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.
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.

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?
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
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
