1976 Pontiac Grand Safari 455 Cold Start in -12 degree weather
Firing up a 1976 Pontiac with over 218,000 original miles on a -12 degree
day so my driveway could be plowed. The car has plenty of issues, but it
NEVER fails to start in any weather despite sitting outside year-round.
Wagon is NOT for sale! CORRECTION - David G has been kind enough to point
out that at 2:41, I indicate that the block heater had been plugged in.
This was actually not the case. I do normally keep it plugged in during
frigid weather, but on this occasion, I unplugged it the night before
because my neighbor was going to plow my drive when he finished his
commercial accounts overnight. Due to the unusually severe weather, he
didn't get home until midday which is why I was out shoveling by hand in
-12. I didn't offer this explanation in my commentary as I was trying to
keep the video length under 20 minutes. Thank you for watching, and for
those who are emotionally distressed by this shocking revelation, I'm sorry
I'm such a horrible deceitful bastard.

I have seen a few 58 TRI POWER BONNEVILLE'S, BUT NEVER a 58 FUEL INJECTED
CAR!!! There were just (630), 1957 Pontiac FUEL INJECTED cars built, and
all were Bonneville convertibles. When 1958 came along there were only
(400) FUEL INJECTED BONNEVILLE CARS BUILT (TOTAL) BETWEEN CONVERTIBLES AND
HARDTOPS!!! So this 58 FI Bonneville is NO DOUBT ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL
GENERAL MOTORS CARS EVER TO BE PRODUCED!!! AND SHE IS A BEAUTY AND WITH NO
RUST EVER, AND I MEAN NO RUST EVER!!!! She has had one repaint (THE PAINT
IS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS)!! !! (SHE IS AS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW) and still
sports her ORIGINAL INTERIOR, NOT A REDONE INTERIOR, ITS ORIGINAL
INTERIOR!! The chrome and stainless on this magnificent car is really
SPECTACULAR!! She has Power Steering and Power Brakes for ease of driving
and she has all 4 of her perfect original hubcaps!! The 370 Cu In Pontiac
FI motor is backed up to its original 4 spd. HYDRA MATIC transmission! She
is missing (NOTHING AT ALL) from all of the correct original FUEL INJECTION
PARTS to her correct Exhaust tips!!!
She lacks nothing accept a new home in some ones very special collection,
or at home in your garage!! Or perhaps for a SPECIAL NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN
IN A CAR THAT (ONLY YOU) WILL HAVE AT ANY CAR SHOW YOU CHOOSE TO PULL
INTO!!! AND THIS I PUT IN STONE!!! You WILL NEVER FIND THE CHANCE TO OWN
SUCH A FIND AGAIN!!! If you are a serious Pontiac collector, or for that

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 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.
