  1. Frosty, I don't know if you heard this already, but I recently read on the PY forum that 2 of the PPA HoF names are John DeLorean and Jim Wangers. Sorry if it is old news.
  2. I will be at the Pypes show (have been to every one so far) on Saturday. And I am planning to get to the GTOAA Nats on Friday. I will try to get you that info.
  3. Pypes Exhaust / Max Performance Car Show Is June 29-30 in Hatfield PA just 20 minutes away from the GTOAA National convention in Valley Forge. Registration and info at www.pypesexhaust.com/carshow

    Did Pontiac Ever Build a Truck?

    Back to the subject of Pontiac trucks, here's an interesting picture of a local butcher shop's 3 Pontiac panel delivery trucks ( 1 '35 and 2 '36's ). Don't know anymore about them, but the delivery bodies look very much like the body on the '27. The local Pontiac dealership was only 1/2 mile away from the butcher.

    Let's not forget these 3, my favorite of which is the Crestline "75 Years of Pontiac Oakland ".

    Did Pontiac Ever Build a Truck?

    Pontiac did sell trucks in the U.S.A. beginning late in 1926 as 1927 models. They offered the panel delivery and the screen -type delivery. After that, GMC took over selling the very same truck with the same Pontiac engines, but with a GMC grille. It was called the GMC T-11. They also made ( in the U.S.) sedan deliveries from 1949 through 1953.
  8. We also had a 1984 6000STE. It was our first new car. Two-tone blue with a blue cloth interior. It was a major leap for me to have a car with no points, a digital dash, and (how did they get away with this?) factory fog lights! 🤔 Until then, the newest car I had ever owned was a 1970 Formula 400 Firebird.

    Show us your Pontiac Emblem!

    1931 radiator shell badge and a 1960 badge from the fuel door, each style was used one year only.

    Thanks Frosty. Not everyone is aware of what it takes to build a car like this, so I thought I would show just some of the modifications that we have done without going into too much detail and boring people. Nice to hear from those who appreciate this thread.

    Back to the seats. Looking to create a little more head and leg room, I searched for an alternative to the MG Midget seats I had., and came up with a pair of Austin-Healey 3000 bucket seats. Together with some modified Corvette C3 seat adjusters I was able to create a little extra space in both directions. Along with the seats, I installed a much modified '65 Tempest/ LeMans/ GTO 2-speed automatic shifter mated to the Turbo 350 trans with a conversion from Shiftworks ( before and after pics).

    Replacing the wood in the doors was the next thing we addressed, and getting them to fit in their opening after the chop proved to be a real challenge. it required removing a triangular piece of the door skin and a lot of fine tuning.
