    • Gas jumped up yesterday to $2.86 in my neck of the woods.
    • I think this article from the Hot Rod Network might help: https://www.hotrod.com/articles/ccrp-0211-aluminum-or-copper-radiator-for-your-car/ Unless otherwise spec'd by your engine builder, factory coolant will work in either brass/copper or aluminum radiators just fine. Cost / price is defined by each manufacturer. Without knowing their business costs, it's hard to say why one costs more than the other. One maybe custom built, the other may be more production line oriented. I would also look at customer reviews of each one's product / quality / warranty information too before making a final decision.
    • Aluminum versus brass? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1961-1964-PONTIAC-CATALINA-BONNEVILLE-62-64-GRAND-PRIX-ALUMINUM-RADIATOR/291058983374?fits=Year%3A1961|Model%3ACatalina|Make%3APontiac&hash=item43c477a1ce:g:r-QAAMXQlgtS2CxH  or http://www.coolcraft.com/pontiac-catalina-1961-64-v8-389-421-aluminum-radiator.html why the price difference? is aluminum just as good? different coolant? Many thanks        
    • Other than local Michigan shows you mean? I plan to attend the Motor City POCI and Seller's Indian Summer shows here in SE Michigan in July and September respectively. These are the last two of our "tri-power" Pontiac shows here in Michigan. I volunteer at my local hometown cruise-in every Friday night. I am also planning on being in West Virginia twice this year. I will be attending an event on July 20th in Winfield WV for the WV Drag Racing Hall of Fame. They are having a cruise-in car show/fundraiser. They are also officially unveiling a historical marker there in Winfield for the first drag strip in the state of West Virginia. My dad and I donated half the funding for the marker, so they have asked me to come down for it (I lost my dad last July sadly). Unfortunately there are no open drags strips in WV at this time. The second event in WV is the Charleston Boulevard Rod Run and Doo Wop in early October. I will be down for that 5-day event. That's a chance for me to really connect/re-connect with all my WV friends.
    • I only bring this up in the interest of being historically accurate.  I firmly believe in “your car, your choice “ .
