  1. Newbie here just picked this nice 65 Tempest Custom Convertible up without an engine. I owned the other A-body Coupe in my teens and 20s but sold it early in my 30s. Looking forward to driving a RWD again.

  2. Final hookups. Lets see if we can’t finish this thing up. If you are going to use an LT there are a few things that will be problematic. The first thing is the loom you choose. Be careful of your supplier. I actually purchased two, the first did not have the correct connectors at the front of the engine for the cam advance and would not even start the engine. Don’t remember who it was but they were in Michigan. After repeated attempts to contact them unsuccessfully I gave up and got my credit card company involved. Long story short they eventually said to send it back and when they got confirm

  4. Hello, my moniker is Bonneville 67. I'm 66 yrs young, I build scale model cars, (since I was knee-high to a Cragar mag, and still not much taller.).Pontiacs are my favorite car I've owned a '65 & '67 Bonnevilles and a '65 GTO. By far the most exciting and fun to drive. Here are a few of my Pontiac models I have built. The '65 Bonneville convertible is a model of one I owned. It was converted from a hardtop, I also converted it to a bench seat like my 1/1 was. Conversion from Revell 1966 Pontiac GTO 1966 Pontiac Tempest This build is of my older brothers old Tempest.

  6. I actively encourage anyone to continue to throw ideas at me, because if you can find 14 x 6 in a 5 x 5 AND at the right price, let me know. Believe me, 14" 5 bolt wheels just don't exist. And here's a reminder of how good the Torqs will look. You just need to imagine the pictured vehicle as longer & lower, and with heavily 'patinated' paint. I guess another reason to steer away from the Cragars is that they are predominately a 'muscle car' wheel, whereas the ol' GP is a little flabby to be called muscley! Oh dear, I can hear the keyboards tapping already - let the comments beg

  8. The short answer is yes you can add a booster to your existing drum brakes. However for safety's sake, I would hope your existing master cylinder is a dual reservoir unit and not a single reservoir unit like a lot of them were in the 60s. The other consideration is to insure that your engine is producing enough vacuum to work the booster. 18 pounds of vacuum is typical - 23 pounds max. The only other questions I would have is will your current master cylinder bolt up to the booster cleanly ? Also do you think you have enough flex/slack in the existing brake lines to push the master cylind

  13. Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another 'Economic Stimulus' payment. This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by using a Q & A format: Q. What is an 'Economic Stimulus' payment ? A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers. Q. Where will the government get this money? A. From taxpayers. Q. So the government is giving me back my own money? A. Only a smidgen of it. Q. What is the purpose of this payment ? A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus st

  14. The endgame is to convert to disc down the road, but I only have the booster for now. I'm aware of the other parts needed, I'm look to do more work to the front end at hat time, (i.e.-front shocks, spring, ball joints, etc.. ) So being that i have the booster now, could i use this to improve the drum brakes until i do the conversation? I'm concern for the current brake cylinders, will they handle to booster?

  15. Fitzy, I totally respect your decision, after all it's your car! It won't stop me from throwing some other period wheel ideas at you though. Who knows, something might stick!
