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;)

1950 Pontiac Silver Streak Hot Rod - Olds Rocket V8
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1950 Pontiac Silver
Streak. This 50's hot rod is powered by an Olds Rocket V8, backed by an
automatic trans. It's not a show car, but it is a nice quality driver.
The body is straight, the interior has been redone, and all the trim is in
very good shape. A little painting and detailing under the hood and it
would definitely be ready for some local shows. It's starts up and runs
well and sounds good through that dual Exhaust. I hope you find it interesting, thanks
for taking a look!

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.
1960 Pontiac Ventura Restoration
The poor man's restoration of my 1960 Pontiac Ventura 4-door hardtop Vista
continues! Thanks for watching! Subscribe to see more progress, as I get
deeper into this makeover. This video is a basic overview of my actually
getting started on the car. It's the school of hard-knocks here, as I
embark on things like bondo and primering...stuff I've never done before!
The Hawaiian climate here with lots of rain and humidity sometimes makes it
tough with no garage....all done with just a tarp for cover!
Thanks for looking!

"Ride Pontiac Ride" 1988 Advertising Promo (FULL VERSION)
Ripped from the "30 Millionth Pontiac Wentzville Assembly GM Bonneville
SSEi UAW 2250" page on Facebook; all credit for finding and researching
this gem goes to them. I'm upping it here in hopes that someone is able to
eventually remaster the audio for better clarity.
The original description on their page is as follows:
There are other versions of the 1988 Ride Pontiac Ride extended commercial
similar to this on youtube and testdrivejunkie, but I have not come across
the complete 2:32 version like this one.
For the 1988 model year, Pontiac unveiled one of the strongest line-ups it
had offered in many years. Finally almost every model was aligned with the
Pontiac image as documented in the image statement (see post -
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=179043175453938&l=cb4447b618 ). The
Fiero suspension had been re-designed, the new FWD Grand Prix was about to
be selected Motor Trend Car of the Year, the new Bonneville SSE was
introduced, and I could go on and on.
Pontiac knew this was the right time to invest in a significant new
marketing promotion, so the folks over at the Pontiac advertising agency,
D'Arcy Masius Benton & Bowles in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan came up with
the "Ride Pontiac Ride" campaign. Art Director Mark Zapico working under
Executive Creative Director Steve Kopcha and Creative Director Noel Nauber,
decided they needed an original theme song for the Pontiac commercials. The
song was composed by songwriter Mark Vieha who was co-partner along with
Jay Kennedy in the Studio City California based music house, LA-NY Music.
Vieha and Kennedy are also known for the Taco Bell theme song, "make a run
for the border" and Vieha also composed original music for movie
soundtracks. For the jingle "get on your Pontiac and ride" Vieha recalled
he was at a barbecue and just started humming the song.
This extended commercial was a signifant piece in the Ride Pontiac Ride
campaign. Many of the scenes, like of the band performing and people
interacting with Pontiac cars as the backdrop, were shot in and around
Toronto Canada for about a month in the fall of 1987, by Director Bob
Canning who was a Canadian and Director of Photography Oliver Wood. Other
DMB & B folks that might have been involved are Don Massey who worked with
Noel Nauber, Bruce Duffey and Rob Torz.
The lead singer of the scenes that appear in this commercial of the band
performing is Mark Campbell and the female lead is Canadian singer Alannah
Myles. The campaign was a huge success. Dealers included the phrase "ride
Pontiac ride" in their newspaper and print media advertisements.
The campaign not only caught the attention of the car buying public, it
also invigorated the dealers and motivated the entire Pontiac Division and
propelled Pontiac to 1988 US annual model year sales of 740,928 vehicles
which was good enough for 3rd place and represented 7.1% of the US market
and accounted for 20% of GM sales.The last time Pontiac had been in 3rd
place was 1973. The success of the campaign continue for annual model year
1989 with US sales of 734,658 vehicles which was again good enough for 3rd
place and represented 7.2% of the US market.
Note: the annual model year is the 12 month period from October 1 to
September 30 so it generally reflects current model year sales but includes
a bit of the prior model year that sell late and a bit of the next model
year that sell early and excludes the current model year that sells late.
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.
