  1. My SUMRCA , a 1972 Lemans Sport, needs new front springs and shocks. I was wondering if any of you have any experience with front coil overs. One of the main attractions to them is the ride height adjustability. Not having to worry about buying a set of springs and find out they aren’t what you really like. The rear and could use a new set of shocks as well. If I happen to work an extra two shifts at work and could afford a rear set of coil overs that could be an option for the rear as well. So any information any of you have on this good or bad experiences would be helpful. Thank you.

  3. So I put a new set of plugs in the SUMRCA and took it for a ride. Beautiful day with a nice sunset too. Gonna shine it up for a show in May. Here comes the season.
  4. You know an all Pontiac calendar would be cool. One of these years maybe I will be more on the ball and submit a Nomination
  5. I went up to Ames Performance in New Hampshire three days ago and spent a few hundred on parts to chip away at the list. I’m looking forward to getting under the hood and under the car. I’ve got my first car show this year in Needham mass on May 20. I hope the weather cooperates.
  6. Ha ha no. Life got in the way
  7. 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
  8. I'm headed to S. Carolina March 14. The Run to the Sun car show is in Myrtle Beach on the 15th 16th and 17th. It's their 30th anniversary. I've never been there but my buddy has and has sent me videos and pictures from there. There is supposed to be over 3000 cars. I just wish I could drive my own car down there for the time. Those are the things I want to be able to do when I retire. I'm looking forward to six days away.
  9. It's 72° now in the Boston area. I may take the car out
  10. Hi my name is Joe. I own a 1972 Pontiac Lemans convertible.Hi my name is Joe. I own a 1972 Pontiac Lemans convertible. I live in the north east so I don't get to drive it as much as I would like, but when I do it's very enjoyable. I have owned it since 1988. I also drive a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT P as my daily driver. I have owned that for the last 14 years.
