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;)

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.
