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!!!
