This is soooo obvious :facepalm:

Gravdigr 06-24-2016 04:20 PM

But, who stole it from whom?

We're pretty good at that, y'know...

So...I'm out riding around this morning, looking for yardsales. I'm driving down a little side street, when, what to my wandering eye should appear, but my old Pontiac! 1976 Pontiac Le Mans Sport Coupe, to be more precise. It had a Pontiac 350 when I got it. I drove it til it chewed up the timing gears and threw the chain. I put in a Pontiac 400, bored .060 over, big lumpy cam, extensively re-worked 7M5 heads, Quadra-Jet off a grain truck, about $2800 in the engine. I have always regretted trading it off (for a 73 Honda 750 Four, extended forks, ape-hangers, tall and skinny on the front, short and fat out back, motor "built out the ass" as they say). It was, and still is, my favorite car.

I stopped and asked after the old girl. She's had a hard life. Not running, trans funky, interior eat up pretty bad, mismatched tires and wheels.

I tried to buy her back, but, dude just wasn't having any of it. I got up to $2500, which would have been stupid on my part. Turns out, dude is at least as stupid as I am.

He flat told me he wouldn't sell it. And he stuck to that for a half hour. Then, I came home and have been reliving my glory days in 'The Silver Bullet' since.

Man, I loved that car.

Still do.:heartpump

BTW, that hat I'm wearing was custom embroidered with "76 Pontiac" and the red, flying Indian head Pontiac logo.

It was the shiznit.

Sharp, how about a crowd funding campaign to raise enough to make him an offer he can't refuse and put her back in shape? :yesnod:
I take it he's not the guy you originally traded with, did you find out how may hands she's been through?

I had a '66 I also wish I still had.

Remember the "Hemi Under Glass" exhibition drag car from the 60's/70's?

Original driver Bob Riggle (80 in this clip) and Jay Leno go for an unexpectedly wild ride during shooting for "Jay Leno's Garage".

Neither were hurt. Leno kept his sense of humor.



I am hoping beyond hope that that was not the original Hemi Under Glass.:(

Touted as Roy and Dale's honeymoon car but that's bullshit. Yes it's a '46 even though it has a '47 grille a parking lights.

I don't think I want my car doing that. I'm trying to keep it going straight. :haha:

Reminds me of the fork lifts with the wacky wheels.
