About oquinnj’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I like all musclecars. Any brand, any model.
Favorite is Pontiac.
Currently own 1971 Trans Am, 455 HO, 4 speed car.
1981 Trans Am, Black on Black Turbo car.
I get great joy from building my own engines and focusing on the details. Ported my 4x heads, bought video and watched it a bunch of times. My plans for the blue 71 is to return it to its original color of white. Has original blue interior. Want to change the muncie m22 to a 5 or 6 speed tremec overdrive. I really don't like the muncie, even as good as it is suppose to be. The 2.20 1st gear ratio is way too high. Hard to take off, even with all the torque.
The 81, I bougt for my 7 year old son. And of course I drive it more than my blue one. Plan on a 5.3 ls motor turbocharged by Cruizing the coast 2009. Already put a 200R4 in it. That overdrive is awesome.


My first car

1976 Mustang Cobra II

Car I wish I still had

1969 GTO

Great job Jimmy. I recently had to change engines in my '79 (Olds 403) due to spinning a bearing as we traveled to Texarkana for the 2012 Bandit Run. I've got the engine swapped and drove the 'lil Red TA on the 2013 Run out west. Lots of work doing it myself but it was fun to drive once I got it done! I want to put a 200R4 behind the olds. Any advice?
