Default Classic Pontiac Whorage!

You've all seen the car in my sig, but never any of the pics! Well, the wait is over...

She'* not perfect, but means a lot to my wife and me. The body is in OK condition (after all, it is 26 years old) and the engine is pretty tired (doggish 301 with 130K). The interior is the best part since it was all redone 5 years ago. I just love the color of it! Gotta love the ghetto golds!! The car is a daily driver for my wife, when the weather is nice.

That shed in the background houses the 455 that will replace the 301.

i would vote you off the island, but the only problem is i would want to come too.


nice car, nice pics, nice all around! just wish there was something that could be done with that auto tranny, i think thats the worst part of the car . i still love it though!

Thanks for the comments, guys.

Ya, the automatic transmission is the worst part. I agree. Pontiac only but the manual tranny with the 400 Pontiac engine.

Otherwise, the 301 and 403s got the Turbo Hydromatic 350 transmission.

No worries, though...the shed also houses the TH400 that'* going to be mated to the 455! It will be some work to get installed because the transmission is longer than the TH350, so some custom driveshaft shortening and balancing is in order!
