warpath5881@sbcglobal.net

'37 6 cyl coupe streetrod in progress
428HO Pontiac, Doug Nash 2x4 tunnel ram, Mustang II. rack and pinion, 4 wheel discs, '57 Pontiac rear.

Air suspension is the next addition to be able to slam it when parked, and still be able to drive it.

Hi There,

I too find myself with a prewar Pontiac by chance. Was sealed in a garage for 40 years while the owner was overseas. Rust free. Few dings but body doesn't need more than a prep/paint. 1938 2 door business coupe 6 cyl. It is a Canadian Pontiac so it is a 100% chevrolet chasis/drivetrain/interior with a full pontiac front clip and a few pontiac emblems to separate it from the Chevs of the day. Stovebolt 6 so no flathead.

It was mostly disassembled but left unmolested with mountains of spare parts. I'm currently gathering parts and manuals. I do need headlight stands. I also need inner fenders but they are weird since the chasis is chevrolet and the fenders are pontiac. Maybe I could modify a set of Pontiac inners if I could find some...

Just wanted to say "Hi". When I have time I'll be back...

Tim

Hello from the hills and hollers of Tennessee!
Good idea advertising on ebay, that's how I found ya! I was reading in some of the posts of how one fella wasn't a Pontiac guy but just kinda-fell into it. Well, I'm sorta that same type of fella myself. I've been a old car nut since I was a kid, my first car at age 14 was a 57 Chevy two door hardtop, rebuilt it with the help from my dad just in time for my sixtenth birthday and driver's license. Many years later I'm mostly a street rodder but also love originals and original restorations. First Pontiac was an original, driveable (though rough) 1931 coupe which is now my frame up built street rod that's been on the road since 1999. Next came my honey, can't believe I found one, barn-find-1930 coupe. Been stored since 1959 on old jack stands-all four tires still inflated when it came down. Wood spoke wheels and I drive it to local small shows and get lots of attention. I also now own a 1931 cabriolet convertible (basket case but soon to be a resto-rod), a 1931 two door coach (all complete but not running), a 1930 phaeton (rough but restorable), and what's left of a 21 year ago restoration of a 1930 4 door. I'll attempt pics of a few of these.

Welcme aboard, and please let people know if you know anybody.

To my knowledge, this is a very unique forum, and it would be great for us to be able to get together, and meet/share info, etc.

Gotta Thanks Gach for providing a site to allow us to do this...None of the other Pontiac sites have a forum quite like this.

Tom, I hope this pre-war forum really takes off. I've never found another one like it. There is a 42-48 forum and thats about as old i've found. There might be one over on POCI, but i'm not a member yet. Probably after my 55 gets going i'll join.
I may be getting a 41 myself hopefully here in the future.

Hi new to the site, looks great! I posted a pic of my 40' sedan. It was supposed to be a parts car for a 40' coupe that I was hot rodding but turned into the "little old lady had his in her garage" story. It was $4,000.00, and when she opened her garage I knew 1) I was buying it and 2) There was no way I was going to tear it apart! She was the second owner and had all the service history since it was new (including every time gas or oil was added until 1958!) I added some gas a new battery changed the oil and it fired, the oil pressure came up and the generator started charging! The only other thing was a repaint in the original color and some new white walls.

I hope it takes off too Bill, it's just a matter of whether people want to keep coming or not, either way, it will stay, and hopefullywe'll have a way to e-mail people, etc.

I think it will grow though

Hopefully you will get that '41...can't wait to see it.

BTW, if you think there's enough interest, we may be able to start a forum for the '46 to ? cars....maybe up to 1958?

Or find a way to incorporate it into this one or something?
