1969 Chevrolet Camaro Drivability Improvements at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

Some restored cars look completed, but still require extensive refinement and tuning to be road-ready.    In this case, our customer had this sweet 1969 Camaro restored for them, but the shop did not complete some of the final drivability details, so the customer is not confident driving the car.  The car is sporting some cool parts selections like a FiTech fuel injected 454 Chevy V8 coupled to a Tremec TKO 500 5-Speed transmission, all wrapped in a stock RS / SS trim package.   However, the "last 5%" details still need to be addressed to make sure the car is ready for miles of trouble-free cruising.  For example, the front tires rub the inner fenders when turning, the windshield washer system does not work, there are some loose radio wires, and other nuisance items.   Once they are remedied, the engine tune will be optimized, brake performance dialed-in, and other systems verified for proper operation.    The V8 Speed & Resto Shop team is well-versed in this process, and we'll be performing final adjustments to remedy the quirks of a fresh restoration.

This 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass had been treated to an LS eninge swap, but has arrived in the V8 Speed and Resto Shop for a general check-up and safety inspection.    Although the car runs pretty well, there are a lot of loose-ends that our team would like to address before comfortably sending the new owner down the road.

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!
