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!

65 Tempest Convertible

Recommended Posts

Hello world.

I just bought and 65 Tempest. Looks and runs really good. I need to work on the stopping, but no big deal. Someone added Disk brakes but did not upgrade the master cylinder. 

Are there some standards in which fans of this car like to see maintained. I would assume 24" wheels would be a huge NO NO. Well at least it is for me. I thought about lowering it until I put gas in it. It would be a real pain in my neck if I lowered it.

I was looking for something fun to play with. Rat rods are always in my heart, but this car will not make it that direction. I have been wanting a Hot Rod and convertible. Now I do.

Thinking of upgrading the motor and transmission. 

World good by for now.

I'm a fan of clean and restored classics, of course with some modern touches where needed.

Got any pics of the Tempest?

I am in agreement with Ringo, something clean and tasteful. I would not go much larger than 17" wheels- 18" max. If you upgrade the motor, keep it Pontiac... DO NOT install a chevy engine. Here's a good example...
