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.

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!

One of just 689 Trans Am coupes built In 1969, this extensively restored
Ram Air III model shows just 44,000 original miles. With a classic look and
all the right options, this is one of the finest Ram Air III T/A's on the
Born at the Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility on September 17th, 1969,
this T/A lead a pampered life. Over 21 years of its existence were spent in
a private storage facility safe from the elements. Today, with an all
original body that's dressed in a glossy layer of correct GM code 50 Cameo
White basecoat, correctly re-stenciled Tyrol Blue racing stripes and
correctly placed Trans Am call-outs, it stands proud as a highly desirable
example of a milestone in Pontiac performance history.
All the correct parts are present including the new-for-'69 Endura nose
piece, twin scoop hood, simulated side vents and rear spoiler. All chrome
and stainless look factory fresh as does the glass work.
Lift that ducted hood and you'll find the original Pontiac 400 V8. Wearing
the correct casting number, date code and partial VIN, this real deal 400
has been rebuilt to factory specs with the exception of the compression
ratio which has been lowered to accommodate lower octane gasoline. The
block is painted a proper coat of turquoise and topped with a Rochester
Quadrajet carburetor, Winters aluminum intake, and original "D" Exhaust port heads. The bay is 100% show ready
with correct finishes, reproduction hoses and a tagged Delco Energizer
Underneath the car, an immaculately restored undercarriage houses the
original Muncie M-20 four-speed manual transmission that sends power to the
original 10-bolt Safe-T-Trak rear end equipped with 3.55 gears. Suspension
retains its original double A-arm setup out front while rear leafs keep the
rear end planted. At the front, N41 power steering provides easy turns
while the JL2 power front disc and rear drum brakes provide modern stopping
power. At the corners, 14 inch GM Rally II wheels are wrapped in Goodyear
Inside, a correct GM code 200 blue vinyl interior contrasts well against
the white exterior. Re-covered bucket seats sit atop fresh carpet
underneath a flawless headliner. In the back, a rare folding rear seat
offers trunk access. From the driver's seat, the original steering wheel
sits in front of a clean original dash that features a speedometer as well
as an inclusive gauge that monitors fuel levels, oil pressure, generator
output and temperature. A wood applique delete sits where the factory clock
or optional stacked gauges would go. To the right, the Hurst shifter is
topped with a factory optioned 'wood' shift knob.
This T/A is backed by extensive documentation including owner history,
Pontiac Historical Society information, pictures of the car before
restoration and paperwork that covers most of the work performed on the

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.

1969 Firebird 400 Ram Air III red convertible
My Fiero mechanic Dave Armstrong's other '69 Firebird 400 is this Ram Air
III convertible, also restored by him.
I've seen the build book for this car, and it was a WRECK. That Dave was
able to restore it to an award-winning, numbers-matching showpiece like
this is a further testament to his skill. To those who will inevitably ask,
Matador Red was the factory correct color for this car in '69.
The new Camaro,
Challenger and Mustang are
nice, but I'm always drawn to cars like this. Maybe because I can remember
when they were daily drivers.
This one has definitely had an easier life than it did with the previous
owner; Dave trailers this car to shows. Period. The top has never been
