  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

When Was The Last Time.....

Recommended Posts

A muffler shop called you for help? I got a phone call from a local Tuffy Muffler shop in Flint yesterday. He was given my name from a mutual acquaintance. It seems the shop has a '70 Bonneville in the shop with a cracked driver side exhaust manifold. So he was looking for sources for one. EBay was no help. He had not looked on Craigslist yet. I gave him a list of Pontiac and muscle car bone yards plus Ram Air Restoration Enterprises, who make correct reproductions of the Ram Air/HO manifolds. 

He thanked me for my help and he said I gave him enough to get started making phone calls. I guess the owner does not want to spend much money on this. Let's hope I get to hear how this ends up.

Why does he not just braze the damn thing like a normal person would?

When was the last time you trusted a muffler shop tech to properly braze anything? At least this shop manager was smart enough to know it should be replaced and not to weld on cast iron.

I don't trust anyone .. you know that. But brazing (not welding) a manifold ... if an exhaust shop isn't up to that ... WTF.  Hell, my local scrap yard can do that. And for a manifold, 9 time outta 10 a good  braze will last forever. Literally the only stress on it is thermal.
