  3. I was lucky enough,a few years ago to find a 1969 trans am in a garage for over 30 years . The car is all original. Original paint, original drivetrain with ram air III 400, original turbo 400 trans, original 3.55 rear end, perfect original blue interior with original rug and headliner. The car was one owner and came with all books, invoice, down payment receipt, protect o plate, every registration from new, including original from dealer, and log of every oil change with mileage from new. The paint is definitely not perfect but it’s original .

  4. Thought I would start this thread for the folks out there in Forever Pontiac Land who build models. We all love pictures here at FP, so post 'em if you build 'em! Two years ago I got back into making models after a 40 year hiatus. I'm not very fast and am easily distracted, so I have only built four models in two years, lol. This is my latest build... It is a Cessna A-37B Dragonfly from the Vietnam war. It is painted in the colors and markings of a VNAF Dragonfly of the 520th fighter squadron at Binh Thuy during 1970.

  5. Yeah JustA, baiting Kiwis with beer is like shootin' fish in a barrel. In fact, Aussies are quite fond of a brewskie here and there. I'll bet when Kiwis1 & 2 and myself rock up to Michigan, baiting you guys with the promise of beers will work a treat, too. It was Benjamin Franklin who apparently quoted that "beer is proof that God loves us." For someone who liked to bait lightning with a kite, the man sounded reasonably sane.

  6. Well the 32nd annual Dustoff is in the books for another year. Weather held off, but HOT sticky, humid. Up til last night weatherman was sayin Thunderstorms by 2pm. They LIED as usual. I took Justa 66, JustaG6, Frosty, IndymanJoe, Tim Crofoot all FP members. Was really nice to see Tim as he lives over 2hrs away. JustaG6 and Frosty took awards. Indy and Tim had to leave a lil early and missed our usual group photo. Missing Mr and Mrs Notallthere from our group this year again. Attendance was waaay down, mostly to the weathermans forcast, I think. Spectator attendance was way down as well. We had maybe a third of the usual swap meet vendors. Sorry Kiwi and Fritzy didn't find what you were looking for. Big Chris...saw no loose window trim to get you an answer. Frosty was the club photographer so I'll post a couple teasers til he can fill in the gaps with info on attendance and his pic's.

  7. OKay folks - here are some of my photos from the show. Here is Marge Sawruk's Solstice - Marge is the widow of the late Pontiac historian John Sawruk. Unrestores 55 GMC pickup and GMC Suburban A couple of Oldsmobiles - a stock 88 and a custom Firehawl #308 JUSTA's GTO Indyman Joe showed up after work First time I've ever seen an Oakland radiator grille shell in a swap meet before. The Pontiac Transportation Museum showed up with three cars: a '73 GTO, a '67 GTO, and a LS-7-powered Solstice This Mallett conversion is apparently still available today. that you could've ordered from the local Pontiac dealer. This particular Solstice was ordered from a local Detroit-area dealer - Art Moran. How about a Royal Bobcat? Dennis Koss' car is gorgeous.

  12. It can be hard to ask for help but it is soothing to know it's there if and when you need it. I know from personal experience... In 2010, at the POCI Convention in Charleston WV, I nearly died. I unknowingly ruptured my colon and walked around for 4 days poisoning myself. I nearly died of sepsis. I spent a month in ICU, 21 days in a medically induced coma. My kidneys came close to shutting down. The Pontiac and classic car communities in Charleston rallied around me and my family - for which I am eternally grateful. Things like this change you forever, in ways you cannot predict or expect. I made a new family in West Virginia after that. I've been closer to them than I think I would have otherwise. There is almost nothing I won't do for them in kind. So when I go back to Charleston, I don't just go for the car show. I go back to see my WV family. So embrace this Pontiac family you have 360.....we are part of your family too brother. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

  14. 360 my friend my heart breaks for you! Life can be very unfair for no obvious reason! But I know you will take those lemons and make the best lemon aid anyone has ever tasted! And as Justa6 our buddy said, lean on us whatever you need Justa ask! There are many things that pull us together! God, country, brotherhood! Always in my prayers Randy!

  19. No! I'll never give up singing Born To Be Alive! That normally gets rid of the women, leaving just beer and some really bad dance moves - a classic combination.

  29. It could be an urban myth. I forget how I found it - I've spent a lot of time at work lately, and I spend a lot of THAT time sitting still in a coach and idling, so Google got a workout. I'll check my kit when I get home. If I have one of those doovers in my carb, I'll probably remove it. That way, when it runs like a bucket of crap, I can then put it back in.

  39. New fuel sender arrived today i bought this locally as the price was right ... which really doesn’t happen !! if I got this off Ames it would have been way dearer, plus then air freight. it does have the return line which i dont need, so a 1/4 inch plug will fix that.

  40. I will second Justa's sentiments. You have friends here in Michigan for sure buddy. I would have loved to catch up with you in Ohio but my family has vacation plans that conflict with it. I do hope our paths are able to cross in the near future though.

  42. Kiwi, stratman. Thank you for your support and kind words. I will be a diehard Poncho fan until the day that I die and hopefully in another lifetime as well. This matter won’t defeat me it will only define me. I am blessed to be alive and have a group to be a part of like Forever Pontiac.

  45. Chris - I may defer to Justa on this but I believe there are some Phillips screws underneath the rubber that retain the window felt and the chrome trim. I may be wrong but I suspect that is what is happening.
