early 2005 just after buying the car. tyres were on there way out so bought new ones and killed these. this vid is over 2 days and is edited from 53mins of video! car was stock.
it now has 1972 350 race heads ported etc, roller rockers, edelbrock intake, headman headers, egr removed, race cam, 3inch sidepipes, no silencers, air shocks on back, complete new brakes and suspension, etc etc. will be having another go at this soon! let the complaints about killing cars begin...lets be honest...probably from saxo driving chavs!

1978 Pontiac Trans Am Special Edition running ( Smokey & The Bandit )
My '78 Trans Am 400 CID 4 BBL V8, 200-R4 auto transmission with overdrive and a 12 bolt rear main wth Richmond 4:11 gears. Built in Norwood, OH, it was shipped to Atlanta, GA and spent all of her life there until I bought it in August '08. My son Spencer and I flew down to Atlanta and drove her back - boy was that a blast! The registration is the same as in Smokey & The Bandit. The rims were reconditioned perfectly and the brand new tires have less than 50 miles. The interior will be completely restored by the end of September (new vinyl seats, door panels and bezel are all that's needed).
John Storie's 78 Trans Am drag racing at Greer S.C.
John Storie's 78 Trans Am, shakedown run at Greer Dragway, South Carlina. Car is Sponsored by TransamPartsandMore.com. Attention Pontiac Fans, try to overlook the Pro Car we were paired with. This is the first run on our bracket motor, Pontiac 400, stock stroke, stock rods stock bore, no NOS. More to come. Thanks to all our friends and family for the support. This car was built in 6 weeks with the help of my friends at Mountain Automotive and Performance, Swannanoa North Carolina. Special thanks to Garry Ramsey and Brent Burnette. The Nitrous motor will be ready soon, that is the 1/4 mile motor, and we are still looking for sponsors, lord willing the car should run in the 9's on the 1/4 tracks. Anyone interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks Again, John Storie
