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. You can see more pictures of it on my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26329029@N06/sets/72157628096278657/with/63829 84169/

Just Chevrolet Vega Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip 11-30-2013
Just Chevrolet Vega Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip . So many Chevrolet vega drag racing on the 1/8 mile.The Chevrolet Vega is a subcompact automobile that was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors (GM) from 1970 to 1977. Available in two-door hatchback, notchback, wagon, and panel delivery body styles, all models were powered by an inline four-cylinder engine with a lightweight, aluminum alloy cylinder block. Variants included the Cosworth Vega, a short-lived limited-production performance model, introduced in March 1975. The Vega received praise and awards at its introduction, including 1971 Motor Trend Car of the Year.[1] Subsequently the car became widely known for a range of problems related to its engineering,[2] reliability,[3] safety,[4][5] propensity to rust, and engine durability. Despite a series of recalls and design upgrades, the Vega's problems tarnished both its own as well as General Motors' reputation. Production ended with the 1977 model year.
