2001 Pontiac Grand Prix SE 0-60 Test
The Pontiac Grand Prix:
The Pontiac Grand Prix is was first introduced in 1962 as a full-sized automobile. John De Lorean put a great deal of development into the original Grand Prix, which was seen in the full sport options. The Grand Prix went through six generations until its update as the seventh generation on the GM W platform in 2004. The seventh generation was split into four options groups with the first groups sporting the series III 3800 200 hp V6 engine and the last two groups (the competition groups) hosting a series III 3800 with a Supercharger installed to bring the hp up to 260 hp. The seventh generation suffered declining sales and the car was eventually phased out into the G8 before Pontiac's demise.
Limit Pushing - 1979 Z28 Camaro 0-60 Test
This was another rough video to get and something is wrong with the
speedometer and we got chased by the cop afterward....which I didn't catch
on tape......I'm sorry. However, this is one hell of a car and it really
only has a little over 26,000 miles on the original engine. The Paint job
and a new radio is the only restoration.
The 1979 Z28 Camaro:
The second generation Chevrolet Camaro was introduced in February
of 1970 and lasted until 1981. The second generation was styled after
several European car including Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Ferrari. The
second Camaro was
engineered much like the first with a unibody structure utilizing a front
subframe, A-arm and coil spring front suspension, and rear leaf springs.
Although it kept similar designs from the first generation, the second Camaro profited from a
much higher budget and was designed with higher quality parts and a better
driver experience. By the mid 1970s the Camaro grew less powerful, like
many other cars of the time, due to the tightening emissions regulations
and a fuel crisis.
The 1979 Z28s came with a front spoiler and fender flares to match the
Pontiac Trans Am, and "Z28" decals that ran from the beginning of the front
flares to the bottoms of the doors. The Z-28 model was powered by a 5.7
liter V8 engine with a 4V carb producing 175 hp and 270 ft/lbs of torque.
Sales for 1979 were the highest ever for any generation Camaro ever with a total of

The Ford Mustang:
The Ford Mustang was
initially based on the second generation Ford Falcon, a compact car. The Mustang came to be the first
of the "pony car" sports class. The creation of the Mustang led to a race for positions
on the pony car class. GM's response came in the form of the Chevrolet Camaro, AMC's was the
Javelin, and Chrysler's reinvention of Plymouth Barracuda. The Mustang was also the inspiration for
the Toyota Celica coupé. The 1965 Mustang was introduced to the public
in 1964 at the New York World's Fair. It is Ford's third oldest nameplate
currently in production next to the F-Series pickup truck line.
The Mustang prototype was a
two-seat, mid-mounted engine roadster, and was equipped with a V4 engine.
The two-seat design was abandon due to the low sales in with the 2-seat
1955 Thunderbird. A Fastback 2+2 model replaced the trunk space for
increased interior space. The original Mustang made its first movie
appearance in the James Bond film Goldfinger in September 1964. At a price
of $2,368 Original sales forecasts projected less than 100,000 units for
the first year. This mark was easily surpassed and 418,000 would eventually
be sold during the model year. In its first eighteen months, more than one
million Mustangs were
The second generation Mustang came in the 1970s during the
creation of stringent pollution laws and the 1973 OPEC oil embargo. These
changes greatly affected the pony car generation and definitely the new Mustang. The Mustang was adopted to the new
condition with a redesign based on the Ford Pinto subcompact. The new model
was badged the "Mustang II"
and introduced right before the first Energy Crisis in 1973. This version
was smaller than the original and heavier due to the addition of new U.S.
emission and safety equipment necessary to meet regulations. The car was
available in coupe and hatchback versions. Engine changes included the
intro of the 1975 5.0 L, the 1976 Cobra II, and the 1978 King Cobra.
The third generation Mustang was based on the larger Fox
platform developed for the 1978 Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr. The
available trim levels now included L, GL, GLX, LX, GT, turbo GT, SVO, Cobra, and Cobra R. The new Mustang variant was designed to be
fuel conscious and based on the Mazda MX-6. After a backlash from Mustang enthusiasts on the proposed
idea, the 1987 Mustang
would receive a major facelift and the MX-6 variant became the Ford Probe.
The fourth generation of the Mustang came about in 1994. It was
based on an updated version of the rear-wheel drive Fox platform with a 3.8
OHV V6 rated at 145 bhp and a 4.6 L SOHC V8 rated at 215 bhp but was later
increased to 225 bhp. In 1999, the Mustang was redesigned with Ford's
New Edge styling theme. The Mustang's engines were carried over
for the 1999 model, but benefitted from a new split-port induction system
and a new head design. These changes resulted in 190 bhp V6 engine and a
260 bhp V8.
The fifth generation Mustang was based on an all-new D2C
platform for the 2005 model year which echoed the fastback Mustangs of the late 1960s. The base
model is powered by a 210 hp 4.0 L SOHC V6 while the GT was powered by a
4.6 L SOHC 3-valve V8 with variable camshaft timing (VCT) producing 300 hp.
In 2010, Ford unveiled a redesigned Mustang prior to the Los Angeles
International Auto Show. The 2010 Mustang remains on the D2C platform
and mostly retains the previous-year's drivetrain options. The Mustang received a thoroughly revised
exterior, with only the roof panel being retained, that is sculpted for a
leaner, more muscular appearance and better aerodynamic performance with
the coefficient of drag being reduced by 4% on V6 models and 7% on GT
For the 2011 Mustang, Ford
revised the current Mustang
engines. The new V6 is a smaller 3.7L 305 hp aluminum block engine weighing
40 lb lighter than the previous version. The 4.6L 24V V8 was replaced by a
new 5.0L 32V V8 which produces 412 hp. The 2011 Shelby GT500's 5.4L block
is now made out of aluminum and makes 550 hp while weighing 102 lb lighter
than the previous engine.
Limit Pushing - Chrysler 300C Hemi 0-60 Test
5.9 is the rated 0-60 on the 2005 300C, so we were pleased when we got six
flat on the almost four year old car.
The 300C comes with a 5.7 L Hemi V8. At full power, the 300C creates 340 hp
and 390 lbs of torque. This engine runs on four cylinders when less power
is needed to reduce fuel consumption. Even with this energy saving mode,
the 300C runs at 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway. All 300Cs use a 5-speed
automatic transmission and standard 18 inch chrome-clad alloy wheels.
The Heritage Edition 300C comes with the 5.7 L Hemi engine and many of the
SRT-8's exterior modification, added chrome, special tires on 18 inch
wheels, and SmartBeam headlights.
Special SRT Packages:
In 2007 the SRT Design group created a package for non-SRT 300C's that
includes performance suspension, SRT 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, a
high speed engine controller with revised tuning for 5.7 L HEMI that brings
the power to 350 HP, high flow air cleaner system, and performance Exhaust.
The SRT-8 version of the 300 includes a 6.1 L Hemi V8 which produces 425
hp. This engine produces 0-60 mph times of 5.1 seconds. The SRT-8 includes
leather SRT-8 performance seats, 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, Brembo
brakes, and rear lip spoiler.
Limit Pushing - SRT8 Jeep Grand Cherokee 0-60 Test
The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8:
The Jeep Grand Cherokee was introduced in 1983 by AMC as a successor to the
Jeep Cherokee XJ. It was badged by Chrysler's Jeep brand in 1989. In 1993,
after a release delay, the Jeep Grand Cherokee was made available to the
public. Over the years the Grand Cherokee has seen 4 generations: the ZJ,
the WJ, WK, and the WK2. An SRT version of the Grand Cherokee was
introduced in 2005. The original SRT Jeep was powered by a 420 hp SRT8 6.1
L Hemi engine and included Brembo brakes, dual performance Exhaust, a sportier suspension set-up which
allows the Jeep to hold 0.92 g on a skid-pad, a Mercedes-Benz 5-speed
transmission, and a specially designed AWD system. The SRT8 Jeep is known
as the fastest accelerating vehicle in the SRT8 lineup with 0-60 times
recorded as low as 4.6 seconds. The SRT8 Jeep can achieve a top speed of
170 mph since its speed is ungoverned.

1964 Pontiac Grand Prix " Sold " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
1964 Pontiac Grand Prix. # 894S21574. This is one of those cars I had
to buy and when you see it you will agree. I bought this Grand Prix in
Oregon and it is a one family owned car. I have the original sales invoice
from Vic Bowman Pontiac in Oregon City. It was repainted once and I have a
big stack of receipts. They striped it down and did great job block sanding
so when you look at the photos notice the reflections. I did find a little
bubbling on the lower rear fenders. That and the rear package tray has a
bad spot in the right rear and right rear out side of the bumper has a spot
are about the only flaws you'll find. They are all photoed for you to see.
He did not have the receipts for the engine rebuild but on the rocker cover
is the sticker for the company that rebuilt the engine. Transmission was
rebuilt. This Pontiac has the 8 lug wheels and they are in excellent shape.
It's now serviced and safety checked. I have to tell you it did not need
much. Going over the receipts you can see why it's so nice. They always
changed the oil and kept it right up to date. I have not had a Grand Prix
in a long time. They have to have the best looking interior of most any
car. It's the dash that jumps out at you. Lots of chrome. The out side
lines are great too. They do not build them like this any more. You don't
see a lot of them and none in the condition this one is in. The engine
code 25K tells me it's a 389 cu.in. 303 HP. Engine with automatic
transmission. The S in the VIN tag tells me it was built in South Gate,
California. The 01D tells me it was built January in the 4th week. Trim
code 270 tells me the interior color is Saddle. Paint code S tells me
Saddle Bronze. Notice the 8 lug wheels, they really help set this car off.
I have to say it again, this is one beautiful car. I believe the Grand Prix
has one of the most beautiful dashes ever. Lots of chrome and dials, it
just looks good. Cond. # 2.

Wow this is one Hot 65 Grand Prix.
This is one of the cleanest GP's I have seen in a long time.

How to replace a crankshaft sensor on a grand prix gtp
This video is dedicated for the GTP owners that need to do the same

helps anyone out there that needs to tackle such a job and the video also
shows that it can all be done with simple tools which in turn will save you
time and money.
How to install a fuel pump on grand prix gtp
In this video I am replacing a fuel pump on a Pontiac Grand Pirx but is
very common procedure when it comes to other gm cars around the same year
and gm decided to add a service port in the trunk area to remove the fuel
pump instead of removing the whole tank like in the late 80's to late 90's
Hope this video helps the DIY people out there who plan on doing this to
their own cars without having to pay someone an arm and a leg or get
ripped off to get a fuel pump replaced.
Cost of the fuel pump online was only $60, Labor was my own time.
Cost of pump at famous auto stores $251.99, Labor $90 an hour , so you
tell me who is ripping who off ? Seems like this world is a whole rip off
but with out it there would be no economy right ? That is why I save money
and even save money for my own customers and they always come back because
I treat them fairly and don't see them as dollar signs but also time is
money so you cant work for free either but be fair and you will always have
