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!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #3: 1970 1/2 Pontiac Trans Am Ram Air IV
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

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.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #21: 1970 Dodge Super Bee 440 6-Pack
This 1970 Dodge Super Bee is not the car you want to drive if you don't
like attention. This Top Banana Yellow example from the Brothers
Collection is not only visibly noticible thanks to the bright color and
white interior and stripes, but the 440 6-Pack under the hood causes a stir
on the street anywhere you go!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #43: 1961 Ford Starliner Video
The world was a different place back in 1961, and the space-age styling of
the 1961 Ford Starliner tells the tale. This car technically pre-dates the
Muscle Car era, but the available 401 HP 390 made it a screamer on the
street and stock car tracks. This week's car has been up-fitted with a 427
cube V8 topped with 3 2-barrel carbs, a setup you could get in 1963, but it
looks right at home in the bay of this Starliner. There are many neat
styling features on this car, including the thin-pillared sloping rear
glass with zinc plated and polished stars, the subtitle tail fins, and the
twin "rocket Exhaust" tail lights.
It's one car from the Brothers Collection that is out of this world!
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #32: 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 429
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek - Back in 1969, Ford was ready
to roll out a new engine to compete in NASCAR - the BOSS 429. This was a
semi-hemispherical headed V8 designed to compete with Dodge's 426 Hemi that
was leading the pack on the NASCAR super speedways. NASCAR rules say that
you need to sell at least 500 copies of a "street" version of any
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #24: 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A Panther Pink
Dodge Muscle Cars came in a wide variety of crazy colors back in the day...
come to think of it, they do now, too! This 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A is a
great example of an awesome car in an over-the-top color. The Challenger
T/A was the Trans Am race car for the street. It featured a beefed-up 340
V8 with a stronger block, special cam, free-breathing heads, and the super
cool 6-Pack triple carb setup. The car had racy styling cues from bumper to
bumper, and although they claimed 290 HP, these were potent performers
embarrassing many cars with much more under the hood. However, the most
notable feature on this example from the Brothers Collection is the paint
code FM3, Panther Pink.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #9: 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Factory Sunroof
This beautiful 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 looks great thanks to
its pristine restoration and soothing Gulfstream Aqua color, and the S-Code
390 4-speed Toploader combo makes it a blast to drive. However, one of the
most unique features of this Mach 1 is the factory installed steel
sunroof... an option that was not offered on the '69 Mustang. It is one of 2 built with
the opening roof, and it's another excellent example of the diversity of
outstanding Muscle Cars in the Brothers Collection. Watch the video to
