Default Rare Pontiac Tempest and..

Been a long time since I have seen one of these.
Was at a private collection this past Sunday...

More info about Tempests:1963 Pontiac Tempest (Tempest LeMans, Series 21, Series 22) | Conceptcarz.com
The owner when he was young started out working at a Texaco station..

Like the 59 Bonneville with continental kit? Or how about the Super Bee?

Got to get off to work but can post some more pics later...Hope you enjoy..!

Glad you like them Justin. I was blown away by some of these cars!
The custom restored interior of the 59 Bonneville was immaculate!


This is their parade car.

Gawd, now I feel really old, not only do my bones remind me of that every morning and I realize that technology is passing me by but give me a distributor with a simple vacuum advance over a crank or cam sensor with the associated ICM and coil packs any day.

The Flux Capacitor..You guys are hilarious..LOL..
Ya the old days..I don't miss points or carbs any though...
Have no idea what they are doing with that motor. I just wish they would give it to me!

So on the far left of the Texaco garage was the finest restored 1957 Olds 88 I have ever seen period.

What an absolutely beautiful classic car this truly is.
