    Hey Jon, when I saw your '57, my mind wandered back a few years to 1958. I remember when I first saw this '55, and thought to myself, what a cool custom/hot rod, and it's not a Ford or Chevy. Like yours, mod's were kept to a minimum and it paid off. The mill was highly built before any of the custom stuff was done, including swapping out the hydro for a Cad LaSalle. 55 Pontiac.jpg

  8. I'm not totally familiar with these Ponchos, so could you explain the custom work for me please? When I say custom work, I mean to the body, not chassis modifications.

    The only custom stuff on mine is removal of trim and badges and welded up the holes with custom paint colors, patterns and chrome removal
     
  10. Why would you want to drag the rear bumper?

    Neat car! I really like the 50’s Pontiac’s and will likely end up with another some day...
