The Jalopy Journal
Thanks, Carl. My condolences. :(
One of the great ones! RIP Bob!
There is a uniqueness factor when hopping up a Pontiac straight 8, IMO. The rarity of available parts is what makes it cool in its own right....
His blue Comet was inspiring to me. Sad to hear.
Hoping for a full recovery!
What a journey!
Is there a newer link that works? I'd like to join, as I'm in the search for a '54
I used the KD3450 spring compressor to remove mine. But I also wrapped a length of chain around the spring and steering knuckle. Glad I did!...
http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/cto/4651017693.html this has been on CL lately, not mine. Recently, I got the bed Irondragon had planned on...
Very good indeed!
Typical 1940's era Bell telephone bed made by the Highway Trailer Co. out of WI. Newer ones have a flat metal top to them, which I just recently...
Since I'm stuck in a Winter for the ages, I'm trying to do a little planning for when the snow melts in June. Got a '39 Pontiac with broken lug...
I'll piggyback this thread, as I'm looking to possibly contact Dave T. as well. Looking for a '39 front crossmember, (if Buick's the same as Pontiac)
My iphone doesn't take very good pics, but here's your cars.
I stared at the '35 Chevy Phaeton, and every minute, I'd find another detail that...
Besides IMOA, joining the Fairlane Club of America will get ya a lot of info and part sources as well. The FCA includes '62 and '63 Meteors.
I've been thinking about it off and on, and you're right, boxing the frame here and there might be the best solution.
is it closed up? or still used for something? Pretty cool nonetheless.
Good deal! Posies for mine as well.
what color is that '65? looks similar, or the same, as Viking blue (color of my '62)
Yeah, at $995, I'm holding off on that approach right now. As far as the Monte clip, this Pontiac sat in the ground since 1965, so I'm think the...
Spot-blaster would be best, IMO. Then weld-thru primer (UPOL is my fave), and weld.
I'd be interested in the Monte swap. Got the same car coming home this Spring (after all this snow melts), and weighing my options....
Anything happen of this? I'm trying to gather up parts for mine.
Boxing the frame would only be necessary if the suspension is replaced with an IFS or IRS. Actually, ladder frames are designed to flex with a...
There isn't enough to these 2 coupe bodies to make 2 cars, but should make at least 1 decent one. Last Summer I found a '49 2dr w/strt8...
What I'm looking for now, is a hood and trim, hood sides, and running boards though I think Chevy boards might work.
Might see it again in June. Right now it's -21F realfeel. It'll be -21F straight temp by morning.
Oh, and that Was Tuck with the Ranchero.
