    New here, I'd like to introduce myself

    Love your LeMans and some of the shots you have
  6. Hey everyone, I just signed up for FP not too long ago, and I thought I'd introduce myself and my car. My name is Joe, and I'm 23, living in Staten Island, NY. I just recently bought a 1971 Lemans with the original 350 and TH350. The car was restored by the previous owner a few years back, so the paint is new, but the color is original (I think), and the interior was changed from bench seats to buckets. The car has an Edelbrock 4 barrel, and electronic ignition, but is otherwise totally stock. The original rear end is open differential with 2.78 gears. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from all you Poncho experts 😎

    Why did you get your Pontiac?

    Lots of history you have there with Pontiac and a Trans Am! Most definitely, it's a rare sighting to see a a 70s Grand Am.

    Why did you get your Pontiac?

    Trans Ams became very popular 75-76 and I thought they were so great looking. Now people and television look down on them as a car that southern white trash drives. I knew better, the handling was already there and all that was needed was modifying the engine. I owned a 69 GTO first (never did get it to run), then a 75 Grand Prix (brother wrecked it), a 75 Trans Am next (holes in the hood so big you could change the oil without popping the hood open) A teenage girl on downers ran a stop sign and took that one out, then a 78 T/A next with nitrous, then a 76 50th Anniversary Edition T/A (kick myself in the butt for selling that one) then family came along and had to get vans and the like. When my wife left me and the kids I was ready to get back into a project car but I did not want the Trans Am/Camaro/Corvette everyone else had at the local car shows so I went looking and found a 73 Grand Am. I have been working on that for several years now. When I do get it fixed up and go to a show I will probably be the only one there. Did not know it then but when I bought it and drove it home ($3800 with current license and inspection) the motor had been went through and was a unit out of a 74 T/A 4 speed car. I don't know what type of cam is in the car but it is far from stock. The exhaust was a 2.5" dual system and the previous owner had put a 850 CFM Holley on it (way too much carb for the motor) I replaced that with a Edelbrock 1401 and then later a street demon carb. Now It is going through mods for a Fitech fuel injection system. The rear end was changed from a 3.08 peg leg to a 3.73 positraction unit from an 85 Monte SS. Turbo 400 Trans was swapped for a 2004R OD unit from a 85 Monte SS as well. The 4x-3H heads have been milled down (found that out when trying to fit the Performer RPM manifold). Rebuilt the front end and new springs and KYB shocks all around. I pulled off the headers as well as I have already been through exhaust gasket changing 101, 102, 103, Etc. and have a set of Ram Air Restorations RAIII exhaust manifolds installed now. the interior has my attention now as I have new seat covers and carpet (came with the car) a Just Dashes restored dash, and the instrument cluster with a tachometer instead of the clock. One thing you learn with a rare car is that you have to jump on parts when they become available, it might be years before you see that part again. The dash was purchased spur of the moment ebay as was the T/A steering wheel, front bumper, rear tail lights, and automatic shifting console. I had to drive from League City, Tx all the way to OMG Denton, Tx just to spend $300 on a bumper only to throw the bumper away because all I needed was the rubber impact strip for the rear bumper. well enough for now, talk to everyone later.

    Howdy gang. Grizzly Dan here. This is my 1967 GTO Convertible which I have owned since 1972. Matching numbers with the 360 HO and 4 speed. She even costarred in a music video awhile back called "Rag Top Baby" which you can check out on you tube if you would like.
  14. When you consider that new-car life cycles are usually measured in years, not decades, it seems silly to describe new models as “generations.” The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is an exception: the 2019 Sprinter is only the third generation of Mercedes-Benz’s flagship van since its introduction in 1995, and the first new iteration in...View the full article

    Also big into firearms and target shooting (I'm a certified Training Counselor), just got into reloading, music (I play drums), computers and software, doing all kinds of crap with my tractor (we live in the country on 13.5 acres), got a zillion "home improvement" projects I'm always working on (I did -everything- on this one myself except for building the steel building and spraying the insulation [ I -did- build all of the bathroom including the plumbing and shower]: ) . Used to be heavily involved in the boy scouts program before we moved out here to the sticks - still like to camp and backpack. I'm a certified private pilot although I haven't been current/active in quite a few years, but it's still "on my list" of things to get back into. We love to travel... I'd like to get SCUBA certified...

    I read somewhere that Knight was quoted as saying he was the "first man in history to blow through $13 million dollars!"

    '69 GTO problems ???

    Turn signal issue fixed.......Hopefully. Added trans fluid to motor (made a mess) top is going up & down much better now. Put a 30 amp fuse in 'cause it kept blowing 20 amp fuses. "Dieseling" issue fixed......Hopefully. Thank You again for the help.

    '69 GTO problems ???

    Ok well I think I found the turn signal issue. The taillight housing bolts were loose, so the ground wire was only making contact once in a while. I tightened the housing bolts & it seems to be working fine now. I did put dielectric grease on all the bulbs just to add some insurance. The top motor is working, just very slowly. I blew a fuse were you said to look. It just maybe low on fluid. I will have to see if I somehow find out what fluid is used in it. I heard you cannot mix them or it will blow out the motor? As for the "dieseling", I did turn down the idle on the carb, started it & let it run for about 5 min, then shut it off & no "dieseling" took place. It just shut right off. So hopefully I just have to add a little fluid to it & it will be fine. I will let you know how I make out. Thanks again for all the help, Todd

    I’ve seen Grand Funk three time once at Geneva on the Lake as I said, once at Cleveland Public Hall, which was the best one I saw, and then at the Atlantic Pop Festivel where their Live Album was depicted to be made, but wasn’t real recorded there. always thought it was sad the way their relationship went south with Knight, but he did screw them!
