  1. I am not aware of any such kit, but I guess it could be possible.
  2. The blank is just a space filler, there were no extra gauges. If you didn't have the clock, you got the blank. They were usually mounted on the passenger side of the dashboard, sometimes on the glovebox lid,if there was a glovebox.
  3. Dash clocks were usually electric by the mid-'30's. Some cars had clocks in the interior rearview mirror and they were usually wind ups. Since there are no numbers on your piece, it may have been the "clock delete" blank that someone in the past added the clock mechanism to.
  4. I can narrow it down to 2 possible years, 1935 or 1936. they only used that style "Pontiac" script those 2 model years.

    Time to tackle the steering. I got a Flaming River tilt column and a 1960 Pontiac steering wheel and had to come up with a steering column drop from the dash and how to route the steering system from the floorboard to the steering box.

    Can you help identify this Pontiac

    It could absolutely be a really co0l family cruiser.

    Can you help identify this Pontiac

    Actually it is either a 1955 Chieftain 860 Series or Chieftain 870 Series 4-door station wagon. In 1955, the Safari name was only used on the upscale 2-door station wagon that used the same roofline as the Chevrolet Nomad. It wasn't until 1958 that Pontiac used the Safari name on all models of their wagons. Value is hard to judge, although wagons have had a lot more interest in recent years.

    A whole lot of Pontiac pics!

    I just use my smartphone for photos. I would run out of time for show pics with the camera ( although I must admit I still do ), and it took too much time to resize them so I could upload them. The quality has suffered slightly, but it is much more convenient for me. Your photos looked great to me!

    Very nice pics! You were moving pretty fast to get all of those shots in 2 hours! You must have taken the pictures of my '59 right after I arrived, as that was the only time I was in the car. Thanks for sharing. Hope you don't mind if I add a few of my pics.

    I was also at the Pypes show. I will be posting more pics of both shows soon.
  13. Here are the Pontiac HoF inductees.
  14. Here's a few pics from the show today (Friday). Will post more in the future ( after the Pypes show tomorrow). Disappointed no one has posted pics from the POCI convention this past week. I will let you formulate your own opinions about the OCC "GTO" bike.
