General Lee Destroyed by Fire - Fifteen Years of Fun - Part 1
Visit www.mygenerallee.com for updates....
My wife is the major contributor to this inspirational video to rebuild the
General Lee. The fire started inside the house from a sump pump
malfunction. The pump kicked on when there was no water in the sump pump
hole and ran so long that it caught on fire. The fire then traveled up the
ejection pipe and caught the staircase that the pump was under on fire,
then spread into the hallway, living room, and garage. What the fire
didn't destroy, the intense heat and smoke did, including the entire second
level of the house. We were out of town when it started.
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

10 second "stock" 5.0 coupe!
First 10 second pass in my project coupe. Has a stock 5.0 intake modified,
10 hole wheels, and tail pipes. Yes it has other stuff done to it, but
appears mostly stock outside and under the hood.
For those that just don't get it and can't read the replies in the comments
section the car isn't bone stock. A bone stock foxbody Mustang won't run into the 10s even
with Nitrous. Mid 13s maybe with nothing
at all done. Add gear, slicks, Nitrous
and 11s are doable as I've done that. The stock in the title is in quotes.
It's built to appear stock inside, outside, and under the hood. The car is
currently getting a major overhaul and will hopefully run well into the 9s
while still appearing mostly stock..."stock". ;) The setup in this video
was: Edelbrock Performer 5.0 heads untouched, TMoss ported lower M3 casting
stock lower intake, (cut, ported, shortened stock 5.0 upper intake), 70mm
TB and EGR, 24lb injectors, Comp nx264 cam, 175HP shot Nitrous, decent suspension setup, 28x9 slicks,
4:10 gears, T5, and hard driving. It's a very basic setup that works.
