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 #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

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!

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!

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

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.

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

sleeve bringing a 2010 Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Trans Am
