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;)

1965 Corvette Convertible For Sale
A walkaround and underside video for a 1965 Corvette Convertible for sale
at our dealership.
Goldwood Yellow exterior, Black interior, Black convertible top. 240hp
350ci GM crate engine (original numbers matching 250hp 327ci engine also
included), 4 speed manual transmission. This 1965 Corvette Convertible has
a very straight body, and is in very original condition. Paint on this car
is in fair condition; trim tag is missing. Convertible top is also fair,
with a few small tears but a relatively clear window. Original chrome
bumpers are in good condition, not showing any rust or dings, as are the
original chrome exterior door handles. Judging by the hardware present on
the tonneau cover, this car more than likely was originally equipped with
an auxiliary hardtop. Although the original top probably found its way onto
another car years ago, a hardtop can be added for an additional fee. Please
see a salesman for details. Weatherstripping is somewhat dry, but intact on
the doors. Taillights show normal cracking from age. This 1965 Corvette
Convertible currently wears a set of original hubcaps in fair condition,
with a set of BF Goodrich Premier Touring blackwall tires showing
approximately 75% treadlife remaining and no dry-rotting. The interior of
this car is just as original as the outside, with original seat covers,
door panels, carpet, gauges, seatbelts, center console, and steering wheel.
All of these items are in fair original condition. A cassette player has
been added in the original location, and features the "Corvette" nameplate.
A Hurst shifter has also been added to this car. The engine compartment of
this 1965 Corvette Convertible has been extensively detailed, and features
an Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake. A Weber carburetor currently
delivers the fuel for this vehicle. Although a GM crate engine currently
resides in this engine bay, the original, numbers matching 250hp 327ci
engine is also included, and can be rebuilt if this car is to be set back
to stock. Frame appears to be solid, and has been nicely detailed. Drive
as-is, or restore to show quality, this car has plenty of eye appeal and is
guaranteed to turn heads! Factory features include 4 speed manual
transmission, AM-FM radio, auxiliary hardtop (missing), power steering,

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.
Flawless 1969 Pontiac Firebird 400
Dave Armstrong, the master GM mechanic who keeps my Fiero on the road, did
a frame-up restoration on this flawless, award-winning 1969 Pontiac
Firebird 400. (Quick, all you old-timers. What were the names of the other
Firebird models available that year? No peeking.)
I'm always amazed at his ability to find NOS parts that aren't even being
made anymore by anyone, especially GM.
Dave takes this car to Pontiac shows during the summer; don't miss the
opportunity to see it up close and personal. This video doesn't do it
If you have a GM car (or any other car or truck, for that matter), and you
live in the Chicago area, take it to him. Ace Muffler, 7157 W. Irving Park
Rd., near Harlem/Irving Plaza. (773)282-1444. How good is he? When he
replaced the Iron Duke in my Fiero, his years of experience allowed him to
take the old one out through the top instead of dropping the rear
suspension and drivetrain, as Pontiac recommended. Yes, he knows his
And anyone who would take a car like this into Chicago evening rush-hour
traffic is either very brave or knows that he could build another one just
like it, which he could;) That lap-dissolve at 3:16 was necessitated by a
very rude, very obscene comment and hand gesture by the female passenger in
that Toyota Yaris. Pure jealousy, that's all that was.
That Firebird 400 V8 sound is music. If you have stereo speakers on your
computer, turn them up.
He's also restoring a '69 Pontiac Ventura, which I shot video of and will
be uploading later on.
