    Hey everybody,

    I just thought I would introduce myself. I am mostly into 1960's Pontiacs, but recently bought a 1955 Pontiac Chieftain formerly owned by Vic Hubbard with a real 1961 421 super duty engine with period Hilborn fuel injection ( more of a
    H.A.M.B. car).

    I have a couple of 1968 firebirds (one a great runner and 1 a project), a 1966 2+2, 1965 Grand Prix 421 Iris mist tri-power that I am building now and some others.

    Hello! Nathan

    Any pics? I'd love to see it at the Meltdown Drags in Byron this July, even if it was just for the car show. Are you going to race it or what are your plans?

    Wait, how do I post pictures here? Tried to, but it wanted a "URL" photo, when I have a file to upload (of the 55 and maybe others).

    New to the site. Have a 1961 Ventura that Iam finishing. Originally a 389 tri power. Came with an extra 421 short block. Casting number 538181, 3.25 mains. There are no stamped numbers on the front of the block. Is this an over the counter block? Have the 8 lug hubs and wheels to install. Red and white interior. Thanks
