  1. PLEASE STAND BY... ...While we Inspect, Clean & Adjust our Brakes... ...You may now resume regular driving, Funny how the simplest of task can burn up a whole afternoon😉
  2. LOTS OF OFFERINGS OUT THERE, PICK YOUR POISON 😃 top 4 listing on a quick search. Cheers. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/?yearFacet=1959&adtypeFacet=Vehicles for Sale&makeFacet=Pontiac https://classiccars.com/listings/find/1959/pontiac https://classics.autotrader.com/classic-cars-for-sale/1959-pontiac-bonneville-for-sale https://cars.trovit.com/used-cars/1959-pontiac
  3. WELCOME! That is a great choice, First Year of the WIDE TRACK PONTIAC's. They are huge cars and very hard to find parts for. My friend had a stunning all original and it was amazing. Best of luck with your quest. Cheers.
  4. Vin, Look for a 1970 Fisher Body Manual this will have a section on Folding Tops with a lot of Trouble shooting info. Cheers.
  5. WELCOME ABOARD. That is a sweet looking '70!
  6. Jack #3 is commonly only found in '66 A-Bodies built in the FREMONT Plant. This one is OE and still resides in an un-restored GTO.
  7. Frosty, The Bumper jacks for '66 came in 3 known flavors. Looking at the 2nd too last pic note the bottom 4" on my OE lug wrench, that is where I sprayed on some of the new paint to compare against the OE. And IMO the color is NUTS ON as they say. The last pic looks lighter due to flash, looks better in person.
  8. Been slowing freshening up for Gettysburg and picking off my list I decided to freshen up the Ol Trunk that was looking very well used, As it Should This came about after securing a more age appropriate storage case for some of my tools. Also over a several month period I was able to collected enough of the correct plastic safety cap nuts for the emblem pins that were install by the factory originally. These little SOB's are a one year only size for the '66 Lemans quarter letters. I lost track on how many I bought off line to find decent ones to use. Now on to the next list item...
  9. IIRC should be an miniature #68
  10. I may not be on the right track but it sounds like your looking for the seal and/or gasket that goes between the quarter panel and quarter panel "extension" IIRC there should be a thin seal between them but not 100% sure of this and if any of the big suppliers offer them. If this is what your after and you fall short of locating a set, 3M strip caulk would be a very good option to seal these parts. Cheers
  11. We had a fair numbers of Pontiac's on hand at the cruise and one across the way caught my eye, Thought you guys would get a kick out of this El' Pontolet or El Ponino 😉 It was a very well put together car with Front Clip. Drive-line & Interior. He was still working on some details but IMO it was well done. Cheers
  12. That was a standard issue 1965 Michigan Licence Plate. IIRC the "GM" had no tie to General Motors.
  13. Not sure I would refer to it as Famous, but a somewhat well known car for sure! It was thought to be some sort of Pontiac Promotional build/scheme but very little is known about it and/or it's whereabouts. Like most Pontiac "Special Build" Promotional cars it likely was returned to PMD and fell through the cracks if not stripped/scrapped and/or re-purposed. Items of note are the "Tempest" Flat hood and the Light Up eyes within the Tiger Face hood mural. Also seen in 1st images is the noted Tiger Tail. As seen on TV, beyond that unaware of any further details. Cheers
  14. Glad all ended well. Would love to know the brand and how the suppler handles this. Cheers.
  15. The switch assembly sounds to be out of adjustment, this switch is mounted on the shifter assembly and is adjustable. It's been years since I've had an AT '66 so I don't recall if you can access/adjust the switch by just removing the indicator plate (Pry up gently) or if the console needs to come out. Check you service manual it will have the details for this. If you don't have a service manual, You should.
  16. Well spring has sprung and we couldn't have asked for better weather for our annual season opener. Like many our recent weather has been all over the map with severe Rain, Wind, Hail add in a few Tornado warnings and this was just on Friday Well yesterday MOM nature gave us a gift. It was nice to get the '66 out and meet up with fellow car buddies and soak up some sun 😎 In the past it has rained and/or snowed at this event so with that said please enjoy a few of my show favorites. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmCQzCZK Cheers.
  17. If you look hard you can see my '66 😉
  18. Frosty, It was indeed a fantasy build. The Aussie driving it was a funny old Bloke and did a real nice job on it. Cheers.
  19. Welcome aboard! Nice Project Base. You might consider joining POCI, http://www.poci.org/ that will put you in contact with all the right leads for vintage iron parts. Cheers.
  20. HOWDY GANG, Just back from a 4 day weekend over in Austin TX. I needed some car time and since VA weather is taking her sweet ass time making up her mind I decided warmer weather was needed, also just another excuse to go over and play with the Ol Tempest Torque Tuber We had a blast, this was a pleasant surprise of a gathering as I wasn't sure what we were in for. Below are some of the Pontiacer's we encountered and the link it to a load of some of my favorites at the gathering. Cheers & Enjoy! https://flic.kr/s/aHskQvmtV2
  21. Hey Alex, Welcome to the board. Haven't seen any updates over on the FB page. Looks like you advanced somewhat. Cheers.
  22. Welcome aboard. Can't beat a '66 Turquoise Pontiac Looks like 8-Lug Rims in the 1st pic but seem to have a unique paint scheme in the 2nd making it look more like a hub cap? Anyhow looks good and love the skirts! Cheers
  23. WELCOME ABOARD, Like the '59 and the nod to NASCAR Vibe ! 😎 Cheers
