  1. Thanks everybody. Not sure why I kept saying alternator. Yes, I meant the starter. The car is 100% stock and is a column shift automatic. Sounds like I was on the right track with the starter. Thanks for everyone’s input! I love driving my Bonny but it gets frustrating and embarrassing when I need to sit for an extended period of time for it to start again. One last question on the same vehicle. Wipers aren’t working. Fuse is good and switch has been replaced. Anybody know of a place to source a wiper motor? I have looked high and low and have only found one online through the auction site that starts with an E for big money. It’s a two speed motor with three connections.
  2. I have been having an issue with my 64 Bonneville Vista. It will start right up and run just fine but as soon as it gets to operating temperature it will shut off if I put it in reverse. Once it dies I can't get it to even turn over or click. I know the proximity of the alternator to the exhaust manifold heats the alternator up really fast and it needs to cool off before it will start again, but is the issue with it cutting out in reverse a separate issue? I bought a heat shield to put on the alternator and if that doesn't solve the problem with the nonstart, I might just end up going with a mini-starter. Any help or suggestions about the stalling in reverse would be helpful. Thanks in advance
  3. I'm picking the car up on Wednesday. I'll get back to you with the specifics. Thanks for the reply
  4. I'll see if I can add more. Most of my files are too large
  5. Wanted to say hello to all the fellow Pontiac enthusiasts. I recently purchased a 1964 Bonneville Vista. The hope is to make a few upgrades to brakes and suspension in preparation for towing my 1964 Airstream Safari. I was hoping to find anyone that would have any information about the towing capacity of the Bonneville. It has the stock 389, 2 barrel with the Hydromatic transmission. Also, does anyone have any experience with adding a hitch receiver and which brand/manufacturer may be best. Appreciate any and all assistance.
