Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some
they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing.
Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their
capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac
Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by
its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a
Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated
suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is
outside-the-box styling at its best.

1962 Pontiac Catalina 421 Super Duty - Gateway Motorsports Park - Huge Wheelie
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
This is a video of an awesome 9 Second, 1962 Pontiac Catalina. This Super
Stock Pontiac was racing in the Nostalgia Drags at Gateway Motorsports
Park, just outside of St. Louis, MO. It's an original 421 Super Duty car
and man do they have it set up right. This thing hooks hard and leaves
straight every time. Definitely nothing wrong with a mid 9 second quarter
mile at 143 mph. I thought you might get a kick out of that huge wheelie he
pulled on the one run. I hope you found it interesting....thanks for
Gateway Motorsports Park

Epic Lambrecht Chevrolet Auction - Wheels of Misfortune
If you missed this incredible auction in person, this is the vid to watch!
Chevrolet Dealer Ray Lambrecht of Pierce, Nebraska, hoarded about 500 cars
and trucks during his over 50 years in business. Many of these vechicles
were new or low mileage trade-ins. At this auction Sept 28 - 29 2013, they
were all finally set free and sold to the highest bidder. Most were badly
weathered hulks after 40 - 50 or more years of exposure. A handful were
breathtakingly original gems. At least two local folks who traded thier
cars 40+ years ago bought them back. The crowd was huge. Prices were
extrodinary. The sale totaled slightly over $3 million including buyer's
fee making this the richest crop ever sold at the Lambrecht farm. Truly
this was a once-in-a-lifetime field of dreams and memories.Enjoy.
Part1 1959 Pontiac 389 resurrection for "The Find" 1956 GMC 250 Dually
I HATE PRE-ROLL ADS! YouTube can't seem to get the code right. I've reset
the defaults to NO PRE-ROLL ADS 3 times now. Sorry for the pre-rolls. I'm
still working on it. Snagged a 1959 Pontiac 389 from an hour or so away.
Pig in a poke, really, but they don't get any easier to find as time goes
on. The 56 needs a heart transplant, and 389 cubes is the biggest direct
bolt-in you can get your hands on! I don't know how many parts there will
be. Just trying to get it edited and uploaded!
Cubes... Gotta have cubes...

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and
later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the
FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s
early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described
in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru
1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch
displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in
1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It
eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM
divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac).
PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the
1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The
1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in
the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced.
Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block
was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980
the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8
blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25
pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.
Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.
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).

This is from one of My SUbscribers who knows ALOT about these cars
All wagons from 71-76 rode on the C-body chassis (127 inch) wheelbase...
(Chevrolet Belair-Townsman, Impala-Kingswood, Caprice-Kingwood Estate), the
Pontiac Safari (Catalina, Bonneville, and Grand Ville wagons were all
Safari's) - (Grand Ville was called Grand Safari), Olds Custom Cruiser
(with 88 and 98 interiors), and Buick Estate (LeSabre and Electra series
interiors). In 1977 the wagons moved to the B-body chassis and rode on
the 116" wheelbase until 1996 when they were discontinued
