A Tribute to Pontiac

A quick overview of Pontiac Motor Division, from the first Pontiac-branded car built in 1926 and its beginnings as an offshoot of the Oakland car company, to the final '09 and '10 cars. Also features some commercial and movie footage in which Pontiacs played an important role. My first car was and is a 1985 Pontiac 6000 STE, and I want a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT very badly someday, so the brand's elimination came as a shock and a huge disappointment to me. I hope Pontiac may one day return, but for now, this video is my farewall salute to a great brand with a great history. Enjoy. Thanks to all people who supplied the photographs and video clips. A few of the pictures are my own, all others have been borrowed from others and I take no credit for their creation. All content is property of its respective owners. Music: The Chemical Brothers - "Surface to Air" I'd like to make a big thank you to J16FOX2 for his help in making this video. Please check out his videos. Thanks!

I Dream of Jeannie 1965 Pontiac GTO Opening Scene
Major Nelson's 1965 Pontiac GTO convertible is featured in this short opening clip from one of the Black & White I Dream of Jeannie episodes from the first 1965-66 season. Pontiac provided cars for the entire run of the 1965-70 series, and yet oddly GM and Pontiac Motor Division were not credited for this in the closing credit rolls. The ultra-popular GTOs were the vehicle of choice for Tony Nelson in the first three seasons, where '65, '66, and '67 GTO convertibles were provided. Bonnevilles and Firebirds picked up the task for the last 2 years of the show. Oh Major Nelson, for heaven's sake - PLEASE NOTE: Fair use and educational value on TV History are the purpose of this posting, 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.





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).
