    This is 1 of 57 built in 1992 COPO (verified by PMD), with a 4 cam 3.4L Chevrolet/ M284 West German Getrag 5 speed floor shift transmission ( same drivetrain as Lumina Z34 Coupe ). The sheetmetal is 100% original and is completely straight, never been hit or repaired. Hood louvers from period-correct GTP Coupe, fully functional. Interior is all original except for a steering wheel wrap, shift knob, pedals and dash tach. The car has every possible option except the HUD. Front suspension and steering rack rebuilt, new struts in rear, urethane bushings on stabilizer bars, front lowering springs and Helwig rear stabilizer bar; third alternator and clutch, second power steering and water pump. No restoration has ever been performed except for paint, this a 27 year old original survivor, second owner, since 3Dec 1997. Engine is chipped, K&N filter on hogged out intake box, and Flowmaster exhaust, 221WHP on WinJet dyno on Sunoco Racing gas.

    The headliner is in. Took about 10 hours messing around with it to get it to look decent.

    This is our 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Sport Coupe. It has power steering, power brakes, power windows, power bench seat, power antenna, Wonderbar radio, Tri-Power, and Foxcraft fenderskirts. The color is Castle Blue with a tri-color blue interior. We bought the car in 1977 and have had it 42 years this month.

    Not the best photo of my GTO, but considering the road sign and direction I saw when out cruising, I couldn't resist. 69 GTO, 100% built by yours truly. Original engine, now stroked to 461 inches with lots of "good stuff" inside. Moser 9-inch, 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes, Spohn Engineering suspension. It's an 11-second car at the track.

    1970 Lemans Sport, that I purchased 4 years ago. This car is optioned with a factory 400, 4-barrel carb, dual exhaust, Turbo 400 trans, floor shift center console, posi-traction 3.08 rear end, Rally 2 rims, power steering, front power disc brakes. It is a true survivor/driver with 75,000 original miles. Bought in WI, and has stayed in WI. I have all of the original paperwork, protecto plate, hand written option checklist and car trade in (66 Pontiac). I will never make this a trailer queen or repaint it, 95% original.

    Yeah, I know, I haven't been around in a while... but it wouldn't hurt to try to put my '93 Quad 4 High Output Grand Am GT Sedan in the mix. Yes, this makes the second of 719 total that remain, and this one is just waiting for a clutch. I drove it home from Philly to Asheville about three months ago 🙃

    Yep the first Bandit Run started out by re-creating the movies run from Texarkana TX to Atlanta. One year they did Atlanta to Boston (for the clam chowder of course). They have gone all over since. http://thebanditrun.com/

    Try something like the Moroso Mag-Tune spark plug wire set from Summit Racing. It will fit SBC, Olds and Pontiac V8s for HEI. Now I am assuming that MSD and GM HEI male terminals are the same. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/mor-9075m/overview/make/pontiac

    Hello everyone, I am new, and tend to have a hard time navigating through the internet. So please bare with me. Like a lot of people my age, I fell in love with the Trans Am, on the movies, Smoky and the Bandit. I am the second owner of a 2001 Trans Am. it was a daily driver from 2004 till 2011. It was freed up beat up pretty bad, but it was a project car for me and my 2 sons. We mainly worked on the motor, air intake, exhaust, fuel delivery, and professional running. In 2016 The project car got put on hold, along with my marriage. Here is to new beginnings for hotrods and relationships. I have a new relationship with a girl that loves hot rods!

    The 72 Ventura is essentially a Chevy Nova (a.k.a a GM X-body) in Pontiac clothing. The Chevy Nova and Camaro/Firebird are sub-frame cars like your Ventura. There should be a plethora of parts for those 2 cars. I would start by looking at what Classic Industries has to over in their Nova line of parts. Don't forget that NOVA (in those days) use to stand for Nova (Chevrolet), Omega (Olds), Ventura (Pontiac), and Apollo (Buick). https://www.classicindustries.com/shop/1972/chevrolet/nova/parts/suspension/front-suspension/

    At the bottom area of the front cover there is a lot of work to be done. Other than the 6 push pin fasteners on the top side of the lower air inlets, there are no other retaining fasteners except at the inner fenders. Since there is really no convenient way to use any other type of hardware in place of those 6 push pins, due to the hole size in both the cover and the lower air dam, I decided to go an other way. I also feel that this choice works better in helping to tie the entire front nose area together better, this includes, reinforcing the lower air dam, a bit of a modification to the Inner fenders and front cover! So what I did was this; first I cut an 1/8” piece of aluminum to fit the back part of the lower air dam to take the warpage out of it that occurs over time due to a poor design, heat and the thickness of the plastic. I contour the ends of the aluminum plate to match the air dam and attach it using 3/16 aluminum pop rivets. This is a picture from a new front cover I’m working on for an other project, but you can see how large the push pin holes are and the holes in the lower air dam that mates to it are just as large. Below is a picture of the lower air dam that has been reinforced with the aluminum plate. This stiffens and straightens the defector portion of the lower air dam making it more effective at its function. I will update with more info soon.

    I went with the wife last night to go to a used car dealership east of Derroit. It was an expensive evening. We came home with a 2007 Hummer H3 H3X with 60k miles, sunroof, I-5, leather seats. The red/orange hooks will be painted black come spring. So if you are keeping score at home, that means we now have 2 Pontiacs (Lucy and Black Beauty), 2 Chevrolets (Traverse and Colorado), 2 Hummers (a 2006 base and a 2007 H3X), and 1 Buick (the Roadmonster) for 3 drivers in the house hold, and not enough garage space for all of them either. I now have "his and hers Hummers", and I am not the "his". Dang it! BTW - both Hummers are white with black interiors. The 2006 has aluminium wheels while the 2007 has the black wheels. The 2006 has a chrome grille, the 2007 is painted white (body color) and has the brush guard. I suspect we will have side-by-side photos by the weekend. I wonder if I can find a rust free, low mileage H3 Alpha? Hmmm.
