65 Chevy Impala SS open headers irritates my neighbor
Here's my original high school car, numbers matching (327 c.u.i.) bought in 1972. Decided to open the headers and cruise around my subdivision a little, but end up ticking off my neighbor. I didn't even drive by his house - he lives up the block the opposite direction. When he heads to the back of my car to take a pic of my license plate, I realize this could turn against me. Funny thing is, he doesn't actually recognize me until I get out of the car - then we "share the love".
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.
yep it runs 1936 pontiac stock 6 cylinder motor first start in over 50 years
My new project That i picked up 8/15/12 is a 1936 Pontiac silver streak with a original six cylinder motor. I just bought the car with a unknown condition motor and this was the first start up. I didn't even clean the carb. Just primed the carb with gas and sanded the points contacts. Yes it is full of oil and water. The motor doesn't even smoke. and yes i said it was 78 years old but I was thinking 76 years old in my head??
Burnouts open headers on the street
I am the announcer at Kansas City International Raceway.KCIR. This video was taken June 3rd. 2006 on a very busy 4 lane road that was just resurfaced and repainted, i think they did it just for me and a couple of hundred of my friends.It was called an open header cruise, where cars would cruise to Fuddruckers about 5 miles from the dragstrip. Then with the help of some friends we shut down the road for about 20 minutes until the police showed up.

1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Cold Start
My 1968 Pontiac Firebird had been parked up for a week in sub-zero temperatures.
So, I thought it would be a good idea to crank it over and warm it through a little. I'd recently had an MSD ignition system and new Edelbrock carb installed, so was also interested to find out how easy it was to start after sitting.
The Pontiac was started with no choke. I cranked it over initially just to make sure everything was free, and to get the oil moving a little, then popped the bonnet to check the hoses. After that, and with a few pumps of the pedal, off it went!
The car is a bit of a project, but it's road legal. I'll be doing some more videos on it soon, so stay tuned.
If you enjoyed the video, please take a second to give it a thumbs up, add it to a favourites list, or share it. It's always appreciated.
1966 GTO drag racing 2011 Pontiac Nationals in Norwalk, OH Mike Green from 1AAuto.com
When he is not filming How To Videos you might find Mike Green behind the wheel of his '66 GTO drag car. He does most of the work on the car himself with the help of friends and family. These passes were filmed at the 2011 Pontiac Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk Ohio. The air was hot and humid when this was filmed so times were off. As of August 2011 best pass is 10.531 @ 126.03 mph.
