We had a good friend and customer call us looking for a Buick GS to purchase.   After several months of searching, we found this slick red 1971 Buick GS 455 for sale, inspected it, and ended up purchasing it for the customer.     It is an original GS car, with a non-original 455, but the engine has been rebuilt with a performance cam, lifters, intake, and it runs very strong.   The car is painted a non-original color, (was green), but it looks very presentable and has a very clean parchment white interior.   The car drives fantastically and will be a pleasure to own.   This is a gallery of the car for your viewing pleasure.

1971 Chevrolet C10 LS3 Swap
Our customer wanted to drive this clean 1971 Chevrolet C-10 pickup as a daily driver, while improving performance, economy, and reliability.    
 
In this 3 part video series, we swap in a fresh LS3 485 HP GM Connect & Cruise engine and 4L60E automatic overdrive transmission into this sweet 1971 Chevrolet C10 pickup truck.   The benefits include reliable performance, 485 horsepower, better fuel economy, and more. 
 
The engine came from Weir Chevrolet, our supplier for GM crate engines and such, and we tuned it with an HP Tuners suite.     We used a Hooker engine mount set to bolt the LS3 into the truck.   A Holley accessory drive was added to mount the alternator, power steering pump, and A/C compressor.    
 
The whole rig is kept cool with an Entropy radiator and Spal cooling fans.     The crew was able to connect to the existing A/C system in the truck and make it functional. 
 
The fuel system starts with a reproduction fuel tank from Tanks, Inc., which comes redesigned to house a high-pressure EFI fuel pump, and an internal pump matched to the requirements of the LS3.
 
The truck’s vitals are monitored by a set of Dakota Digital VHX gauges, and a Dakota cruise control module is also used for easy highway cruising.     A new rear gearset with 3.08 gears works better with the 4L60 overdrive transmission for snappy acceleration and economical highway cruising.

1976 Chevrolet Corvette Upgrades at V8 Speed & Resto Shop
This 1976 Chevrolet Corvette came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop seeking some modern upgrades for improved performance.   It already had a Chevrolet Performance ZZ2 crate engine making 345 HP, but the V8 team added Holley fuel injection for increased reliability and performance.   Then they swapped out the 4-speed manual transmission for a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed from Modern Driveline and a hydraulic clutch.  These provide an overdrive gear for highway cruising, and a smooth, easy operation.  Brakes are improved significantly with a Hydratech hydraulic brake booster.  Vintage Air A/C was added to keep the occupants comfortable.  The V8 Interior Shop went to work recovering the seats and installing new door panels to freshen the inside, and the black paint was treated to a polish job.   It's a slick ride that far outperforms the original, and is great fun to drive!

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!

1977 Chevrolet Corvette Upgrades and Custom Console at V8 Speed & Resto Shop
This 1977 Chevrolet Corvette arrived at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop after the customer wanted some modern upgrades done to the inside of the car.     This car is not wearing an original color, and the original engine has been replaced with a GM Performance Parts crate 350, so the customer does not place a heavy priority on originality.    The 1977s are not high on the list of collector Corvettes, so these make great platforms to personalize and enjoy. 
 
The plans include upgrading the center console, installing some Dakota Digital HVX gauges, audio system, adding a Vintage Air A/C system, and backup camera, as well as fixing some issues like leaks and engine cooling problems.

We enjoyed refreshing this 1979 Chevrolet Bonanza Pickup!  This one is still in it's original family, and we're honored to have had the opportunity to give it a repaint and make it look new again.

1979 Pontiac Trans Am
1979 Pontiac Trans Am Crash Repair and Candy Color Repaint Photo Gallery 
 
This Trans Am was restored once and treated to a multilayer candy paint job in the process. It is unique that it has a Buick 455 under the hood, and not the Pontiac 400 or 455 and not an Olds 403.
 
The color is House of Kolor Kandy Brandywine sprayed over a gold base, with a flake added in for extra shimmer. The gold striping and tan interior really accentuate the candy red and give this car and appearance that is like a magnet for eyeballs.
 
Unfortunately, the owners Were out enjoying the car one day when they got rear ended. Knowing that most collision shops would not touch a project like this, they brought the car to us at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.

This 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra is a very cool project that was started by the car’s owner and has evolved over the years.  
 
When the car arrived at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, it had been subjected to several performance upgrade projects already, but none of them had been fully completed and “sorted out”.     The owner is a busy guy, and he was able to handle some of the big steps, but as they say, the last 5% of the work takes 50% of the time, so he hired our team to finish those tasks and perhaps perform some additional ones as well.
