RE: October 2012 Feature Car


Just simply B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. Greg. I have seen your sweet 61 Pontiac at many shows and you and i have spoke at length many many times. One time at Waterford, Ontario we spoke for over an hour standing in one spot. I love your car Greg, you did a superb job on her and that 348 V-8 just makes her all the more sweeter. It would be nice seeing your car with the steel rims and small hubcaps, that would just finish her off real nice. Greg continued good luck with your beautiful 61 Pontiac and hope to see you and your fine automobile at further car shows in the future. Cheers. George.

Thanks George and I'm sure we will meet again. To shoeboxnut you can buy new front windshields, cost me $800. The rear one I don't know but it's the same as a chevy so it's probably available.

I agree with you Carl, I think the cragers suit the car. The steel wheels would be something just for the odd show.
