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!
Trans Am Rev Under Overpass
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
Jordan and I finally got the Trans Am out for a little drive today. We
just had some new Firestone Firehawk tires put on and we were road testing
it. Jordan decided to rev it a little bit under the overpass, because he
thinks it sounds cool. We'll have a full update coming soon. Thanks for
Update - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
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 - First Start up, Cam Break In, and Wicked Idle
It'll be a little while before we can really see what it's got, but it sure
sounds mean. The cam break-in sure was nerve racking. We're sure glad to
have that part over with and hopefully things go smoothly from here on out.
We still have a lot of tuning to do on the car, but I know a bunch of you
were waiting to hear it run. The idle on that Howards cam definitely
sounds plenty healthy. From the little bit of accelerating we did from
2500 RPM to 4200 RPM, it feels like it's going to be a strong runner.
We're going to take it easy for a bit though and break it in well. Thanks
for watching, we'll have more updates coming soon!
Painting Pontiac Trans Am GunMetal Gray Plasti Dip
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
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
Trans Am 357 V8 First Test Drive Video After Engine Swap
This our first video of the Trans Am in action after the engine swap.
Obviously, the videos will be more interesting after we break the engine in
a bit more. Right now, we are still adjusting and tuning things. After the
engine has sufficient time to break in, we'll show you what it can really
do. Thanks for watching!

Project 240 Le Drift Car - Episode 1 | Getting Started
Basically, this video starts the second day after I bought the car. I
bought it as you see in the video with a welded diff, coilovers, mismatched
wheels and some other "goodies". The goal is to drift and build the car.
If the video seems a bit tedious it's because I wanted to include
everything I did to the car so that way people understand how much work
actually goes into these cars. Not like those videos that are 10 minutes
long and do a whole show car build and make everything seem like a piece of
cake and done over night.
Let me know what you think in the comments below :)

longest, too. This show has it all: a Mad-Max-vibe 1968 Dodge Charger built

wrenching, hilarious snafus, and cameo appearances by the Macho Grande from
episode 8, the '66 Buick Special convertible from a pre-Roadkill episode,
the ramp truck from episode 20, and the Fury from episode 22. Enjoy the
last Roadkill of 2013!

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.

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.
