Pontiac Banshee A Longer Look
The Banshee was a vision for what the Firebird could become. Of course,
this concept car could never be built exactly, too low on the road and it
wouldn't pass the safety and crash tests, but it was exciting. It
demonstrated that the problem with GM cars didn't sit on the designers'
shoulders. They were more than capable of dreaming up engaging and fun
vehicles that would set imaginations on fire.

Wow this is one Hot 65 Grand Prix.
This is one of the cleanest GP's I have seen in a long time.
This Grand Prix was owned by an exclusive GM engineer as you can see in the
door jam it was signed by him. It came originally with a 389 motor now has
one of Pontiac's rarest 421 HO Spec. Order YT Blocks 1 Of 29 Made, with Tri
Power. This car runs like a top. The body is straight as and arrow as you
can see in the pics and it shifts on the money. Interior is near perfect
condition the only thing I could see wrong was the wood laminate curling up
on the dash and console. It has the Pontiac 8 lug wheels even the rear
speaker in the back seat works. Power antenna, A/C. Paint is impeccable,
Chrome is gorgeous this is a true winner no disappointments with this bad

1966 GTO drag racing 2011 Pontiac Nationals in Norwalk, OH Mike Green from 1AAuto.com
When he is not filming How To Videos you might find Mike Green behind the
wheel of his '66 GTO drag car. He does most of the work on the car himself
with the help of friends and family. These passes were filmed at the 2011
Pontiac Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk Ohio. The air was
hot and humid when this was filmed so times were off. As of August 2011
best pass is 10.531 @ 126.03 mph.
Lot S152 1962 Pontiac Super Duty 421 405 HP 4 Speed
As Stock drag racing heated up at the dawn of the Sixties, the factories
were serving up a constant stream of engines, transmissions and lightweight
body parts. In response, the sanctioning bodies started dedicated classes
to separate the special lightweight factory racers from the amateur weekend
sportsmen running real showroom stockers.
Pontiac answered the competition in 1962 by offering an expanding range of
performance parts and special option packages, the most potent being the
Catalina Super Stock package. At its heart was the 421 CI Super Duty engine
featuring four-bolt mains, a forged steel crank, McKellar solid lifter cam
and dual Carter four-barrel carbs on an aluminum intake. A 4-speed manual
transmission was optional. The Catalina Super Stock saved considerable
weight through the application of aluminum bumpers, hood, fenders and other
alloy components, including, late in the season, an aluminum-case 4-speed.
Owned and raced by Howard Maseles in 1962, the "Packer Pontiac" was number
84 of the run of approximately 180 SS Catalinas. An NHRA C Stock record
holder, the "Packer Pontiac" was lightning quick in Maseles' hands, posting
an 11.73 at the 1962 Indy Nationals, at a time when many of his competitors
were still running in the low-to-mid 12s.
The restoration of this vintage Super Duty Pontiac was done by owner Bill
Blair, High Point, NC and the car is still being campaigned by Bill across
the country at drag strips and car shows.
