1969 Firebird Trans Am

I wasn't expecting this guy to drive up as I was shooting other cars at Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals, but I'm glad he did, and I'm glad he left the engine on long enough to capture that 303 Exhaust note. This is the original Trans Am, before the second generation went all flaps and vents and giant spoilers and shaker hoods and screaming chickens and "Smokey and the Bandit". White with blue stripes and blue interior. Pure and simple. You can see more pictures of it on my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26329029@N06/sets/72157628096278657/with/6382984169/

1969 Trans Am 1 owner barn find
I recently purchased this 1 owner 1969 Trans Am. It was parked in 1982 when the owner was transferred out of state. It is a Ram Air III 4 speed car. Other than some surface rust it really has no real rust to speak of. UPDATE: The car has been sold and now lives with its new owner in the midwest.

Test Driving 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400 V8 Four-Speed
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1969 Pontiac Firebird. It's powered by the 400 V8 4 bbl, backed by a four-speed manual trans. It really looks slick inside and out. It's equipped with the dual hood scoops, hood mounted tach, rally wheels, and very nice blue metallic paint. The interior has been completely restored and looks nearly new. These are excellent driving and handling cars. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011 ISRC: US-UAN-11-00709 Bouncy, Grooving 2010





Brian's Pro Street 1969 Firebird
A quick walk around plus a few other clips about a 1969 Pontiac Firebird brought up to Canada a few years back. The car is from Louisiana, built to its present state by the owner down in that state. It takes a lot of concentration and constant attention to drive this car as it is quite powerful, and the tires are not conductive to the most straight of traction. The rear tires,especially, being wide and very soft in rubber texture, and having very 'wrinkly' sidewalls, can make for a vehicle which feels very twitchy on the road. So much to the fact hitting the accelerator at the wrong time could very easily put the car sideways. Even when you are going in a straight line. Driving with prudence is so important. The paint was anything but shiny as you see in the clip when the car was first brought home. It needed a lot of wet sanding and polishing to come out looking as it does now. The engine is a very much modified Pontiac 400- cubic inch V-8 hooked up to a fully manual turbo 350 with a 'reverse type' valve body. This means there is no automatic shifting feature in the unit. and '1' is right after neutral, then '2nd ' is the next notch back, and finally '3rd'. This is done for drag racing purposes to ensure you do not run the chance of grabbing neutral in a race. Stock automatics run the shift lever the opposite way after neutral. This Pro-Street designed car has all the nice stuff in it including a roll cage ( the side bars beside the passenger and driver are removed for street driving), a fuel tank in the trunk, and 4-wheel disc brakes. The rear axle assembly is some reinforced and built- up unit with a cast aluminum cover sporting a center section girdle to help keep the rear end in one piece.
