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

Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Chuck Cushner Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.

Driving a 1964 4-speed Wildcat
Here is a little drive in a real-deal 2x4 4-speed Wildcat, stock 425, T-10 trans, 3.42 positrac, and carbs. It moves pretty good for a 4200lb full size boat (without passengers and so on). The T-10 has a cool whine to it, kind of like an M-21 or M-22. Just a fun drive around the block, with a little gratuitous acceleration.

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).

Epic Lambrecht Chevrolet Auction - Wheels of Misfortune
If you missed this incredible auction in person, this is the vid to watch! Chevrolet Dealer Ray Lambrecht of Pierce, Nebraska, hoarded about 500 cars and trucks during his over 50 years in business. Many of these vechicles were new or low mileage trade-ins. At this auction Sept 28 - 29 2013, they were all finally set free and sold to the highest bidder. Most were badly weathered hulks after 40 - 50 or more years of exposure. A handful were breathtakingly original gems. At least two local folks who traded thier cars 40+ years ago bought them back. The crowd was huge. Prices were extrodinary. The sale totaled slightly over $3 million including buyer's fee making this the richest crop ever sold at the Lambrecht farm. Truly this was a once-in-a-lifetime field of dreams and memories.Enjoy.





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.
