1961 Pontiac Catalina Hardtop Yel OT060113
Pontiac was at the height of its styling...lots of great things would happen for the marque during this decade! The clean modern lines went well with modern architecture...the glass wall houses and the more modest one story ranchers. Seems to me that "modern" style had its fingers in everything that people used, from their ball point pens to the kitchen appliances, to the cars they drove and the houses they lived in. Of course this car shows how adaptable it was to racing!

Mystery cars! Can you name them all? M2, 61 Chevy C10, 63 Impala.... ...enjoy? --- Nothing beats the satisfaction of chasing down and pulling old cars from their resting spots. There is a thrill in the hunt, and a joy in discovering a car that nobody else knows about. These are the cars that have been parked for whatever unknown reason ; a blown tranny, discarded in disgust, set aside for later. Many cars are sentenced to a particular spot with no release date in mind. They all have a story to tell, and one has to wonder who fell in love with the vehicle first and plunked down all their hard earned cash on the beast. Cracking open the door is like entering a ancient tomb, with the rusty hinges announcing your arrival. Every old car has it's own unique smell, some brands even possesing their own odors. Pop the hood next. Engine bays come in 3 types, complete, empty, and partially disassembled. A complete bay is the ultimate goal, for that means there is a small chance that the car might still run. An empty bay puts the car towards parts-car status, or full swap/update for sure. A half complete mill is the worst situation possible. One must play detective and figure out what went wrong and where all the missing parts currently reside. Pop the trunk, and it's time to go treasure hunting. The trunk can hold anything from missing parts and nos trim, to possums and many other shocking items forgotten over time. The adventures of moving a car that has not moved in decades is immediately present. Brakes stick, bearings freeze, tires are square and downright ignorant, and every immobile wreck instantly gains 1 ton over its still-mobile twin. Might be the 1800 pounds of old concrete in the trunk, the one the owner conveniently "lost" the keys for. Many times there is things in the way that were not present when the car was parked 45 years ago. Naturally, not all these cars go into the garage and come out show queens. Some get fixed, few get finished, and most get slated for parts service. The ones that do not meet one persons standards get pawned off on fresh hunters with less money and more ambition. Maybe the car will help out to get another twin out of the weeds also and back on the road. But one thing is for certain, once the derelict wreck is loaded, the standard question always asked is "Do you know of any more old cars around here?"

1961 Pontiac Bonneville Two Door Hardtop BluWht RennMD020913
Beautifully restored...lean and mean compared to previous offerings! I'm very impressed with the use of color in the interior...and the very cool steering wheel...steering wheels historically have been and important styling cue for cars, and this is no exception.

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!





Chevy and Pontiac graveyard. Melbourne,Australia.
So many of these graveyards exist all over the world. This one from right here in Melbourne,Australia. Where in Melbourne this place is i don't know. These are all original rhd's too.All Aussie assembled and sold new here. There should be a law against this. These old analogue pics were given to my brother about 10 years ago now by an old workmate of his. The pics were already quite old back then,so much so that the guy couldn't remember where this place was. These pics are definately from the 80s and there is a red kodak stamp on the back of each photo with 'dec 85' next to it. I'm convinced that's the date they were developed.

Dick Beith's 1961 36hp Bonneville Record.wmv
Big thanks to Burly Burlisle for supplying the VHS original of this film clip taken from a period documentary entitled Men, Salt & Speed and to Kevin Wiggins for making the digital conversion. Dick Beith is still around and like a few other 1960s VW trailblazers is still very competitive at 74 years. The year after this 1961 video Dick developed the first aluminum center-riveted to steel rim wheel, simulating the famous American Mag Torque Thrust, five spoke. His company, The Wheel Center became one of the largest aftemarket wheel makers in the world which allowed Dick to own and race a car at Indianapolis in the mid-seventies. His current project, the Competition Coupé will be built to full SCTA/BNI specifications allowing him to race on the longer three mile Bonneville course and will be powered by a supercharged, 1450cc 36hp engine. The 36hp Challenge record he is planning to beat his is own 129.100 speed set in 1963 with a blown Lakester and the Bonneville class record he hopes to break is 148 miles per hour (H/BFC).
