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/

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.

http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! 1969 Pontiac Firebird History The Pontiac Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002. The Firebird was introduced the same year as the automaker's platform-sharing model, the Chevrolet Camaro. The first generation Firebirds had a characteristic Coke bottle styling. Unlike its cousin, the Chevrolet Camaro, its bumpers were integrated into the design of the front end and its rear "slit" taillights were inspired by the Pontiac GTO. Both a two-door hardtop and a convertible were offered through the 1969 model year. The 1969 model received a major facelift with a new front end design made of an Endura bumper housing the headlights and grilles. The instrument panel and steering wheel were revised. The ignition switch was moved from the dashboard to the steering column with the introduction of GM's new locking ignition switch/steering wheel. VIN 223379U100518 This beautiful Firebird runs nice and strong. It came out of Michigan and has had a body off rebuild. The car has never been races, but is a very fun driver that gets the looks! It has won several 1st place trophies and awards in its class at local car shows.

'67 Crusher Camaro vs '70 Super Bee 1,500-Mile Burnout-Fest! - Roadkill Episode 19
On this episode of Roadkill, it's Freiburger in the Super Bee versus Finnegan in the '67 Camaro as the guys make the trip from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City and back to go race at the Midnight Drags at Rocky Mountain Raceways in hopes of running the Bee on Nitrous for the first time since the Hemi was installed. Which car will work best over 1,500 miles of mayem in three days? The 700hp, blown Crusher Camaro is HOT ROD's longest-term project car, surviving 20 years at the magazine. David Freiburger's 675hp Hemi 1970 Dodge Super Bee is his first car, having been with him 30 years. Both cars suffer from magazine-project-car syndrome: getting brief spurts of attention followed by long periods of neglect. For the first time in years, both cars were running and driving at the same time. The Crusher Camaro is a '67 model that was purchased for $700 in 1994 during California's car-crushing program; it was rescued from the parking lot of a junkyard where it was about to be handed in for crushing. It's been through a number of engines in its time at HOT ROD magazine, and the most recent is a 489ci bi-block (4.280 bore, 4.250 stroke) with 9.3:1 compression. It has a small, 224-at-0.050 Comp hydraulic roller cam, Holley oval-port heads, and a Weiand 8-71 Supercharger with two Holley 850HP carbs. The engine makes 700 hp and 720 lb-ft on 5 psi Boost, but is tame enough to drive anywhere. The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E that's really awesome, and the Ford 9-inch is loaded with 3.50 gears. The car is styled with Center Line Auto Drags and a nose-high stance to look like a street machine of the early ¹80s. It has run 10.60 at 125 in the quarter-mile in the same trim seen in this video. Freiburger's ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is powered by a 10:0:1-compression, 484ci Hemi with ported iron cylinder heads and a Comp solid roller camshaft. It also uses a Holley Dominator carb on a custom dual-plane intake manifold by Dick Landy, whose shop built the long-block in 1995. It made 675 hp on the engine Dyno, but in the car is has smaller headers, fairly restrictive Exhaust, and a mechanical fan that pull it down to around 600. The trans is a Gearstar 727 Torqueflite backed by a Gear Vendors under/overdrive, and the Strange 60 rearend has 3.73 gears (a little too high for the natuarally aspirated combo). The car weights 4,050 pounds with the driver, and has run 11.80 at 118 mph on the motor. Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/RoadkillShow, http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/hotrodmagazine Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertible. 1 of 8 In the world (Read Description!)
Yes! This is only One of eight! No typo! $1 MILLION + worth. For this vehicle PROOF ITS 1 of 8: THIS SITE USED FOR DATA! NOT MY WORDS! http://www.classicalpontiac.com/members/2/4.html "FACT: The '69 Trans Am was introduced to the press on December 8th, 1968 at Riverside Raceway in Riverside, CA. One of the cars given to the press to test was the pre production T/A that was painted Pallidium Silver (no stripes). Look closely at the pictures of the silver T/A and you will notice the hood and air extractors have very sharp, hard lines, more in line with the original design sketches. The March 1969 issue of Hot Rod Magazine stated the hood on this silver car was fiberglass. Note: The silver T/A was also a RA IV car. (source for the above date was Jim Wangers' book Glory Days) FACT: Pontiac made a total of 697 '69 Trans Ams (coupes and convertibles) FACT: 8 of those were convertibles, 689 were coupes. (As a side note that really has nothing to do with this, there was also a '69 Firebird convertible used on the television program "I Dream Of Genie" that had what appeared to be a variation of the '69 T/A hood, side air extractors mounted on the quarter panels and a T/A style rear spoiler. The car was bright green. I don't believe this to be a real T/A but found it interesting that PMD would send out a Firebird mocked up similar to a T/A for a TV show. Maybe they didn't. Maybe it was customized elsewhere.). FACT: All 8 convertibles were RA III cars. FACT: Of the 8 convertibles, 4 were automatics, and 4 were manuals transmission cars. (Side Note: It has been documented that of the 8 convertible Trans Ams made, 7 are known to exist, most of those in good condition. The 8th is still a mystery. While I have read that the 8th has been located many different times, that seems to just be a rumor at this point. There was a blurb in Pontiac Enthusiast Magazine several years ago that they believed they had found this 8th convertible T/A in Western Canada and that they'd have more info at a later date. However, I have never heard any more about that. So until the 8th shows up in pictures somewhere and is proved documented to be the 8th, I would assume the location of the 8th is still unknown.) FACT: Trans Ams were built at two different assembly plants: Norwood, Ohio (N) and Van Nuys, California (L) (coded L for Los Angeles). The number of Trans Ams built by each assembly plant and block code are as follows: NORWOOD: WQ: 506 (14 3-speeds, 492 4-speeds, including 4 convertibles) YW: 117 ( including 4 convertibles) WH: 45 XN: 9 VAN NUYS: WQ: 14 (1 3-speed, 13 4-speeds) YW: 5 WH: 1 (information from the book "Pontiac Muscle Car Performance, 1955-1979, by Pete McCarthy) FACT: The original design for the Trans Am was actually proposed by the famous auto customizer, Gene Winfield. Working with artist Harry B. Bradley, they approached Pontiac in the fall of 1967 with sketches (I hope to have these sketches posted here soon). Since he consulted for the model company AMT, Winnfield knew 18 months ahead of time what the 1969 Firebirds would look like. He and Bradley proposed the hood, scoops, air extractors and deck lid spoiler that pretty much ended up on the Trans Am (other than a few minor alterations). Winfield called his car the "Can Am" (is this where Pontiac later got the name Can Am from?) and his proposed color scheme was chartreuse and gold instead of white and blue. All of the items Winfield and Bradley proposed were bolt-on and functional.
