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.

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 &
1 of 3 1969 Hurst Olds Convertibles With Linda Vaughn Video MCACN V8TV
Http://www.v8tvshow.com/ - Back in 1969, Hurst built 3 1969 Olds Cutlass
convertibles to showcase their shifters, and they brought the lovely Linda
Vaughn along to add to the over-the-top presentation. One burned, one is
accounted for, but the 3rd went missing. These Oldsmobiles are far beyond
the regular 442, as they featured a 455 cube big block Olds under the hood,
backed by a Muncie 4-Speed shifted by - of course - a Hurst shifter. The
white and gold paint scheme was wild, but it's impact was not even close to
the giant a hurst shifter mounted on the trunk mounted platform modeled by
Ms. Golden Shifter Linda Vaughn! Recently, this car was discovered as
being one of the 3 authentic cars, and was treated to a spectacular
restoration by Level 1 Restorations and unveiled to the public by Linda
herself at the 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals. The iconic Olds is
ready once again to wow the crowds at dragstrips with Linda waving to the
crowds from the platform and giant Hurst shifter!
1962 Zintsmaster Impala Drag Car - 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals MCACN Video Coverage V8TV
"Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday!" was a common theme in the 1960s as
stock-looking race cars increased brand loyalty and drove up sales. Back
in '62, Zintsmaster Chevrolet campaigned this 409-powered Impala, complete
with ALUMINUM front end, as a way to go racing and bring people into their
dealership. Today, the car still exists in nearly the same state as it was
back in '62, with only 5500 miles on the clock and the original front
tires! It's just one more piece of American Muscle Car history to be seen
at the 2012 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #70: 1970 Dick Harrell 454 Camaro
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - Some Muscle Cars are cool because they
came with the goods from the factory, while others are standouts because of
modifications they received after leaving the line. In this case, this
1970 Camaro started
life as a 350 powered SS car, but a trip to the Dick Harrell Performance
Center was all it needed to be a monster Muscle Car built by one of the
legends in Chevrolet racing. Add to the pedigree the fact that the car is
an unrestored survivor with approximately 6000 miles on the clock, and
you've got a winner in every way possible. It's one of only a handful
built, and it still has the power to burn the hides at will. There are
many souped-up cars in the Brothers Collection, but this Harrell car is one
of the coolest!

One of just 689 Trans Am coupes built In 1969, this extensively restored
Ram Air III model shows just 44,000 original miles. With a classic look and
all the right options, this is one of the finest Ram Air III T/A's on the
Born at the Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility on September 17th, 1969,
this T/A lead a pampered life. Over 21 years of its existence were spent in
a private storage facility safe from the elements. Today, with an all
original body that's dressed in a glossy layer of correct GM code 50 Cameo
White basecoat, correctly re-stenciled Tyrol Blue racing stripes and
correctly placed Trans Am call-outs, it stands proud as a highly desirable
example of a milestone in Pontiac performance history.
All the correct parts are present including the new-for-'69 Endura nose
piece, twin scoop hood, simulated side vents and rear spoiler. All chrome
and stainless look factory fresh as does the glass work.
Lift that ducted hood and you'll find the original Pontiac 400 V8. Wearing
the correct casting number, date code and partial VIN, this real deal 400
has been rebuilt to factory specs with the exception of the compression
ratio which has been lowered to accommodate lower octane gasoline. The
block is painted a proper coat of turquoise and topped with a Rochester
Quadrajet carburetor, Winters aluminum intake, and original "D" Exhaust port heads. The bay is 100% show ready
with correct finishes, reproduction hoses and a tagged Delco Energizer
Underneath the car, an immaculately restored undercarriage houses the
original Muncie M-20 four-speed manual transmission that sends power to the
original 10-bolt Safe-T-Trak rear end equipped with 3.55 gears. Suspension
retains its original double A-arm setup out front while rear leafs keep the
rear end planted. At the front, N41 power steering provides easy turns
while the JL2 power front disc and rear drum brakes provide modern stopping
power. At the corners, 14 inch GM Rally II wheels are wrapped in Goodyear
Inside, a correct GM code 200 blue vinyl interior contrasts well against
the white exterior. Re-covered bucket seats sit atop fresh carpet
underneath a flawless headliner. In the back, a rare folding rear seat
offers trunk access. From the driver's seat, the original steering wheel
sits in front of a clean original dash that features a speedometer as well
as an inclusive gauge that monitors fuel levels, oil pressure, generator
output and temperature. A wood applique delete sits where the factory clock
or optional stacked gauges would go. To the right, the Hurst shifter is
topped with a factory optioned 'wood' shift knob.
This T/A is backed by extensive documentation including owner history,
Pontiac Historical Society information, pictures of the car before
restoration and paperwork that covers most of the work performed on the

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!

If you missed the opportunity to take home our RKM Performance restored
SD-455 a few months ago, this badass Cameo Firebird is your second chance
to become king of the muscle car hill!
Assembled at GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility, and delivered to
John Kralovetz via Bill Mowbray Motors in Brownsville, Texas, this awesome
F2 Trans Am's factory correct appearance is simply spectacular. Thanks to
spending most of its life in the warm and dry climate of the Southwestern
United States, the car's rounded body was fairly straight when its
restoration began; and given that body's distinct lack of rust, it should
come as no surprise that panel gaps are excellent and fit feels rock solid.
Of course, by the looks of this Pontiac's super smooth finish, someone
must've spent weeks alone blocking and sanding every one of its panel in
hopes of forming a laser-straight showpiece. And once the car's correct
coat of Cameo White urethane was sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell,
decorated with correct Trans Am call-outs and crowned with a coveted
Screamin' Chicken hood decal, I'd say they definitely accomplished that
This car's highly detailed SD-455, which hangs a correct 490132 casting
number and a November (K) 11th (11) of 1972 (2) casting date behind a
correct XD engine stamp, has been bored .030 over, completely balanced and
fully rebuilt to all its showroom glory. At the top of that big engine, a
traditional Trans Am underhood induction system feeds fresh air to a
correct 4-barrel carburetor that's bolted to a correct Pontiac intake. That
intake sends a high octane air/fuel mixture into unique, high flow cylinder
heads which have been equipped with Crane 1.65 roller rockers, high quality
ARP rocker studs and traditional stamped steel valve covers. And those
heads utilize a nodular iron crankshaft, Clevite main bearings, Clevite rod
bearings, ARP Speedpro pistons and rings, and an NOS "Y" camshaft to create
rocket-like combustion. Spark for that combustion is provided by a
traditional points distributor which shoots fire through correct Packard TV
R Suppression wires. Waste from that combustion is handled by fully
restored Exhaust manifolds which roar
into a stainless true dual Exhaust
system. And heat from that combustion is controlled by a leak-free radiator
which is hooked to fresh hoses via correct tower clamps and a correct
plastic fan shroud.
Behind that monster motor a virtually indestructible GM turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission, which wears a
1973 (73) Super Duty-specific (P2Q) tag and a correct partial VIN, sends
power to a familiar 10 bolt Safe-T-Track rear end that does a great job on
both the back roads and the interstate. Below that stellar powertrain a
rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes power steering, thicker sway
bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power
front disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling.
At the center of the car, a power Boosting true dual Exhaust system utilizes an X-pipe crossover and
welded Magnaflow mufflers to bark out a deep, vintage roar. And all this
road ready hardware rolls on a restored set of Pontiac Rally II wheels
which spin proven 235/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around pristine arrowhead
In terms of interior décor, Pontiac's 70s team was firing on all eight
cylinders. The rebuilt custom bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every
bit as nice and rich as their name implies. Below those seats, like-new
carpet, which is carefully protected by thick rubber mats, displays no
fading or unraveling; and between those seats, a molded black console props
an enclosed storage bin behind a chrome shifter and a factory correct
8-track player. At the sides of the car, hard to find door panels hang
pristine chrome handles between chrome window cranks and full armrests. And
in front of the driver, an optional tilt steering column spins a black
Formula steering wheel around an engine turned instrument panel, sliders
for the car's climate system and a correct Delco AM radio.
If your definition of classic Detroit muscle is a highly accurate,
beautifully presented, meticulously crafted Pontiac, it's your lucky day!

This is the fourth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series.

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

Pontiac fans, have we got a treat for you! This properly restored 1969
Firebird convertible features a fresh 428, 4-speed trans, electric door
poppers and a killer paint job. This is a slam dunk of a drop-top cruiser
that's ready for the show field or the open road.
The quality work throughout the body is apparent. The beautiful champagne
colored paint is laid over a solid, straight, steel body. This car is super
clean, as you can see by the pictures. The gaps and margins are precise.
The door and trunk lips and jambs are solid, clean and rust free. The flame
details around the car are very well done, and not over the top. The chrome
around the grille and rear bumper is in great shape. It has all been buffed
to an eye-popping shine.
Mechanically, this car is the real deal. The 428 cubic inch engine runs
awesome. Underneath that polished aluminum Edelbrock intake are two
Edelbrock 4 barrel carbs. That's right, this baby has dual quads. There is
an MSD ignition, MSD coil and an MSD distributor. A chrome alternator, tach
adapter, Accel spark plug wires and more were included in the restoration.
Up front is a new radiator, flex fan and fan shroud. The engine bay is
exceptionally well detailed throughout, with a fresh coat of flat black
paint on the nose and inner fenders. A recent alignment, power steering and
power brakes make this drop top one smooth ride!
Underneath, it's just as nice. The Muncie 4-speed transmission feeds a 10
bolt 3:23 posi-traction rear end. There is a new gas tank, a new drive
shaft with new u-joints, polished traction bars and drum brakes out back.
The Exhaust system is in great shape
and is equipped with Glass Pack mufflers for a nice sounding rumble. The
floorboards and rockers are in excellent condition. Up front you will find
chrome headers, a sway bar and new shocks. The front suspension has had the
bushings and ball joints replaced in the last few years. There is a trans
cooler and a fresh rebuild on the starter as well. All of the steering is
tight and clean. Sitting at all four corners are Cooper GT tires
(2-45-60-15's out back and 2-15-70-15's up front) and American Racing
The black interior is very well done. The front bucket seats and the back
bench seat are both in near perfect condition and have seatbelts for
everyone. In between the front seats is the Hurst shifter. Check out that
beautiful wood steering wheel, which nicely matches the wood grain gauge
panel. The dash is in great condition as well. There are power windows,
electric door poppers for the doors and trunk, and a functional hood tach.
There is also an aftermarket column mounted tach. Door panels, carpets, and
the black vinyl convertible top, are all in excellent condition. Out back,
the trunk has a fresh mat and the shakers.
Calling this a nice car just doesn't do it justice. This is a gorgeous car
with an impeccable pedigree and a huge helping of performance thrown in
just for fun. This is an investment-grade automobile, and at this price,
you couldn't duplicate the restoration on this car. It's in a league of its
own among early Firebirds. Call today, because like its GTO cousin, this
one won't stay long! 7 Days a week 248-974-9513
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.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #3: 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
This week's Muscle Car Of The Week from The Brothers Collection is a
super-rare 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am, complete with the Ram Air IV 400 cube
V8 and Muncie 4-speed transmission!
1970 marked the second generation for GM's F body platform, and the company
made substantial improvements to the car over the '67-'69 versions. The
1970 1/2 models were longer and more spacious inside, and generally drove
more comfortably than the earlier cars. 1970 also marked the peak in
performance Muscle Cars, and the 1970 1/2 Trans Am was one of the top
performers. The Pontiac Trans Am came loaded with numerous performance
add-ons, such as upgraded suspension, brakes, Exhaust, and distinctive styling.
This particular Polar White Trans Am is among the most sought-after of all,
as it features the 370 HP Ram Air IV V8 engine and a Muncie 4-speed
transmission. The Ram Air IV engine was assembled with very tight
tolerances from the factory, making it as close to a hand-built racing
engine as you could buy from GM. The RAIV package started with a 4-bolt
main block, forged crank and pistons, and a high performance oil pump, but
the big difference was in the top half of the engine. The Ram Air IV heads
boasted 67cc chambers, 2.11" swirl-polished intake valves and 1.77" Exhaust valves, and large round Exhaust ports. The .520" lift RAIV cam had a
long 308 degree intake / 320 degree Exhaust duration and pulled air through an
aluminum dual-plane intake manifold. These parts sounded more like they
were hand-picked by a race engine builder than a factory offering, but
that's what makes the RAIV so special. They only made 88 of these cars,
59 were manuals and the other 29 came with automatics. It's one of the
few cars where both transmissions were offered and the manual outsold the
auto. Watch the video to learn more about this Pontiac Historical
Society documented correct '70 1/2 and its unique details like the original
2-tone blue seat covers, 1-year only Rally II wheels, and distinctive
