We decided to install some hood pins my sons 1987 Pontiac Trans Am project car. The hood took a pretty good hit from a deer and we were a bit worried about the latch mechanism. Also, my son has always wanted a car with hood pins anyway. He still may replace the factory hood with a fiberglass hood, but we can just drill it out and reuse our same pins. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I thought we'd demonstrate how the B&M Megashifter works in regular and
ratchet shifting modes. We used our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am to demonstrate
just how well it functions. This is basically the same way that most
ratchet type shifters operate. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for
1965 Shelby AC Cobra Replica
I thought you might like a look at this 1965 Shelby AC Cobra replica. It's
looking really sharp in that red with the white striping. It's powered by a
strong running 302 Ford V8 with an Edelbrock 4 bbl, aluminum intake, and
headers. All the power is being sent through a five-speed manual trans to a
posi rear. It has an all black interior with custom gauges, wood rimmed
wheel, and more. On the exterior, you'll also notice the chrome roll hoop
and the racing style fuel filler. I hope you find it interesting...thanks
for taking a look!

132663 / 1978 Pontiac Trans Am SE
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6nenvtw
All original from its Hurst T-tops down to its factory Exhaust and white letter tires, this completely
documented 16,800 mile 1978 Trans Am Special Edition has been stored in a
climate controlled facility all of its life and has all the right stuff you
have been looking for.
Assembled at GM's Norwood Ohio manufacturing facility in December of 1977,
this pristine Special Edition Trans Am was delivered to Hansord Pontiac
Company in Minneapolis Minnesota and purchased on January 10th 1978 by the
same dedicated owner that would keep it for close to 33 years. Today, the
car presents as practically brand new with a spectacular coat of original
GM code 19 Starlight Black paint that covers 100% original body panels
which are as solid and straight as the day they left the showroom floor.
Under the hood you'll find this Trans Ams all original 6.6 liter W72 V8
which was the largest muscle car engine you could buy in 1978. Thanks to
government mandated emissions standards, performance had almost been
legislated out of existence, and that left the Trans Am suffering a bit of
an identity crisis. By utilizing smaller "6X" heads from a 350 and a
revised camshaft, the W72 created higher compression and successfully
reversed almost a decade of declining horsepower numbers. At the
top of the motor, an original Rochester 4 barrel carburetor sits under the
cars awesome shaker scoop. Below that carburetor, original GM corporate
blue paint coats the entire block and original Exhaust manifolds send Exhaust into a high performance factory Exhaust system. All the hard parts around the
motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and air conditioning hanging on the
fire wall are factory original; and as expected tags, markings and stamps
are just where they should be from the date coded core support to the gold
painted cowl tag.
At the bottom of this Trans Am, a solid and clean all original
undercarriage tells the story of years of excellent maintenance and low
miles. Behind the motor, an original turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic
transmission sends power to the cars original 10 bolt rear end which still
retains its original metal maintenance tag. The original Trans Am
suspension, which includes power steering, thicker sway bars, better shocks
and stiffer springs combines with power front disc brakes and rear drums to
provide quick stops and great handling. The car even still carries its
ORIGINAL power Boosting dual Exhaust system which barks out a deep vintage
sound that most modern Flowmaster and Dynomax mufflers simply can't
duplicate. All of the cars hardware and bushings appear to be in good shape
and out back, a new stainless fuel tank is solid and leak free. At the
corners, original aluminum Pontiac snow flake wheels wear the cars ORIGINAL
225/70 Uniroyal White Letter tires and are adorned with Special Edition
exclusive gold paint and 'gold bird' center caps.
Open this Trans Ams massive black doors and you'll find the cars original
optional velour interior that sports Special Edition exclusive gold trim.
The cars original seats are firm, crisp and look every bit as nice and rich
as their velour name implies. Below the seats, the cars black carpet which
has been carefully protected by factory rubber floor mats, displays no
fading or unraveling at all. Between the seats a silver trimmed black
console houses a storage bin behind the cars automatic shifter, and above
the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight around the cars Hurst
T-tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned gold
dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and air
conditioning and the cars original Delco-GM AM/FM stereo. At the sides of
the seats, pitch black door panels feature pristine stainless and chrome
handles for both the doors and windows. Connecting the driver to the road
is a correct gold steering wheel with a black rim and a correct gold
screaming chicken horn button that perfectly matches the cars correct gold
screaming chicken shift knob.
If you're in the market for a kick ass Trans Am that is the quintessential
late 70s American muscle car; here it is. Grab it fast and thank us in ten
years as you watch its value climb!

"Y-Gen 3rd Gen" Pontiac Trans Am V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com/forum - 16 year old kids are in a tough spot these
days. We're not talking about the pressures of daily life and all that
B.S.; we're referring to the fact that the kids who are into cool cars
usually don't have the cash or the ability to get their mitts on a cool
ride. Add to that un-sympathetic parents, and you've got millions of high
schoolers rollin' beat up civics or other cheap junk. Dale Schwartz has a
leg up, however, with his new project they're calling the Y-Gen 3rd-Gen.
It's a Trans Am that's a full 7 years older than Dale, but he was able to
build a car he wanted the way he wanted.
