  2. So i figured i start a tread about the progress on our car and start adding as we go. We bought this 64 LeMans from a coworker that had it sitting in his backyard for 20 years, his dad bought it from the original owner. The engine was rebuilt 20years ago, newer started and sat with out intake or spark plugs. When i initially looked at the car i thought it was to rough and needed to much work but the more i thought about it i just could not let it slip away.

  7. Love Pontiacs of all decades, so I voted for all. If I had to choose only one decade......... tough choice between the 60's and 70's. I think the 50's produced some of my favorite cars, 57 wagon, 57 Bonnie, 58 Bonnie.

  8. In my opinion it is a way of forcing new technology on the general public that they do not want or really need. All of this is a result of "global warming" which I for one do not accept. If you go back to the beginning of recorded temperatures and compare them to present temperatures you will find that for the first half of the last century the "chicken little" headlines would change every 10 to 15 years from "we are going to freeze to we are going to boil" and so on. To make the point look at the previous record every time a new temperature record is set. It is generally 50 to 100 years old.

  9. Dealers have no clue what they have most of the time. They know the selling words ie Judge emblem on glove box,spoiler,hood tach etc.. but the less they " know" the less their held accountable for the frauds they sell. Yea in my opinion its a Lemans,,as obviously stated above.

  11. We have already had our 2nd stimulus checks. Same here, you can't buy appliances, water heaters are a huge problem. Replace a broken fridge??? Not gonna happen. Even floor models are gone. Our government is more worried about letting cross dressing fags use women's bathrooms, play on the girls sports teams, use the women's locker room and showers.

  13. Hello, My name is Lisa. Robert Gwynn was my step-father. I was a witness to the making of the Gwynn Prix. It was built at our house, in the garage, in Birmingham, Michigan USA I will do my best to answer any questions you may have. My mom and my step-father Bob Gwynn Sr. Passed away a several years ago. I'm the only one left who actually witnessed the making of the car first hand. I even helped at times!!! There was another Gwynn Prix built with less customization than the original. It was a burgundy color. I guess you could say it was more of a production model. My s

  15. A couple more pics, this is kind of where it is right now got most of the front suspension painted, cleaned and blasted the spindles and the control arms, installed new bushings and ball joints. it will also get all new steering linkages and body bushings eventually but they are on back order until April 😒 A lot of surface rust but no holes, only had to cut one lower bolt off for a fender everything else just unbolted with some lube. Nice with a CA car. Made a tub with water and citric acid and dipped a few parts and it works great. some stuff i brought to work and ran them in the big mac

  16. Thanks! This video is the first time I've seen the Pegasus at the GM Heritage Collection. I've had the honor of going there 3 times over the years, but you never know what will and won't be there on any given day. A lot of the cars are shipped all over the country to various car shows and concours. When the late Pontiac Historian John Sawruck was alive, he was able to get a couple of these cars to the Michigan Widetracker's Dustoff car shows. Sadly we lost that too with his passing.

  18. Buddy I hear ya! I suppose it’s not the place, but the fact is these action affect everybody at every level in every way!! When they started all their emissions crap in the late “60”s I didn’t like it! But I said if it made the air cleaner, produced less pollutants, I could deal with it! Then they kept adding and adding, but you know they figured out how to make it work, and work pretty darn good! Yet this truly is a whole different animal! Number one! You literally can not produce enough electric for wind, solar or hydro! Even if you combined them all! You can look it up if you doubt it

  19. To quote Dan Bongino! There are the stupid/stupid & the smart/stupid! The first one knows he’s stupid, the second one thinks he’s smart, but he’s really stupid! They are the dangerous ones! And we know where most of them are! Also you are right from the perspective that if they are effective at moving everything to electric, than they can control everything you own! How much energy you use! And once they moved everyone away from natural gas, gasoline Oil and the like it’s over! All the infrastructure would be gone! We would all be screwed!

  20. The real problem is that an increasing number of politicians world wide believe that government is the answer. The world was a lot better off when the prevailing wisdom was that government is the problem. I believe it was Will Rodgers, but I might be mistaken, who stated diapers and politicians should be changed often and for the same reason.

  21. Gotta agree with JustA! But “60”s &”70”s are my favorites! “80”s & “90”s in general were kind of a transition period, but they were definitely some outstanding ones even then! Then in the new millennium there was a bit of a resurgence in design via fwd! I take one bit of solace in the fact that Pontiac was closed by GM! It actually went out on top! With great regret by most nearly everyone! Still had a great presence and still had a loyal allegiance! Most of all the US car maker are doomed to a different fate! As you all step through the next 20 years and look back these will not have

  23. http://m.lynchandsonsclawson.com/obituaries/events?obituaryId=605138 In case anyone is interested. Here is my step dad, Bob Gwynn's obituary. Some of the dates are incorrect. His kids who wrote it were already grown up and gone when I came into the picture in 1972. They missed a lot of firsthand information that I have. It's unfortunate that his family completely edited my mother, Janet Gwynn, out of his obituary. Which I think is a pretty crappy thing to do! She was a good and dutiful wife. Who supported all of his endeavors. And she deserves to be acknowledged in his obituary!

  24. Back in the day, the points and condenser were separate items and not physically attached to each other. You had to mount them and attach the lead from the condenser to the points. Today, I don't bother with points, condenser, or dwell. I have a Pertronix Igniter II kit - it's now the Igniter III kit - in my stock OEM non-HEI distributor. No more physical points to wear out! Here is Australian ad for one: http://www.pertronix.com.au/ignitor3.html

  28. No, an oil change, nor an exhaust leak would not cause the engine to not run! But reading through your thread, quickly I might add so maybe I missed something, I see you say you changed your plugs! So I have to ask, did you gap them correctly for your engine? Did you by chance not get the spark plug wire put back correctly? Have you checked the spark to know that the coil packs are working? Cold weather can have a nasty impact on old coil packs! The other question to answer is Frosty’s about the fuel! You need to put a pressure gage on the Schrader valve and see what the pressure is! Even if y

  29. Hi Lisa, It amazing that you replied on this thread, I absolutely loved that car, I did sell it and have regretted it ever since, I have let the new owner know that you have replied on this forum. The quality of the workmanship was incredible, the car was a credit to him. Its still in amazing condition after all these years! Hopefully the new owner will check out this forum now I have made him aware

  32. Yeas we all like to Yakety Yack sometime , i used to get my dose on Saturday mornings at the do nut shop in HB but not during this last year. Parts runs can be fun and they usually happen after a lot of time spent in front of the computer figuring out who has the best price, best stuff or best shipping. Started to work on the "small" rust holes in the passenger side floor pan ( the only ones in the whole inside floor) and they of course grew when i started to weld,so i decided to buy a patch panel and cut it down to what i need because i didn't feel like making one with all the beads

  33. I like to use a good quality voltmeter for all electrical troubleshooting, learn how to do a voltage drop test both on the ground and the positive side, and check with a load, running the starter for those cables or all the accessories on for the alternator. If ever in doubt make a new cable or replace, i also like the soft fine stranded welding cable, crimped and soldered also use shrink tubing with glue in it to seal the crimp/end with. i work on 24v systems with 500A alternator all the time and grounds are critical. Remember that your body has rubber bushings between frame and bod

  34. Justa remember JUSTA, we are close enough to NPD to be dangerous too!!! I don't think twice about jumping in the pickup and doing a parts run. If I'm real lucky, Indymanjoe is home, and and I can stop by his house and Ponti-yack at his place.

  36. I am not aware of anyone making a header for the G6 or the 3.5L engine. Custom made is the only way to go that I know of. If you go that route, be prepared to get a custom tune on your ECM too to take full advantage of your new headers.

  38. Subject: Fwd: In Their Nineties Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember .. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks. 'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?' 'Sure.' 'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks 'No, I can remember it.' 'Well, I

  39. Unfortunately yes..Or you could remove the intake manifold instead...To replace the O ring between the timing cover and the intake manifold.... Either way you would have to replace the gaskets... Timing cover gaskets or intake manifold gaskets depending on which way you go.....Personally I would JustA remove the intake manifold....(Whole lot Easier and quicker)....

  41. Thanks for sharing this Frosty. What an interesting video. I was hoping they would show the 1990 Fiero GT, but I guess it's not there right now. Thought I'd share that towards the end, they show the 1970 Pontiac Pegasus Concept Car. The production Pontiac Fiero was originally slated to be called the Pegasus, named after this car. At the last minute, the name was changed, but the badging had already been developed so the Pegasus remained on the Fiero badge! Folks sometimes ask about that at shows and that is the reason.

  42. hmm, Andy don’t waste you time ... if you are going to put new heads on your engine , make sure they are right.👍 or you are wasting your time and money when I was young I bought some double hump fuelies, stuck them straight on my 327 in my 61 impala .. and they ran like shit !! moral of the story when using old heads get them crack tested, check the face is flat , stick new valve seats and guides in em and make sure you have the right valves and set your springs to the correct rating for your cam . Hell I would blend the bowls and runners with a dremal

  44. wdl, i think its the other way around, your relay needs to be down sized, led lights pull stuff all current, you could even delete your relay, thats how lower current they pull. on my 59 caddy i left the light rely in and its working, but, with led, ya justA dont need it, you really have no current pull. old school lights pull shit loads of current hence the relay and a big fat cable from the battery to feed them... led= a faction of current load= relay not required... well thats my thoughts... do we have a auto sparky that can enlight us... get it en-LIGHT

  45. Bigger issue to keep in mind is value of our pride N joys. They could become worthless after all the time and money spent. We all remember cash for clunkers. As TWO lane said, We are all going to have things to Thank Obiden for in the near future... He has spent the 1st 2 weeks practicing his signature (as per alzheimer's therapy) Somebody needs to move him onto colors N shapes before we have nothing left of the country.
