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
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
Trans Am Project Update and Road Test - 357 V8 Demon 4 BBL
Quite a few of you have been asking for an update on my son's 1987 Pontiac
Trans Am, so we thought we better make a video. We've just been busy with
other things recently, so we haven't done anything to major to it. As you
can see though, Jordan has made a few changes and it's still running really
well. Thanks for watching along with this project, we appreciate it!
Oh Deer - 1987 Trans Am Project Update Number Two
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!
Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and
ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate
just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most
ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for
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
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.

Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was
pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home
until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for
all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a
mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was
totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust
bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT
THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER
PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY
DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON
HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU
WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS

65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang
Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of
2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took
me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed
manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original
data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The
stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color
to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory
color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.

FIRST OFF I KNOW THE VID IS LONG BUT WATCH ALL OF IT, IT'S WORTH IT. This
is the first, of my videos of my Knight Rider Replica. It all started with
a 1982 Firebird Trans Am that I found sitting beside a guys barn. It was
there for a year or so but was previously stored for the past 23 years in a
garage. The project is going great so far I am starting with the exterior
first as the interior needs no restoration with the car only having 48,000
miles on it and is mint inside. This summer I hope to get the KITT nose and
The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running.
After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873,
Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen
(or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first
purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstra├če in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German
patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.
My Parents' First Car - 1948 Plymouth convertible
Joe and Beverly Smith were the proud owners of a 1948 Plymouth Convertible
until they had to sell it when Joe was drafted to serve in the Korean War.
As a 60th wedding anniversary gift, their son, Joel, found a '48 Plymouth
through Craigslist fixed it up and gave it to them as a surprise. The car
will now forever stay in the family and be passed down through generations.
