Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some
they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing.
Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their
capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac
Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by
its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a
Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated
suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is
outside-the-box styling at its best.

Firing up A Brand New Chevy 409 Engine
My dad and I built a Chevy 409ci engine, and we fired it up for the first
time today. It has a roller camshaft and valve train setup, so it didn't
need the always worrysome break in procedure that a flat tappet engine
requires. This video is from the second time we ran it, as we had to shut
it down on the first try, due to a coolant leak. All of the smoke is from
the anti-freeze on the headers, and the fact that they're brand new
headers. Here's a spec list on the engine:
1963 Chevrolet 409 block (stock bore)
1961 409 forged crankshaft
Stock connecting rods
1963 high performance forged pistons
11:1 compression ratio
ARP Main Studs, Rod Bolts, Head bolts, and accessory bolts
Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum cylinder heads
Comp Cams hydraulic roller 236/242 duration at .050-inch lift, .578/.593
max lift, 110 LSA
Comp Cams roller lifters, pushrods, Comp Ultra Pro Magnum 1.7:1 rocker arms
Edelbrock Performer RPM dual quad intake with dual 500cfm four-barrel
Edelbrock as-cast finned aluminum valve covers (air cleaner not pictured)
Edelbrock aluminum water pump
Pertronix billet distributor, coil and plug wires
Hooker 1-7/8-inch Super Competition headers
Engine break-in and initial tuning is being performed on a home-made engine
run in stand, complete with a battery, fuel supply and cooling system. Stay
tuned for more videos on this engine, as we tune it, in preparation for
some Dyno time.
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

Rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible Fuel-Injected 347 V8 315HP
I thought you'd like a look at this extremely rare 1957 Pontiac Bonneville
Convertible. 1957 was the first year for the Bonneville and it was only
offered as a convertible. When it was introduced, the Bonneville was the
fastest Pontiac ever produced. This Bonneville is number 116 of the only
630 produced in 1957. This is probably the finest restored example ever
offered for sale. It has been treated to a correct frame-off/rotisserie
restoration. Every part of this car is 100% factory correct and numbers
matching. Every component was restored to as new or better condition. Most
of the chrome was NOS and it all, the interior and exterior was show chrome
plated. The Bonneville is painted in Kenya Ivory with a Tartan red
interior. Boasts a fuel injected 347 300+hp( approximately 315 HP) V8,
Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, Wonderbar AM radio, a deluxe ivory
steering wheel, a padded dash, a clock, cowl vent, chrome wheel discs, and
whitewall tires. It has the total power group including a power-operated
convertible top, a power antenna, power steering, power brakes, power
windows, and an eight-way power-operated seat. This Bonneville was judged
396 out of 400 at the Pontiac Oakland Club Nationals and has been awarded
in every show it's been shown at. The 1957 Bonneville is a very rare car.
This Bonneville is one of the best of its kind in the world - it is
pristine museum quality. Thanks for taking a look!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and
later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the
FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s
early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described
in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru
1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch
displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in
1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It
eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM
divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac).
PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the
1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The
1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in
the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced.
Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block
was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980
the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8
blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25
pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.
Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
• Chuck Cushner
Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is
anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak
time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government
mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us
back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a
car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the
days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis
Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.
