1973 Pontiac Trans Am Maintenance at V8 Speed & Resto Shop
This 1973 Pontiac Trans Am was restored at a different shop, but out customer brought it to us to complete some final details.   It's a beautful Buccaneer Red car, powered by a Butler-built 455.. and then some.   We performed some maintenance on the car, and most recently, added a Holley Sniper EFI system and a GearVendors Overdrive.   The goals were better driveability and lower cruising RPM on the highway.   The Sniper and GearVendors units did the trick!   Now this car cruises fast and easy, and looks awesome doing it!

1976 Pontiac Trans Am Restoration at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

A Carousel Red 1976 Pontiac Trans AM with a Pontiac 400 V8 is enough to make anyone's day, but this one needs a bit of help before tearing up the roads.   It arrived in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in need of some rust repairs and other maintenance.   The V8 team installed a new floor section, new front subframe, and various suspension pieces that were worn out.   The interior was treated to a layer of sound deadoner, and the engine now roars to life thanks to a Holley Sniper Quadrajet EFI system.  Follow along as the V8 crew brings this bird back to high-flying shape!

1979 Pontiac Trans Am LS3 Swap and Suspension Upgrades at V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This 1979 Pontiac Trans Am was originally equipped with a 403 cubic inch Oldsmobile V8, and although it was pretty hot for the time, it just isn't enough for the owner today.    The car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some high-performace upgrades including a GM LS3 485 HP V8 engine fed by a Holley EFI system, and it will handle better thanks to a Ridetech Street Grip suspension system with YearOne wheels.   Wilwood brakes will haul it down in short order.  Before all the fun, we had to fix some rusty floors, which was a good time to fabricate a custom firewall for the car as well.   Follow along with all the progress here!
