    He also helped me do the cam and intake swap in the camaro. Its been a blast working with him, but also I do hang out with him every friday night so its not a typical father son relationship. I am 27 and well I guess he is too, or at least he thinks so. But he is actually 63.

    Very cool.

    I'm hoping I can do something like this with my son, he is currently 5, and I am 47. But by doing the math, when he is 27 I will be (hope to be still alive!) 69. Dammit. Anyway, I can promise to still have a fast car, always have and always will.

    You will have a blast when the time comes. I have learned sooo much from my dad and all his friends.

    1998 Trans Am

    Well, this is my 1988 Trans Am GTA. I've done a couple custom touches inside, added a 58mm Throttle body to the 305 TPI, swapped from suckomatic to T5 manual, and we suspect an LT1 cam by her sound...but otherwise she's stock.

    Here's what she looked like when I got her...


    And here's what I've done with her in the last two years...

    I've always liked the GTAs too. And I love how you described the tranny swap! Yours looks great.

    One thing I was not a fan of was the specific front/rear wheels. No joy in rotating those, but you can go L to R.

    Yeah, the suckomatics really kill the joy in these cars. After she ate three, I said "screw this" and put in the manual. Haven't had a problem since...

    The wheels are a huge pain for the typical owner, but I'm a mechanic with occasional access to a tire-mounting machine, so it's not a huge deal for me to rotate them...and I don't put enough miles on her to need it. The tires are directional, so I can't even go L to R...

    Yes it is. It took 8 years in the building process. We just did part of the HotRod Power Tour with the car. They picked it @ Indy & did a photo shoot so it Should be featured sometime in the future.

    Here is a pic of a 70 SS Nova I'm finishing now.

    Great video. I especially like the moving shots where you get on it and lay down the rubber.
