1964 Pontiac Tempest 455 V8 High Performance Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1964 Pontiac Tempest. This
is a great example of Pontiac muscle that has been frame off restored and
modified just enough to make it exciting! It's decked out in white paint
with a red vinyl interior and factory steel wheels with correct hubcaps for
a classic Pontiac look, but wait until you open up the hood. There you will
find a completely rebuilt Pontiac 455 CID V8 complete with roller rockers,
HO Exhaust manifolds, Edelbrock 4
barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Pontiac Torker II aluminum intake, Mallory Hy
Fire electronic ignition, and a 4 core radiator. The transmission is a
rebuilt turbo 350 Automatic with a 2500
stall, and all of this is run through a Ford 9" posi rear end with 3.73
gears. There's plenty of power to spare in this beast! Other options
include hub caps, red line radial tires, factory style wheels, power
steering, seat belts, bucket seats, and an in dash tachometer. Thanks for
taking a look!

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Organ, EP
With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

1967 Tempest new camshaft Ultra Dyne 220/226 @ .050 in Pontiac 400
Traded my friend Robert for this camshaft. Came already broken in with a
matched set of lifters. I swapped it out over the last month or so. I
still have to install the temp gauge in the car, so I am not running it
that long yet. Put around 2 miles on it. PULLS!!!! Hard!!! I have to find
the coil bind on the springs. might have just increased redline!!!

PONTIAC GTO Judge (1971 455cid, the differences basic supertuning can make)
Those who know me well, know that I always beat "SUPERTUNING"
"SUPERTUNING" "SUPERTUNING" into the ground. This video shows the
difference minor tuning can do (This is minor because a 1971 GTO's fuel/ign
calibrations are already geared for performance, so there's not as much
improvement you can make like you'd be able to on say - a late 70s
smogger). But on larger scales, HUGE differences can be made, as much
difference as adding performance parts alone. The more the car is severely
out of tune/adjust------which happens more with the more mods you make,
then the more you'll gain by supertuning it. There's another vid on YT
where an Olds 455 was built with performance parts to be totally streetable
but achieve 1hp per cubic inch. After they got the recipe of perfect parts
all together they were disappointed when she only Dynoed at 320hp. But luckily
they did not give up! After the proper ign-curve/timing & carb adjusts were
made, the engine jumped from 320 up to 455hp!! No doubt all the new
cam/intake/head mods put the old fuel/spark adjustments badly out of
calibration for the NEW BREATHING ABILITY. Also with things like dual quads
(especially to engines not originally equipped wit them), your adjustments
are most likely going to be way off and need calibration even more. There's
lots of dual quad cars out there not running well for this reason, however
the few that have been calibrated perfectly (EVERY adjustment set for the
best "stop watch" time, etc) truly do run like a bat out of hell!
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).

We had a blast giving people rides in the Evo, even had a guest driver when
we gave Miss Thai Thai a ride after her photo shoot! See what people
thought about the car, caught a lot of people off guard.
