    Well, fa la la! Got a chance to start the rear cover widening I spoke of a while back. For whatever reason Pontiac really started to narrow the back cover after the tires. So as you can see when the rims are widened and wider tires are installed the tires when viewed from the back appear the stick out quite a bit. It doesn’t look that way when viewed from the front just the back. So I’m widening the a new rear cover to change this! Current cover look. New cover same as current look. Same as current look. Right side widened look ( about 2” wider ) Right side widened look, needed to relieve the inset panel to keep it from distorting the exhaust port opening. Left side stock look ( about 2” narrower ) than the right side. ( I’m working on yours too Frosty ☃️ ! )

    So my youngest got his 55" 4000K HD Television and I can't say as I understand why as he had a perfectly good TV in his room already. (I know I sure as hell never had a television until not only was I out of the house but it wasn't until I was out of the Corps!!! These kids today!) So the obvious thing to do was to hijack his 36" HD TV and turn it into a computer monitor so I don't have to use reading glasses to see the screen anymore......but I might now need suntan lotion.! Hope everyone had a safe and relaxing Xmas!

    Would also highly recommend..(If the Budget allows)..That you do a line bore...Then square the decks up to insure that the rotating assembly is running square and perpendicular to the centerline of the crankshaft and not working against each other...Also do a real good balance on the crankshaft....Even in a stock type rebuild squaring and balancing everything up..Will free up a couple of extra ponies and make for sewing machine smooth operation and longevity....If done properly...Also stay away from chrome piston rings (Can take forever to seat among other things)...As for the cam..going with a hydraulic roller is also an excellent upgrade....Don't forget good Quality freeze plugs....

    Agree with Sprint 6...If all other towing options are unavailable...Make sure you pull the driveshaft out it....Towing it with the rear wheels on the ground with the trans in neutral over an extended distance will cause the trans to overheat because the trans fluid isn't being circulated and being cooled thru the radiator...Like it would be if the engine is running.... Will also have to plug the rear of the trans to keep all the fluid from running out.....

    You aren't thinking about the Zinger mini cars are you? These were cool at indoor auto shows when I was a kid. They recently came back to the Detroit Autorama a few years ago.

    This bit from Pontiac Paradise covers virtually every speciality intake I know of, except for a Weiand or BDS supercharger intake. I don't see anything like what you've described. That is not to say it does not exist for a Pontiac either. http://www.pontiacparadise.com/parts-id/engine-parts/spc-intake-manifolds.php

Crashed it 3 years ago and then the project started - body swap and some more upgrades followed in the next 2 years till got it back on road. All other are still here. Other ones have no pictures yet.

    I always just use an old yoke..Am pretty sure could get a plug thru any auto parts supply house.....or maybe use an old plastic cup over the tail shaft with a hose clamp on it.....or something along those lines....

    Spark plug selection and gap is absolutely critical to plug and engine performance. Always, always, always double check the spark plug gap of new plugs out of the box. Things can always happen in shipping. Gaps differ with the type of core/tip the spark plug is made of: traditional copper, platinum, or iridium. For traditional copper the gap is usually .060, platinum and iridium is .050. This is a huge difference in terms of spark travel. It is also critical that you select the proper plug for your car. It's okay to be cheap (to an extent). So copper plugs are often cheapest and usually don't go 100k miles like the platinum or iridium plugs do. Just remember to gap it correctly and get the correct spark plug for your car and engine combination. The use of anti-seize compound on the outside threads won't impact the performance of the plugs. The point is to not over do it. Ditto with di-electric grease.

    Me too! Considering what they claim they started with and this is what they ended up with. I hope they got the asking price in scrap metal. https://houston.craigslist.org/cto/d/humble-1988-chevy-suburban-mini-dually/6766312145.html 1988 Chevy Suburban--Mini Dually - $5250

    More so the reindeer head band that was making him crazy. 10 seconds later he ripped it off and we had to rescue it from becoming shreds.

    Some early adopters are out there. It's not like they are readily available to the masses. Think about it - things we don't have that science fiction writers predicted we would have by now. 1. Flying cars and personal jet packs 2. A Moon base - anyone remember Moon Base Alpha? 3. Anti-aging pills 4. Trips to Jupiter - 2001: A Space Odyssey and its sequel 2010: Odyssey Two 5. Nuclear Holocaust / Mutual Assured Destruction / End of Civilization as we know it 6. Super-sonic Air Travel - this is one we actually had and then lost after the last flight of the Concorde back in 2003. 7. Robot butlers / servants - Roomba's don't really count. I don't think that is what Isaac Asimov had in mind. 8. The Zombie Apocalypse Here are some things that did come true: 1. The Cubs won the World Series 2. Body Scanners - now in airports to look for bombs or terrorists - Total Recall would be happy 3. Robot Vacuum Cleaners - not quite Rosie from the Jetsons, but okay the Roomba fits in here. 4. Cell phones - I think were inspired by Star trek communicators

    Here is a page from the 1967 Option brochure showing the Factory &/or Dealer options on seat belts. Retractors on front bench and a third belt on rear were options. The Drop-Top shown below has the 3rd belt option on the rear seat. Cheers.
