This was shot in 1999 at a car show in Idaho.
There's an interview with the owner of a '61 Pontiac Ventura Super Duty.
1961 Pontiac Bonneville Hardtop Slvr
Beautiful car, with a 1962-63 replacement Pontiac racing engine. The
ultimate in beauty and performance. Admittedly, not for someone who can't
afford the fuel, but this car makes a real performance statement!
1961 Pontiac Catalina Convertible..tri-power
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!

1961 Pontiac Catalina tri-power convertible
Now this is the car to have!! Beautiful paint, interior and engine
compartment. According to the owner, less than 20 remaining. This type
car was built for racing with that 389 triple carb engine, 348 horsepower, and four speed
manual transmission. Note how accessible everything was under the hood!
Most amazing is that this car is unrestored. That just goes to prove that
if you take really good care of a car, it can look like this 50 years
later!! And you can drive it, too!
PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and
later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the
FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s
early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described
in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru
1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch
displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in
1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It
eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM
divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac).
PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the
1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The
1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in
the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced.
Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block
was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980
the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8
blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25
pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.

Engine Coolant Thermostat replacement 3800 V6 engine - Pontiac Bonneville P0128 OBD II Code repair
My check engine light came on in the fall of '09 so I had the code pulled.
It was P0128- Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat
Regulating Temperature). I decided to check and replace the thermostat. It
was the problem and has been fine since. Overall the job took about 45 min
to 1 hour including draining, warming the engine, and refilling the cooling
system. It was a pretty easy fix. This problem causes the engine to run too
cool because the thermostat is stuck open, causing more coolant to go
through the radiator than necessary. Ignoring this problem causes the fuel
mixture to be too rich, which will cause poor fuel economy.
