    WHY do they always have to sit on top of the damned car. Can't they just stand beside it?

    I was always a big Pontiac fan, and I still am BUT, we replaced a bunch of timing chains and gears on 60's Pontiacs. One guy I worked said they must have made them out of melted down model car plastic. Come to think of it I was no fan of the slim-jim transmissions either:rolleyes:

    We used to have an A and P store here in Dearborn...
    I think it folded in the early 80's.. We also had a Farmer Jack.. That went belly up also...

  10. I'm a retired GM parts counter man. I still remember the part numbers for a timing chain replacement. 483047 Cam gear, 532993 timing chain, 9775217 timing cover set, 9794125 oil pan set. I changed from a Chevy dealership to a Pontiac dealership from 71-72.

    If I didn't know who Ed Roth was, I sure as hell wouldn't be motivated by this car to have him paint mine!

     
  12. Not in 1958, I believe that started in 1959

    Pat: What was the other name for the Automat?
    Horne and Hardart or something like that. I only went to Sardi's a few times with my wife.

    Man does this take me back! This could be me and my pals. Couldn't afford uniforms, so we had Lisac's Market t shirts printed up. Wore red caps and red socks, we called ourselves the "Ardenwald Redlegs". Ardenwald was our neighborhood in Milwaukie Oregon.
    My Dad and some other guys whipped up a pro type backstop using their WW2 skills, at Ardenwald Grade School, made the diamond too! We practiced our asses off, our best finish was second to last in the League! I was a hotshot pitcher!
    After my Dad died in 08 I returned to Milwaukie for the funeral and to help my Mother. I went to visit the old school and found the backstop bulldozed in a heap. the school has since been torn down. When I thought of all those Dads building it, it broke my heart to see it destroyed. Those were wonderful days, a very different world.

    Guys, I have never met the 50's or 60's car that would be damaged from sitting on it!

    Modified Sport Production was a very cool 60's class that you just couldn't do today.
    Production "sports cars", and there were a zillion of 'em, the AA/MSP class was virtually unlimted in motor, chassis etc. Not a whole lot running, but they were fast and COOL!
