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.
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.
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.

1967 Pontiac Firebird 20 Year Cold Start
We work on starting my new 67 Firebird after it has been sitting for 20

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
