of the Month

  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Pontiac Super Stocks & Factory Experimentals of the 1960s

Recommended Posts

Here is an interesting historical link and picture gallery of the early days of drag racing....George Klass Remembers...Super Stock and Factory Experimental.



The article outlines super stock and factory experimental racing for Chevy, Pontiac,Chrysler and Ford, in that order. Pontiac starts about 1/4 of the way down. It does a good job outlining the history of Pontiac's Super Duty, and the history of Super Stock racing in general. What I like most is the very old photographs of many of Pontiac's old Super Duty race cars, back in the day, being driven the way Pontiac meant them to be - racing and winning!



I've written about the recently found and restored Stan Ancoler driven '63 SD Lemans. You can see this car as it was back in the day. Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick's SD Tempest was lost in a car fire and burnt to the ground. You will see some of the missing SD Tempest wagons racing as well.





So enjoy.....

Thanks for sharing! Damn, whenever I look at photos from the 50's and 60's I always wonder what is was like to live in a time like that. Awesome cars, Cold War, social changes. The mid 20th century is so fascinating.

Life was free and living on the edge, literally. NHRA safety was still in its infancy. Many of these guys raced in T-shirts, helmets, no roll bars, no fire extinguishers, etc. It was definitely a different time.
