My first car was a 1960 Ventura. That was in 1967. A giant black and chrome beheamouth. Could not wait to get rid of it and get a 67 Chevelle SS. But today given the chance I would snap up a beautiful 60 Pontiac in a second,I was too young then to see the real beauty that I had in my hands. Sadly when I was done with my Ventura and several other now clasic cars, including a 57 Chevy Belair, it went to the scrap heap. May the Hot Rod gods take pitty on a old man.

I was 12 years old in 1967, my dad got a 1960 Pontiac Catalina from his brother. It was blue with a white top , blue interior , it was a beautiful car. he sold it to start a business, never seen it again and never ran across another one. But I still love them. You surely have an awesome car, very fast , very nice

Don't think (?) this car was ever Maroon...I worked on it at Thayer's Sinclair in Annandale,VA in the mid sixties...it was black and raced by Gene who lived in Alexandria at the time.. Have no idea of his whereabouts prior. There was another 60 owned by Les Harris and was Maroon and ran CS/A....named Lil' Cloud..

I love the Green & Blue interiors !!! Have only seen a White 60 Bonni at Burdette Bros. Show that had the Blue interior..The Geen interior with the Sofrray tinted glass was very cool looking IMO.. Going to try and pull 100 pounds off car over winter...and 20 off driver :-)
