Pontiac 455 duet

The LeMans (on the left) has a mild, non-rebuilt 455 with ported & polished 6X heads, c. 9:1 compression, Edelbrock Performer intake, Holley 800 Street Avenger, Comp XE274 cam, making maybe 300-350 horsepower. The Grand Am (right) has a .030 over 455 with Edelbrock heads (87 cc chambers), 10:1 compression, same Comp cam but with 1:65 roller rockers, slightly better Exhaust (H-pipe), Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and Edelbrock 750 carb. About 500 horsepower at the flywheel. The heads make all the difference. The Grand Am has the Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust system, which has the 50-series mufflers. LeMans has a Summit Exhaust system, which was cheap and went on nice & easy.

Camaro Z28 messing with 455 GTO on the street
Late-Model Camaro Z28 with bolt-ons messing with a classic 455 swapped GTO. The GTO jams it and then one of the passengers thought they were being tailed by an unmarked B4C (special service police) Camaro holding a radar gun (video camera, lol) notice the nervous and unsure look on his face as we roll beside, then his complete and total relief once he recognized a couple old pals in just a regular Camaro, lol. (This Camaro made 280hp at the wheels and ran 13.1 at Mason Dixon Dragstrip) This footage was shot way back, many years ago, with an old junky analog camera, so apologize for the poor video quality.

Pontiac 350 - 350 Horsepower For Less Than $500.00
A short video describing the modifications done to the 65,000 original mile Pontiac 350 engine in my 1975 Formula. Using heads, cam, pushrods, rocker arms and an intake that I had laying around, this Pontiac 350 developed 353 horsepower and 385 lbs/ft of Torque, for less than $500.00 invested.

There is a thrill in the hunt, and a joy in discovering a car that nobody else knows about. These are the cars that have been parked for whatever unknown reason ; a blown tranny, discarded in disgust, set aside for later. Many cars are sentenced to a particular spot with no release date in mind. They all have a story to tell, and one has to wonder who fell in love with the vehicle first and plunked down all their hard earned cash on the beast. Cracking open the door is like entering a ancient tomb, with the rusty hinges announcing your arrival. Every old car has it's own unique smell, some brands even possessing their own odors. Pop the hood next. Engine bays come in 3 types, complete, empty, and partially disassembled. A complete bay is the ultimate goal, for that means there is a small chance that the car might still run. An empty bay puts the car towards parts-car status, or full swap/update for sure. A half complete mill is the worst situation possible. One must play detective and figure out what went wrong and where all the missing parts currently reside. Pop the trunk, and it's time to go treasure hunting. The trunk can hold anything from missing parts and nos trim, to possums and many other shocking items forgotten over time. The adventures of moving a car that has not moved in decades is immediately present. Brakes stick, bearings freeze, tires are square and downright ignorant, and every immobile wreck instantly gains 1 ton over its still-mobile twin. Might be the 1800 pounds of old concrete in the trunk, the one the owner conveniently "lost" the keys for. Many times there is things in the way that were not present when the car was parked 45 years ago. Naturally, not all these cars go into the garage and come out show queens. Some get fixed, few get finished, and most get slated for parts service. The ones that do not meet one persons standards get pawned off on fresh hunters with less money and more ambition. Maybe the car will help out to get another twin out of the weeds also and back on the road. But one thing is for certain, once the derelict wreck is loaded, the standard question always asked is "Do you know of any more old cars around here?" (pulled from my old website from years gone by)

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).

PONTIAC - The Glory Years! Part 1 of 5
(1956-93). Some great basic Pontiac history, along with the CARS and PEOPLE (Bunkie Knudsen, John Delorean, Jim Wangers, Pete Estes, etc) who made Pontiac great in those years. In 1956 Bunkie Knudsen was hired as Pontiac's General Manager. He was told by GM "Turn Pontiac around in 5 years or the division is gone". Within about a year he quickly assembled a great team. Knudsen was fortunate enough to pick up engineer John Delorean from Packard when that company closed, Delorean later became the father of the GTO and MANY Pontiac Innovations. Knudsen was also fortunate enough to lure a brilliant "Olds Rocket V8" engineer away from Oldsmobile---Pete Estes who helped the Pontiac V8 breath as well as it could.
