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.
Testing Governor Pressure
How to test Governor Pressure on an Automatic Transmission. I'm using a Chrysler 42RE in a 1997 Dodge Dakota. What I do can be applied to any automatic transmission with an Electronic Governor.

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

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 quite a bit 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 Trans and Exhaust system currently serve 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 has 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!
This is my first attempt to string photos and video together and it's not great but I hope you don't feel like you wasted 10 minutes...
