1979 Pontiac Bonneville Safari Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I bring you all a blast from the past, I give a full in depth
tour of the 1979 Pontiac Bonneville Safari. I take viewers on a close look
through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over
viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself.
I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it
sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to
give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
My '79 Caprice (Bought New, Been in the Family Ever Since)
One of GM's last all-new line of full-size cars, the '79 Caprice and Impala
2-doors, with their infamous "bent" window glass, were in the last year of
a body style that was introduced for the 1977 model year.
These "downsized" full-size cars were almost a foot shorter and 700 pounds
lighter than the '76's they replaced. But, trunk space and interior room
stayed the same. In one year, the 350 V8 went from being the smallest
engine you could get in a big Chevy to being the largest.
As big Chevys had been for years, they were traditional body-on-frame
construction, but they were the first cars to be partially designed and
engineered using CAD-CAM (Computer aided design-computer aided
GM's other B-body cars, the Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville, Olds 88, and
Buick LeSabre, and larger C-bodies, the Buick Electra, Olds 98 and Cadillac
DeVille/Fleetwood, also got the downsizing treatment in '77.
Almost a million-and-a-half full-size Chevy sedans, coupes and wagons were
sold in those three years, unfortunately not enough to take back the
number-one sales spot from the mid-size Olds Cutlass.
The universal complaint back then was that GM had made the Chevy full-size
cars TOO small. (In '77, they were only slightly longer than a "mid-size"
Chevy Malibu. How times change;-)
For the 1980 model year, they were mildly restyled, and that basic body
lasted 11 years, until the "pregnant whale" '91-'96 models, which, along
with the Buick Roadmaster, Olds Custom Cruiser and Cadillac Fleetwood
Brougham (all based on the same '77-vintage chassis), were the last
body-on-frame big cars GM would ever build.
This one was bought new by my mom in September of 1979 for (take your heart
medicine now) $7,500.
Thanks to an oil shortage and subsequent doubling in the price per gallon
of gas that summer, sales of full-size cars had fallen off a cliff, so she
had her pick of in-stock colors and options. If you've tried to find a
clean '77-79 Caprice or Impala 2-door, you know it's next to impossible. So
imagine visiting City Chevrolet, a Chicago dealer that was located in a
series of old multi-story warehouses, and riding the freight elevator with
the salesman to one of the enclosed upper-floor new-car storage areas.
There, parked nose-to-tail and mirror-to-mirror, were at least 40 Caprice
and Impala 2-doors, including the rare Landau models. Too bad City
routinely undercoated all its cars. (A side note: City Chevrolet supplied
the City of Chicago with its Impala and Caprice cop cars until the day GM
This one was bought at the now-vanished Circle Chevrolet at 82nd and
Racine. It has very few options: the 305 V8, A/C, a rear window defogger
and AM/FM stereo with 8-track player and rear speakers. Mom had it
Ziebarted a month after she bought it, which partially accounts for the
shape it's in now.
It replaced a green '68 Impala 4-door hardtop with 78,000 miles, a 307 V8,
Powerglide, drum brakes all around and no A/C, bought new by my dad.
In her care, this one's led a pretty sedate existence. Except for a road
trip to Washington D.C. in 1980 and a period of about six months where I
commuted in it to Argonne National Laboratory, no long drives. Pretty much
to the grocery store, to her friends' homes, and to church.
The locking wire wheel covers became necessary in 1983 after the original
wheel covers kept getting stolen.
Also that year, a Metra road crew dropped a load of track ballast on it as
she sat under a viaduct at a stoplight. Allstate (bless them) paid for all
the repairs to the body and the pitted glass and litigated with Metra for
the next seven years.
When she passed on a few years ago, I inherited it. I'm basically keeping
it the way it is. No Corvette motor. No 22's. No thumping stereo. It needs
a little body work (after 28 Chicago winters, what did you expect?), and as
soon as a little more money comes in, I've got to take care of the
windshield wiper motor and find a set of the original wheel covers.
It just got a new brake master cylinder and fuel pump (ouch!), and winter's
coming, so converting the A/C from R12 to R134 will have to wait.
But other than that, it runs like a top, and the interior's in almost
perfect shape. And on sunny days, it's great to pull off the cover, back it
out of the garage, and drive one of the last of GM's big cars. After
zipping around in my Fiero, it's like driving a Cadillac (I used to drive
my uncle's '79 Coupe de Ville, and the ride wasn't much smoother than this
As with the Fiero, master GM mechanic Dave Armstrong keeps it running
right. If you're in the Chicago area, get in touch with him at
(773)282-1444. He'll keep your car on the road or get it back on the road
if it isn't.
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.
1979 Pontiac Trans Am 301
1979 Pontiac Trans Am 301 NA fresh build, first startup & cam break in.
Completely restored to stock, using all stock parts sources in the US.
Upper hose sucked flat from lack of coolant and possibly a bad (new STANT)
rad cap not letting fluid in. Has been resolved, purring like a kitten now.
Slight clacking noise is PCV and a bad alternator bearing
