In Our Garage with Marc Obrowski's 1963 Pontiac Bonneville
Mark Obrowski loves everything about his classic 1963 Pontiac Bonneville and said it was great for a relaxed cruise.
How long have you had your vehicle and where did you get it from?
We bought it about 10 years ago in Melbourne.
It's a 1963 Pontiac Bonneville, and I think there's only one or none of this kind in Australia.
Have you modified the car at all?
No changes at all.
This is an original car and I want to keep it this way.
It is perfect. It doesn't need to be improved.
I will not lower it. I will not change anything.
I just keep it in good repair, in good condition.
What are the specifics of the car?
Under the bonnet is a 6.4 litre V8 and that was the smallest engine you can buy with this car.
It has a 303 horsepower.
It is a high compression engine, which means unfortunately it needs the most expensive petrol.
What I like about the engine specifically, it's very strong, it's very big and it's perfect for driving, very relaxed and very slowly.
It's not a loud engine, it doesn't have a loud exhaust system.
It is a car for leisurely and relaxed cruising.
Why do you love the Pontiac Bonneville?
I have always loved American cars since I was a little child and I've had a few!
I bought some in America.
I had one here before and I went overseas and I sold the car and I thought, it's stupid to have big cars like that.
Then I found myself almost every night looking at the classifieds for big American cars.
I found this beauty here in Melbourne.
