  1. I certainly hope he makes it out there too. He’s a wealth of information, for sure. Do you happen to have the Smole Signals article?
  2. 31 - yes it does belong to Dimitri Toth. I was introduced to him later in the day. Dimitri is a writer and a supporter of the new Pontiac Transportation Museum. I have his business card too. i will post some pictures of his car a little later. It’s gorgeous!.
  3. I rattled GE's cage for you. I told him he needs to contact you through Faceblob.
  4. Hi Tomy2tone. Welcome to FP. Power windows and seats would be driven off of the power/accessories fuse on the fuse block under the dash. This is either a 30 or 40 amp fuse. Check your owners manual. It should have a map of this fuse block and what amperage the fuse should be. Check your fuse, if it is bad replace it. If the fust is fine, then I suspect something else.... Now from what you described, being able to move the windows up and down and seats without the key in the ignition is a similar "problem" I had with Lucy, my '72 Lemans convertible for over 20 years. I could power down the windows and the power convertible top without the key. The car is not designed to do that - at least mine is not - and I suspect yours it not if you read the owners manual. The key is suppose to be in the run position in Lucy for the top or windows to work. So what happened to me and may have happened to you is a failed / partially failed power relay. For Lucy, the power relay for the power accessories is behind the driver's side kick panel. Mine partially failed over 20+ years ago to bypass the ignition circuit. I suspect yours did too and now the relay has failed completely. Mine failed completely 2 years ago and I could not raise/lower my windows or my top. A simple voltmeter will prove if it works. Check the body or chassis manual for the mention of a power relay that drives/supports the accessories. I knew the 'A' cars it should be behind the driver's side kick panel. This is what the power relay in Lucy looks like and probably what you may be looking for as well.
  5. A restored '59 Bonneville is a gorgeous car. Good luck in your search.
  6. A lot of header manufacturers have either retired or discontinued the 70s era large car headers from their catalogs due to a lack of demand. They aren't as possible as the F-body and A-body cars these days. You either need to call them and see if they will make you a set or you need to run a set of factory original or reproduction exhaust manifolds. A company called Ram Air Restoration makes reproduction Ram Air/HO exhaust manifolds, essentially factory headers. https://www.ramairrestoration.com/
  7. You were permitted by the little woman to go play with the Challenger? Be still my beating heart ! Or are you starting to get into a mad thrash since Cars and Cones is less than 2 weeks away? I still can't believe you are coming to Michigan!
  8. That's the great thing about this forum. Not all of us know everything about every ride or every nut and bolt. We all chip in with collective knowledge and experiences. Let us know what you end up deciding to do, oh, and pictures please!
  9. Casting number 521571 should be the number for a 1956 Pontiac 4-bbl intake off of a 316 Pontiac V8. The 287, 316, 347, and 370 were the part of the Strato Streak V8 engines. It should fit your 287. The casting number is usually near the #1 cylinder intake runner - by the thermostat.
  10. Always happy to. It was easy....I was the club photographer for the show anyway.
  11. Here are more photos from the Dust Off. Here is the typical post-show group photo. L-R - JUSTA66, JUSTAG6, ENVY, LUCY I am very excited to show off some new bling on Lucy during the show. This new bling is courtesy of Mr. Last Indian and his mad fab skills. I have a new "Jury" grille badge and I've added a new arrowhead/indian head next to my Pontiac. They both make the front end really pop. I cannot thank Last Indian enough for everything he sent me. Now that I've unveiled the bling I will share the rest in another thread. Winner of the Survivor Class Award - an unrestored yet drivable 1928 Pontiac - complete with a rumble seat I thought this was prettiest car at the show - a red, perfectly straight '59 Bonneville convertible with a triple color interior A pair of nice G8s How about some Solstices? This Solstice belongs to Marge Sawruk - the late John Sawruk's wife. She bought it from current POCI President Larry Crider. I am going to have funny teasing Larry about this. A '74 Ventura Sprint ! Time for G6s This one is owned by JUSTA's daughter -- JUSTAG6! Way to go girl!
  12. Okay - here are some photos I took during this weekend's Dust Off. I will be adding more photos through out the day. The weather was absolutely perfect. Sunny, warm but not hot. A little breezy, it was breezy enough to keep knocking over JUSTA's 303+ display bottles!!! LOL! Indyman Joe came. We are not sure if he washed his car or not. It's hard to tell with his car either way. Funny thing is notallthere was so excited he forget to check out Joe's rear end! Starting in the swap meeting area: How about your basic Pontiac Beaumont Acadian El Camino????? Which were never made - but it is still cool to look at. Here is an uber-rare piece, I wish I had brought my checkbook with me. A Mickey Thompson Cross Ram intake manifold for an early 389. This one is for Pro. A '84 Safari wagon.....with a LS1 in it! A first-gen 1974 Grand Am A gorgeous resto-mod Star Chief. I love the interior. Beautiful '38 Pontiac street rod. Newer GTOs A kangaroo and a joey too! Nice touch. Goats - we got 'em! Fieros - Check....if you look hard you maybe able to see Envy, Mrs. Notallthere's pride and joy. Hint - it's the silver one at the very end. Trans Ams, Formulas, and one even one Firehawk!!!
  13. Welcome to FP. I love your Goat!
