1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport
Just a quick video of me pulling my car out of the parking lot.. It's a 1970 Pontiac Lemans Sport with the original 350 engine, TH 350 transmission, and the original 10 bolt peg leg rear end. It has 81,000 original miles. It went through a frame off restoration recently in which evrything was powder coated. It also sports a new paint job and a GTO hood. It also has some not original stuff which includes a holley 600 cfm vacuum secondary carburetor, edelbrock aluminum intake, and Pypes 2.5" stainless steel x-pipes with low restriction mufflers. Unfortunately I'm missing the rear Pontiac emblem on the trunk lid does anyone know where I can find one, Ive tried year one and performance years but its not remade. The noise at 2:28 is because I hit the steering lock nothing serious. I didnt push on it too hard because the powertrain is 40 years old and in really good shape and I'd like it to last. This is not a trailer queen or a museum piece thats never driven. I drive it as much as possible because its meant to be enjoyed. If you like old muscle cars and would like to get into the hobby the Lemans is still relatively inexpensive and can be dressed up to look like a GTO. This car is my pride and joy and I hope to never sell it so please enjoy.
1968 Pontiac Lemans project
I traded my red 1961 F100 for this car in December. I liked the truck but it was so difficult to drive. No power steering, brakes, or A/C. So here I have a very cool cruiser. Leaving it mostly stock, no loud mufflers or go fast bolt ons except for the HEI ignition and Edelbrock intake and carburator.
Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be dead in minutes!
Pontiac Lemans. For the record, the rims suck. They ruin the whole damn thing!
Pontiac Lemans Burnout
This is the '72 Pontiac Lemans up in smoke in the middle of town. yes, we stopped traffic to do this. I can't wait to see this car at the drag races and with slicks it should pull wheelies!
1970 Pontiac LeMans Sport STK 1280.mp4
1970 Pontiac LeMans Sport was considered by Pontiac to be the car right below the GTO in its marketing line up. However, many have seen that equal too with the power options that were available. The LeMans along with its convertible body style make it much better than any hardtop to run down the production line. Under the hood is a numbers matching 350ci V8 with a 2 barrel carburetor with a TH350 automatic transmission putting the power to the rear wheels. The LeMans has had new paint, convertible top, windshield, rear floor pans, headlights, door handles, door seals, trunk seal, trunk paint, A pillar seals, carpet, alternator, radiator, dampers, tires, wheel cylinders, brake lines, front brake shoes, fuel lines, transmission lines, powder coated aprons, powder coated steel wheels and powder coated radiator support. This LeMans was optioned with seatbelts, power brakes, power top, hub caps and AM/FM/8 Track radio. The original interior has some wear but is in great shape for its age. This is truly a LeMans you need to come look at to believe how stunning it is.
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown. I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why, I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
