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

1956 Pontiac Star Chief Low Mileage Survivor 317 V8 - Gateway Classic Cars
I thought you'd like a look at this very original 1956 Pontiac Star Chief. This amazing survivor has only 74,xxx original miles on the odometer. It's powered by the factory 317 V8, backed by an automatic trans. It has all original interior and even the factory Air Conditioning. You won't find too many out there like this anymore. It has a cool patina to it, that can only be built up over decades of use. If it were me, I would leave this car as it is and just have fun cruising it. I hope you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

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 "Ramona" Tribute to Scrapped Ventura Car
A few still photos preface this short tribute video to what I found out was "Ramona'" to it's previous owner.. A 1960 Pontiac Ventura 4 dr flat top, poor Ramona was swamped in a Hurricane in Key West Florida and her sheet metal corroded. The roof was so bad it was perforated. Before that though, she had been fixed up pretty nicely. In the glove compartment were receipts for new dual Exhaust, rebuilt transmission and rebuilt heads on the engine, rebuilt front end and new brake system.. I bought the car on Ebay for $100. Of course, it cost about $700 more to drag it back to Charlotte NC.. I originally was going to strip it were it was by my pal Todd suggested we bring it to NC.. Good thing he did. The parts from this car turned out to be a gold mine. The Exhaust system currently serves in the '60 Catalina and I have plans for the engine soon. It's always great to have spare parts before you need them and this had plenty.. Power steering pump, power brake Booster, front end parts.. the ball joints and bushings had less than 2000 miles on them.. Brake drums and bearings all had low miles on them, too.. Even the frame was good but nobody wanted it so I saved the 3:08 rear, cut it up with a sawzall and hauled it to the scrap yard.. Got $300 back for the carcass! Now the rest of these parts are up for grabs as I have another parts car on the way.

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.
