  1. What's new in this club
  2. Cool car...Hate to see that you're having transmission issues...I have a couple of questions....First off I'm not trying nor do I want to come across as being a smart ass..or condescending in anyway shape or form... So please don't take it that way...I also don't want to put up inaccurate Info if at all possible.... Are you 100% sure that the trans is a Dynaflow and not a Hydramatic..Or a Powerglide...?? I ask this because Dynaflows were exclusive to the Buick brand and were only used in Buicks...The exception to this is when there was a catastrophic Fire (Burned to the ground) at the Hydramatic plant in Livonia Michigan that shut down production for an extended period of time in the fall of 1953..As a result of that...GM had to scramble to come up with an automatic transmissions for use in cars that were supposed to be equipped with the Hydramatics...So they hastily reengineered the mounting points of the dynaflow trans case for use in other GM cars...They were for sure used in thousands of Cadillacs and Oldsmobiles in 1954 and possibly into early 1955..If you bought one of those cars they came with a certificate that would allow you to take the car back to the dealership and have the Dynaflow swapped out for a Hydramatic free of charge...Once production restarted and the supply chain was up and going again...Automatic trans (hydramatic) equipped Pontiacs of that same time period used the cast iron cased Chevrolet sourced Powerglide...Instead of the Dynaflow...The Powerglide was adapted to the Pontiac engine via a steel band adapter plate about an inch or so thick so it would bolt up to the Pontiac engine block...As with the Oldsmobiles and Cadillacs the Pontiacs also came with the Certificate to swap out the Powerglide for the Hydramatic free of charge..The seperate steel adapter band between the engine block and the bellhousing remained afterwards and continued to be used on the Chevrolets equipped with the cast iron case Powerglide transmission until it was updated to an aluminium case in the early 1960s... If your Pontiac 100% for sure does have a Dynaflow...Instead of a Hydramatic which may or may not Be possible..?? Since it is on a commercial type chassis and could be or not..??? More closely related to the very early 1955 producton Cadillac ambulances and hearses..?? Than a standard Pontiac station wagon... If you could be more specific as to exactly what the symptoms of your transmission problems are...It could very well be just a simple adjustment to cure the problem...That could be easily done yourself...There are lots of pages of adjustments in this manual... For different symptoms....Too many to try to post them all....Without norrowing the issue down some... TLBT..

  6. I’ve seen it or another version of it before on YouTube. I love the idea of a giant Radio Flyer.
  7. Same here. That wagon caught me by surprise, as you probably heard in the video
  8. Thanks for sharing Ringo. I loved the Radio Flyer wagon and the '55/56 home made El Camino.
  9. This cruise in took place today in Estero, FL and had to have had at least 200 cars going on the cruise. A 22 mile cruise from Daniels Rd to Corkscrew Rd along Treeline Rd. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to do the cruise but was able to meet up and see the sights of all sorts of cars from classic to modern muscle, hot rods, some imports and even a radial flyer .

  11. Hello, My name is Ryan and I'm in Brevard County FL. An elderly neighbor, recently made a widow, is now stuck with a '55 Pontiac that has very nice exterior but doesn't run and needs some interior work (I'm told). I am hoping that there are some interested buyers on this board that would be willing to give it a look. I am planning on taking pictures, but wanted to get the word out first. Any particular locations on vehicle where pictures would be more desired? Thanks!
  12. Well that's not good. I know what you mean about dying cars. You can see what happened to Lucy in the Charleston WV Rod Run and Doo Wop thread. I suspect I have more issues too. Still I hope you have a good turn out.
  13. nothing yet frosty except for a local GTO group xD and my car decided to kill itself so i have it on life support slowly rehabbing it
  14. Any takers that you know of yet? I'm hoping you have a lot of success. Good luck!

  20. What? No pictures from the Charlotte Auto Fair?
  21. What was your impression of GE and the little woman?
  22. Yes met up with GE...Hung out for awhile....Didn't really come across any treasures...or good deals..Did see alot of overpriced junk though...Also saw quite a few way over priced cars...I figure they're not really for sale because it is the same cars and owners....(Want #1 money for #4 condition cars) that have been there for the last few years trying to sell... Although I did run across a Can Am.... If I had somewhere dry to put it...I probably could have worked on the guy for awhile and got it for a fair price... It was kinda rough but all the key parts were there and did sort of crank up and run and was (with alot of work) very restorable...Seems that over the last couple years the attendance has been kind of off a little bit compared to what it has been in the past....Will hit it again in September.....
  23. So did you guys meet up and find wondrous treasures at Charlotte Motor Speedway?
