1972 Pontiac Ventura 1/4 mile in car drag race

1972 Pontiac Ventura II Goes 14.00@97mph. It's bested 13.9 before but I didnt get that run on video. Stock RECON Rebuilt 350 Pontiac Block & Heads form 2001. Heads are casted 6X. Mods are: Pete Jackson Gears, Edelbrock Intake, 600 CFM Holley Double Pumper (Mechanical secondaries), Holley Electric Fuel Pump, Hooker Headers, Magnaflow True-X Stainless Steel Dual Exhaust, 4.10 Gears with Posi, TH2004R with shift kit, Crane Cam 216/216 .454/.454 110LSA, Drag Radials and a slight Dyno tune. Full Weight. I'm shifting manually on the Column to prevent short shifting. I shift from 1st to 2nd @ 5000rpm & finish the 1/4 mile run in 3rd @ 5500 rpm instead of popping in 4th gear. I tried shifting all gears at 5500 rpms, but it makes no difference for the ET or MPH. Putting in 4th slows it down by .15 I'm going to install 3.91's to see if it betters the ET. 4.10's may have been an overkill.

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. run

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 - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY 405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60 degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
