1970 Pontiac Bonneville 455

Spotted this transitional Pontiac Bonneville in Mid-Wilshire.  I call this year the transitional year for the Bonneville since it was the year between the beautiful designs of the 1960’s and 1950’s and the years after.  I do not need to tell you that Bonneville’s from 1971 and onward were not the pinnacle of automotive design. This one is sporting a massive 455 (7.5L) GM motor under the hood that supposedly was rated at 370 HP. That is a lot of horsepower – although this behemoth needed it to move about. Whether those were gross (read – bench test) 1970 numbers is up for debate.
