1964 Catalina first start of 2010
Here is a the start of my 1964 Pontiac Catalina! I bought this car 10 years
ago. I only started "fixing it up" within the last couple of years. It sat
in a garage in South Dakota from 67 to 1999 when I bought it, then from
1999 to 2008 I had it stored at my parents place.
El Paso To LA: The Hard Way! - Roadkill Episode 1
On the premiere episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike
Finnegan head to El Paso, TX with money and a mission - to find a car they
can buy, fix up, and drive back to Los Angeles. The catch? They only have
$1500 bucks to do it, and they need to sell it on eBayMotors.com before
they get home!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Pt 7 & Final 389 Resurrection
Edited on the old machine, as the editor is not up and running yet. Had to
start from square one, so the only music you get is intro and out theme
with everything in the middle provided by the Internal Combustion Symphony
Orchestra featuring the Open Exhaust
Expect delays to continue. Replaced the board on the hard drive of the
editor and it's saved, but still waiting for a power supply to arrive. This
older machine likes to crash the program.
Don't know what I'll edit next. I have stuff almost 3 years old that I
haven't done! Just wanted to get the Whitey and Jimmy Blue projects up to
speed. (Which I don't, really)
1968 PONTIAC CATALINA CONVERTIBLE - BEAKED GRILLE CONTINUES
Most car makes years ago could be identified by a certain look, a certain
design. This year the '68 Pontiac tradition continues with it's wide-track
stance and the familiar beaked grille causing instantaneous recognition
that this is indeed a Pontiac. The large Pontiacs came in 3 models: The
Catalina, Executive, and the Bonneville. Engines available for these large
Pontiacs were the 400 cid, 265 hp., 290 hp., 340 hp., or the 428 cid with
between 375 - 390 horses. All engines are V8's. Only 7,339 '68 Catalina
convertibles were made that year. Whereas the only other Pontiac model to
make convertibles was the Bonneville with 7,358 units made. This recently
restored Catalina use to be the owner's college transportation and a lot of
time, funds and sweat was taken to bring this back to factory. So check it
out and see if you can keep from falling for this Pontiac baby. Thanks
very much for viewing this 1968 Pontiac Catalina convertible.
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.

Pontiac Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course,
this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it
wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It
demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers'
shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun
vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.

whole or half rebuild, looks like I might be able to just do the top half

1969 Pontiac Ventura Being Restored
Take note, GM. 40 years from now, will people be taking the time and energy
to restore CTS's, Lucernes and FWD Impalas to their original conditions?
Here's a jewel from your glorious past, being restored by Chicago mechanic
Dave Armstrong. This '69 Ventura (a trim package on the Catalina in the
1960's) spent almost all of its life in Palm Springs. That brown coating
you see on the rear undercarriage and differential isn't rust -- it's sand.
When it's power-washed, it'll look as clean as the underside from the
It's great to see the front end without the fenders, showing off that 428
V8, disc brakes and front suspension in all their glory.
As you can see, that's the original Harrison air conditioning unit. Black
Morrokide upholstery and Pontiac 5-spoke mag wheels will complete the
picture. It'll be another showpiece, just like his green Firebird 400.
Dave's also got a red Firebird Ram Air convertible. But that's another
