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;)

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

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.
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.
