WHEEL DRIVE HOW TOSHOW, AND WE'RE CALLING

IT DETROIT MUSCLE.

(JOE)>> NOW HERE'S THE DEAL,WE'RE GONNA BE REVISITING

AND REBUILDING SOME OFYOUR FAVORITE AMERICAN

HOT RODS AND MUSCLE CARS.

SHOOT ANYTHING THAT CAME OUTOF DETROIT BACK IN THE DAY

THAT HAD SOME PUNCH TO IT.

(TOMMY)>> AND ON TOP OF THATWE'RE GONNA BE HITTING ON

SOME OF THE RIDESTHAT ARE PART OF THE

NEW MUSCLE CAR ERA.

BIG POWER IS BACK!

WE'RE GONNA TAKE SOME OFTHESE AWESOME RIDES AND

MAKE THEM EVEN MEANER.

(JOE)>> YEAH TOM BUT WE'VEGOT A PROBLEM, EXCEPT

FOR A LOT OF TOOLSTHIS SHOP IS EMPTY.

SO WE'VE GOT TO GETBUSY AND GET OUT AND

FIND OUR FIRST PROJECT.

(TOMMY)>> SO COMING OUTOF THE GATE WE WANTED TO

PUT OUR BACK INTO IT.

WE WANTED TO PICK A CARTHAT WAS ICONIC, COOL,

AND SOMETHING YOUGUYS COULD RELATE TO.

I THINK YOU'RE GONNALIKE WHAT WE PICKED.

WE KNEW IT HAD TO BESOMETHING SIGNIFICANT.

WHY, WELL BECAUSE THIS FIRSTPROJECT IS GOING TO BE GIVEN

AWAY TO ONE OF YOU GUYS.

(SHERRY)>> I'VE OWNEDTHIS CAR SINCE 1986.

WHAT 27, 28 YEARS?

MY HUSBAND ACTUALLYBOUGHT THIS CAR FOR ME

FOR MY 29TH BIRTHDAY.

HE LOVES ME!

(JOE)>> WELL THERE'S NOMISTAKING ONE OF THESE

BIRDS WHEN YOU SEE THEM.

CHICKEN ON THE HOOD, SHAKERTO GO WITH IT, HONEYCOMB

GRILL AND PONTIAC EMBLEMS,YOU SURE KNOW A TRANS AM

WHEN YOU SEE ONE.

AND IT ALL STARTED RIGHTHERE WITH THE '60'S

PHENOMENON CALLEDTRANS AM RACING.

THIS WAS THE AMERICAN MUSCLEANSWER TO EUROPEAN CIRCUITS.

AND THERE'S A '69TRANS AM RIGHT THERE.

THIS STYLE OF RACING WASKNOWN TO HAVE BEEN DOMINATED

BY THE PONY CARS, MUSTANGS,CAMAROS, CUDAS, AND OF

COURSE THE TRANS AMS.

BUT THEN IN 1977 BURTREYNOLDS AND SALLY FIELD

WENT ON THE RUN FROMSHERRIFF BUFORD T.

JUSTICE IN SMOKEYAND THE BANDIT.

(SHERRY)>> WE DO LOVEBURT REYNOLDS AND

WE LOVE THE SHOWS.

AND AFTER I SEEN THAT BLACKCAR I WANTED ONE BUT I

WANTED RED.

(JOE)>> THAT ONE MOVIECREATED A PHENOMENON WHICH

STILL RESONATES TO THIS DAY.

IT'S HARD NOT TO LOOK COOLIN THIS PONTIAC PONY CAR,

WHICH LIES ON THE BORDERLINE BETWEEN GAUDY AND

DOWN RIGHT AGGRESSIVE.

THIS PARTICULAR CAR HAS BEENGARAGED FOR A LONG TIME.

THE OLD PONTIAC 400 HAS AFEW SQUEALS IN IT, BUT AFTER

WE GET DONE WITH IT IT'LLBE MAKING A WHOLE LOT

MORE NOISE THAN THAT.

(TOMMY)>> NOW A VERY COMMONTHING TO DO IS TO TAKE A

USED CAR FOR A TEST DRIVE.

I SWEET TALKED THEOWNER OUT OF THE KEYS.

SO WE'RE GONNA CARRYTHIS THING DOWN THE ROAD.

(JOE)>> ONE OF THE GREATTHINGS ABOUT THESE CARS IS

THEY WERE LEGITIMATECONTENDERS WHEN

IT CAME TO HANDLING.

THE TRANS AM WAS ASPORT TUNED UPGRADE

OVER THE FIREBIRDS.

THINK OF IT LIKE AZ-28 TO A CAMARO.

NO DOUBT IT'S AFUN CAR TO DRIVE.

THIS PARTICULAR CAR REALLYFEELS LIKE IT'S AT HOME ON

THE HIGHWAY AND IT CRUISESAS SMOOTH AS GLASS,

ONCE IT'S LAID OUT.

HEY IS THAT JERRY REED?

ALL IN ALL THIS IS A QUALITYCAR, WHICH IS GOING TO BE

GREAT FOUNDATIONFOR US TO BUILD ON.

(SHERRY)>> REALLYI'M GONNA MISS IT.

I'M VERY SAD TOSEE THIS CAR GO.

BUT SOMEBODY NEEDS TO TAKEIT AND KEEP IT UP BECAUSE

IT'S JUST BEEN SITTING INTHE GARAGE AND IT'S TIME TO

GET IT OUT ON THE ROAD.

IT'S VERY MUCH LIKE AMEMBER OF THE FAMILY,

I'M LETTING GO OF IT.

(JOE)>> WE FIGURED BEFORE WESTARTED TWISTING BOLTS OFF

THIS OLD PONTIAC ANDTAKING IT APART WE'D POKE

IT ON THE CHASSIS DYNO.

AS A MATTER OFSCIENCE OF COURSE.

MIKE GALLEY FROM OUR SISTERSHOW ENGINE POWER IS GONNA

LEND US HIS TIME AND HISSHOP FOR A LITTLE BIT SO WE

CAN SEE JUST HOW MANYHORSEES ARE HIDING

INSIDE THAT TRANS AM.

(TOMMY)>> WELL ALRIGHTY,WE'VE GOT THE TRANS AM

STRAPPED ON THE DYNO, ANDWE'RE GONNA MAKE US A

PULL CAUSE WE KINDAWANT TO FIGURE OUT

WHAT OUR BASE LINE IS.

NOW THE ENGINE, DRIVETRAIN,AND ALL THAT, WE'RE GONNA

UPGRADE IT BUT WE'RE JUSTKINDA DOING THIS FOR GRINS

BECAUSE WE WANT TO SEE WHATKIND OF POWER THIS THING'S

REALLY MAKING AND WE MAYEVEN DO A LITTLE TWEAKING

ON IT JUST TO SEE WHATWE CAN GET OUT OF IT.

DON'T BREAK HER!

WELL, I HAVE TO SAY YOU JUSTBLEW THE SOOT OUT OF IT.

(MIKE)>> OH MY GOSH!

(ANNOUNCER)>> SO HOW MUCHPOWER DID IT MAKE, COMING UP

WE'LL SEE HOW THE OLD REDDRAGON DID ON THE ROLLERS.

AND THEN SEE WHAT ELSEWE CAN SQUEEZE OUT OF IT.

PLUS WE TAKE A LOOK AT ASLEEK MODERNIZED SUPERCAR

VERSION OF THESECLASSIC PONTIACS.

(JOE)>> WELCOME BACK.

IN CASE YOU MISSED ITTODAY WE'RE DOING OUR BEST

BANDIT IMPERSONATION.

OUR NEWEST PROJECTCAR IS THIS BRIGHT

RED '78 TRANS AM.

WE'RE GONNA SLAP IT ON THEDYNO AND SEE WHAT KIND OF A

BASE LINE WE CANGET OUT OF THAT 400

INCH PONTIAC ENGINE.

(MIKE)>> OH MY GOSH!

(JOE)>> AND BOY WASIT A GROUND POUNDER.

THAT'S RIGHT,110 HORSEPOWER.

FACTOR IN PARASITIC LOSSFROM THE DRIVETRAIN AND THE

ADDITIONAL 40,000 MILES ONTHIS ENGINE'S REBUILD, WELL

110 PONIES ACTUALLYSOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT.

(TOMMY)>> 122 THAT TIME.

(MIKE)>> 122!

(TOMMY)>> THE LADY WHOOWNED IT, I DON'T BELIEVE

SHE ABUSED IT ANY.

SO I KNOW THIS THING COULDPROBABLY USE A TUNE UP,

PROBABLY EVEN TAKING THEAIR FILTER OFF THIS THING.

(MIKE)>> HOW OLD'STHE AIR FILTER?

WOW, IS THAT DYNO FAN ON?

(TOMMY)>> YEAH ITS ON.

OH THIS AIN'T NOTHING.

I AIN'T KIDDING, ITWAS A BLACK CLOUD

BEHIND YOU EARLIER.

GO AHEAD AND PULLANOTHER ONE AND LETS

SEE WHAT IT DOES.

(JOE)>> STILL WE'RE GONNATRY TO BLOW THE COB WEBS

OUT, SEE IF SHE'LLWAKE UP A LITTLE.

AT THE VERY LEAST WE'REHOPING TO BREAK 130 FOR A

NICE SOLID BASELINE BEFOREWE TINKER WITH THE ENGINE.

(TOMMY)>> 136, 225!

(MIKE)>> WE BROKE IT.

(TOMMY)>> WE BROKE OUR 130.

YEAH, THAT'S KINDA NOTTHAT IMPRESSIVE IS IT?

(JOE)>> ONE WAY TOLOOK AT IT, LOTS OF

ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT.

SO WE PICKED UP SOME TUNE UPPARTS FROM SUMMIT RACING IN

HOPES OF WAKING IT UP.

WE'RE GONNA START OUT WITHSOME E-THREE SPARK PLUGS

WITH DIAMOND FIRETECHNOLOGY, WHICH SHOULD

PICK UP ON THE POWER.

AND IF WE WERE GONNA KEEPDRIVING THIS CAR, IT WOULD

ALSO HELP US OUT WITHLOWERING EMISSIONS AND

IMPROVING FUEL MILEAGE.

WHILE WE'RE AT IT WE'LL ALSOPULL OFF THE FUEL FILTER.

YOU CAN SEE IT HAD SOMEBLOCKAGE, SO A NEW ONE IS

A LOW COST INVESTMENTTHAT CAN GO A LONG WAY.

A GOOD SET OF SPARK PLUGWIRES WILL HELP OUT TOO.

THE ONES WE PULLED OFFTHIS CAR WERE PRETTY RATTY.

AND A COUPLE WERE EVEN TAPEDUP WHERE THE INSULATION

HAD CRACKED OFF.

WITH A NEW AIR FILTERIN PLACE, WE CAN NOW

SEE WHAT SHE'LL DO.

THE THING IS THIS TIME ITSMOKES SO MUCH IT MIGHT

REMIND YOU OF AN OLDSTEAM LOCOMOTIVE.

(TOMMY)>> ONE OF MYFACIAL EXPRESSIONS

IS LIKE OH MY GOD!

(MIKE)>> OH MY LORDY!

(TOMMY)>> WELL I THINKTHE CARBURETOR'S RUNNING

A LITTLE BIT RICH.

(JOE)>> A VACUUM GAUGEHOOKED UP TO THE CARB WILL

TELL YOU HOW TO ADJUST YOURAIR/FUEL MIXTURE SCREWS.

IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE, JUST TRYTO GET THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF

VACUUM OUT OF EACH SIDE TOGET THE OPTIMUM MIXTURE.

(TOMMY)>> YOU CAN SAYIT WAS A LITTLE BIT FAT.

I ADJUSTED THE THRUSTIDLE MIXTURE SCREWS.

THEY WERE ABOUT FOURTURNS OUT TOO FAR.

SO WE'RE GONNA SEEWHAT THAT DOES.

WELL WE MADE ABOUT 16 EXTRA.

THAT'S NOT TOO BADCONSIDERING THIS OLD THING

COULD PROBABLY USETHAT TUNE UP ANYHOW.
