1961 Pontiac Ventura

As a young,17 year old, car crazy kid from the west coast, I had the chance to drag race a brand new ‘61 Ventura, Honduras Maroon, 4 speed with a quick change rear end. That experience was one of highlights of my youth.

Fast forward 30 years and by chance I discovered the car again in a small town outside of Chicago. By this time it was a worn out example of itself, but my memories of the good times made me do it. I bought the car without even driving it around the block. I was just happy to get it. If it turned out to be a planter box for flowers, at least I could look revisit my memories.

Today, 40+ years later “the car of my dreams” is totally restored and making those wonderful noises again (in my driveway).
