Default 1960 Pontiac Ventura

Hey everyone, I'm located in Utah and have I got a sweet story to tell. I stumbled upon what I would consider to be some gems from the past. I'll start with the 1960 Pontiac Ventura. This car has sat waiting for some attention. The creator of the sleeper muscle car was excited to see me want it. What he has done is taken a 1960 Bonneville and put all the luxury parts in this Ventura. I now have a stock 389 Tri-Power engine with the original dual snorkel air intake connected to a 3 speed manual transmission that ends off with a posi traction rear end. The best part is they are all from the same year of cars. The best part of all of it was the cost to me. And that was absolutely nothing but a little time and some B.*. sessions with my now friend. But just when you think it stops there I have also been given a 1967 Impala 2 door, '69 Impala 2 door, 1959 AMC Rambler. It just keeps getting better. The more I hang out with my new friend the more he keeps giving me cool new toys. Here are some pictures so everyone can enjoy.

Looks like some great projects. The cars look to be in great shape. SGP358 has a nice collection of classics. I'm sure you two will be exchanging some stories.
