1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertibles Video 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals MCACN V8TV
http://www.mcacn.com - The 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals (MCACN) show accomplished the seemingly impossible task of bringing 6 of the original 8 1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertibles together in one display! These cars are among the "Holy Grail" muscle cars, as not only are they super rare, they are all very cool. Four were automatics, four 4-speeds, all had Ram Air III 400 V8s under the hood, along with the white paint scheme with blue stripes. Other exterior cues include the steel Ram Air hood, the rear deck spoiler, and the air extractors on the fenders. Here, Nick Scavo chats with Charley Lillard about this amazing display at this outstanding show.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #41: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 427 Roadster
The Corvette changed for 1968, evolving into the 3rd generation for the
American sports car. The sleek new styling looks like full speed standing
still, a trait shared by most Corvettes. This week's Muscle Car Of The Week
could be considered the top-gun of all '68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+
HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the "L88". L88 cars featured not
only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements...
the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed
transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8. The LeMans Blue
roadster in the Brothers Collection is one of only 80 built in '68, and it
might look like a nice Sunday cruiser, but it was a thinly disguised race
car sold to the public!
Bill Bagshaw 1970 Hemi Challenger - 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals MCACN Video Coverage V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals is a great
place to see restored and surviving historic race cars, and the Red Light
Bandit built and raced by Bill Bagshaw is a great example. This 1970 Dodge
Challenger helped pioneer Pro Stock, and although it has been restored, the
car retains most of the unique performance tricks that made it such an
awesome performer. From the HEMI V8 under the hood to the innovative
tube chassis inside, this car was a potent performer built by a fascinating
1962 Ford Galaxie 500 Post Coupe - 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals MCACN Video Coverage V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 is unique for several
reasons, in addition to it's amazing condition. Under the hood is a 406
V8 topped with 3 2-barrel carbs, and it's backed by a 4-speed transmission.
Not the usual combo by any measure. However, it's the car's Post Coupe
framed windows - and power window option - that couple with the hot
driveline to make a really unique Ford! As seen at the 2012 Muscle Car &
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #23: 1979 Pontiac Trans Am 10th Anniversary 111 Miles
1979 marked the 10th anniversary of the Pontiac Trans Am. In this episode,
we spotlight a 1979 10th Anniversary Trans Am from the Brothers Collection
that shows a mere 111 miles on the odometer! This one features the Pontiac
400 V8 and four-speed transmission, and is the very same car owned by
Pontiac advertising executive Jim Wangers and featured in the movie "Joe
Dirt". Although some consider this car to be overdone with its five color
hood bird, two-tone paint, & silver interior, we really like the styling of
this 1 of 1817 made Anniversary edition.

1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertible. 1 of 8 In the world (Read Description!)
Yes! This is only One of eight! No typo! $1 MILLION + worth. For this
PROOF ITS 1 of 8:
THIS SITE USED FOR DATA! NOT MY WORDS!
"FACT: The '69 Trans Am was introduced to the press on December 8th, 1968
at Riverside Raceway in Riverside, CA. One of the cars given to the press
to test was the pre production T/A that was painted Pallidium Silver (no
stripes). Look closely at the pictures of the silver T/A and you will
notice the hood and air extractors have very sharp, hard lines, more in
line with the original design sketches. The March 1969 issue of Hot Rod
Magazine stated the hood on this silver car was fiberglass. Note: The
silver T/A was also a RA IV car. (source for the above date was Jim
Wangers' book Glory Days)
FACT: Pontiac made a total of 697 '69 Trans Ams (coupes and convertibles)
FACT: 8 of those were convertibles, 689 were coupes. (As a side note that
really has nothing to do with this, there was also a '69 Firebird
convertible used on the television program "I Dream Of Genie" that had what
appeared to be a variation of the '69 T/A hood, side air extractors mounted
on the quarter panels and a T/A style rear spoiler. The car was bright
green. I don't believe this to be a real T/A but found it interesting that
PMD would send out a Firebird mocked up similar to a T/A for a TV show.
Maybe they didn't. Maybe it was customized elsewhere.).
FACT: All 8 convertibles were RA III cars.
FACT: Of the 8 convertibles, 4 were automatics, and 4 were manuals
transmission cars. (Side Note: It has been documented that of the 8
convertible Trans Ams made, 7 are known to exist, most of those in good
condition. The 8th is still a mystery. While I have read that the 8th has
been located many different times, that seems to just be a rumor at this
point. There was a blurb in Pontiac Enthusiast Magazine several years ago
that they believed they had found this 8th convertible T/A in Western
Canada and that they'd have more info at a later date. However, I have
never heard any more about that. So until the 8th shows up in pictures
somewhere and is proved documented to be the 8th, I would assume the
location of the 8th is still unknown.)
FACT: Trans Ams were built at two different assembly plants: Norwood, Ohio
(N) and Van Nuys, California (L) (coded L for Los Angeles). The number of
Trans Ams built by each assembly plant and block code are as follows:
WQ: 506 (14 3-speeds, 492 4-speeds, including 4 convertibles)
YW: 117 ( including 4 convertibles)
WQ: 14 (1 3-speed, 13 4-speeds)
(information from the book "Pontiac Muscle Car Performance, 1955-1979, by
FACT: The original design for the Trans Am was actually proposed by the
famous auto customizer, Gene Winfield. Working with artist Harry B.
Bradley, they approached Pontiac in the fall of 1967 with sketches (I hope
to have these sketches posted here soon). Since he consulted for the model
company AMT, Winnfield knew 18 months ahead of time what the 1969 Firebirds
would look like. He and Bradley proposed the hood, scoops, air extractors
and deck lid spoiler that pretty much ended up on the Trans Am (other than
a few minor alterations). Winfield called his car the "Can Am" (is this
where Pontiac later got the name Can Am from?) and his proposed color
scheme was chartreuse and gold instead of white and blue. All of the items
Winfield and Bradley proposed were bolt-on and functional. (Info from the
book The Fabulous Firebird by Michael Lamm)

357 V8 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Update
We thought it was time for an update on my son's 1987 Pontiac Trans Am.
Yesterday, we brought home a nice 357 Chevy small block that is going to
take the place of the original 305 TPI. It should offer a substantial bump
in power, thanks to 52 more cubic inches, and a cam with a bit more lift.
We're also going to switch over to a carb just for the sake of simplicity.
We'll probably go back to fuel injection when we do an LS swap in the
future. We'll have many more videos on this project in the near future.
Thanks for watching!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #32: 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 429
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek - Back in 1969, Ford was ready
to roll out a new engine to compete in NASCAR - the BOSS 429. This was a
semi-hemispherical headed V8 designed to compete with Dodge's 426 Hemi that
was leading the pack on the NASCAR super speedways. NASCAR rules say that
you need to sell at least 500 copies of a "street" version of any engine
you planned to race, so Ford needed to build a civilian BOSS 429 for the
general public. The interesting part is that Ford interpreted the rule book
and noticed that the engine didn't have to be in the same car raced... so
they could stuff a BOSS 429 into a Mustang rather than the Torinos being
used in NASCAR. The result was a super-bad Mustang with a custom-installed 375
HP NASCAR engine under the hood. From the Brothers Collection.

Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 4 - Removing the Engine - 305 TPI to 357 Carbed
This is the fourth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series.
This is my son's first project car and we're having a lot of fun with it.
In this video, you get to see how we removed the old 305 TPI engine. In
the days ahead, we'll be cleaning up the engine bay and getting rid of any
unnecessary wiring or equipment. Then we'll be ready to drop in the new
357 small block V8. I hope you find our project interesting...thanks for
