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
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!
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!
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!
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.

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!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

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.
