  1. Cowboydanny, One option you might try is Rock Valley Antique Auto Parts. I have no experience with them, but they claim to have many patterns for vintage fuel tanks and can custom make them if needed. No idea on price, but I have a hard time thinking it would be $3000. Good Luck, 31pontiac
  2. Congrats !!! Great looking Bonneville !!
  3. I found the DeSoto dash at Hershey about 17 years ago (about 3 years after I started this project). I had been looking for gauges from a ‘50’s or ‘60’s vehicle to kind of keep in the 1960’s hot rod theme. Since that time I have looked at many cars and aftermarket gauges (Moon, Stewart-Warner, Classic, Autometer, etc.) and didn’t see anything I liked better. They fit my Pontiac dashboard well, have that period hot rod vibe, and are seldom used anymore.
  4. A few more items I’ve been working on, a cover for the fuse block, a stone guard to protect the steering universals, and cut holes to to install gauges.
  5. Can’t say about tube headers, but the factory Ram Air 3 long branch manifolds from 1969 Firebirds are also listed as to fit your Catalina. They are definitely a step up from your original manifolds. Ram Air Restoration and Ames has reproductions available. Ram Air Restoration also offers a 3” diameter set that looks like the originals, which I think are 2 1/4”.
  6. The Fall Hershey flea market held the first week of October has been cancelled for 2020. I haven’t missed this event since 1973. No decision has been made on the Saturday car show yet.
  7. Welcome! Early 2nd gens are my favorite Firebirds. Looks like you have a beauty!
  8. Installed a Lokar E-brake floor mounted handle and had to design and build a console for it.
  9. 1969 428 in a 1931 Pontiac.
  10. Unfortunately, the “42nd Annual GM on Display” has been cancelled for this year due to the pandemic. We are still hoping to have our Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile, and Cadillac show at Ebersole Buick-GMC, Lebanon, PA in September. I will post more details closer to the event.
  11. Cleaned up, painted, and reassembled the 1962 fullsize Pontiac rear brakes. Got to use some paint that has been sitting in the cabinet too long.
  12. As of now, this event has not been postponed. We are all hoping that the current state of affairs will be improved by then, but if the date does change or the show is canceled I will post it on here as soon as I know.
