Bob Lutz's "Icons and Idiots" - Autoline After Hours 205
If it exists in the automotive world, he's got an opinion on it. And, he
won't be afraid to tell you what he really thinks. The man of the hour is
the cigar-chomping, helicopter flying, car guy's car guy Bob Lutz. He's
just recently been inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame and has
authored a new book, "Icons and Idiots." We'll be picking his brain about
the state of the automotive industry with no particular agenda in mind, but
make no mistake, this will be a wide-ranging, engaging discussion with the
man who couldn't mince a word if he wanted to. Joining John McElroy in
studio is co-host Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Csaba Csere from
the Valvefloat Group.

132642 / 1957 Pontiac Bonneville
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6oheg7a
Named in honor of the salt flats where speed records have been set for
decades, this fuel injected 1957 Pontiac is one of the rarest and most
desirable 50s collector cars ever produced.
Fresh out of a complete frame off restoration in which not a penny was
spared, this Pontiac is decidedly one of the most impressive cars I've ever
seen. The smooth Harley Earl designed body panels are completely free of
any waves or blemishes and the cars straight and narrow panel gaps are
likely much better than what came from the factory 54 years ago. On top of
the clean body, familiar Kenya Ivory paint, worn by all 1957 Bonnevilles,
displays an excellent shine. And on the sides of the car, Bonneville Red
'splashes' complete a look that was shared by most of the 630 cars
Under the hood of this '57 Bonneville you'll find an original 347 cubic
inch fuel injected V8 with a 10.25 to 1 compression ratio and, according to
Pontiac, 'over 300 horsepower'. On top of the
motor, an original Rochester fuel injection system receives cool air from a
correct black "Pontiac" decaled air cleaner that is piped to the front of
the car and covered in steel mesh. In front of the air cleaner, a correctly
tagged Delco generator is spun by a new V-belt, and behind the fuel
injection system a correct points distributor sends spark through correct
black plug wires. On the left side of the motor, factory correct standard
power steering sits behind a correct black radiator which sends and
receives water through correct hoses with correct clamps. Hanging from the
cars correctly marked Ivory fire wall is a correct glass Cadillac decaled
reservoir that holds windshield washer fluid and a correct heater blower
that pipes warm air to the interior through vents in the cars kick panels.
Behind this Pontiac's fuel injected 347 V8 is an original Strato Flight
Hydra-Matic 4-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a correctly
rebuilt rear end. Braking is handled by standard equipment power drum
brakes that bring the car to a stop in a surprisingly short distance, and
turning is aided by standard equipment power steering that both improves
handling and makes slow speed navigation a lot more manageable in this long
and heavy car. Above the suspension, the cars floor pans are exceptionally
solid and display a fresh coat of red undercoating, and all of the small
details such as new stainless fuel lines new brake hoses, a new stainless
fuel tank and a factory correct replacement Exhaust system have been installed to a very
high standard. Putting the power to the pavement is four Bonneville Red 14
inch factory steel wheels that feature stainless tri-blade wheel covers and
8.50-14 wide white wall tires.
Loaded with every option in the book except air conditioning, this
Bonneville's interior features a perfect mix of outrageous style and
typical American luxury. The front eight-way power seat is covered in
Tartan Red and Ivory leather and features chrome adjustment buttons, new
lap belts and a complimentary color design to the pristine rear leather
seat. In front of the power seat, a Bonneville Red dash is capped by a
great looking Tartan Red pad and finished by mirror-like stainless lower
panels that house chrome knobs for the cars accessories. In front of the
driver, a bright stainless instrument bezel houses a horizontal speedometer
over round chrome trimmed gauges for the cars vitals, controls for the cars
heater, a standard Wonderbar AM radio and a standard continuous motion
clock. Below the dash, like-new red carpet sits below chrome trimmed pedals
that feature awesome "Brake" and "Power" lettering and features no wear and
tear at all. In front of the driver, a standard equipment deluxe steering
wheel features a chrome horn ring inside a marbled Ivory rim, and sits in
front of a chrome column mounted gear selector, a chrome gear indicator and
a chrome turn signal stalk. At the center of the steering wheel, stylized
"Pontiac" script sits on a mesh-look backing below a "Power Steering"
emblem that incorporates a traditional gold Pontiac indian head insignia.
This investment grade 1957 Bonneville is one of the finest Pontiacs left on
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

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!

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.
1961 Pontiac Bonneville Covnertible
1961 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible for Sale in Chicago. The Bonneville
remained as Pontiac's costliest and most luxurious model throughout the
1960s and was instrumental in pushing Pontiac to third place in sales from
1962 to 1970. The Bonneville differed from its lesser Catalina and Star
Chief counterparts by featuring more luxurious interior trim with upgraded
cloth and Morrokide vinyl or expanded Morrokide upholstery in sedans and
coupes, expanded Morrokide in Safari wagons or genuine leather seating in
convertibles. Bonnevilles (with the exception of Bonneville Safari Station
wagons) were also (along with Star Chiefs) built on a longer wheelbase
version of GM's B-Body. Also found in the Bonneville were instrument panels
and door panels with walnut veneer trim, carpeted lower door panels, grab
bar on passenger side of dash and courtesy lights and rear arm rest. This
Bonneville Convertible has a 389 4brl, 313 horsepower engine, and a
Hydramatic automatic transmission. Options on this car are power
convertible top, power steering and brakes (Wonder Touch), factory AM radio
with an aftermarket radio in the glove box, manual antenna, bucket seats,
full set of Fisher seat belts, Heavy Duty air cleaner, E-Z-Eye glass, 8 lug
wheels with radial white wall tires, back up lamps, passenger side visor
mirror, rear speaker, windshield washer setup, fender mounted side view
remote mirror, clock, fender skirts, ok top boot, dual Exhaust, vinyl interior, and matching Pontiac
floor mats. This car runs and drives great! There is a small patched
section in the convertible top, but the rear glass is still clear. Top
functions properly. This Pontiac is ready for summer fun! 1961 Pontiac
