  4. Our Single Family Owner 69 GTO that I restored, with a modern twist. Butler 467, with a TREMEC TKO 600, mated to the original 10 bolt 3:55 rear. It's still green with gold interior. Of course, big Wilwood Brakes were needed to slow her down... Enjoy!

  7. Hello Pontiac Fans. I have finally got another Pontiac after many decades without one. A 1970 Pontiac LeMans Sport at age 16 is what sparked my enthusiasm and of course I fell in love with the GTO. Realizing that I cannot afford the GTO or even the 64 on up Tempest and LeMans, I found a 1963 LeMans last week and it now resides in my garage. It will be a project car shared with my oldest son, we plan on just getting her back to stock and trying to preserve the unique history and drive train on that year. So, I look forward to being in this community and I am sure I will be asking for advice and direction during this project. We are calling her Molly, don't know why, my son just said Molly is what she looks like :-) The attached picture is a rendering my youngest son did for us and Molly is below!

  12. This is my Mom's 1966 Grand Prix. (Formally my Dad's). It was the car my Mom & Dad went on their first date in & also their honeymoon. It has a little over 13,000 miles on it. All original. (Except tires and wheels). My Dad was the original owner, and my Mom kept the car when my Dad passed away.

  14. Well guys, I never thought I'd ever see this car again. Here is a photo of my very first Pontiac, originally a Regatta Blue 1973 Pontiac Lemans Sport Coupe. It had a 350 v8, 2-bbl, AC, and a 375 TH transmission, and a white vinyl interior. I purchased this car shortly after I graduated from high school. I graduated in 1978. I drove the car for about a year and then the rust started coming thru the rear quarter panels. So the following summer, in 1979, I started sanding and bondoing the car. I eventually primered, block sanded and then applied six coats of Martinique Blue Poly (a 1978 Trans Am color) lacquer (yes - lacquer) and 8 coats of lacquer clear. I painted the car in the family garage while my parents were on vacation in Scotland. They were pissed that I got paint on the garage floor but my dad was happy to see the car all one color and not "Bondo" colored. I used my grandfathers tiny air gun and compressor to do it too. It was at least 50 years old then! The thing that upset me most was that two weeks after I completed the paint job, I parked the car in the student parking ramp at my local community college that I was attending. Some "mofo" keyed the car - up one side and down the next! I had spent the entire summer working on this car and some jealous SOB destroys it in seconds! Campus security could do nothing since there are no security cameras in the student parking ramp, only in the facility ramp. Huh. imagine that. Students pay the bills but we can't afford cameras to protect their vehicles. Grrrr.. So I touched up the paint as best I could temporarily. My parents were upset as well since they knew how hard I had worked on the car. I spent the next summer re-doing the paint job but my heart has not quite in it at that point. I drove the car two more years and then sold it for a brown '80 Buick Regal with a 231 V6. While I had the Lemans, I purchased a "Trans Am" Formula steering wheel. I added a set of Cragar wheels and Goodyear and BF Goodrich tires to it. A set of Gabriel Airjacker air shocks raised the back end to allow for the L60-15 tires in the back to keep from rubbing on the fenders. I added a B&M shift kit. This is when I learned I had a 375TH transmission. At that time, I had never heard of a 375, just the 350TH and 400TH. I bought a 350TH shift kit but the new oil pan gasket was all wrong. I went back to the speed shop 4 times to get the right gasket. Finally the guy had me bring the pan in, that's when he knew I had a 375TH. I still have the Formula steering wheel, it's on Lucy today. When my dad passed away in 2018, while cleaning out his garage, I found my old Cragars. They are somewhat rusted and pitted, but I have them, lug nuts and all. I think I will have them re-chromed someday and use them on something. I'm not sure what. The backspacing was all wrong back in the day and they are all wrong now, but I'm sure I'll find a use for them. The photo you are looking at is when the Lemans was still in primer. You can see the Cragar's on it too. I never knew my dad took this photograph. This is a 35mm slide photo that I recent found and converted to digital. So the photo quality isn't the greatest. Man I hope I find more photos like this.

  15. Lookin back, it's amazing how brand Loyal we were on everything. (and many of us still are) The win on Sunday = sales on Monday generation. From the Big 3 car manufacturers to every sticker/sponsor on our favorite racers. You can't say racing in any form without thinkin Valvoline, Penzzoil, Castrol, STP on the tip of your tongue as you walked into the auto parts store. But these were competing with your favorite/trusted gas stations, Mobil, Shell, Texaco, Exxon, Sinclair oil companys to name a few for your oil needs. Other than Mobil, where do the rest of the oil brands blend into the list? Did they not score high enough? Or simply too many to list? I was going to make a joke about not going through the BS of sending in a stool sample of my oil for analysis, but apparently Stewy does. " Very cool " if that's what your in to. At what point does average Joe say this is what I've always trusted and it's never let me down. As I said before Last Indian, where would we be without all the countless hours, testing, tuning and producing the highest quality products available, that you and many others have the knowledge and have worked to expose what is truly THE BEST. 40yrs ago an engine with 100,000 on it was junk. Today it's Justa well broken in, with 200,000 as the new bench mark. Salute

  17. Wow.... only joined yesterday and already a wealth of knowledge, doom and marital advise.... now I am really scared!!! I thought I had made a good choice with the bucket of bolts!!! not so sure now!! I am a very cautious and thoughtful person, so I have been considering this and researching for months and months and...... months!!! My google search is full of companies, engines, parts, carpets, suspension, brakes, paint, wheels.......... I spend every evening watching Bitchin Rides, Texas Metal, Iron Resurrection...... ( i work away from home). Anyway having taken the leap... no turning back now!! So you lot better prepare yourself for a bunch of dumb questions!! I am a (Brit) in Houston, any suggestions on the Pontiac owners or swap meets?

  22. 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!

  26. Our family grew up restoring and showing Firebirds, and this one is the third that we have owned. I think my parents have a special place in their heart for 1968's since that was the year they were married:) This Firebird was so original that when it was purchased about 15 years ago the rear color match seat belts were still bundled in their original plastic. I purchased the Pontiac Historical Society information kit on this car and loved reading about the $800+ in extras that were ordered... the push button AM radio cost as much as the Rally wheels!

  29. I got to spend almost 2 days working on Lucy this weekend. It was hot and it was even hotter working with the heat gun! I think I tweaked my knee in the process. It's been screaming at me all night and all day today. It hasn't hurt this bad in months. I have the dash installed. I had to re-use the old engine and power connections from the old console tach I had, so I ended up butchering both ends of that new wiring harness - go figure.... so much for buying a pre-made one! LOL! The tach now works and works well! I zip tied up the excess wire under the dash. I ended up taking the headlight switch back out (after the photo below was taken) once I tested the headlights and nothing was coming on and the pull knob was coming back out. I realized the retaining nut that holds the switch to the dash was messed up and I know have to order a new one from OPGI (no local parts store carries them, I checked). The switch is fine. I tested it once I got it out of the dash. I re-attached the cable between the heater control and heater core box. I began the long tedious process of connecting the speaker wires up to the new radio's wiring harness. I ended up on OPGI and NPD's websites last night - spent another $300 on stuff. Hopefully most of it will be here by the weekend (with luck). I also spent another $250 for a replacement battery for my cordless impact gun, a new electric impact gun, and some impact sockets and extentsions. I am a money spending fool right now. I think I have a problem with that new circuit board I bought for the cluster. I think it is the wrong one. When I hit the high beam, I get the right turn signal to come on (non-flashing). When I turn on the right turn signal, I have no flashing turn signal indicator at all. Sigh.....I haven't research that one yet. I'm going to be really pissed if I have to take that dash back out and replace that circuit board again. I still have to run the power connections for the new radio before I can button up the dash. I didn't get to them this weekend.

  30. Well this is the first look at the Indian with the new front cover/splitter/emblem! Not finished quite yet, but getting close. A couple more weeks. Really weird to have it on the ground after 10+ months in the air! It’s usually on the ground by late May! Took it out around the block to see what the new NACA duct setup and tranny cooler we’re like! It was well worth the work, that’s all I can say! Been a strange year! Still have the inserts for the front cover to finish, as well as the plenum cover and still need to install the interior racing foot pad!
