The Jalopy Journal
My most memorable road trip was in October 2004. A trip to The World Finals at the Bonneville salt flats. Our roadster had set the G/BFR record...
This from my old B&M catolog.
Frank's Pontiac Parts has them from time to time.
The front mounts are on the bottom of the timing cover. 2 bolts. I have attached a photo of a 55 cross member. If you use the 57 motor and trans...

I think I've seen the green Catalina. I really like that car. I like them with the nose up slightly.
Same stance I tried to get with my 57...
Wow! Looks and sounds great! That stance is absolutely perfect.

My Pontiac made 557hp on the dyno. I'm running a B&M slant pan hydro. Not a lot of modifications on the B&M version. As GuyW said a stock hydro...
