti Dip
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV We recently installed a new front bumper cover and ground effects on my son's 1987 Trans Am. After the repair, the car was red and black, with a white bumper...so we decided it was time to paint it. We're not ready for a show quality paint job yet, so we decided to go with Plasti Dip. Jordan cleaned, prepped, and painted the car entire on his own. In this video, you can see that it really is coming along well. I really like the gunmetal gray color. He also decided to remove the door moldings for a more clean and custom look. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Relax, Dad, it's a car for children...
As youngsters around the world fall out of love with driving, one manufacturer is fighting back. Only a few years ago environmentalists were worrying about how our addiction to the car was going to destroy the planet. Scroll forward a few years and car companies are wringing their hands at how an entire generation has fallen out of love with the motor vehicle. This explains why, this week, I was the first person in Britain to test a concept car built by Toyota called the CamAtte, which translates as "Play with me". Or rather, my son, Alexander, aged 10, was the first to drive it. I was in the back seat, with my hand nervously hovering over an emergency parental hand-brake. The car, which looks as solid as a Playmobil safari Jeep, is designed for a child to drive. It has just one proper seat and a mere handful of controls: an on/off button, a knob that puts the vehicle into reverse or drive, a steering wheel, an accelerator pedal and a brake pedal. All of these are controlled by the child. But there is also a very tiny back seat, into which the parent can squash. And it is here that you can find the emergency hand-brake and -- if things are looking as if your offspring is about cause a pile-up -- a circuit breaker that will shut down the entire vehicle, which is run on rechargeable lead acid batteries.

132907 / 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SE
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6tqgg3u This fully sorted 1977 Trans Am Special Edition is a documented, numbers matching Y82 Special Edition that features Pontiac's highly desirable W72 400 engine, a 4-speed transmission and, best of all, a fresh frame-off restoration. Assembled at GM's famous Norwood manufacturing facility in April of 1977 as one of only 2,699 Y82 Special Editions, this pristine black and gold Trans Am was shipped right up Interstate 71 to Haydocy Pontiac in Columbus, Ohio where it began a 35 year existence filled with immaculate maintenance and impeccable care. Today, after a highly detailed frame-off restoration, it presents as practically brand new and displays a spectacular coat of GM code 19 Starlight Black paint on top of smooth and solid body panels which are as straight and as the day they left the showroom floor. On top of those cool black panels, a fresh set of Special Edition exclusive full outlining stripes complement an awesome Special Edition exclusive gold and matte gold trimmed 'screaming chicken' hood decal which is one of the most iconic automotive brandings in history. Pop the black and gold hood and you'll find this Trans Ams all original 6.6 liter W72 V8 which wears a correct 500557 casting number and a correct 27N191886 partial VIN. At 400 cubic inches, the Pontiac 6.6 litre was already the largest engine you could buy in 1977; and by utilizing smaller "6X" heads and a revised camshaft, it created bigger compression and successfully reversed almost a decade of declining horsepower numbers. At the top of the motor, a correct Rochester 4-barrel carburetor sucks air through the cars awesome shaker scoop. Below that carburetor, original GM corporate blue paint coats the entire block; and original Exhaust manifolds send spent gases into a high performance factory Exhaust system. All the hard parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and optional air conditioning hanging on the fire wall are factory correct. And as expected tags, markings and stamps are just where they should be from the date coded core support to the cars freshly cleaned cowl tag. At the bottom of this slick F-body, solid floorpans tell the story of years of excellent maintenance, and a fresh rebuilt suspension tells the story of an excellent restoration. Behind the motor, an original Borg Warner T10 4-speed transmission, which wears a correct 1304065903 casting number and a correct 27N191866 partial VIN, sends power to an original 10 bolt rear end which has been restored to factory specifications. Below that stellar powertrain, a rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes power steering, thicker sway bars, better shocks and stiffer springs combines with standard issue power front disc brakes and rear drums to provide quick stops and great handling. And at the corners of the car, restored aluminum Pontiac snow flake wheels spin Special Edition exclusive gold paint around 'red bird' center caps and correct GR70-15 Goodyear Steelgard white letter tires. Open this Trans Am's massive black doors and you'll find a fully restored optional velour interior that wraps Special Edition exclusive gold trim in a whole lot of old school style! The cars rebuilt seats are firm, crisp and look every bit as nice and rich as their velour name implies. Below those seats, like-new black carpet, which is carefully protected by factory replacement floor mats, displays no fading or unraveling; and between the seats, a silver trimmed console props buttons for the cars power windows behind a chrome Hurst shifter. At the top of the car, a stain-free headliner is stretched tight around the cars Hurst T-tops. At the sides of the car, pitch black door panels hang pristine pull straps and new chrome door handles below Special Edition exclusive gold badging. And in front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned gold dash houses crystal clear gauges, controls for heat and air conditioning, and the cars original Delco-GM AM/FM stereo behind a correct gold Formula steering wheel and optional tilt steering column. If you're in the market for a kick ass Trans Am that is the quintessential late 70s American muscle car; here it is. Grab it fast and thank us in ten years as you watch its value climb!
