1970 Trans Am Cars For The Street: Muscle Car Of The Week Episode 269 V8TV 
 
Trans Am was one of the hottest racing series going in 1970, and the general public could play along at home with one of the mandated production versions of the Trans Am racers seen on the track.    In this episode, we’re looking at the 1970 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, the Ford BOSS 302 Mustang, and the Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda, with a few others in the mix like a  Donohue AMC  Javelin and Dodge Challenger T/A.   They are all legit street performers that give a nod to the  real race cars in the Trans Am series.    From The Brothers Collection.

This one isn’t your typical Muscle Car Of The Week… but that’s OK with us!    This Cameo White 1965 Pontiac Catalina from The Brothers Collection is more of a car than many can handle, thanks to the factory installed 421 H.O. V8 topped with 3 deuces and a 4-speed!   Yep, in a 4-door!

So what’s a swanky rocket ship like this 1957 Pontiac Bonneville doing on a show like Muscle Car Of The Week?   Well sit back and let me share the news my friend… this is one of the 630 or ‘57 Bonnies built with the factory installed FUEL INJECTED 347 V8 engines lurking behind that spacy grille, and man, it’s a runner!   From The Brothers Collection.  MUSIC: "Bonneville Shuffle” by the Jeremiah Johnson Band - 
 
 
A 1969 Pontiac GTO was a hot car, and the heat got hotter if you ordered one with the high-revving Ram Air IV 400-cube V8 and a 4-speed.   Less than 50 were built with the RAIV in a 4-speed convertible, and this one was recently unveiled at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago after a complete restoration.  It is easy being green for this rock star GTO!  From The Brothers Collection. 
 
 
There is a lot going on with the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am for ‘71, not the least of which is how cool the car looks.    Pontiac engineers really did their homework to help make sure these cars could still offer high performance in spite of impending regulations that would otherwise choke the bird out. 
 
 
 
It’s the very first one of only 8 1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am convertibles ever built, and it’s one of several in The Brothers Collection!
 
 
The GTO was in it’s second year in ‘65, and Pontiac was hard at work perpetuating the mystique of what has been called the first Muscle Car.     They called it a “Quick Wide-Track Tiger”, and the performance potential was strong.      This 389 4-speed car is from the Brothers Collection.
