1976 Pontiac Ventura Street or Drag, Hot Rod Red, Quick Start and Idle
This is just a real quick video of the Pontiac starting up and pulling out of the garage. I apologize for the sound quality, the volume overpowered my cameras microphone. I hope to post some footage in the future of it tearing down the road. We tried this day, but the quality of the vid is terrible. We'll find a way to make a great one next time. When you hear this car in all it's glory it will give you chills.
The car is equipped with a small block Chevy, Holley Double Pumper Carb, Muncie M21 4spd, and spooled rear with 4.33 Gears. The car is full of seldom seen parts, clever little speed tricks, and it's really well sorted out.

Ethan's CO2 Rocket Car Project
Our neighbor kid, Ethan, built this CO2 Rocket Car and he brought it over
to show us. I thought you might find it interesting. It even fishtails a
bit as it launches. Hope you like it.
Great Home Garage Set-up - Complete with a Lift, Heat and A/C, Paint booth, and Musclecars
I thought might be interested in this cool home garage and the owner was
nice enough to let me look around. It would be great for anyone that works
on their own cars. It's equipped with a lift, heat and a/c, paint booth,
welders, bead blaster, and even has some great mopars parked inside. It
has everything you need to get the job done and it looks good too. As an
added bonus, the owner's son happened to have his extremely stout running
Pontiac Ventura over there today. We'll be showing this car in action in a
future vid. Thanks for looking, hope you like it.

PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
Kenny Pierson and his Pontiac Ventura II at the track
Took the old girl to the track to play around. . Pay no attention to the
popping and cracking of the motor at about 4000 rpms. The motor let go. Won
an award at the carshow there and had to be pulled around by my buddy in a
golf cart. One of the screws on the rotor cap came out and locked up the
distributer. Tore the teeth off my composite distributer gear. Quick
fix-all better now. Car launched great and that would have been a 10 sec.
