Brian's Pro Street 1969 Firebird
A quick walk around plus a few other clips about a 1969 Pontiac Firebird
brought up to Canada a few years back. The car is from Louisiana, built to
its present state by the owner down in that state. It takes a lot of
concentration and constant attention to drive this car as it is quite
powerful, and the tires are not conductive to the most straight of
traction. The rear tires,especially, being wide and very soft in rubber
texture, and having very 'wrinkly' sidewalls, can make for a vehicle which
feels very twitchy on the road. So much to the fact hitting the
accelerator at the wrong time could very easily put the car sideways. Even
when you are going in a straight line. Driving with prudence is so
important. The paint was anything but shiny as you see in the clip when
the car was first brought home. It needed a lot of wet sanding and
polishing to come out looking as it does now. The engine is a very much
modified Pontiac 400- cubic inch V-8 hooked up to a fully manual turbo 350 with a 'reverse type' valve body. This
means there is no automatic shifting feature in the unit. and '1' is right
after neutral, then '2nd ' is the next notch back, and finally '3rd'. This
is done for drag racing purposes to ensure you do not run the chance of
grabbing neutral in a race. Stock automatics run the shift lever the
opposite way after neutral. This Pro-Street designed car has all the nice
stuff in it including a roll cage ( the side bars beside the passenger and
driver are removed for street driving), a fuel tank in the trunk, and
4-wheel disc brakes. The rear axle assembly is some reinforced and built-
up unit with a cast aluminum cover sporting a center section girdle to help
keep the rear end in one piece.

1969 Firebird Trans Am
I wasn't expecting this guy to drive up as I was shooting other cars at
Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, but I'm glad he did, and I'm glad he
left the engine on long enough to capture that 303 Exhaust note.
This is the original Trans Am, before the second generation went all flaps
and vents and giant spoilers and shaker hoods and screaming chickens and
"Smokey and the Bandit".
White with blue stripes and blue interior. Pure and simple.

1977 Dodge Colt Hemi Comparison Ford Pinto Chevy Vega Chevette Datsun B210 Promo
This is a 1977 Dodge Promotional film which could have been viewed in any
of the Dodge Dealers across America that had the Dodge Demo Screen. The
Dodge Colt was a range of cars built by Mistubishi. This was in 1977, one
full year before the Dodge Omni was introduced. This was all Dodge and
Chrysler had for the subcompact Market. These were also sold in Canada and
Puerto Rico as Plymouths. This is a film that compares the Colt and it's
features to the Vega, Pinto, Chevette and Datsun B210.
