    My son recently married and my daughter-in-laws grandfather has a 38 Pontiac 4dr sedan he's had stored in a warehouse since the 70's. We're going to help him get it back on the road, everything is there and in excellent condition except for two hubcaps.

    53 Custom Catalina Hardtop, 42k miles, pretty close to a perfect original as it was inside it's whole life. My Dad bought it in '76 from a friend who owned the Pontiac dealership in Geneva NY and had taken it as a trade in from the original owner. It's been sitting for a few years now since my dad died, but I am in the process of reviving it and gettting it back on the road for spring. I'll grab some pictures next time I'm at my parents house. I'm looking for any 'speed' parts for Pontiac L8's like Edmunds duel carb intake, duel exhaust manifold, an aluminum head.
    I'd like to do a few (easily reversable) period modifications to make it a little more fun and interesting. I realize saying 'speed' and Pontiac L8 in the same sentance is kind of a joke, it's more about about style than actually going fast....I have another car for that.
    I also need a new fuel tank as the one in it has rusted up inside to the point where large flakes are coming off and blocking the fuel pick-up, any suggestions?

    My Pontiac is a 1949 Chieftain DeLuxe 5 passenger coupe. I purchased it from the grandson of the original owner. She bought it new and drove it till she was 91 years of age! Engine is 350 SBC, trans is 700R4 and rearend is the original '49 . You will find pictures and videos from the day friends and I pulled it from it's 15 year resting place thru the build so far at this address.

    Here's a picture of mine. I just got it last Saturday. 1955 870 Wagon. 287 Power Pac engine with factory 4 barrel and 4 speed hydro trans. Also has power steering and factory air conditioning. Haven't decided on any future plans, just going to drive it for now and fix the small stuff when needed.

    All I have left of the '62 Star Chief is the engine, trans, and driveshaft, which is gettin' stabbed into my '55 Chevy pickup.

    Looks can be deceiving. It's a 30 footer. Front floorboards are shot, door bottoms bad in places, interior worn, no working wiring, 5 or 6 pieces of real bad trim, and a locked up engine. But a good portion of it is solid which will save some work.

    Will get it straightened up in time.

    Almost completed my 31 Ford Roadster, but it has a 66 GTO drivertrain, a 32 Pontiac dash and 50s Pontiac taillights and steerign wheel...

    The 69 GTO is in nice unrestored survivor condition and will stay that way.

    The 65 Catalina convertible/Grand Prix clone is my favourite summer dirver but could use some steelwotk and a paintjob in the future...

    The 69 Grand Prix is the main project as it is dismantled now and being turned into a track-day Nascar Clone...

    The 58 GMC 100 (with Pontiac engine) is on its way across the Atlantic and shall arrive early March.

    My '51 2 door sedan is progressing at the Redneck Rod Shop (4t6ford on here)
    Jag front end is in (S3 Jag) and has dropped it 5 inches and was already an inch or two lower than stock. Next up is the matching Jag rear end and then the firewall is getting a tidy (rebel kit going in so will lose the fuses/reg/etc) and a respray. Will be a driver.
