  3. Motortrend just announced a 3-day Hot Rod Power Tour West event. It will be December 15-17, 2023. Locations will be: https://www.motortrend.com/events/2023-hot-rod-power-tour-west/ https://www.motortrend.com/hot-rod-power-tour-west/? ten=organic:ten:evt:hrptw:hrptw23:hr &utm_source=event&utm_medium=kiosk&utm_campaign=hrptw Day 1: Irwindale Raceway Day 2: Las Vegas Motor Speedway Day 3: In-N-Out Burger Pomona Dragstrip As much as I would love to go, it's not in the cards, at least this year. I plan to do the regular Power Tour next summer. But hey, perhaps some of our western friends will go and share their adventures with us.
  4. Hi Gno. I am not familiar with restoration shops in So. Cal. However, I know of two premier shops in Michigan. Wings Auto Art - Ionia Michigan https://wingsautoart.com/ Supercar Specialties - Portland Michigan https://supercarspecialties.com/ Nyle Wing's Firebirds and Trans Am have been in the likes of High Performance Pontiac and Pontiac Enthusiast magazine. Scott Tieman's Supercar Specialties is almost legendary is the restoration of some big name Pontiac cars. Scott is a legend in the Pontiac restoration community. A lot of his work has been in several magazines as well.
  5. Hello All, I'm new to this site and wish to ask for some opinions on Restoration companies that specialize in Restoring Pontiac Firebirds that are located in So. California. Please let me know some of your experiences and what makes your suggestions worth considering. Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank You, Gno
  6. COVID Omicron variant willing - the 2022 Grand National Roadster Show is scheduled for January 28-30, 2022. The 2021 show was cancelled due to COVID-19. Let's hope this year is not a repeat. Information can be found at: https://www.rodshows.com/gnrs/
  7. The 2021 Grand National Roadster Show (GNRS) and the 2021 Sacramento Autorama shows have been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. They have been rescheduled to Jan 28-30, 2022 and Apr 22-24, 2022 respectively. http://www.rodshows.com/ https://www.facebook.com/grandnationalroadstershow/ "The Grand National Roadster Show has been closely monitoring the current coronavirus outbreak and the government regulations made as a result. Due to the lack of clear guidelines from the state on how and when events can resume, Rod Shows has made the very tough decision to cancel the Grand National Roadster Show in 2021. Rest assured, we will return again in 2022 for a bigger, more exciting celebration with the cars and friends we all love. Stay tuned for more updates over the coming weeks."
  8. Please let us know what you do decide to do next and how your project goes. Oh yes, and pictures please. We all want to know the good and the bad. That's how we all learn together.
  9. Valley Auto Parts and Engines - 8212 Sunland Blvd, Sun Valley, CA 91352 (818) 767-6603 https://vapengines.com/ Good reviews and they claim to do Pontiacs Custom Performance Racing Engines - 115 E Gardena Blvd, Gardena, CA 90248 (310) 427-7486 Real good reviews My standing advise with all shops and engine builders is to go to their shop, talk to the owners/builders. If they are reputable, they will show you around and their equipment. Take note if the shop is clean and well organized. They should be able to give you prices on all of their services. Depending on what you need done, you can spend several thousands of dollars on a complete engine rebuild. You want to be comfortable you are spending your money on the right shop. So do your homework.
  10. I'm in Montebello, near downtown LA

  18. Lol thanks man. Sent from my mind using telekinesis.
  19. Probably not on Camp Pendleton. What I can do though, is make a post every time Shift S3ctor holds a runway race. They have them all the time.
  20. ill quote it to the other forums. so still no event for this year?
  21. To make things easier for some, I am posting the latest update that I sent out in an email, on the forums. If you did not receive an email containing this update, please email me saying that you did not receive this update and that way I will know who I may have accidentally not added to the list. Thank you! Good Afternoon all, As most of you know I was supposed to have a meeting on Friday the 18th, with the Semper Ride/Safety Officer from Headquarters Marine Corps. That didn't happen. Instead, I talked to the head Traffic and Safety Officer from Headquarters Marine Corps. Our meeting was short and sweet and there is some good news and some bad news coming from this meeting. I will start with the bad news, since it's always best to end on a good note. Right now, from the away everything is sounding, this event might be geared to only Marines aboard Camp Pendleton. I'm not 100% on this right now, however, that is what it is sounding like from the small meeting I had with him. I did mention that I have a ton of interest from the civilian side and surrounding areas of Camp Pendleton and from as far as Las Vegas. He had said that right now, they are looking at making it a safety event for Marines however, I do have his email and we will be talking back and forth in the upcoming future about this whole thing because he wants more ideas. The good news is, they have already begun the brainstorming for this event and me bringing up the idea to have it done helped them further their thought process on the set up of the event. They are also thinking about adding an AutoX event and Car Show to it as well, with a coach, to learn about the limits of your car and to see what it can handle. The new goal is to make this not only an event for just Camp Pendleton but, an event for all Marine Corps bases. I believe that something good will come out of this and I am hoping that I can get more interest from them to make this happen. I want to be able to bring the public into this event, I want this to be something that everyone can have and be a part of. If MCAS Miramar can let on hundreds of thousands of people for an Air Show, why can't we bring a bunch of cars on to race? I will have more updates as I email the Traffic and Safety Officer about the events and the interest that I am getting for it. As of now, we are at 75 people interested. That is much more than I expected right now and I'm sure once there is a for sure set date and everything for this event, the interest will skyrocket. I appreciate your guys/gals' time and patience about this, I will continue working on this event for everyone and I hope that you continue your support for this event as well. I would not be able to continue if I didn't have the support from you. Thank you. If anyone has any questions or comments, please email me and I will get back to you within 2-3 days of it being sent. Thanks again!
