  1. I agree, great story and a nice car to keep going . . . . . Thanks for sharing the story . . . .
  2. Having a really, really nice fall in Western Canada . . . . Temps in the mid 20's Celcius each day for weeks now ( mid 70's Fahrenheit ) great time to take the 1935 Pontiac for a few last spins . . . .
  3. I have used Olsons and they are very good and supply many of the stores etc. They can even make one if you send it to them, http://www.olsonsgaskets.com/
  4. A wealthy land owner stopped at gas station to fill up his truck. While waiting for the attendant to fill the tank he wanted to impress on him how much land he owned, so he said, I have a ranch just West of here and it takes me 3 days to drive from one end to the other. The attendant looked at him and said " I used to own a truck like that" !
  5. Hello, Canada did go to kilometer per hour in 1977 when switching over to the metric system . . . . you would be looking for MPH for your 1926 car . . . .
  6. Thanks Randiego, I'll have painted the emblems and they turned out really well. I didn't think of the petroleum jelly idea, so I'll keep that in mind, Joe
  7. Thanks Pete, I'll look around and see if i can find some, Joe
  8. I think the one in the background might be a 1935 Pontiac 8 cylinder with the Indian Princess hood ornament. it's hard to tell . . . .
  9. Take a look under general discussions, I have also posted the question there and have a couple of replys (suggestions), Joe
  10. Thanks for the above methods, I'm not sure if I can safely file any areas that are pretty fine detail without a miss and a scratch. I'll try the self etching primer and then the laquer and the paint paddle with the cloth . . . . I think that method will work best for these emblems, As always, Thank-You for your ideas and suggestions, Joe
  11. Hello, I have recently had a few 1935 Pontiac emblems chromed and now have to paint parts of them before putting them back on the car. I haven't done this before and am wondering the best way to go about prepping / painting the chrome so the paint will stay on. Any ideas and / or suggestions are welcome. Attached are some pictures of the emblem I will be painting ( Pontiac 8 ) and an original emblem ( Pontiac ) with the original paint still on it. Thanks in advance, Joe

  14. FYI - I think the clock is for a 1936 Pontiac . . . .
  15. Great looking car . . . . Do you have any pictures of the interior of the car? and is there any rust on the vehicle? Thanks, Joe
  16. If you can find one near you then that would be ideal. I have had a few 1935 Pontiacs and they are getting tough to find. This one is the 1935 coupe, it's tough to see the "Silver Streak" up the center of the hood but it is there. good luck with the search, Joe
  17. Hello, I do know of one 1935 Pontiac coupe that has been sitting in a field in Montana for 15 - 20 years. I'll try and contact the owner and see if he is willing to sell the car. The car has been sitting for a long time so the body isn't in great shape but it might be a good parts car. He isn't always around so not easy to get a hold of and in the past he goes back and forth on selling it. I'll let you know what I find out . . . . which state are you located in? Joe
  18. Hello, have you tried the POCI club and some of the technical experts in the club? I have a 1935 Pontiac coupe and they have been very helpful when required, Hope this helps, Joe
  19. Hi Tom, it is 32 5/8 length for the straight 8. Thanks for the heads up, Joe
  20. Here are some pics of a water dsitribution tube from a 1935 Pontiac straight 6. Same as the straigh 8, just a little bit shorter. It is open on the water pump end and closed on the other end. Here are the approx. measurements of the water tube. 32 inches long - 1 1/2 inches on the long side of the end - 1 inch on the short side of the end - and the width is 1/2 inch, If you have one please let me know, Thanks, Joe
  21. I'll see if I can find a pic of the straight 6 water distribution tube . . . . . it is the same dimensions as the straight 8 with the exception of the length . . . . Thanks, Joe
  22. Hello, Thanks for the heads up . . . . I did give them a call and no luck so far. I'll keep looking, Cheers, Joe
  23. Hi Tom, sounds good to me . . . .. so far no luck in tracking down one for a straight 8 . . . . . have found a few for the straight 6's . . . . . I'll let you know how I make out, Cheers, Joe
