Kevin Oeste and Mike “Q-Ball” Clarke dive into achieving a state of “Flow” while wrenching, or doing anything, really, on the latest episode of the V8 Radio Podcast! Kevin was wrenching on his 1970 Buick when time whizzed by, listening to inspirational interviews, having the right tools, and the work going smoothly all contributed to the zen-like state. Have you been there? Of course, you’ll find automotive trivia and a whole lot more, and if you dig it, leave us some kind words or stars! Thanks, and enjoy the show!
This rendering is the goal for this 1978 Pontiac Trans Am, which will have a nod towards the modern without losing the “DNA” of the legendary Trans Am. It will be powered by an LS engine, a 6-speed manual transmission, and will roll on upgraded suspension and 19″ YearOne snowflake wheels. The color scheme recalls the 10th Anniversary Trans Am gray / silver layout, only inverted on the car. It will also feature loads of modern upgrades inside, like better seating, gauges, Vintage Air A/C, a tilt column, sound deadening, performance audio, and much more.
This Trans Am is destined to be GM Dealer serviced when complete, so our team is building a book of information, warrantee documents, and other specifications so the car is dealer-friendly to service. You can hear that story in the V8 Radio Podcast below.

This one is going to be a handful! They also cover a modernized 1978 Pontiac Trans Am and a whole new way to look after the car, and wrap it all up with some tool talk.
