http://www.v8tvshow.com - This 1966 GTO has seen better days, and this intro video explains the project details from start to finish, including the crazy timeline. It kinda goes like this: Install GM 6.2 liter L92 V8 and 6-speed 6L80E tranmission, install Air Ride Technologies Street Challenge air suspension system, upgrade the wheels, tires, and brakes. Drive on Hot Rod Power Tour. Disassemble entire car, replace quarter panels, repair holes in trunk floor, window ledges, fenders, and doors, paint, reassemble, and take to SEMA 2008. Whew!
1966 GTO - Painting The 2-Tone V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The GTO came to us in primer, but we didn't want
it to hit the streets on the Hot Rod Power Tour in boring light gray. So
the decision was made to shoot the car with a fun 2-tone paint scheme of
charcoal and Scarlet red in PPG basecoat to give the car an aggressive,
satin look. Other materials used include lots of 3M tape and mask paper.
Someday the car will receive some new bodywork and a more complete paint
job, but this is the deal for now.
1971 Olds "S71" Quarter Panel Repair V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The quarter panels were next on the list of
repairs on the "S71" Olds project. We were contemplating this area for a
while, as the original steel had some rust in the wheel well lip and along
the bottom edge, but it was otherwise in great shape. We elected to do a
minimally-invasive repair and use part of a replacement quarter panel skin
from YearOne to do the job.
1966 GTO: First Drive! V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - The 1966 GTO was finally ready to hit the road.
We bled the Wilwood brakes, had all the fluids topped off, the ride height
set, and it was time to take to the streets. Our goal was to build a car
that handled flat in the corners, made lots of power, and was comfortable
to drive, and the '66 GTO scored in all departments. Check it out!
1971 Olds "S71" Trunk Floor & Wheelhouses V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This video covers the installation of a new
3-piece trunk floor and inner and outer wheelhouses from YearOne. We
also installed a rear tail panel obtained from Desert Valley Auto Parts,
which was removed from a rust-free donor car in Arizona. The install is
pretty straight forward, and Randy Stange takes us through the steps and
the tools needed to do the job and have an undetectable repair when
finished. He used traditional MIG welding and the HTP Quickspot II spot
welder for a clean installation.

1966 GTO Part 9: Air Ride Suspension Install 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This GTO is going to be driven hard, so the
suspension system needs to be up for the task of not only handling well,
but it also needs to have a smooth ride. To accomplish this double-duty
trick, we chose to install an Air Ride Technologies Street Challenge
System. We saw this system in action on a '66 Chevelle on an autocross
track and couldn't believe the performance... flat cornering, predictible
handling, and a smooth ride all in one. The Street Challenge System
containes everything you need to transform your car's ride and handling,
complete with upper and lower Strong Arm control arms front and rear, tall
spindles, Shock Wave air spring / double adjustable shock combination
units, Muscle Bar sway bars, Posi Link endlinks, AirPod self-contained
compressor / controller / air tank, Level Pro ride height sensors and
control unit, keyfob remotes, air lines, and more. This time, we're
installing the front suspension components.
1965 Chevelle Quarter Panel Install Pt. 1 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - PART 1 - Quarter panels are one of the most rust
and dent-prone parts of musclecars, and our 1965 Chevelle had some of each.
Mostly dents. Thankfully, OPGI came out with new reproduction full
quarter panels for 1965 Chevelles. In this video, we show you how to
remove your old panel and install the new. Also applies to other GM A
Bodies like Skylarks, Cutlasses, GTOs and others.

1969 Mustang "Anvil" Steve Strope Video Feature V8TV SEMA 2010
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Steve Strope and the crew at Pure Vision teamed
up with Anvil Auto to create a very trick 1969 Mustang to showcase Anvil's latest
carbon fiber Mustang parts,
and to go burn up road race tracks! The car features tons of road race
inspired elements, from a widened body to cantilevered suspension. The
giant John Kaase Boss 9 521 CID 805 HP motor under the hood makes things
happen, and the custom wheels grip the road. This is another PV creation
that takes a long time to digest!

Pro-Touring 1969 Pontiac GTO Video Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Roger Poirier's 1969 Pontiac GTO is a car that
has lived in Roger's family for a long time... several decades, in fact.

Pro-Touring conversion with upgraded suspension parts, a hot Pontiac V8,
and amazing black paint. The interior is red, the wheels are chrome, it
all adds up to a car that lacks nothing in execution or style.
