Shakedown Pass on 1963 Pontiac Le Mans - APS Racing USA & RJ Fabrication

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. Owner: • Mike Artman

Hungry for more, Nunzi, the crew, and his 4 Cylinder '63 Tempest headed back to Atco Racetrack in hopes to break 11's. Success came early in the day hitting 11.74. When the spectators asked Nunzi if he was satisfied with the 11.74 run, he quickly replied "I'm not done yet." -Thanks to my son Tony for his hard work and the gang for their help, Kenan(camera man), Andy, Matt, Jimmy, Jones.

557,000 Miles and Counting (She's 90; Her Car's 45; Both Are Still On The Road)
At 90 years old, this Depression-era great-grandmother from Orlando, Fla., has a lesson for all of us about surviving in a tough economy. Shes still driving her 1964 Mercury Comet Caliente. Price back then: $3,289. Thats less than the $4,500 the government gives to trash a car today in the cash for clunkers program. She jokes her car has been oh-so-faithful. She's better than three husbands," Veitch said. Shes never lied to me, shes never cheated on me, and I can always depend on her. But with nearly 600,000 miles on the odometer, the real story is in those lifetime warranties. She paid Midas $42.23 for a lifetime muffler. Such a deal! Midas has replaced her muffler seven times. Ditto with JCPenney and her battery: Shes had 17 batteries replaced. Even though JCPenney no longer has an automotive department, they still make arrangements to honor her contract. Then theres Sears and the shock absorbers. Sears has replaced her shocks three times. Three cheers for Rachel, who has collected for all Americans who bought extended warranties but for some loophole reason, never collected. As I sat with Rachel in her living room, teapot on a doily, I felt I could be with anyones grandmother in America. But when we hopped behind the wheel of her baby, the car she nicknamed Chariot so long ago, her bright eyes and tight grip confirmed Rachel, like her car, is an American original. She picked up her 1970s-era CB radio, flipped over to channel 19 and asked, Is anyone out there? Static. No answer. Without missing a beat, she joked, I guess theyre all dead. If there was ever a person who loves to kid around, loves cars, and is as quick as a rabbit start in a Mercury with a 260 V8, its Rachel. Shes pushed her car up to 120 miles per hour. The speedometer quits at 120, so I could have been going faster, she said. Rachel, a retired nurse, enjoys showing off her car to auto enthusiasts. Her goal (yes, folks in their 90s still have goals) is to one day go toe-to-toe with another funny, car-loving American: Jay Leno. As they used to say in the old radio days: Stay tuned.

Pontiac Performance History, Part 2

Primeira volta no meu Dodge Dart 77 (same 69 American Dodge Dart): Assim nasce um Mopar Man
Primeiro registro de um rolé no meu Dodge Dart 76/77 e a primeria volta do João Lucas em um V8. Começou bem de Mopar. Obs: O carro foi comprado em Julho mas só agora, final de Novembro, pude dar uma volta. First ride with my 76 Brazilian Dodge Dart (same 69 American Dodge Dart, but different grille). This Mopar reborn after 15 years asleep. Dashboard off for restoration. V8 318 with Short Headman headers. Believe or not, this Mopar is running with its stock carburator, a awful Weber 446 2bbl carburator. : (

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.





1950 Pontiac Silver Streak Hot Rod - Olds Rocket V8
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1950 Pontiac Silver Streak. This 50's hot rod is powered by an Olds Rocket V8, backed by an automatic trans. It's not a show car, but it is a nice quality driver. The body is straight, the interior has been redone, and all the trim is in very good shape. A little painting and detailing under the hood and it would definitely be ready for some local shows. It's starts up and runs well and sounds good through that dual Exhaust. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
