    My 66 GTO full body off resto by my family and me, only the paint was by others, it runs a 461 Butler Kit, a Doug Nash 4+1 and a 9" Diff, converted to Right Hand Drive sometime in the 60's for Australian conditions.

    Wanted to take time out of my day and thank all Veterans. Keeping us safe and fighting for our rights is highly understated and I appreciate all your sacrifices. This Veteran’s Day hits a little hard, as last weekend we lost the most honorable and caring individual I knew, who was also a WWII Navy Vet and my grandpa. Up till the day he died, he was all about service to his country, family and others. Truly the embodiment of what made/makes this country great 🇺🇸 .

    I'm taken aback by so many photos submitted with missing/cut off front or rear bumpers? Big shade spots from overhead trees in the middle of the cars? Trees and power poles growing out of the roofs of cars? C'mon guys, does anyone look thru the viewfinder before snapping the photo? Not trying to be harsh here but dang Cleetus! Visualize the photo as you want it to appear in the calendar. Just sayin'. Jim, maybe before next years calendar we can have a tutorial posted on Taking Car Photos 101?

    I think this would look great on a calendar! Here's my 1971 Lemans, numbers matching 350/TH350 in Quezal Gold. 49,000 original miles. Repainted once in the original color, upgraded with a 4 barrel from the stock 2 barrel. Original bench seat was swapped with buckets and a console, and the interior was redone to factory specs. Dual exhaust, power steering, power brakes, factory air, factory front disk brakes, this car has it all and is a great driver!

    I went to the Pypes Open House Car Show in Hatfield PA today (6/30). The highlight of the show (as far as I'm concerned) was the inaugural unveiling of the Pontiac Hall of Fame. There was to be a banquet and induction ceremony later in the evening at the GTOAA convention down the road, but this the first time the public has seen it. I couldn't get a picture of the whole monument because of all the folks there, but I think you can piece it together from the pictures and see the initial 10 hall of famers. Future Pontiac HOF Milt Schornack was there also.

    I'm not a fan, especially in a vehicle that has no controls for a human to take over in the event of an emergency. So a controless vehicle condemns its occupants to whatever unanticipated fate it may (unfortunately) encounter. The NHTSA would have to prove that self-driving vehicles are significantly (statistically-speaking) more safe than human-driven vehicles. I doubt there is enough data samples, particular on populated roads for that. Nor is anyone terrible anxious to let them out on public streets either - hence the dilemma. I doubt anyone is willing to take it on faith either just to let them out on the roads either (TRUST ME!). Finally who does my family sue when such a vehicle gets in an accident? Who's liable? The company that managed the vehicle? The manufacturer of the vehicle? The autonomous software development company? Or Yes All of the Above Please? WIth a human driver, there is an implied single-point of fault.

    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 ☃️ ! )

    I suspect so. I also know that they buy and rebuild/restore older, original Trans Ams as well. I'm hoping it is the best of both worlds. I mean who wouldn't want a 1,000 HP Trans Am - even if it was based on the 5th-gen Camaro? I'd still drive it like I stole it.

    We are a little over 2 1/2 weeks away from one of the biggest car events in Michigan - perhaps in the country. The third Saturday in August every year is the Woodward Dream Cruise. A 16-mile long rolling cruise from Pontiac Michigan (on the north side) to Ferndale Michigan (on the south side at 8 Mile Road - just before the State Fairgrounds and the Detroit city limits). Some media experts report this one day event brings in over 60,000 cars and trucks and 2 million spectators. The Michigan Widetrackers will once again be parking on Woodward, across from the train station on the south bound Woodward loop (a.k.a Widetrack Boulevard). You will find JUSTA6, notallthere, and I parked there. So if you are cruising Woodward, be sure to stop by and say "Hi". Indyman Joe will be probably be cruising around as well, disturbing the peace as usual - its wwhat he does well! http://www.woodwarddreamcruise.com/

    Thanks Gang, Shes been giving me hell this season, but as they say Never Give Up! The paint I proudly admit is 23 years old this year. Sam Wilson & Sons Restoration 1995. I don't do paint but handle all mechanical. Recently the top end was in need of some attention and turned into a cluster *uck, but overcame those issues. Really can't complain as its been 16 years since I blew a cam 😮 so again feel I got my moneys worth 😉 Now I'm dealing with electrical issues, nothing major just need to install a new starting/Ignition harness on the engine as my 23 year old M&H has said it's had enough. If I didn't drive the sh!t out of her I would be pissed, Anyhow THANKS to all who voted. It always fun to get votes from my peers and go against some great Pontiac iron. Cheers🍻

    Well finally I got to go back to the Indian to do some work, do with out of retirement work! decided to take The Indian down even further since this year looks to be shot in the ass for getting it out! Started taking the body armor off the cleanup the underneath structure on the doors. Not much there as it turns out, all pretty clean after 18 years, but still a once over is ok! Got the splitter on as well, but still need to finish the one hood insert and the two front cover side vent inserts.

    Trans Ams became very popular 75-76 and I thought they were so great looking. Now people and television look down on them as a car that southern white trash drives. I knew better, the handling was already there and all that was needed was modifying the engine. I owned a 69 GTO first (never did get it to run), then a 75 Grand Prix (brother wrecked it), a 75 Trans Am next (holes in the hood so big you could change the oil without popping the hood open) A teenage girl on downers ran a stop sign and took that one out, then a 78 T/A next with nitrous, then a 76 50th Anniversary Edition T/A (kick myself in the butt for selling that one) then family came along and had to get vans and the like. When my wife left me and the kids I was ready to get back into a project car but I did not want the Trans Am/Camaro/Corvette everyone else had at the local car shows so I went looking and found a 73 Grand Am. I have been working on that for several years now. When I do get it fixed up and go to a show I will probably be the only one there. Did not know it then but when I bought it and drove it home ($3800 with current license and inspection) the motor had been went through and was a unit out of a 74 T/A 4 speed car. I don't know what type of cam is in the car but it is far from stock. The exhaust was a 2.5" dual system and the previous owner had put a 850 CFM Holley on it (way too much carb for the motor) I replaced that with a Edelbrock 1401 and then later a street demon carb. Now It is going through mods for a Fitech fuel injection system. The rear end was changed from a 3.08 peg leg to a 3.73 positraction unit from an 85 Monte SS. Turbo 400 Trans was swapped for a 2004R OD unit from a 85 Monte SS as well. The 4x-3H heads have been milled down (found that out when trying to fit the Performer RPM manifold). Rebuilt the front end and new springs and KYB shocks all around. I pulled off the headers as well as I have already been through exhaust gasket changing 101, 102, 103, Etc. and have a set of Ram Air Restorations RAIII exhaust manifolds installed now. the interior has my attention now as I have new seat covers and carpet (came with the car) a Just Dashes restored dash, and the instrument cluster with a tachometer instead of the clock. One thing you learn with a rare car is that you have to jump on parts when they become available, it might be years before you see that part again. The dash was purchased spur of the moment ebay as was the T/A steering wheel, front bumper, rear tail lights, and automatic shifting console. I had to drive from League City, Tx all the way to OMG Denton, Tx just to spend $300 on a bumper only to throw the bumper away because all I needed was the rubber impact strip for the rear bumper. well enough for now, talk to everyone later.

    For anyone interested in the Pontiac's History The excerpt 31 posted is from (IMHO) the BEST book written on the subject. Pontiac The Complete History by Thomas E. Bonsall. The first edition published in 1979 then a second in 1985/86 This is an Excellent book and is very complete. Another worthwhile book is 75 Years of Pontiac by John Gunnell while not as detailed with the early stuff it too is a great read. Cheers!
