Hey there 73-77 GM diehards! New member, but long time supporter of these fantastic cars.  My car is a 1973 Pontiac LeMans that my Granddad bought new. It was the high school car of all of the 4 siblings, and with me being last in line, I got to keep it. Its been with me for each of the 27 years since, and its required a lot of work.  I'll post some pics.  Was on the ABodysite since 97 and on PerformanceYears since 2002 under the same 73LeMans moniker, and I'm on YouTube under the msweeney2112 name. On the recommendation of some crossover folks, was made aware of this forum. Im excited to see so many folks still giving these cars the attention they deserve.

Originally a 350 2bbl car, it was slow. 16.4 sec to cover the 1/4.  Its been through many iterations, but in its current form, or at least before the latest rebuild, it was running 10.6xs. Still in the process of rebuilding most of the car, but hope to have it running by late fall, and clicking off 9.90s.  Not fast by today's standard, but will certainly keep me happy for a long while. Running a NA 462 stroker with KRE heads, factory 68 400 block, and single 1050 Dominator.

Was also a shootout car in April 2007 of High Performance Pontiac.

Thanks!

Hi! I have a '74 El Camino SS. Somewhere along the way, the 400 was replaced with a late 80s 350. When the PS bracket bent, it was a challenge to find a replacement. Overall, parts for this Gen4 El Camino have been hard to find. This is my daily driver.

Welcome to the site. And yes, parts can be hard to find for this gen...but, not impossible if you just ask. There are a few of us on here that have access to junkers with good parts. Just today, I came across a new arrival '75 Elkie at the JY.

I believe Limey has a sticky on how to post pictures, but there's like a 5 day waiting period after sign-up before you can. Looking forward to seeing them!

~~Introduce Yourself~~ - Page 17 Empty ISO a 73 SS......

Post by RossM on Mon Nov 04, 2019 8:08 pm

My name is Ross, hi all. Hoping you might be able to help me locate a 73, I sold about 10/12 yrs ago. I lost contact with this person, and cannot find his info.
The car in question, sold in southern Indiana, and went, by transport, somewhere around Atlanta Georgia.
It Was a black over silver 1973 SS, big block, stick car, without A/C. It’s most distinguishing features, as it left me, were, that it sat on Torque thrust D wheels, and all factory instruments, in original dash face, had been changed to Autometer gauges.
The individual that purchased it, bought it sight unseen, and did so based on photos, and my word. He was happy when it arrived. He was looking to replace one he had in high school.
My goal is to obtain another similar, or even this exact car. At the least, would just like to touch base with this guy.
I have reached out on Facebook, now this forum. Hope you guys can help.

If you have the VIN number, I'd reach out to Georgia Dept of Motor Vehicles and request a search. Most DMV offices have a process and fee for doing that. Most state DMV's consider license plate numbers and registration information public information.

Other than that, the only other possibility would be to run a 50 state search through police computers or NICB (national insurance crime bureau). That will determine if the vehicle is still registered or the last time it was along with to whom and where.

Good luck with the search.

Hi all. I’m Keith from New York. Always wanted a vintage car. Finally got one this summer. 1977 Regal S/R. It’s a driver, solid shape, mainly interior stuff like bad faded plastics, split seams, shoddy electrics. Mechanically it’s pretty sound. I’ve done some basic stuff to it- interior repaint, new tires, emblem polishing, etc. I’m very happy to have it and am always interested in any tips or resources since I’m new to the game. Thank you for having me!~~Introduce Yourself~~ - Page 17 97b14910
