  1. I’ll apologize up front if I offend anyone! Oh what the hell no I don’t! This is in a nutshell the emasculation of American! It started quite a while ago, but really gained ground under the Obama administration, sorry just a fact! Want more proof, see what the Democratic’s did in congress two weeks ago? Now in congress sessions you can’t be a father or brother or father-in-law, etc... And the list goes on and on! This is to strip every single one of us of our masculinity or femininity, our civil rights under the constitution, which you can pretty much wipe your you know what with now! We

  5. Kiwi, It is reasonable to presume that the tranny pan should be parallel to the frame rails, but what is actually more relevant is that the mounting face of the carburetor on the intake manifold be level! This needs to be level! This can only be done accurately when the car is on the ground and the suspension is complete and loaded! I.E. car is basically completed, interior is in, all body panels on, gas tank full or at least approximated with weight, etc.. This is actually a fairly critical measurement as it then will give you the angle of the driveshaft to the differential! Which in turn is

  7. Boxes ticked today. Drive shaft at engineers, will get new tube, universals and balance, be ready next week. Brake hoses dropped off at my mates brake shop, he is going to make some really cool hoses... more to come🙄 Hoses for power steer dropped off at the hydraulic hose guy ( old customer of mine) and he will reproduce the factory hose and supply some 3/8 return hose. I had a really hard time finding a litre can of satin black paint in this town to use on the radiator cross member and inner guards, i justA hope what i have will work🙄... thats tomorrows job, sand blast, p

  8. So what you're saying is you'll get around to it in the year 2525? Yeah, can I convince you to mush through the snow a little earlier than that? In direct contrast we are sweltering through 35°C most days down here. Australia is either on fire or under water for most of the year.

  15. Hi, Glad to be here. My Dad was a Pontiac guy, he had a '48 then a '53 that I barely remember. First car I drove at 16 (1969) was a 1959 4 dr Catalina, 389, 4bbl, color: Amethyst. It was awesome. 1970 he bought a 1963 Grand Prix, 389, 4bbl, 2:32 rear. It was Gold with a white interior like on the calendar and once rolling it took off! Pics to follow thanx

I still have indents in my back!😳 Last indian!!!! wtf ! you did your 69 out side??? and you JustA,, stitching sheet metal in after your surgery!!! another wtf ! you both are legends Having said that, the only reason i have a shed, and hoist is these things were not around when i was young,the only hoist i knew of was at our local gara

  19. LMAO NOT the smartest thing I've ever done. Have an industrial come along. Cut a 6X6 barn beam to cover 4, 2X4 trusses for each end of the body. Lifted the front of the body 4in and left it hangin by chain. I had mis- aligned the front 6X6 and was off center on the rear of the body leaving most of the weight on 2 trusses. YEP Snap....busted one of the trusses while pulling out the old frame. If this thing goes any more South, I not only take out my project GTO but my Sunbird sittin next to it as well. 16 x24 garage with one side of each car tucked up against the wall. Scrambled to

  21. Well this looks like a good forum to join. Looking forward to participating in the conversations. My recent acquisition of a 1991 Sunbird Convertible makes the 9th Pontiac of my driving career - mostly Fieros & Sunbirds. This 30 year old Sunbird only had 30,000 miles on it when I bought it last month. Loving it.

  22. Yes that’s a very good point mate we do lots of cruises that drive around in convoy really slow , like the Christmas parade etc and that’s why I am thinking to go electric , to get that cfm up at low speeds 👍 and good point about the four core I will call in on Monday and ask Maurice the rad man if he is building me a four rower👍

  24. Have a list of gear to get today for the weekend, and i am going to drop the bent drive shaft off at the engineers to make a whole replacement today

  25. Pretty sure it’s connection point is the same as my Camaro’s was (see pic)! The wiring from the top, horn, turn signal, flashers, disconnects mid column & comes out the top, through the plastic sleeve that the wiring runs through! But if all he is doing is replacing the steering wheel he should not need to pull the wiring!

  26. Had horses my whole life on my grandfathers farm. My Dad used to let a neighbor harvest our 10 a of hunting land in northern Michigan, 2 twice a year and he would raise a calf for us in his herd. Always worked out well. Have seen wet hay stacked and molded. Causing horses N cattle to get sick. My grandfather bought a colt for me, that was born the same day as I was. Had pictures of him with the colt in the back seat of his Buick. Wish I knew what happened to those. Blackie died when we were 18. Many great memories.

  33. Sissified Government motors. Build a quality product instead of reinventing yourself with a "Logo". I wonder how much was spent on this turd. And to think a bunch of yes men said " Yea we nailed it"...soooo sad.

  35. I totally agree - it's like the logo caught something and went pale. The capital letters were bold. What's with the lowercase letters? We are not bold anymore? Well said Kiwi. GM always had square logos, now they've gone to rounded edges. Not sure I understand the meaning of that. Clearly this gets further and further from the GM I once knew. Which I suspect is the point.

  37. I hear that buddy, still have those indents too. Before I built the garage and poured a cement pad in front of it. I have many LOL driveway moments, before and after. Going on 44 years I've owned this place. When did I have time to get this old??

  38. Had to pick the body back up and slid the 4x4's between the frame and body. Did all the replacing/rebuilding of metal from there. Welding was a big part of my physical therapy beginning 3 weeks after surgery.

  40. Hi last Indian, yes i had completely forgotten that! i know that all other factors are correct, like the engine is on the correct mounts, diff is at the correct angle thanks to the stock control arms and my only variable is the up down location of that trans mount, and not having another one from the donner chassis i reused the one off my bent frame. what i will do is wait, like you said till i have the front suspension completed, sheet metal on and i have the ride height correct, then i will use my digital level on the carb base to check what its at. It is a simple cross member to p

  41. Oh Cripes! I forgot about the D.R.E.A.D. Card! Detroit Rockers Engaged in the Abolition of Disco! J.J. and the Morning Crew were the best. Mike and Drew were a distant second to them IMHO.
