My first Pontiac was a 68 Firebird. That's the car I learned how to drive a standard on. It was originally a sprint six cylinder Three speed, but when I bought it it had a 350 in it. Being 18 years old I beat that car like you would expect and blew the engine. I replaced it with a 400 in a while later I blew the clutch. So I started to rent a two car garage and proceeded to tear The car apart to rebuild it. Well that didn't go anywhere. A few years later I had to vacate the garage And say goodbye to that car. I had no room for it but I kept the engine, the automatic transmission I was going to put in it and some other parts.
During that time I had a 71 Grand Prix type J. The car had the coldest air conditioning I've ever owned. I sold it to my brother And one night a local tow yard stole it. The SUMRCA was a mistake find. I was dropping off one of my coworker friends at his house and this car was parked down the end of a driveway face in with a for sale sign in the rear window. The sign caught my eye driving by. They wanted 2500 for it I gave them 2000. That will be 30 years ago this summer. And just like most of us I still have lots of plans for that car including putting that 400 engine in it from the Firebird. I just bought an MSD fuel injection set up for it. Got to gather more parts. Can't wait to start the project
