    Hello all fellow old school gear heads. I just joined this wonderful site and i am loving every minute of it. Thanks to the founders for making all this great stuff possible. I am from Milton, Ontario, Canada and own a Canadian built 1957 Pontiac Pathfinder Deluxe sedan since 1996 that i restored original myself. My 1957 Pontiac has the 261 inline six cylinder motor that they came with, even though you could order a Chevrolet 283 V-8 as an extra cost option. My 57 was restored original and with many factory and dealer accessories. I love my 261 inliner motor and i would not trade it for any bent eight. I was wondering if there was any other Canadian Pontiac owners out there, especially with 261 inliner power. My other toy is a Canadian built 1974 Chevrolet Caprice Estate station wagon, that my dad Anthony (1927-1993) bought new for our very large family. The 74 has just over 51,000 miles on it and is original except for the usual wear items. The 74 has a 400 V-8 four barrel and is loaded with all the usual options. I show both cars during the months from May to November and usually put over 3,000 miles a year on the 57 Pontiac and just under 1,000 miles a year on the 74 Chev. I am looking forward to spending a lot of time on this great H.A.M.B. site. Cheers. George.

    We don't get many Canadian Pontiacs here. My folks bought a new 71 Kingswood Estate wagon with the 400 but it had over 51,000 miles in a few years. Riding so many miles in the third seat is probably why I am still a big wagon fan today.

    I'm interested in swapping info / details / pic's of 57 Pontiacs as my girlfriend is a VERY proud owner of a 57 Starchief drop top. It 'aint original / stock but she's owned it for over 40 years and DRIVES it. 'Course she lets me maintain it, along with my 46 Ford and a 48 Merc.
