Junkyard Walk Summer 2010 - Part 2
I just got back from visiting my favorite junkyard in the middle of
nowhere. It was mostly filled with pickup trucks, but there are a few cool
old cars from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. The junkyard was overgrown with
waist-high weeds and muddy in spots which made it hard to get around,
almost like it didn't want to give up its secrets. I had a odd feeling of
excitement and discovery mixed with sadness for the fallen cars. I had a
great time and I can't wait to visit there again.

Kenny Pierson and his Pontiac Ventura II at the track
Took the old girl to the track to play around. . Pay no attention to the
popping and cracking of the motor at about 4000 rpms. The motor let go. Won
an award at the carshow there and had to be pulled around by my buddy in a
golf cart. One of the screws on the rotor cap came out and locked up the
distributer. Tore the teeth off my composite distributer gear. Quick
fix-all better now. Car launched great and that would have been a 10 sec.

Pontiacs for 1964
John DeLorean replaced Pete Estes as general manager, and he continued the
same emphasis on performance that Bunkie Knudsen and Estes had begun.
The big news for 1964 For 1964, the Tempest and LeMans' transaxle design
was dropped and the cars were redesigned under GM's new A body platform;
frame cars with a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. The
most important of these is the GTO, short for "Gran Turismo Omologato," the
Italian for "Grand Touring, Homologated" used by Ferrari as a badge to
announce a car's official qualification for racing. In spite of a GM
unwritten edict against engines larger than 330 ci in intermediate cars,
DeLorean (with support from Jim Wangers from Pontiac's ad agency), came up
with the idea to offer the GTO as a dealer option package that included a
389 ci engine rated at 325 or 348 horsepower (260 kW).
