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).

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!!!
Old Race Car First Start - 1968 Pontiac Lemans Stock Car Lives Again!
I picked up this old roundyround race car from a buddies wrecking yard. It
was cheap, my parents are pissed it's in the back yard, nothing is new.
Norm Brill was the driver, I have no idea who he is so I'm going to assume
he went out in a blaze of glory having a shootout with the cops while
drunk, naked and high on PCP, leaving his race car in the weeds lost to
It's a 1968 Pontiac Lemans, the same body as the GTO and Tempest from what
I understand. The engine is either a 400 or a 350 V8, it had air
conditioning and power steering, possibly a limited slip rear differential
but I haven't had a chance to check. The carburetor is a 2 throat unit.
It pained me to see it crushed and sent to China like the Nova stock car
that was beside it, so I saved it, and now ya'll can enjoy it! Sorry the
audio isn't better, it sounds really good in person because the mufflers
fell off but it's more than my phone's microphone can handle. The engine
sounds very tight and any smoke is likely from the nasty gas I filtered and
ran through it.
I also show the old lettering on the car, but it's only because it's neat.
I'm not a race driver and have no sponsorship from the names listed, if
they are even in business any more I'd be surprised.
It's just a cool ol' muscle car!
Edit: Man this is taking a while to upload. The bent fan and nerfed crank
pulley happened when it was moved at the wrecking yard before I got it. I
can fix the pulley, but the fan is toast. It'll be replaced before it takes
out the water pump. The radiator is junk, it's leaking and I have a large
1ton truck radiator I'll put in it's place, possibly with an electric fan,
maybe mounted in the trunk and ducted. I'd sorta like to get fenderwell
headers for it like the ratrod has. Will have to look around at the
swapmeet....man...this is slow...I like Reddit? Ya'll like reddit? It's
neat. Yup...Ooh, I should post this to carporn or something. Oh man, almost
done...go...go little bar, you can do it! Oh to heck with it, I'mna go get
Edit 2: Aw man, it went backwards...was at 100, then went to 95...god, now
I just feel like a girl writing in her diary about stupid stuff. Like, oh
my gawd becky, did you SEE the percentages on that video? I kno rite? Oh, I
know, hey you should check out huskystarcraft if you like video games,
starcraft II Wings of Liberty in particular. That Husky guy is pretty cool,
the music videos are rad. I may have a straw hat and smell like narsty
gasoline and durt but I'm a nerd at heart and I still play with cars! Oh
hey it's done I think...neat.
That is a good pilot
Before you make an ass out of yourself and post a response...ask yourself
1-Are you a helicopter pilot?
2-Have you ever operated in a combat theater as a pilot?
3-Have you ever flown in a High Temp/High Gross weight/High DA situation?
4-Have you ever flown into an area which was prone to helicopter shoot
So...with all the "gift from god" pilots and crew members trying to
sharpshoot the title/video, I have changed the explanation.
1-The pilot is badass in my opinion(as is everyone that has flown with
him), thus the title.
2- Obviously it wasnt a super difficult LZ or else they would not have
picked it for us to use.
3-This was landing in the most dangerous part of Iraq where numerous other
helos have been shot down.
4- We went from 150 Knots at 75 feet in a very short distance to a perfect
landing. Not to mention 125 degrees out with a heavy helo. Lesser pilots
would have drooped the rotor and killed everyone.
5- Unless you have been a pilot in Iraq/ hot climate combat...STFU cause
you dont know shit about the numerous factors that normal pilots do NOT
6- As with everything, there are better pilots out there and better
landings...but that does not take away the fact that it takes years of
training and experience to be able to accomplish something like this.
7-Most people have a hard time parking their cars at Walmart...so what in
your minds makes you think this is easy in any way shape or form. Just
because he made it look easy doesnt mean it is.
