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.

The Pontiac Fiero is a mid-engined sports car that was built by the Pontiac
division of General Motors from 1984 to 1988. The Fiero—meaning "proud"
in Italian and "wild", "fierce", or "ferocious" in Spanish—was designed
by George Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti as a Pontiac sports car. The Fiero
was the first two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to 1938 coupes, and also
the first and only mass-produced mid-engine sports car by a U.S.
manufacturer. Many technologies incorporated in the Fiero design such as
plastic body panels were radical for its time. Alternative names considered
for the car were Sprint, P3000, Pegasus, Fiamma, Sunfire, and Firebird
XP. The Fiero 2M4 (two-seat, Mid-engine, four-cylinder)
was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1984. The 1984 Fiero was
the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 for 1984, beating out the new
1984 Chevrolet Corvette for the honor.
370,168 Fieros were produced over the relatively short production run of
five years; by comparison, 163,000 Toyota MR2s were sold in its first five
years. At the time, its reputation suffered from criticisms over
performance, reliability and safety issues. Today, however, compared to
less adventurous attempts at two-seaters such as the Ford EXP, the unique
style of the Fiero compared to other American cars has left it a cult
following as a collectible car. It remains a popular chassis for rebodies
and electric conversions
Already selling the Corvette, General Motors management and accountants
were opposed to investing in a second two-seater sports car. But in 1979,
during the oil crisis, management saw a market opportunity for a
fuel-efficient sporty commuter car, and design work on the Fiero commenced.
To this end, it was fitted with a fuel efficient version of GM's 2.5 L
four-cylinder "Iron Duke" engine capable of 27 mpg-US (8.7 L/100 km; 32
mpg-imp) in the city and 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the
highway with the economy-ratio transmission option. These figures are U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency test-circuit results, published by Pontiac,
and confirmed from multiple sources. It was impressive mileage for a 2.5
L engine of the period, and still good by today's standards, but the
three-speed automatic reduced highway mileage to only 32 mpg-US (7.4 L/100
km; 38 mpg-imp). With respect to fuel economy, the Fiero would appeal to a
market niche for which the Corvette with its V8 engine was unsuitable.
1987 saw changes to the front and rear fascias on the "base coupe" with the
SE and GT models keeping the same "Aero" nose. The new non-aero noses lost
the black bumper pads of the earlier models and had a smoother look. The
four-cylinder engine's power rating increased to 98 hp (73 kW) with some
major modifications which included a roller cam, redesigned intake
manifold, distributorless ignition system (DIS), open combustion chamber
cylinder head and upgraded throttle-body fuel injection system. This was
the last year for the spin-on oil filter on the four-cylinder. The car was
offered in Bright Metallic Blue and replacing the ribbed black molding was
the round style found on the GT models. As a side note, the SE models
retained the ribbed molding, and added the aero nose found on the GT.
Redesigned headlight motors appeared in 1987. Additionally, starting with
the 1987 model Pontiac dealerships offered an upgrade in the form of an
"option" that changed the original body to a Ferrari-type body, called the
Fiero Mera. While technically a "kit", the change in body style was offered
only on new Fieros and is considered a class of car in its own right. There
was a limited production of Fiero Meras made however, as the company that
produced them, Corporate Concepts, was sued by Ferrari and ordered to stop.

Mourn the death of once a great make and make a little union of Pontiac
fans. This is my very first shot in making the video, so go easy on it.
Rather than using the moody/sad songs/musics, I have gone with the more
up-tune music to re-live the great eras that Pontiac was on, when it was an
icon for perfomance. I know I left out a lot of models here, but I only
included the AMERICAN Pontiacs. No imports, or blatent Chevy rebadges of
the recent. So you won't find the imports like Vibe, recent GTO, G3, G8
that are just an imports, or the blatent Chevy rebadges like G5, Torrent.
Only the true North American Pontiac that has the unique Pontiac Soul.
Since this is my very first video, I admit the quality is amaturistic at
best and some pics are blurry to really see, but, please, go easy on it. I
planned to make a longer, improved version soon.
Thanx. Pontiac may have died, but it's soul, performance and excitement
always lives on, in my heart and in every loyal Pontiac fans!!!!
Pontiac Tribute Day - June 1, 2010
As a part of their bankruptcy restructuring, GM inexplicably jettisoned
Pontiac, its third best-selling nameplate. The Wide-Track Division
officially ceases to exist Monday, May 31.
The next day, Tuesday, June 1, is Pontiac Tribute Day. If you have a
Pontiac, take it out of the garage and drive it that day, so people can see
Pontiac's illustrious history in the form of cars like the Torpedo, Silver
Streak, Star Chief, Safari, Bonneville, Grand Prix, GTO, Firebird, Fiero,
Solstice and G8.
And be sure to buy a Tribute Day decal for your rear window. You can buy
them at www. pontiactributeday.com or your local Pontiac Owner's Club (of
course you belong to one). The Fiero Store's website is:

'67 Crusher Camaro vs '70 Super Bee 1,500-Mile Burnout-Fest! - Roadkill Episode 19
On this episode of Roadkill, it's Freiburger in the Super Bee versus
Finnegan in the '67 Camaro as the guys make the trip
from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City and back to go race at the Midnight
Drags at Rocky Mountain Raceways in hopes of running the Bee on Nitrous for the first time since the Hemi was
installed. Which car will work best over 1,500 miles of mayem in three
The 700hp, blown Crusher Camaro is HOT ROD's longest-term
project car, surviving 20 years at the magazine. David Freiburger's 675hp
Hemi 1970 Dodge Super Bee is his first car, having been with him 30 years.
Both cars suffer from magazine-project-car syndrome: getting brief spurts
of attention followed by long periods of neglect. For the first time in
years, both cars were running and driving at the same time.
The Crusher Camaro is a
'67 model that was purchased for $700 in 1994 during California's
car-crushing program; it was rescued from the parking lot of a junkyard
where it was about to be handed in for crushing. It's been through a number
of engines in its time at HOT ROD magazine, and the most recent is a 489ci
bi-block (4.280 bore, 4.250 stroke) with 9.3:1 compression. It has a small,
224-at-0.050 Comp hydraulic roller cam, Holley oval-port heads, and a
Weiand 8-71 Supercharger with two Holley
850HP carbs. The engine makes 700 hp and 720 lb-ft on 5 psi Boost, but is tame enough to drive anywhere.
The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E that's really awesome, and the Ford
9-inch is loaded with 3.50 gears. The car is styled with Center Line Auto
Drags and a nose-high stance to look like a street machine of the early
¹80s. It has run 10.60 at 125 in the quarter-mile in the same trim seen in
Freiburger's ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is powered by a 10:0:1-compression, 484ci
Hemi with ported iron cylinder heads and a Comp solid roller camshaft. It
also uses a Holley Dominator carb on a custom dual-plane intake manifold by
Dick Landy, whose shop built the long-block in 1995. It made 675 hp on the
engine Dyno, but in
the car is has smaller headers, fairly restrictive Exhaust, and a mechanical fan that pull it down
to around 600. The trans is a Gearstar 727 Torqueflite backed by a Gear
Vendors under/overdrive, and the Strange 60 rearend has 3.73 gears (a
little too high for the
natuarally aspirated combo). The car weights 4,050 pounds with the driver,
and has run 11.80 at 118 mph on the motor.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
