Pontiac Ventura - Hot Rod Red - Quick Blast Down the Road

We took the my friend's Ventura out for a ride the other day. We'll have to do a better quality vid in the future, but I'll post this one for now. The powerful sound coming out of that thing just overpowered my camera's mic and you really don't get a good sense of the speed involved. I'll get my mic rigged up correctly and get a video from outside the car one of these days.

96 Mercury Cougar XR7 4.6V8, Hot Rod Red, Quick Blast to Check Camera Audio
Testing out the mic on the camera to see if it can capture the sound of a much quieter car. The hot rods I've been trying to film lately have been too loud. It seems the Cougar proved to be too loud as well, sounded a bit like a space shuttle launch. I'm going to have to devise a better way to capture the sound. Not an all-out tire smoking launch, but still a mildly entertaining look out the windshield.





Ethan's CO2 Rocket Car Project
Our neighbor kid, Ethan, built this CO2 Rocket Car and he brought it over to show us. I thought you might find it interesting. It even fishtails a bit as it launches. Hope you like it.





1976 Pontiac Ventura Street or Drag, Hot Rod Red, Quick Start and Idle
This is just a real quick video of the Pontiac starting up and pulling out of the garage. I apologize for the sound quality, the volume overpowered my cameras microphone. I hope to post some footage in the future of it tearing down the road. We tried this day, but the quality of the vid is terrible. We'll find a way to make a great one next time. When you hear this car in all it's glory it will give you chills. The car is equipped with a small block Chevy, Holley Double Pumper Carb, Muncie M21 4spd, and spooled rear with 4.33 Gears. The car is full of seldom seen parts, clever little speed tricks, and it's really well sorted out.





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.

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! Jeff.
