Ames...Steve is in the fight of his life


Recommended Posts



Please keep Steve Ames of Ames Performance in your prayers. Steve fell, had a brain bleed, had surgery, and is in a coma.

Steve Ames is the person who started Ames Performance Engineering about 40 years ago. Anyone restoring a Pontiac has probably ordered parts from Ames.

If you have ever gone to Norwalk to the Pontiac Nationals in August, Ames provides the barbecue dinner free of charge to those entering a car in the show.

I am sad to report that Steve Ames passed away last night.

Here is an article from 2012 from Hemmings that is a good synopsis of his career.
