1971 Pontiac T-37 Just got the car back from the body shop/paint booth.
Turned out great. Car has the original 350 bored .030 over, with original
350 turbo auto, BJM shift kit, Hedman
Headers, aluminum pulleys, Edelbrock dual feed thunder 4 barrel carb,
Edelbrock RPM intake, Flowmaster Exhaust. Its a T-37 but has the hood tach,
floor gauges, spoiler, and some other add-ons reminiscent of a GTO.
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.
1966 Pontiac LeMans
This 1966 LeMans is an absolute work of art! It's powered by a 326ci V8 and
a Powerglide automatic transmission. It has power steering and power
brakes, chrome valve covers and air cleaner, HEI ignition, MSD wires, and a
new aluminum radiator! It has brand new upholstery inside and everything
looks like it is from the factory in new condition! Hidden in the glove box
is a Sony CD/USB receiver with a wired in amplifier in the trunk! It has
fresh chrome on the bumpers, very nice glass, and dual Flowmaster Exhaust! This LeMans is laser straight with
excellent body lines and perfect panel gaps! It runs and drives great!
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).
1973 PONTIAC LEMANS ON CHASSIS DYNO
HERE ARE A COUPLE OF PULLS ON THE CHASSIS Dyno. IT WAS LATER DISCOVERED
THAT WHEN THE CAR JUMPED THE ROLLERS IT BENT THE DRIVESHAFT. JUST ANOTHER
PART BROKEN TO ADD TO THE SCRAP PILE.
1969 pontiac lemans 455
Here's a video of my 69 lemans with rebuilt 455 bored .040 over (464),
speed pro pistons, edelbrock rpm camshaft, 6x-8 heads ported, comp cams
rollertip rockers, edelbrock valve springs, procomp intake, 750cfm
edelbrock carb, and flowtech headders. This combo makes great power and I
love the torque this monster makes. Next upgrade will be edelbrock aluminum
heads to really wake this beast up! Please comment on engine combo, body,
and suggestions. Thanx
