MORE PICS HERE!!!
NOT MY CAR!!! Just thought it was a cool video.
This beast sports a twin turbo 522cid
big block Chevy that screams out 1250hp on pump gas and a ridiculous 2000hp
on race gas! Ever go 0 to 150mph in 5 seconds -- Butch can. Butch and his
3700lb Pontiac cruise the local streets (with parachute, of course) and run
the quarter in 7 seconds. How many 70 year old men have the nuts to mash
the throttle on 2000hp? Not sure, but Butch sure does. The Pontiac was
transformed into this behemoth at Nelson Supercars.

1963 Pontiac LeMans convertible
Beauty! This blue color was common at the time..most manufacturers offered
a version of it! Notice the character creases in the rear quarter and the
trim that accentuates the fenders. Some versions of the car had the 326
c.i. engine as this one does..others had a V8 engine essentially cut in
half and offered as a four cylinder model (195 c.i.). The transmission was
aft, and a flexible driveline connected it to the engine. A good example
of how engineering experimentation was alive and well at GM during this

Pontiacs for 1964
John DeLorean replaced Pete Estes as general manager, and he continued the
same emphasis on performance that Bunkie Knudsen and Estes had begun.
The big news for 1964 For 1964, the Tempest and LeMans' transaxle design
was dropped and the cars were redesigned under GM's new A body platform;
frame cars with a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The
most important of these is the GTO, short for "Gran Turismo Omologato," the
Italian for "Grand Touring, Homologated" used by Ferrari as a badge to
announce a car's official qualification for racing. In spite of a GM
unwritten edict against engines larger than 330 ci in intermediate cars,
DeLorean (with support from Jim Wangers from Pontiac's ad agency), came up
with the idea to offer the GTO as a dealer option package that included a
389 ci engine rated at 325 or 348 horsepower (260 kW).

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.
