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).

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.

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.

The Short Life Of A 1930 Ford Hot Rod, Pontiac Power
A story in images, funky video and music of the short life of a 1930 Ford
hot rod, 1963 389 Pontiac power, backed by M-21. Built with care to
resemble a period car as closely as possible. Was provided with Pete &
Jake's chassis which of course is not period, but it was terrific to build
and a excellent, smooth driver. Car quickly traded off as a roller in a
four-way trade only Mr Haney could work. I hope you enjoy watching - Best -
"Ride Pontiac Ride" 1988 Advertising Promo (FULL VERSION)
Ripped from the "30 Millionth Pontiac Wentzville Assembly GM Bonneville
SSEi UAW 2250" page on Facebook; all credit for finding and researching
this gem goes to them. I'm upping it here in hopes that someone is able to
eventually remaster the audio for better clarity.
The original description on their page is as follows:
There are other versions of the 1988 Ride Pontiac Ride extended commercial
similar to this on youtube and testdrivejunkie, but I have not come across
the complete 2:32 version like this one.
For the 1988 model year, Pontiac unveiled one of the strongest line-ups it
had offered in many years. Finally almost every model was aligned with the
Pontiac image as documented in the image statement (see post -
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=179043175453938&l=cb4447b618 ). The
Fiero suspension had been re-designed, the new FWD Grand Prix was about to
be selected Motor Trend Car of the Year, the new Bonneville SSE was
introduced, and I could go on and on.
Pontiac knew this was the right time to invest in a significant new
marketing promotion, so the folks over at the Pontiac advertising agency,
D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan came up with
the "Ride Pontiac Ride" campaign. Art Director Mark Zapico working under
Executive Creative Director Steve Kopcha and Creative Director Noel Nauber,
decided they needed an original theme song for the Pontiac commercials. The
song was composed by songwriter Mark Vieha who was co-partner along with
Jay Kennedy in the Studio City California based music house, LA-NY Music.
Vieha and Kennedy are also known for the Taco Bell theme song, "make a run
for the border" and Vieha also composed original music for movie
soundtracks. For the jingle "get on your Pontiac and ride" Vieha recalled
he was at a barbecue and just started humming the song.
This extended commercial was a signifant piece in the Ride Pontiac Ride
campaign. Many of the scenes, like of the band performing and people
interacting with Pontiac cars as the backdrop, were shot in and around
Toronto Canada for about a month in the fall of 1987, by Director Bob
Canning who was a Canadian and Director of Photography Oliver Wood. Other
DMB & B folks that might have been involved are Don Massey who worked with
Noel Nauber, Bruce Duffey and Rob Torz.
The lead singer of the scenes that appear in this commercial of the band
performing is Mark Campbell and the female lead is Canadian singer Alannah
Myles. The campaign was a huge success. Dealers included the phrase "ride
Pontiac ride" in their newspaper and print media advertisements.
The campaign not only caught the attention of the car buying public, it
also invigorated the dealers and motivated the entire Pontiac Division and
propelled Pontiac to 1988 US annual model year sales of 740,928 vehicles
which was good enough for 3rd place and represented 7.1% of the US market
and accounted for 20% of GM sales.The last time Pontiac had been in 3rd
place was 1973. The success of the campaign continue for annual model year
1989 with US sales of 734,658 vehicles which was again good enough for 3rd
place and represented 7.2% of the US market.
Note: the annual model year is the 12 month period from October 1 to
September 30 so it generally reflects current model year sales but includes
a bit of the prior model year that sell late and a bit of the next model
year that sell early and excludes the current model year that sells late.

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
