  1. You may have a unicorn there, with the two-tone paint trim option and monotone paint.
  2. Frosty... I’d love to meet up with all y’all MI FP friends some day.
  3. I would love to experience this event someday. Thank you for posting all these great pictures, JUSTA!
  4. Congratulations Frosty.... I know it will be a first class garage when you are done,
  5. Thanks Kiwi! It was very laid back, lots of folks stopped by and asked me about the TA, It was nice to get out and socialize and talk to people you have never met or will see again... all different ages, colors, ethnicity, etc. Just good on good, far different than what the news would have you believe. AS far as the camera, I brought my good old Sony a6000 with my 18-105mm zoom lens. It is my go to combo for events like car shows.
  6. We like pictures at FP. I took my 1981 TA "Raven" to our first car show this summer. Seems like something has come up every weekend this summer and haven't been able to attend any shows. This is a show was in Middletown VA . They have it once a year, main street is closed from one end of town to the other, and the show cars are parked on both sides of the street... had to be over 200 cars. Anyway... I took a ton of pictures and created a slide show of many of the cars. Raven is the first car, then all the Pontiacs, then the rest in no particular order. btw... The white 1970 GTO Judge had a twin turbo RA V motor. I wasn't able to talk to the owner, but at the very least they are RA V heads, you can tell by the location of the exhaust ports in the picture of the engine. https://app.photobucket.com/u/us_strat/a/2071723f-f20a-4730-9740-fb6097f5b8ac?mode=slideshow
  7. I am so sorry, my prayers go out to you.
  8. Thought I would start this thread for the folks out there in Forever Pontiac Land who build models. We all love pictures here at FP, so post 'em if you build 'em! Two years ago I got back into making models after a 40 year hiatus. I'm not very fast and am easily distracted, so I have only built four models in two years, lol. This is my latest build... It is a Cessna A-37B Dragonfly from the Vietnam war. It is painted in the colors and markings of a VNAF Dragonfly of the 520th fighter squadron at Binh Thuy during 1970.
  9. Different folks. I liked the products I got in Charleston, but Chemical Guys stuff seems a lot better to me.
  10. Got a hole in the radiator. It is an unknown aftermarket aluminum radiator (was in it when I bought it), it took awhile to find someone who could weld it. Got her back last week, so far so good.
  11. Guess I shouldn't complain... I could be in Florida!
  12. Yesterday (Sunday) I gave my '81 TA (Raven) a wash, claybar, and wax. I was going to do more, but I was dyin' out there! Here in Virginia it has gone from beautiful spring, low humidity, upper 60s - lower 70s... straight to swamp ass summer overnight. Anyway.... I'm happy with how she turned out
  13. Thanks JUSTA! I am doing well, but my TA not so well, been in and out of the shop. But life is good for me right now, hopefully I will pop in on FP more often.
  14. I recently built built this Star Trek Enterprise model from the original series. Wanted to take some pictures to make it look like it's in outer space somewhere... these two photos turned out not too bad.
  15. In addition to decoding your data plate, you should send your VIN to PHS Services to get a copy of the original invoice to see exactly what options were on your GTO when it left the factory. Money well spent. http://www.phs-online.com/services.htm
  16. Adobe Lightroom. It is part of Adobe Creative Cloud subscription that also includes Photoshop. The subscription is about $10 a month.
  17. There are two stamp pads on the front of the engine block. On one side you have a nine digit number that starts with a "2" (for Pontiac), "8" (for 1968), "R" (for Arlington TX plant) with the remaining six digits being the last six numbers of the cars VIN. This is a pic from my late great 1968 GTO... You can see they match the last eight numbers of the VIN (highlighted in yellow)... The pad on the other side of the front of the block has the engine production number and a two letter code that identifies the engine and the transmission (manual or automatic). Mine was a "WS" code for 400 HO/manual...
  18. Had fun with your picture, Frosty...
  19. Nice looking TA!!! Glad you got one after all those years! I'm a big 2nd gen TA fan also, have an '81.
