Cool, thanks. I'm pretty excited to get out cruising soon.
I consider myself lucky to have this old ride featured on this super friendly cool car site...

Just getting around to commenting. I must say that I LOVE your sedan delivery. No flashy graphics or tricks. Simple but effective. It is wonderful to see the few emblems & details that they came with, all present and accounted for. Your S.D. is tasteful with a great choice in rolling stock. If it were mine I don't think I would have changed a thing. Congrats on making Ride of the Month.

 

BTW, my father-in-law gave me his 1977 Oldsmobile 98 Regency sedan back in the late eighties. It was very comfortable and spacious, but having north of 200+k miles on it I was at a crossroads as to how much to put into it. I replaced the trans as somebody had overfilled it and it caused a bunch of clutch packs to burn up. The 403 was thirsty in town in spite of 2.41s out back and the $50 fill-ups were not fun. It would be a $200 fill-up now. He's still my father-in-law as it has been 33 years for my wife and I so far.

 I have  to say thank you for your comment. The flashiest graphic on my sedan now  is my new Canadian  poncho decal. It actually  looks really  good on my driver's  side window vent. I'm  pretty excited  that I had the opportunity to have it on the featured page. My father in law  always  new how rare and different  this really was. I'll  always  be so thankful  to him.  I'm nervous  on what I should  and shouldn't  do on it, I'd like to mabey  put some  aluminum  value covers  and a different  air cleaner on. I'd never  change  the egxust manifolds. So I'm not going to change  much on this old girl.  Mabey  a different ignition system? Not sure  on that either.  Do you still  have the 77 Oldsmobile? Congratulations on the long time relationship  with your wife. Ive  seen a ton of people  I know  who are  not together  anymore. What really  sucks  is it's  still minus 20 at night, and the roads  still  aren't ready  for my ride. Stay healthy  and happy..

As much as I enjoy the new car every month, I'm in no hurry for your car to disappear from the top of the page at the end of the month!

 Maybe  I could  paint  it flat black  and start  a new name and profile, take some pics  and see if I can get it featured again... thanks for the positive  feed back  on my ride. The more  time I spend on the site  the deeper I dig  the  more I find cool rides awesome  pictures  and a ton of knowledge on here. Glad to be apart  of it.. and thank you...

Hello all. I just wanted to say thank you very much for putting my car up on the featured page. It was a nice way to be welcomed on your site. Every day it gets closer to spring, that means it's getting closer to cruising time up in the Yukon. I'll post some pictures once the old girl gets out of the garage and on to the dry pavement. Cheers and happy cruising!!!!

It is not very often that we see 1950's and older Poncho's on C.P. So when we do it is an exceptional pleasure, it is for me anyway. Take care of that rare baby of yours. Cheers.

Yes thanks  George,  I will  definitely  take  care of my ride. I'm curious  what's  coming  up for next month now. I think I'm addicted, and that's  a good thing!!

It's been great seeing it here!

I looked at a Pontiac Sedan Delivery that was for sale on PEI years ago. Loved looking at it and almost bought it (so close). They are beautiful-looking to me.

I'll try to find pictures of it by a "search" of my postings on this site.

 Found the 2009 posts, but the pictures are gone.cry

This is the same '51 I saw (used to be red) for sale on PEI. A post-restoration picture, and almost 10 years later:

Eddy, i have been meaning to ask you about the dual PCV valves. You need a breather on the opposite, meaning the passenger side. Your present setup has too much PCV action and no fresh air intake action. Do you have a hidden fresh air supply to your crankcase that can not be seen in the pictures. No criticism here, it is just that an engine needs fresh filtered air going in the crankcase to aid in the crankcase ventilation process. Cheers.


 Holy just rolled over your comment  this morning,  no there  is no hidden  breathing  anything... thank you on this, I've over  looked this a bunch  of times ... thank  you!!!!!! It will be fixed asap.. I owe you one... wink
