Pontiac GTO damn it's fast
READ DESCRIPTION BEFORE VIEWING!!
at 2,50 in this clip, look at the bottom left corner. That's the best
camera that shows how FRINKIN' FAST this car actually are. This is probably
one of the fastest street-legal cars in the world. 1/8 mile at 5,52s/204
km/h with this 1150 HP engine. But with the 2000+ HP engine it's 4,69s/252
km/h at 1/8 mile and 7,30s/300 km/h at 1/4 mile.
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.

FASTEST STREET CAR IN AMERICA - Tom Bailey's 217 MPH '69 Camaro!
1000 miles, 4 tracks, 5 days, and 5 six second passes, if that doesn't
prove that this is the fastest street car in America (possibly the world),
I don't know what does! Tom Bailey and Steve Morris not only won Drag Week
2013, but they are also the first to run 5 consecutive six second passes at
Nunzi's 1963 4 Cylinder Super Duty Tempest

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.
