  1. Haha thank you! I still own 2 Chevrolets: a 1963 Corvair Spyder convertible and a 1963 Corvair Rampside. So this whole Pontiac thing is going to be new to me, especially in regard to resources, information, and finding parts! No real plans except to drive it. It has a 2bbl and I prefer 4bbls so would like to see about swapping that. Also want to update the drum brakes to have self adjusters. I think I need to ask this in another forum section, though. Other than that... I fully intend to drive this car. We drive the convertible almost every day (including today to work in the rain!). Definitely plan to use it for camping and pulling a travel trailer and so on. Not glamping!!!!
  2. Good afternoon- I just purchased my first Pontiac, a 1960 Catalina wagon. This happened after a long search for a 1959 or a 1960 Chevrolet wagon and finding out that the Chevrolets have gotten really ridiculous with their values. Don't get me wrong - I've owned a 1959 Chevrolet for the last 25 years (Nomads, El Caminos, Impala convertible, Impala coupe, and so on) and since I sold my coupe a few months ago, I felt really naked! Then the sticker shock of trying to find a 1959 or 1960 made me look at the GM sisters. Lo and behold, I found this Pontiac and I think I'm in love... ! I have noticed the similarities to the Chevrolet and the Pontiac are very close, the biggest difference being the drive train. Fortunately for me, this Catalina is mostly finished and I plan to drive the snot out of it. I know I will want to make a few changes (minor), and instead of running around and trying to figure out what works and what doesn't work, I will be coming here!! That being said, I thank you in advance for your patience and understanding of all the questions I will be throwing your way!!! Travis
