  1. Past hour
  2. That sure sucks, but you were smart enough to have the work done with a warranty. Still a pain, but it's covered.
  3. Now your cookin.....95% of the gas i buy is from Kroger. Best deal out there!!
  4. I'd never heard or seen the Pontiac Farago CF 428 before. I am disappointed that they went between concept vehicles and production vehicles. I think I would have suggested that the author stick to one or the other. Especially since, in the case of the Banshee series there were four of them, they only mention #1 and #4. I guess #2 and #3 didn't make the grade. We could mention most of the Canadian-built Pontiacs, the Australian-built Pontiac pickup of 1929, the delivery trucks of 1926 1/2 to 1928, the 1979-1980 Grand Camino, the four-passenger Fiero or the lone convertible Fiero, virtually any of the other unnamed concept cars, the Pontiac G8 ST (that almost made production), the Mexico-only G3 How about the 1977 Pontiac Phantom - mind you this is not a working car but a full size model Ditto the 1999 Concept GTO....

  6. Acura MDX luxury crossover is $100 more expensive for 2020 For the 2020 model year, everything stays the same for the Acura MDX crossover, except the price. Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross earns IIHS award The IIHS has given consumers one more reason to consider the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross crossover: its safety. 2020 Buick Encore Review The 2020...View the full article
  7. The end is nigh for two niche Volkswagen models. In a Wednesday announcement, VW said it will end production of the Golf Alltrack and SportWagen models for the U.S. market. Both models are currently made at the automaker's Puebla, Mexico, factory where production of the Beetle ended last week. VW cited declining wagon sales in favor of crossovers...View the full article
  8. https://motor-junkie.com/14-forgotten-pontiacs-probably-never-knew-existed/2218/ Decent article with one I was not aware of like the Sunburst. Any you didn't know or forgot about?
  9. For the 2020 model year, everything stays the same for the Acura MDX crossover, except the price. Buyers will need to shell out just a little more to step into a base MDX. Honda's luxury brand said in a Tuesday release the 2020 MDX will cost $45,395 after a $995 destination charge. Those looking for added fuel efficiency will need to spend $53,895...View the full article
  10. The IIHS has given consumers reason to consider the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross crossover: its safety. The Eclipse Cross walked away from the insurance industry-funded safety group's barrage of tests with a Top Safety Pick award, though that's shy of the Top Safety Pick+ honor. To earn a Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must score a "Good" rating in...View the full article
  11. Front seal blew out !! Stuff happens, but a lot with me !!! I guess that's the price you pay for driving these classics !! I just think about all the smiles I put on peoples faces when they see the cars and that makes up for the frowns on mine !!
  12. Yesterday
  13. $2.59 today at Kroger. I had 10 cents off to bring it down to $2.49 for 87 regular.
  14. I'd love to go. In fact I should go since I am the President of the GMC Speciality Chapter. Alas I don't have the extra vacation time for it. Hope it is everything you want and more. I suspect Tim Dye will be bring the Pontiac sleigh - he's the only one I know who owns one.
  15. Dude, that truly sucks. Glad you got the warranty and it let go near home instead of Ohio. That towing bill could have been awful.
  16. What sort of history are you looking for? Some states Dept of Motor Vehicles (but not all) will provide limited past owner/address/information for a fee. Certain personal identifiable information (PII) is protected by federal law and cannot be provided. Most likely they can tell you if it was registered in their state and what city. Laws/information/fees vary state to state. I would recommend you reach out to the R E Olds Transportation Museum in Lansing Michigan if you are looking for information on the Delmont 88 itself. http://reoldsmuseum.org/ The OldsVIN Decoder website can help you decode the VIN # of your car. https://www.v8cars.hu/oldsvin/decode.php Haggerty's Valuation Tool can tell you what it's worth in USD https://www.hagerty.com/apps/valuationtools/1968-oldsmobile-delmont_88
  17. Hello here in London we are restoring a 68 Delmont 88. the US reg was 6KXVO71. does anyone have any history for this car?
  18. Needing instructions on how to make adjustments to the convertible top frame. Replaced pump & motor unit, both cylinders and bushing. The drivers side is perfect and windows fit properly, however the passengers side has a "dip" (please is pictures) in the frame keeping the windows from not fitting properly. Need to get passengers side frame adjusted and get "dip" leveled out. Thanks for reading and any information.
  19. A 389 block and a 400 block are external the same. However, I think your issue is with the engine mount holes (that are drilled and tapped). They do not line up, correct? Blocks made between 1970 and 1976 had five holes so that blocks could be used in both the new and old models. 1977 to 1981 only had the three holes. So you may have to drill and tap the proper bolt holes if they are not drilled and tapped already. 1959-1969 Blocks have only (2) motor mount holes on each side of the block (see #2 & #5). These blocks will fit any 1964-1974 Pontiac A-body except cars originally equipped with a 455, which used a 3-bolt style mount. Later cars with 3-bolt motor mounts can be adapted to fit this block using a Butler Performance WRP-MM6 or Ames Performance N24CCA adapter kit. The adapters are available but not a perfect fit so expect some swearing / adjusting when installing.
  20. 2020 Honda Insight hybrid sedan gets $135 price bump, efficiency stays the same The new Honda Insight sedan will cost incrementally more in base versions, but its estimated fuel economy won't change at all. Sticking around, VW redesigns 6-speed manual transmission VW redesigned its 6-speed manual for multiple cars sold around the world, a signal...View the full article
  21. Yup, along with my license plate, Tiger tail, and my real Ace Wilson ROYAL Pontiac license plate frame.
  22. The mighty frugal Honda Insight returns for the 2020 model year, though shoppers will be met with a $135 price hike. Honda said on Monday the hybrid sedan will cost $23,860 after a $930 destination charge. Aside from a new Platinum White Pearl exterior color available, no options or standard features change for the 2020 model year. Those kicking...View the full article
  23. Volkswagen isn't prepared to say goodbye to the manual transmission and debuted its redesigned 6-speed unit Monday. The brand said the redesigned manual transmission focuses on efficiency and shaving carbon dioxide production while driving. Total, the gearbox will help save up to 5 grams per kilometer driven, depending on the engine application...View the full article

  26. Thanks stratman. I had the good sense to pack another T-shirt that day for the potluck dinner we have at the club meeting. I figured I would get sweaty at the show. So I had a change of shirts already planned. I am very thankful I didn't get burned.
