1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20
years untouched in Wasilla, Alaska. The tags expired in 1989. It has the
original Overhead Cam Inline Six Engine. Before starting it we put oil down
the cylinders, primed the oil system, changed the oil and replaced the Cap,
Rotor, Plugs, and Points. A Complete restoration is planned for the
Europe's fastest car: 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am
This highly modified 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am has done a 407,134 km/h
(253 mph) top speed run in Germany, officialy making it the fastest street
legal car in Europe. Soon, it will come to the USA to beat the world record
of 256 mph set by the SSC Ultimate Aero!

1969 Pontiac Firebird 428, 400+ Horsepower - SEE OTHER VIDS!
Hey, for those who wondered about the gauge setup.....
I got them from Equus. You can probably find them at Autozone, Advance, or
O'Reilly auto parts. As you know, the standard gauges in the stock Firebird
suck. The big one on the right has the oil pressure, water temp, and
"Generator" power. Well, since I wanted an RPM guage, I found one that fit
perfect in that hole. I used Urethane to hold it in place. The Speedo Gauge
was easy to find and fit well also. You may have to cut some of the speedo
cable end off in order to fit on the back of the guage. It is the screw-in
type, and the Firebird had the clip on style.
I bought a complete set for the other guages... Oil, Water, and Battery. I
installed them into some 1/4 board material and covered with black leather
to match interior. It fit where the old A/C controls were and since I
removed the A/C there was no need for the controls. I installed a toggle
switch in the dash where the cigarette lighter was that operates the blower
fan for a heater. That way I still have defrost. If it gets hot in there,
you can buy a valve to put on the heater hoses for use during the summer.
It gets hot in the car with all that hot water running through the heater
Interior Specs: All windows except front have been tinted 20%, new black
carpet, headliner, front/rear door panels, dashpad, Carbon Fiber Leather
seats, All new after-market dash gauges, Hurst Ratchet shifter, Kenwood
5032 CD player with Sirius/XM Satellite radio, and DUB 400watt rear chrome
speakers. I covered the plastic box around the Hurst shifter the same as
the center gauge set with black leather.
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with an 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.

1976 Pontiac Trans Am with 455 testing out the new engine
In car video of a 1976 Pontiac Trans Am with a 455 in it. This has one of
the comp cams extreme 276 cams in it. Probably the most potent cam I have
used in any of my pontiac engines and still maintained excellent street
manners. Unfortunately, one of the rod bearings did not hold up as well.
The purpose of these runs was to try to get the car to blow up if it was
going to. It has a slight noise in it that I couldn't figure out. Wound up
being top rod bearing on number 7. Was torn down never to be assembled
again. Car was awesome though. Sold to Volo auto sales in Chicago. They
painted it and sold it as a 50th anniversary clone car for $20k more than
they paid me for it.
PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
