Now this 1962 Pontiac Catilina really grabbed me because I remember seeing this very car at the NHRA National Drags in 1962 - and also several times at the US131 Dragway in Martin, Michigan. It was the NHRA record holder for the Super Stock class.
This car was one of a very limited production made specifically for the drag strip. The option package was called "Super Duty".
Among its special features was a light-weight fiberglass front end. The standard 389 cu. in. high performance engine was rated at 348hp. This one was rated at 405hp.
To my 20 year old mind at the time, this was about a good as it gets!

Passenger side - although I doubt the car ever had a passenger. To save weight, the seats (other than the driver's) had no springs and the windows didn't have crank mechanisms.

Speaking of fiberglass!
I owned several over the years and still love 'em.
Here is a 1965 Honduras Maroon coupe with 396 cu. in. big block. Check the gold stripe tires and knock-off wheels

Denny, thanks for sharing these photos. The Vette looks like new. Ever go to Corvete's at Carlisle? Just went last weekend. Doesn't get much better than fairground full of fiberglass.
The Catalina is truely a historic car. Wish I could have been around to see it run back in the day. By the why the frontend wasn't fiberglass but aluminum. It's very thin and dents if not handled carefully. The frame also has dozens of holes drilled to lighten it up. the called it a "Swiss cheese frame".

Thanks Raymond. You are correct.. The Pontiac front end WAS aluminum; not fiberglas. My mistake - I should re-read my comments before posting them.
I have never been to Carlisle, PA which I understand is a big vette show. I have been to the NCRS Bloomington show several times. Actually, I sold my 1963 Corvette coupe there. It sold in less than 15 minutes.

Beautiful car Mark!
Not sure why I was able to use the word "cockpit" a few posts before yours and you cannot use the word
"s u c k e d".
Anyway, the Hemi rocks!!!

Mark, sweet ride. I've been thinking of getting the Challenger or the Camaro next year. How do you like the car so far? Anything you dislike? If I do get one it will have to have the Hemi and a manual trans.

Hey Raymond,

I bought the automatic (slapstick shifter) as I wanted a driver and have 3 manual transmission high performance cars and really wanted to just relax and let it rip without going thru all the gears every time. Plus, I can let my son drive this one and not worry about him having to shift. The Marines (he comes home from Iraq this Sunday 11/09/08) use Allison automatics in the heavy stuff and the guys don't get the jeep experience we did in our time.

It (the SRT edition) comes with a one day Richard Petty driving school experience...wwwdrivesrt.com and I gave that to him for a coming home present.

So far, the car feels bigger than I expected, has plenty of interior room and a murderous sound system with Boston Acoustics speakers. There is nothing I don't like about it. It is a really great riding car and the Brembo brakes and 20" Alcoa aluminum wheels set it off nicely in the styling dept. You can get one for sticker price with no mark up if you look around. I like this one very much so far..no squeaks, rattles or gremlins so far.

Thanks Mark. One of the carpenters at work bought one also and he raves about it but he is a Mopar nut, so I think his judgement might be a little clouded Big Grin. I think I'll check the dealers by me, I'm sure there will be a couple to check out. I don't think I'll ever like driving an automatic. Both my T/A and Vette are manuals with my everyday car (97 Lumina) an automatic which I hate. My company even bought 3 dump trucks and a roll-off with the Allison automatics, hate those also, but a couple of guys love them. To each his own.
More importantly, I'm glad to hear your son is comming home.
Semper-Fi,
Ray

Haven't posted on this forum for some time...haven't seen one of these posted up either. 2008 BMW 135i, 300hp/300lbs tq, 0-60 in 4.7, 60-0 in 102 ft, the thing is an absolute rocket, handles like a BMW. Wink Got him in March, have put 5,500 miles on him, a few sideways, though he's now packed away for winter.

Hey, look at that, I remembered how to post. Smile

Holy Smokes! I had no idea these things were bringing that kind of money. I don't remember this particular car, but do remember a '63 Tempest station wagon HD owned by a guy named Arnie Beswick. He called the car Mrs. B's Grocery Getter. Seeing it leave the starting line was a sight to behold!

This was my 360 F1 a completely silly purchase of a shockingly bad and unreliable car. But hey it looked nice in the main dealer! I got so fed up with the poor mechanicals, smoke and crappy f1 gearbox I ended up sticking it on ebay lost a fortune on it!

I dont care what you say yellow is a great colour though for one of these.

And after getting another, Porsche 996 turbo (I will take some pics) I went out and got this piece of crap as well. For some reason I thought the F430 was going to be better than the 360 but I was wrong. Great looks still but shocking mechanicals and all the same problems with bad clutches, crappy lights, irritable starting and crappy electrics. Now you would have thought i would have learnt my lesson first time. Buying these things reminds me of those men you see with fantastic looking women on their arms when you go out. Everyone has a look and that is kind of nice but deep down she is a ***** and when you try and get rid of her you pay through the nose for the mistake!.

And another, my advice is that dont buy italian go German. I love Porsches I have had six now and am just looking for a 997 Turbo Convertable. Absolutely trouble free motoring, the engineering is spot on and they are very very fast if you buy the Turbo. I have a 996 Turbo X50 as a runaround and have done 52,000 miles in her without any trouble at all and its far quicker than the ferraris. I will take some pics of the 996 and post them when i get a chance.

Mongo it's no wonder your having problems ,they put the steering wheel on the wrong side. Big Grin
My son went to England to do a job, the first car he got was a BMW rt. side drive and a stick to boot.He said between the opposite road, stick on the left and steering wheel it was a challange to drive and had to get an automatic.

P.S. your cars are all fine lookers

Beautiful cars Mongo!
As luck would have it, I ran across these pictures today. The pics went missing when we moved to a new home 11 years ago and I just found them.
This isn't exotic European hardware, but something more sedate and domestic. This is my '63 Corvette, 300 hp, 4 speed, 60,000 mile toy. This car was totally 100% authentic, right down to the proper tar top battery, Firestone 500 6.70x15 NOS tires w/proper width white wall, clear plastic GM floor mats, matching serial numbers, etc. It was not only a fun car, but it put my daughter through her first three years of college when I sold it. Enjoy.
Unable to post pictures right now. I'll try later. Here is the error message.

I'm kinda surprised that you americans are not more patriotic regarding your own car production.

There's nothing like your 50, 60 and early 70 cars. Big, powerfull and gas-drinking....

Owned a few of them myself and wouldn't trade them for a bunch of Ferrari's, Porche's or Beamer's.

It's quite depressing watching american mowies these days. Either they drive a Volvo or a Saab....Whatta F...?

What ever happened to good old american muscle???
