    Nearly 10 years ago, when I first hauled home this project, someone on this forum shared a road trip video with this song by Clutch. I always wanted to make a video using that song.... finally did.

  2. Holy Shit. Was hoping for nuts present, but damn ... that one has big King Kong hairy, slathery balls swinging !!

    421 ? Of course, nothing wrong with a 389, 400, 428, or 455 either. Love it.

    LOL. I wanted a $421$ and prob would have done it if '61 was correct for it. Nobody wants to sell a 421. 389 just seemed like a yawn, although they can be built. 455 recipes were pretty frothy so that's what I went with :)
     
  10. Good tunes and Poncho,more pics please.

    As far as I am concerned that is one of the best looking Pontiacs ever built, and the music was fantastic love the blues

  22. Heh heh heh....Pontiac 455s don't need no steenking red lines...they make tons-o-torque right off idle.
    And this helps answer the age old question.."Rocky, why did you choose a Pontiac engine for your 34 ford coupe?"

    My whole life I've wanted a pristine 60 Bonneville. But now here lately I've decided 61s are just as beautiful. Maybe more.

    Second only to my lifetime-long love of early Fords for me are '61 thru '63 Pontiacs. This being a bubble-top is just THAT MUCH better. I'm SO jealous! Beautiful car.

    Tire companies must have sent Christmas cards to Pontiac in the '60s.

    I've always been lusting after a 61 Ventura. Not many become available.
