I got a great deal on this 1960 Catalina Safari. It has a 389 V8 engine and manual column shifted 3 speed transmission. It's is a rare 9 passenger/3 seat car that has no radio, no clock, no side view mirror, manual steering, manual brakes, power rear window, Safe-t-Trac rear axel (posi) rear stabilizer bar and "Flintstone" floorboards. I'm glad I could save this one from the crusher and hope to have it running soon... Anybody else have an old Pontiac Station Wagon?

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.

1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari Stationwagon Blu
You want to put excitement in your driving...try this 389 c.i. tri-power
with manual four on the floor! This is a real sleeper..an auction car at
Zephyrhills. A/C makes it practical year round, Note the rear facing
third seat, a common practice at the time. It helped eliminate the problem
of getting past the second seat to get to the back, but was a trade off in
that it required you to board via the tailgate. Used most likely by small
children or pets...makes you wonder about the safety of that arrangement!

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).
