V8TV Brings Cameras, V8 Speed and Resto Shop Brings Cars to 2017 Street Machine Nationals in Duquoin, IL
Our friend is selling his very cool 1971 Pontiac Firebird, that we did some considerable work to in our shop a couple years ago. It's a great car, super clean, and runs hard. We're posting the build thread after this detail page for fun. It’s been a V8TV build feature on our television show, videos in the thread. He does not want to sell the car, but he’s got a health situation to take care of. The 4 V8TV videos and pics below.
