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. run
1972 Pontiac Ventura II Baseline Dyno Dyno tunning the Poncho 350 with:
Hooker Headers, Magnaflow true-X 2.5" Exhaust, Edelbrock Inake, Edelbrock 1405 Carb, Pete Jackson Gears and a mild cam. The tranny starts bouncing because the TV cable was disconnected.
Pontiac Ventura II ride
Short ride in a 750+hp car. First gear only. Could not shift and hold camera too. Cold is getting better
1969 Pontiac Ventura Being Restored
Take note, GM. 40 years from now, will people be taking the time and energy to restore CTS's, Lucernes and FWD Impalas to their original conditions? Doubtful.
Here's a jewel from your glorious past, being restored by Chicago mechanic Dave Armstrong. This '69 Ventura (a trim package on the Catalina in the 1960's) spent almost all of its life in Palm Springs. That brown coating you see on the rear undercarriage and differential isn't rust -- it's sand. When it's power-washed, it'll look as clean as the underside from the differential forward.
It's great to see the front end without the fenders, showing off that 428 V8, disc brakes and front suspension in all their glory.
As you can see, that's the original Harrison air conditioning unit. Black Morrokide upholstery and Pontiac 5-spoke mag wheels will complete the picture. It'll be another showpiece, just like his green Firebird 400.
Dave's also got a red Firebird Ram Air convertible. But that's another video;)
