1977 Pontiac Phoenix 2door sedan

Pontiac's version of the compact Chevy Nova, Olds Omega and Buick Skylark. It has the usual Pontiac styling cues including the split grille and familiar tailights. This one has really nice paint!

1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertible Blue
Nice car, very typical of the cruisers that dotted the landscape in the late 50's! This was the third year of this styling cycle that was based on the radical at the time 55 Chevy. However, Chevy kept it fresh with that dramatic anodized panel on the rear quarter! Gas filler cleverly hidden in the left tailight!





1958 Buick Century hardtop (blk/rose)
Another nice example of a muscular Buick Century....the hotrod of the Buick line at this time. Notice how the two tone color combination enhances the car. The upholstery was deluxe in every way. I do believe the California Highway Patrol employed Centurys around this time...no doubt they could apprehend any miscreants!





Davie Police Cars Challenger and MustangGT
Here are two police cars present for the local car show. One is a working police vehicle, the Challenger. The Mustang isn't street legal..with all the Mustang advertising, it may have been a gift of FoMoCo for promotional appearances. There's always been a good relationship between Detroit and police agencies, making cars to police work standards.





1968 Mercury Montego Convertible
Sister car to the Ford Torino...but this has an identity all its own. Mercury was pretty good at establishing a difference with its stablemate. Lots of wood tone trim within the car, but the same beautiful, simple lines. The hood had a strategic power bulge in the middle...letting you know there's a V8 under the hood!

It was a muscle car classic of the 1960s and 1970s. In early 1963, General Motors' management issued a ban on involvement in auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's advertising and marketing approach was heavily based on performance, and racing was an important component of that strategy. With GM's ban on factory-sponsored racing, Pontiac's young and visionary management turned its attention to emphasizing street performance. The GTO was basically a violation of GM policy, but since the GTO was an option package and not standard equipment, it fell into a loophole in the policy. The GTO was restyled for the 1965 model year. It had Pontiac's characteristic vertically stacked quad headlights. The restyled GTO had a new simulated hood scoop. Another cosmetic change was the black "egg-crate" grille. VIN 237375P337784 The previous owner of this black beauty owned the car since the early 1980's. She bought it out of Ohio. It has had a complete frame off restoration.

132630 / 1978 Pontiac Trans Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/76vcnql This extremely rare 1978 Gold Special Edition Trans Am is an all original investment grade pony car that combines enduring Pontiac performance with some of the best visual sizzle to ever come out of Detroit. Assembled at GM's Norwood Ohio manufacturing facility in July of 1978, this gold Trans Am was taken right up the road to Brown Motor Sales in Toledo Ohio and promptly sold to Pamela Kudelka who has owned it for almost 34 years. The car has been immaculately maintained and features an original coat of GM code 50 Solar Gold paint on top of 100% original body panels that have never been wrinkled or repaired. Since the car has never been disassembled, it still displays completely factory accurate panel gaps that look surprisingly good and provide great panel alignment. On top of the spectacular Solar Gold paint, a set of full outlining stripes complements an awesome brown, yellow and gold screaming chicken hood decal which amps the cars visual appeal up from 'radical' to 'out of this world'. Under the hood you'll find this Trans Ams all original L78 V8 which, at 400 cubic inches was the largest muscle car engine you could buy in 1978. At the top of that motor, an original Rochester 4 barrel carburetor sits under the cars awesome shaker scoop. Below that carburetor, original GM corporate blue paint coats the entire block and original Exhaust manifolds send Exhaust into a high performance factory Exhaust system. All the hard parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and air conditioning hanging on the fire wall are factory original; and as expected tags, markings and stamps are just where they should be from the date coded core support to the gold painted cowl tag. Underneath this Trans Am, a super solid 33 year old undercarriage tells the story of years of excellent maintenance and treatment with rock solid floor pans that still display most of their factory undercoating. Behind the motor, an original 3-speed automatic transmission sends power to an original code GM8 Posi-traction rear axle that's loaded with street friendly 2.56 gears. The cars original suspension, which includes Trans Am spec sway bars, shocks and springs combines with power front disc brakes and rear drums to provide great stopping and handling. All of the cars hardware and bushings appear to be in good shape and out back, a new stainless fuel tank is solid and leak free. Power flows to the pavement through fresh 225/70 Firestone Firehawk radials that are wrapped around the cars original Special Edition exclusive 15 inch cast aluminum wheels. Inside the car you'll find a stylish blend of original Camel Tan upholstery and Special Edition Trans Am exclusive gold trim. The cars original seats are comfortably firm and, carrying vinyl that is thicker than typical pony car attire, look like they should be in a much more modern, much more expensive car. Below the seats, tan carpet shows minimal wear and tear considering it's been through 33 years of Ohio winters and has likely been carefully protected by the cars rubber floor mats the whole time. Between the seats a simple Camel Tan console houses a storage bin behind the cars automatic shifter, and above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight around the cars mirrored tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and air conditioning and the cars never removed Delco-GM stereo. At the sides of the seats, thick Camel Tan door panels feature bright stainless trim and chrome handles for the doors handles and windows. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct gold steering wheel with a Camel Tan rim and a correct gold screaming chicken horn button. Take it to the Pontiac Nationals or drive it to work when the weather is nice, either way, you can't go wrong with this Trans Am!

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).
