  1. Frosty, It is good to hear from you! I have ben wondering how you were doing. I would love to have you give your friend my information. I have read a few articles and some counter dick each other. Also, we made the move and are up on Rainbow Lake now. I have 2 3 car garages and the lower garage is like a bunker. The only thing not cement is the doors. It is taking some time to get it set up, but you should come up and see it. I hope to start working on the Catalina in late February of early March. I have had all the parts since last year, but with the move all I got done was a new interior in the 67 vette and fixing a very small tear on the drivers seat on the Catalina. I think you would like the place and if you come back in the summer we can go for a boat ride, or jet skis if you perfer. Thank you for getting back with me! God bless! Ted Feight 517 803-9260
  2. 64 kiwi boni Thank you! I will try and do that. I am still not great at getting around on this website, but learning. We just moved and I am setting up the lower garage, called the bunker, for working on the toys. It should be pretty cool and allow me to keep up. God bless! Ted

  4. I am just starting to think about this, but would like your input. I would like to learn the good, the bad and the ugly about changing over to 8 lug nut wheels on my 66 Catalina. It probably won't be this year, but I would like to do this unless you teach me better. I have seen the adapters and wheels converted to normal drums, but I am pretty green here. I am open to suggestions and learning.
  5. These all seem like great ideas. I have always used my leaf blower, professional grade. Great to hear from you all. God bless! Ted
  6. Thank you again! That is a good idea. I have to wash the engine on the Catalina and will use the air pressure on that. Good bless! Ted
  7. Thank you Justa6. I was worried about rust? God bless! Ted Feight
  8. We moved into a new home in the country in September. Life out here is a little different than the city. Thus my questions: Should I worry about washing my cars with water softener salt water? The water is currently to salty tasting. Thank you in advance! God bless! Ted Feight
  9. I switched my 67 Corvette over to normal oil filters with Summit's Help, 800 230-3030. Summit also has the canister filter you are looking for. God bless and good luck with your new Toy!
  10. This is its brother, a 66 Catalina I call Barry! you have a beautiful car. I hope to see it up close some day.
  11. In 1967, I was driving a 1966 Catalina Convertible. I came home to Michigan, from working in Chicago, to find a draft notice to report the next day. I had to give the car back to the dealer; which you could do back in that period of time. After an all expense paid trip to Vietnam, I came home and bought a 1969 Camaro. It was a great car, but I always missed my Catalina. A few years ago I was travelingdown M-55 between Houghton Lake and Lake City and saw the nose of a 1966 Catalina poking out of a small garage. After finishing my business in Lake City I stopped and talked to the owner, Barry Synder. We talked about cars, clocks and his working at the Pontiac factory. I told him that I would like to buy the car if he ever sold it. I stopped a few more times when I was in the area . He was a very nice gentleman. Last fall his daughter called to tell me he had died. He left her a note asking her to give me the first rights to buy the Catalina, if she sold it. Barry had set the price. I drove over to look at it and bought it the next week. I named the car Barry.
  12. Thank you! It is a very friendly informative group of people! God bless! Ted
  13. In 1967 I had a 1966 Pontiac Catalina Convertible, silver with a black top. I came home from working in Chicago for 3 months to find a draft notice to report the next day. I had to give the car back to the dealer, which was allowed in that day. After an all expense paid trip to the far east I came home and bought a 69 Camaro. I wanted a 67 Vette, but was talked out of it. I finally bought the 67 Vette in 1984, but never found a 66 Catalina that I liked. Then while traveling to see a client on M-55 I saw the nose of a Catalina sticking out of a small garage. After seeing the client in Lake City I stopped at the house with the Catalina Convertible and talked for hours with the owner. He was an older man who did not get a lot of visitors. We talked about the car, his clocks, watches and life. I told him if he ever wanted to sell the car I would like first rights. I stopped and talked to him when I was going through from time to time. Then last fall his daughter called and said her Father (Barry Snyder) had dies. Did I remember him. I told her yes and I was very sorry to hear he died. She said he left a note telling her that she should give me first chance to buy the car and he had set the price. I drove over that week and looked it over. The price was fair, not high or low. So I came back the next week and picked it up. I named the car Barry. From what I can tell it had set in the garage for the last 10 years. Before that Barry basically loved taking it to shows. With the help of Frosty and a few of you on the forum I am making the car my own, by making a few needed changes. Hopefully, I will start showing the car in the early part of the summer. God Bless!
  14. Frosty, Thank you! I would like to get on Jon's list. Please private message me his email. I am putting the Widetrack's Dustoff meet on my calendar. We had a wonderful Christmas Thank You! I hope you also had a wonderful Christmas surrounded by lots of family and friends1 God bless! Ted
