Here are my two.
i just thinks it's a shame that the pontiac was such a good engine design (in fact chevy has their rocker design) but did not become THE engine.
In a way it sort of a waste of a good design.
Kinda like the middle child.
anyone ever find out who the owner of this car is or how to get a hold of this guy? or if the car has sold or is still for sale??
I think you would like my mild custom 55 Chieftain hardtop with 57 347" motor but I must be dumb because I don't know how to post pictures on this site. Can you explain how it's done, or I can e-mail some to you privately.

Here's Dad's 55 in the late 1950's, early 1960's. I am on the left, I think I am around 3 to 4.
Love these old pictures! thanks for sharing!
My soon to be daily driver...need to get some high quality pics when i'm done with it before school starts up.
this 860 '55 with 287 & strato-streak was mine all too briefly in 1989. I got it (running and driving) off one of those lots in Duncan, OK where the most expensive car you could buy was $1500. I paid $900 for it because the guy said reverse on the transmission was out - actually it was just low on tranny fluid.
a now ex-wife caused me to lose it. I'm about 90% certain it still resides in Duncan......on the faaaaaaaaar west edge of town.
57 Starchief, same owner for 46 years. (Girlfriend) Bought as a runner / driver for $300.00 and she does DRIVE it. Not original or traditional,but lot's of fun.
always liked those years of pontiacs never had one though .I may start looking for 1 to stash for a future project
