    Thanks, guys. I didn't have to do too much to get it running. The first thing I did was pull the plugs and squirt some Marvel Mystery Oil into the cylinders. I let it soak in for about 10 days. While that was happening, I flushed the radiator and changed the oil. I pulled the fuel tank, which was interesting b/c the car was in a space where I could not use a jack. So I spent alot of time crawling under the car. I got the tank dropped and emptied. It was rust free & intact, so I put a new sending unit in and put the tank back up. I changed the differential oil & gasket. I put a new battery in & cranked out that Mystery Oil. I put in new plugs, cranked it a bit & was happy when that oil light went out. It fired right up -- rough, but it was running. Amazingly, the brakes were working. A friend adjusted the timing. My father in law put a Holley 4 barrel in back in the '80s and it seems to stumble a bit when I put my foot into it. The car has dual glasspacks/cherry bombs on it now --- it's loud but sounds really cool. I'm not sure if I'll put mufflers on it or keep it as is. Here's the first start -- first time running since '89 or '90: I bought a disc conversion kit for the front brakes, and I'm upgrading to 15" wheels. I also need to put on tailpipes (the glasspacks are right under the car.). It has a few cosmetic issues but is very solid. I hope to have it on the road by Fall.

    Hey Gang, just back for the POCI Convention over in Fort Worth Texas, and the heat was on. Thought I would share a few of my show favorites with those who couldn't or didn't make it. ENJOY;... https://flic.kr/s/aHskZzwDgN

    The Dream Cruise is gearing up with cars out all day and evenings are already packed to cruise the famed M1. With my Sunbird back on the road, my girls have brought up taking the Sunbird trailer so they can sit back there and throw candy again. (it's been awhile) Also seemed like the perfect way to get my HUGE tent down there. In an effort to clean up the cruise route from large trucks, from Semi's to the huge rolling billboard trailers that block the view of the cars. The powers that be have closed Woodward to all such traffic including anyone pulling a trailer. We have a bunch of us FP members that hang out together and will be located @ Woodward/Widetrack and M59 in Pontiac if any new Forever Pontiac members would like to meet up.

    I heard something about one or both of them working....not sure if they will be there or not. A serious cluster f*&k was going on the last few days. Seems the normal corner that the Widetrackers have used for years (corner of M-59 and South Bound Woodward Loop) in Pontiac has been pulled out from under us by either the property owner and/or parking lot owner. I have not heard the story. Bottom line is our juicy (e.g. shaded) corner is lost - for this year at least. Our diligent club folks have secured an alternate spot near us the Amtrack station - a grassy area but no tree cover. So EZ Up tents will be the order of the day for sure.

    A 350 block will be stamped 350 or 50 on the block, drivers side above the oil pan. A 400 will be stamped 400 or 00 in the same location. As for your read question, depends on the head. The most desirable flowing heads have a 2.11" intake and 1.77" exhaust valves. Pontiac made several over the years. However a good machine shop can do wonders with more common 1.96/1.66 heads with a port/polish job to make the head flow. What is the two digit/character designation on your heads? Should be between #1 and 3 cylinders.

    This show in Macungie PA has club day on Sunday, and the Keystone State Chapter of POCI has hosted the Pontiac / Oakland area since sometime in the '70's. We had about 65 vehicles in attendance this year. Unfortunately it is the same weekend as the Tri-Power Nationals in Norwalk, but we still get some good examples of our favorite marque. First up, a rare 1940 Pontiac Convertible. There were 4 Oaklands in attendance.

    I discovered that a bad ground wire connection inside a rear turn signal housing plug was causing my lights to do strange things. I replaced the plug and all is well.

    Was there Saturday. Bigger and better than ever. So many absolutely beautiful Pontiac. Been going to this event from the beginning. Only missed 4 times. Firehawk club, tempest club half dozen Can Ams.....Fell in love with a black 69 GTO with white interior, 4spd, hideaways. All stock and absolutely perfect. He wouldn't sell it for any price. Great time. If you love Pontiacs, its a must go. p

    For those who like Shiny Machines here are some images from our road trip north of Fort Worth up to Nocona TX. I had found this museum online prior to leaving and wanted to check it out. We drove the hell out of the Little Indian racking up near 300 miles in 3 days. This place was in the middle of nowhere. The link will take you to some of ever increasing inventory of this personal collection of machines called the HORTON CLASSIC CAR MUSEUM, I was floored by this collection of great cars, Enjoy! https://flic.kr/s/aHsm126fWD

    "Chevrolet SS This one's complicated. Really complicated. The Chevy SS' demise has more to do with parent company General Motors' decision to end manufacturing in Australia than it does to do with weak sales in America. But that's not to say that the enthusiasts who begged for this V-8 muscle sedan exactly lined up to buy it, either." OK GM - when did you actually market the car to the public either - beyond putting stickers on NASCAR Chevys in the SPRINT Cup? I can't recall an actual Chevy commercial for this $48k+ Chevy replacement for the G8. GM has a nasty habit that thinks that certain cars (e.g. muscle / sports cars mainly) should sell themselves with little or no marketing dollars - except when a new re-design is introduced. Pro - being closer to Detroit, I've seen many that are on the list. Still the Lancer is the one that never gained traction not matter what Mitsubishi did - sports car or sedan. It has always been a sales dude here in North America.

    Bruce, welcome to FP. Your YH code and #15 head indicates that this is a 455 from a Bonneville/Catalina. It is the 360 HP version motor for these big cars. It has 1.96" intake and 1.66" exhaust valves and 87 cc combustion chambers. The ideal heads in 1970 were the Ram Air III and Ram Air IVs for the GTOs and Firebirds, which were #12 and #614 heads. They have 2.11" intake and 1.77" exhaust valves and 71 and 72 cc chambers. All that said, the motor is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. I'd guess its worth between $200-$1000 as a core motor.

    I don't trust anyone .. you know that. But brazing (not welding) a manifold ... if an exhaust shop isn't up to that ... WTF. Hell, my local scrap yard can do that. And for a manifold, 9 time outta 10 a good braze will last forever. Literally the only stress on it is thermal.

    Thanks for sharing all of those pictures for those of us who could not be there. It takes a lot of effort to take that many shots while also trying to enjoy the show. Especially liked all of the big cars with stick shifts. Nothing like a big old Pontiac with a 4-speed !!

    Sorry to say, it was a wash out. With my roads all mudd and rain all morning I left my cars home. Bought an entry for the GTO anyway to help support their charity and help cover their cost to put on the show. Bakers is an awesome place to hold a show. Stayed til about 11am and it was still raining. There were about 30 cars that braved the weather and they were hoping for more as the weather broke.
