We decided to install some hood pins on our 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. We 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!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011

Shifting a Megashifter 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
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 watching!
Update - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Project
I just thought I'd show you the progress that we've made on the 1987 Trans Am project. Jordan spent hours buffing the paint out with rubbing compound and then wax. It definitely looks a whole lot better already. He also put a quick coat of paint on the spoiler and touched up some of the silver on the nose. We changed the oil and filter, put in some fresh gas, and it seems to be running really well. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
I've been looking for a car for my son for a while now. He wanted something that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a third generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to be a bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore and modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car is a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner already added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor and coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks, subframe connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a great base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

Pontiac Firebird trans am 1982 K2000 dragster de 800 chevaux, trophée ATD ,Aubenas, muscles cars
Jean Christophe DUVERNAY, pilote de dragster, discipline venu d'Amérique et très connu pour les Topfull et les burnout des ces monstres de puissances pouvant atteindre 3000 chevaux, piloté une Pontiac Firebird de 800 chevaux revu et corrigé pour l'occasion.
Vu lors de l'épreuve de Aubenas sur l'aérodrome de Lanas, manque de chance, une pluie incroyable obligea les organisateurs a annuler la course. Elle été organisée par le trophée ATD France. Pro ET N°507
Other General Motors vehicles had downsized in the late 1970s, and now it was Firebird's turn, shrinking to a 101-inch wheelbase and losing more than eight inches in overall length. The third-generation Firebird also measured an inch narrower and lost 500 pounds.
Split grilles sat inside air slots in the ultra-low nose, which featured electrically opened quartz-halogen headlamps. Every coupe had a contoured, frameless, all-glass hatch. Underneath, MacPherson struts (with inboard coil springs) served up front, while coils positioned by twin trailing links replaced the old-fashioned rear leaf springs, and a huge torque arm helped control axle "windup."
Trans Am buyers had a choice of two 305-cid V-8 engines: the 145-horsepower carbureted version, or an extra-cost edition breathing through Cross-Fire fuel injection, delivering 20 extra horses. Base price was $9,658, versus $7,996 for the entry-level (four-cylinder) model and $9,624 for the touring-ready V-6 S/E.
Inside, a redesigned full-length console sat integral with the dashboard. About 2000 Trans Ams had a new Recaro interior option with Parella cloth front bucket seats, hatch roof, and performance package. All were painted black with gold accents.
Quadratec: Daystar Hood Pin Kit
Daystar's Hood Pin Kits utilize Polyurethane grommets that help keep the hood isolated from its attachment points. Without these grommets, fiberglass hoods tend to crack around their mounting points. The grommet allows a certain amount of give that enables the fiberglass to flex as needed, yet still maintain a positive attachment. The kit includes a 5/8" diameter steel pin along with stainless steel fasteners to attach the grommet to the hood. A spring retaining clip rounds out the kit.
