This is my Thanksgiving present to you! What a beautiful car...and a sleeper too if you just assume it's a "normal" Catalina! This is a tri-power motor, and it has a 4 speed manual transmission too! If we had only known at the time what a keeper this is...they would have had to make a lot more of these! I love those 8 lug wheels...Pontiac was ahead of the curve in supplying beautiful wheels for their cars!
1963 Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk
This is an auction car..ready for the gavel. Looks pretty good...missing a
pushbutton on the driver's door handle. Notice the chrome bows in the
interior roof...gives it the convertible look. 289 c.i. engine has a
Studebaker did an excellent job with its instrument panels....dials and
switches had that aeronautical appearance to them. I was always intrigued
by these cars when a youngster.
1962 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster Convertible
This beautiful example has the twin tonneau caps that disguise this four
seater as a two seater! The sports roadster tonneau was only offered on
the 1962 and 1963 models. Very sporty indeed! Notice the "swing-away"
steering wheel and column...made getting in and out of the vehicle easier.
1953 Chrysler Windsor 4 door sedan
This was an auction car...and a good example of a luxury car of 1953
presented to you by Chrysler! The fabrics were of high quality, and the
engine in this series was a flathead 6. The senior models had the ohv V8.
Chrysler was making the transition from semi-automatic fluid drive (this
car) to Powerflite two speed automatic. Notice the quadrant on the
steering column. 1954 would be the last year for the 6 cylinder engine.
1968 Plymouth Satellite GTX hardtop
What's not to like about this car! 440 c.i. engine with 4 barrel carb!
Torqueflite automatic could stand up to this monster engine! Great
interior, very clean engine compartment, red line tires and great wheels!
These were the glory days for Plymouth...too bad they didn't continue!

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 - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
