Rare 1967 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 Drag Race Rat Rod at Rock & Race Dragway 42 Ohio

My then bone stock 4,120 pd 1967 Pontiac Catalina 2+2 gets beat by a open bodied big block powered rat rod in time trial race at the 2009 Rock and Race. Drag-way 42 West Salem Ohio. My best time of the weekend was a 14.24 @ 101mph. with air cleaner removed. This run was 14.94 @96 MPH with a bog off the line. Car now has 455 dual quad engine. Will post more race video with new engine when track opens in the spring 2012 if I still have the car.

Wide-Track: 1959 Bonneville - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Chuck Cushner Slathered in Lamborghini orange paint and exuding a presence that is anything but subtle, this 1959 Bonneville is a car that represents a peak time in American automotive design. It was drafted before government mandates and regulations stifled imagination and creativity, and takes us back to an era when we still looked to the stars for inspiration. This is a car that will stop you dead in your tracks and make you truly long for the days when chrome was King, gas was a mere .25¢ per gallon, and where Elvis Presley was the greatest thing the public had ever heard.





Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing. Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is outside-the-box styling at its best. Owner: • Mike Artman

Saturday Racing Action Dragway 42 Rock & Race 7-24-2010
Racing at the Dragway 42 Rock & Race event Saturday 24 July 2010. Tip of the hat to Dragway 42 for a fun event in spite of the weather, great sub-cultural vibe. Swap meet was much better this year. This is a great venue for this kind of event, much better then a fairgrounds setting. Camping, open fires, noise all no problem. Hope we have the heads-up fun runs return next year, bracket racing isn't 'flag start' nostalgic stuff - See you next year - CW





Turbo Rat Rod Truck at I-40 Dragway
Footage from first test-n-tune of 2010. This truck is built on a budget with a mostly stock small block Chevy. The turbo is a Borg Warner S400. Runs a 6.18 on this pass, but the truck has run a best of 5.97 in the eighth mile. This could be the worlds fastest rat rod!

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.

PONTIAC - "The Super Duty Story" Part 1 of 3
Pontiac had an SD engine program in the late 50s early 60s, and later/briefly again in 1973/74 with the SD455. This video is regarding the FIRST Super Duty program.---In only a few years time during the late 50s early 60s, Pontiac MORE THAN DOUBLED their V8's horsepower output (described in this video), while using/keeping the same V8 engine block they used thru 1955-81. Even though the same block was kept, from 1955-62 the cubic inch displacement grew much larger than the initial 287 cuber it started as in 1955. It grew to a 317 347 370 389 and finally a 421 cuber in 1962. It eventually maxed out at 455 cubes in 1970. By 1970 ALL the other GM divisions were producing engines at 454 or 455 cubes (500 for Cadillac). PONTIAC WAS THE ONLY DIVISION still using the same block they used in the 1950s on engines that had a much smaller displacement -- 287 cubes. The 1955 287 displacement would remain the smallest displacement ever used in the Pontiac V8 block all the way until 1980/81 when a 265V8 was produced. Since less durability was required for the smaller displacement, the block was decked/butchered/lightened on the 265/301v8s of 1980/81. Prior to 1980 the block had never been decked/butchered/lightened. The 1980/81 265/301v8 blocks were about 200 pounds lighter than the 1955-79 blocks, and only 25 pounds heavier than a Buick 231V6.
