357 V8 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Update

We thought it was time for an update on my son's 1987 Pontiac Trans Am. Yesterday, we brought home a nice 357 Chevy small block that is going to take the place of the original 305 TPI. It should offer a substantial bump in power, thanks to 52 more cubic inches, and a cam with a bit more lift. We're also going to switch over to a carb just for the sake of simplicity. We'll probably go back to fuel injection when we do an LS swap in the future. We'll have many more videos on this project in the near future. Thanks for watching!

1987 Trans Am Launch and Fly-bys - Exhaust Sound Cherry Bomb Glasspack
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV This is just a video of a few fly-bys in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am. We wanted to show how the new Cherry Bomb glasspack sounds. It's 23 inches long and has 3 inch inlet/outlet. We thought we might as well do a quick little launch with some tire smoke while we were at it. Also had a brief appearance by an AC Shelby Cobra replica. Hope you find it interesting....thanks for watching! Exhaust setup is mid-length headers with 2.5 in collectors, flowmaster Y-pipe, 3 inch tubing, 3 inch ID Cherry bomb, and 3" tail pipe.





1970 Plymouth Cuda 426 Hemi Pistol Grip Four Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1970 Plymouth Cuda. It's powered by the awesome 426 Hemi, backed by a four-speed with the Pistol Grip Shifter. All that power is sent back to a Dana 60 rear with sure grip. This car was restored in 2010 and still looks like new today. Thanks for checking it out!

Trans Am Engine Swap Part 2 - 305 TPI to 357 Carbed Small Block V8
This is the first update on our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap. We'll be pulling the 305 TPI and replacing it with a carbed 357 small block V8. I'm sure much more progress will be made in the next vid. Thanks for watching along, we appreciate it!





Homemade Camera Crane Project and Jordans Trans Am
Jordan has been working on a new camera crane and I thought you might like a look at it. He still had some modifications to make, but I think it's coming along well. We decided to use the Trans Am to test it out a bit. Hopefully, with a little more practice, we'll get smoother with it. Thanks for taking a look!

1958 Plymouth Belvedere - Christine - Old Start - Cold Start on Christmas Day
Not REALLY a cold start but Christine's been sitting in the garage since early November because the weather was quite bad, plenty of snow a few weeks ago. We had a lot of rain during the last week so all the snow and the salt on the roads is gone. It's Christmas and we had a sunny and extraordinary warm day (15°C / 60°F), so I took Christine for her very first Christmas ride! Will she fire up or will she rather stay in her garage? If you're a fan of the movie "Christine" or 1957 / 58 Plymouths in general don't forget to join the International Christine Club. More information here: http://www.internationalchristineclub.net

3rd Gen Camaro - Fox-Body Mustang (the good, bad and the ugly)
Most car guys don't know the difference between the 230hp G92 optioned models, or the 5-speed and automatic models, or the 170hp lackluster TBI versions (not to be confused with TPI versions)... Mustang guys smoke the 170hp TBI models, as well as the "run of the mill" TPI automatic models, and believe they can do this to any and all. Well, not all 3rd Gen F-bodies are created equal. Optioned from the factory with the 230hp TPI (not TBI) engine, manual 5-speed tranny and 3.42 gears, these 3rd Gen F-body sleepers gave 5.0 Mustangs absolute hell. In 1990 the G92 option code became a full performance package rather than simply a rear axle option as in previous model years... GM also offered an answer to the Saleen Mustangs by way of option 1LE, which consisted of the G92 optioned without A/C and other creature comforts, and the addition of Corvette brakes and other road racing equipment. About the only way an IROC-Z Camaro could take out a 5.0L Mustang from this era was with the Tuned Port Induction and addition of these performance options: G92, 1LE, L98 or B4C. The TBI powered Camaro were not at all in the same league as the performance version TPI Camaro, or 5.0 Mustang, these 170hp TBI models were GM's economy de-tuned versions and were around 50-60 less horsepower versus the performance optioned TPI models. These non-performing models gave the 3rd Gen F-bodies a bad rep on the street... many think that these were the example of 3rd Gen F-bodies, when in fact, and unlike Ford, GM offered many models, with many engines, camshafts and rear-gear ratios... For more info on these rare optioned Camaro & Firebird, check out my website http://www.streetshowdriftdrags.com/Camaro.html or the Mustang guys can check out http://www.Mustang-Town.com Produced by John (Trae) King @ nedaCFilms For more details on the G92-optioned F-Bodies, check out: http://nedacfilms.hubpages.com/hub/Camaro-VS-Mustang-Revisited





1953 Buick Special 2 Dr 263 Straight Eight
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1953 Buick Special. It's still powered by the original Straight Eight engine.
