Default New Guy from VA

Greetings Gentlemen,

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name's Bryan. I'm new to the world of Pontiac—even though I've always had a soft spot for them. I'm actually moonlighting from the diamond-star camp... ha:)

Anyway... last Christmas my dad gave me a 1976 Firebird with a 400. He basically bought it new in '77 from my uncle that worked at a Pontiac dealership. It had been sitting for several years. Had the carb & trans rebuilt and added new brakes and tires. Other than a minor exhaust leak and some vacuum issues it ran well. That is until a few weeks ago... spun a rod bearing somewhere around 90-95 mph. Figured this would be a great place to get info for my rebuild! Nice to meet you all...

Regards, xmerlinx

Welcome...sounds like your hook already.
The things they hide, the way they spin things, the excuses that they make and the things they omit.
