1970 Pontiac Trans Am Pro-Touring Project at V8 Speed & Resto Shop

This super cool 1970 Pontiac Trans Am came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop already fitted with a built Ram Air III, Sniper EFI, Roller Cam, performance suspension, and a great look.   The owner wants the V8 crew to finish the car's assembly, tune it up, and deliver it home as fully tuned and dialed-in, ready to tear up the highways.    Follow along as we complete this build and work out the bugs!

1971 Buick GS 455 Stage 1 Maintenance At V8 Speed and Resto Shop

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.

1984 Ford Mustang GT302H Predator Maintenance at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop

This is a car that many have never heard of... a 1984 Ford Mustang Predator GT302H.   These were built by Solomon America and sold through select Ford dealerships.   The Predator started as a Mustang GT and added uinque striping, a 4-point roll cage, 8-spoke wheels, a hood scoop, a front strut brace similar to a "Monte Carlo bar", custom valve covers... and this one is wearing a black and gold "Hertz" color scheme.    Only around 130 were built in 1984, and this one came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for a few upgrades and to return to the road as our customer's son's first car.   Too cool!

This is something you don't see everyday... a coach-built 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible!  This one stopped in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some basic maintenance and upkeep.  Oldsmobile never made a 1980s Cutlass convertible from the factory, making this a very interesting car.
