Yes, after more than 35 years, I've actually tracked what used to be my grandfather's boat to a member on this site. While the layout here is very similar to a certain other site I've belonged to for nearly 20 years which caters to classic Pontiacs, I found out the hard way upon registering last night that I'm supposed to be seen but not heard PM-wise until earning my stripes with 15 posts...so here I am to get started... :D

Yes head over to the "song chain" and you can rack up lots of senseless and silly posts. We try to keep the "Spammers" at bay by requiring the minimum post count.

What kind of Pontiac do you have? (notice nice option for yet another post)

Lol, thanks for the heads-up. Actually I successfully engaged the member in a private chat...luckily he trusted me as a brand-spanking new member and accepted. :)

Oops, forgot to answer your question...a 1980 T/A ('79 S/E clone) and a 1971 Esprit which I cloned into a Formula. Second owner of both. Converted both to 200-4R overdrive to avoid gasoline-inspired financial ruin since the 462 (455+.030) in the '80 and the orig 350 stroked to 407 in the '71 like to imbibe...a lot. Want to go bigger with an aftermarket 505 and 5-speed OD for the '80 soon.

Cool, I wrecked (but did not total) my dad's 1979 Grand Prix, I really liked that car, nicely optioned out. Knew a guy who wrecked a bunch of 70's T/As and his daddy would buy him another new one. He must have destroyed 7 or 8 in the time I knew him. I never liked the guy and always kind go thought his dad was secretly trying to get rid of him, perhaps that is why he kept on buying them! Or they just had more money than sense.
