1964 Pontiac "GRAND PRIX" TV AD
When "MEN WERE MEN" and "CARS WERE CARS", nothing like today on BOTH counts. ---Especially with FART CANNED LOUD CARS that have A LOUD BARK and SMALLER BITE. I saw a road test from back in the day of one of these early '421 HO' Grand Prixs knocking off 0-60 in the high 5s low 6s on crappy bias ply tires of the day and the 'slusho-matic' automatic trans (pre 1965 with the good TH400 tranny). --And those times were 'stock' WITH NONE OF MY SUPER TUNING!
PONTIAC - The Glory Years! Part 2 of 5
(1956-93). Some great basic Pontiac history, along with the CARS and PEOPLE (Bunkie Knudsen, John Delorean, Jim Wangers, Pete Estes, etc) who made Pontiac great in those years. In 1956 Bunkie Knudsen was hired as Pontiac's General Manager. He was told by GM "Turn Pontiac around in 5 years or the division is gone". Within about a year he quickly assembled a great team. Knudsen was fortunate enough to pick up engineer John Delorean from Packard when that company closed, Delorean later became the father of the GTO and MANY Pontiac Innovations. Knudsen was also fortunate enough to lure a brilliant "Olds Rocket V8" engineer away from Oldsmobile---Pete Estes who helped the Pontiac V8 breath as well as it could.
