Sorry i didnt get on and post sooner, Been really busy with work and trying to get all the cars out and ready for the season.
This is actually my fathers car, but he never gets on the internet much, so i will speak for the car. This car was bought brand new in 1974 at superior pontiac in flint by my grandfather, it was driven for a couple months by my grandma and then given to my dad as a 16th birthday present, he even took his drivers test in this car, so needless to say it has been in my family its entire life. It has right around 50,000 miles on it, The paint is still all orginal and was driven by my dad thru his years in the airforce and other things, i was actually brought home from the hospital in this car in 1982 when it had crager SS wheels on it that stuck out the rear like 4 inches LOL. It sat in the garage dormant for a number of years while my dad went threw his corvette phase, then around 1995 it came back out with a new power plant and its been threw a couple more setups since then, always progressing faster and faster. It current setup is a Indian adventure IA2 block that has been massaged to 543ci, it has edelbrock heads with titanium valves, shaft rockers and all the other good parts, a supervictor intake with a king demon carb, BME alum rods, J.E custom pistons 14:5:1 comp, I cant remember the cam specs of the top of my head but they are pretty radical, NOS big shot 2 stage setup. big hooker headers and a custom full 4 inch exhaust all jet hot coated. Its a t350 and has a custom 9 inch in it. It is all stock suspension full interior and weights a little over 4200lbs.




Heres a action shot of the car, and a couple others including one at the woodward dream cruise.

That's a really nice ride! I'm especially impressed with the original paint job still looking that good. So what's it typically run in the 1/4?

Yeah the paint does still look really good, He is meticulous when it comes to keeping things clean, almost to the point where it becomes rediculous and he's always been that way LOL. With the setup that is in the car now it runs low 10's on motor and high 8's on the bottle, and that's just how you see it, dot approved tires, full exhuast and a little over 4200 lbs.

That is in the 1/4, yeah there is ALOT of good parts and money under there, its not easy to get a real pontiac motor to turn those types of numbers. Would have been way cheaper to run a BBC but theres no way that was gonna happen!!! LOL
