1965 Pontiac Tempest tripower two door sedan

What a great muscle car! Beautiful paint and interior...the bench seat could seat 3 up front! 4 speed, tripower car. Nice to have the original air conditoning. This is a sleeper...I'm sure many would figure it to be a regular family car!

1954 Ford Crestline Skyliner hardtop
I've always liked 1954 Fords. First year for the Y block OHV V8, it brought Ford up to date with a modern V8. The Skyliner was a three year experiment to rival the openness of a convertible with a solid top. It had its counterpart in the Mercury line. What they hadn't counted on was the radiant heating that the openness brought along with it.





1979 Pontiac Sunbird coupe
Nice little coupe! Based on the Vega/Astre underpinnings, this model brought new life to the compact. The interior is particularly nice on the Sunbird and its Chevy Monza twin. Fortunately for Pontiac, the Iron Duke 4 cylinder was the regular base engine for the car, avoiding the problems of the initial (75 and 76 Sunbirds) that still offered the Vega aluminum 4. This one has A/C and automatic.





Plymouth Prowler
This Prowler is a pleasing design....however it was always hamstrung by Chrysler Corporation's choice of a six cylinder engine as the motivating force. Hot rod enthusiasts live and breathe V8s...so a lack of one in this car was a glaring problem. Practically, the corporation may not have had a V8 that would fit into this chassis, so they did the best they could. Too bad for Prowler, too bad for Plymouth.





1966 Cadillac DeVille Convertible
This car has to be rare...but in the narration I said 5555 were made...that is actually the base price of this model in dollars at the time.. I don't know how many were actually made. This one has beautiful paint and upholstery. It would certainly set the owner apart as one with money and good taste!

1963 Pontiac LeMans Rare 4 Cylinder Four Barrel Four-speed 3.73 Posi - Half of a 389 V8
I thought you might like a look at this very unique 1963 Pontiac LeMans. It's powered by a 194.5 Cubic Inch 45 Degree Four Cylinder, topped with a 4 BBL Carb, and running through dual Exhaust. Pontiac, basically cut a 389 V8 in half...in fact, it uses the same head as the 389 and the 421. In this case, the four cylinder is backed by a four-speed manual and a set of 3.73 Gears with Posi. As you can see, it really is a great looking car and would look right at home on the dragstrip in the 1960's. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

1967 Tempest new camshaft Ultra Dyne 220/226 @ .050 in Pontiac 400
Traded my friend Robert for this camshaft. Came already broken in with a matched set of lifters. I swapped it out over the last month or so. I still have to install the temp gauge in the car, so I am not running it that long yet. Put around 2 miles on it. PULLS!!!! Hard!!! I have to find the coil bind on the springs. might have just increased redline!!!





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).
