Muscle Car Of The Week Video #2: 1969 Plymouth Road Runner A12 MCOTW

This week, we have a special car for Mopar fans from the Brothers Collection. This is the very first 1969 Plymouth Road Runner A12 446 Pack ever built! This was the pilot car used by Chrysler to promote the A 12 Roadrunner package, and it has been called the "Wayward Beeper". Its significant history is bolstered by an appearance in Super Stock Magazine, where it was tested and tuned by legendary speed-shifter Ronnie Sox. This car features the 390 hp 440 V8 with 3 2 barrel carburetors, and A833 four-speed transmission, 4.10:1 rear gears, and a stripped-down interior. This very car has gone 12.91 seconds in the quarter mile, leading Chrysler to call it the fastest A12 ever built! You can guess next week's Muscle Car Of The Week on our Facebook page!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #3: 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 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 styling elements.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #4: 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS 396 Z16
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com https://www.facebook.com/pages/Muscle-Car-Of-The-Week/155673761263376 This week, The Brothers Collection brings us a pristine 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS396 "Z16" in Rally Red with a White interior! The SS396 featured a 375 horsepower L37 396 cubic-inch V8, which was very similar to the Corvette's L78 396, although it ran a hydraulic cam and different intake causing a lower horsepower rating. However, the 4-speed Z16 package cars ran low 14's inthe quarter mile in stock trim all day long. These cars were also unique in the sense that they all featured nearly every optional upgrade in the standard package... they all had tilt wheel, 4-speaker AM / FM stereo, deluxe rear seat belts, dash mounted clock, 160 MPH speedometer, in-dash tach, and the Muncie 4-speed with console. Outside, they wore special fender-mounted SS badges, had unique rear trim, and rolled with mag-wheel inspired wheelcovers. Chevrolet made 201 Z16 package '65 Malibu SS cars in 3 colors, and this Rally Red version is one of an estimated 65 remaining today.

The Correct Way To Pour Engine Oil From A Bottle Video V8TV
It seems that nearly every photograph, commercial, and TV show shows people pouring engine oil with the bottle turned the wrong way. It may seem trivial, but when used properly, the smart design of an oil bottle will prevent glugging and spilling.
