Looking forward to working with others in the club to increase our activities and membership while having as much Pontiac Fun as possible. Recent Pontiac fun includes an action packed week out in Dayton OH for the 2009 POCI Co-vention where I got to be part of several club members car-a-van to the show. Good times in Ohio! I missed the POCI 2010 due to the family vacation o California. I did not enjoy missing the 2010 convention but tried to make up for it by finding cool Pontiac's out in California. I think I was able to do just that. I had made acquaintances with a fellow Pontiac enthusiast though one of the great Pontiac internet boards- Performance Years. That gentleman- Tom Schlaunch was nice enough to offer to allow me to test drive his two Ram-Air V cars ( 1969 FB with a 303ci RAV motor + 1969 GTO with a 466ci RAV) when I was passing through his town on vacation. I immediately made that part of our itinerary. Things did change a bit before we could meet, so the GTO wasn't available so Tom had me drive the FB and a 1963 Tempest w/ a SD 421 motor. Both cars ran fantastically hard and were pretty street-able considering their power and a "bit-steep-for-the-street" 3:73's. So as nice as it would have been to say I'd driven two RAV's , I've at least experienced one and a dual-quad'd SD421 Tempest. Not sure if I'll ever be able to do that again.

In my own words: The 1967 Firebird has seen an all but frame off restoration: brakes- added front disk-new rear, complete front-end rebuilt, all new interior, complete repaint job, re-chrome front and rear bumpers, changed transmission from automatic to 4-speed. The engine was given to Morrisville College (Auto Tech) in 1966 by Pontiac Motor Division. I rescued it and had the engine rebuilt to a Sprint Engine in 2004. This car has been under restoration for over 20 years and is continuing.
1970 Pontiac Tempest
2005 Pontiac GTO
Body Style: 2+2 Coupe
Color: Phantom Black Metallic/RedHot leather
Interesting Options: There were very few options available on these cars: color (exterior/interior), transmission, wheel size. Mine has the 6-speed manual and 17" rims.
Where & when did you find this car?: I didn't have to look far to find my GTO. My father purchased the car in November 2005 at Bill Rapp Pontiac.
What condition was it in: When I started driving the car in May 2017 it had just over 7,900 miles on the clock. It had some dust on the dash and console from being stored uncovered, but the car was in new condition.
What's the condition currently? What have you done to it?: The car had a few bruises that needed attention. There was a crack in the trunk applique panel, so I replaced it with a new OEM part. I purchased a set of Lloyd's mats and put the OEMs, which are in great condition, away.
Why did you buy this particular car?: I have wanted to own a GTO since I was about 5 or 6 years old. I remember seeing pictures of the 1967 GTO hardtop my father bought in the summer of '67 before he got out of the Navy, in a photo album we had. It's been an obsession ever since. So this was my chance! And besides, who wouldn't want to have a muscle car?

What has been the most enjoyable aspect of owning this car?: The connection I have with my dad. When he started talking about selling it I could tell he didn't want it to go to someone outside the family. He sold his '77 Trans Am SE to someone down south and the car ended up being wrecked.
What are your future plans for this car and do you own any more Pontiacs?: I plan on driving the car to local cruise-ins. I don't own any other Pontiacs currently, but I have owned quite a few over the years: 2005 & 2006 Grand Prix, 2004 Grand Am, 2008 & 2009 G6. My wife's first car was a 1988 Sunbird.

1972 Lemans Sport
The car was purchased from Donald A. Schafer of Lafayette, NY in 1987 by my nephew Bill McConnell after graduating High School. The car was then passed to my other nephew Steve Lynch (Captain Steve Lynch one of Syracuse's finest). Then I ended up with it as Steve bought a '68 GTO, a fine example indeed, but that's another story.
Still has the original 350 .30 over w/ TRW pistons, mild cam and Holley 4 Barrel.
The Lemans had original paint until last year when Mark Sears (Auto Body) of Marietta (315) 673-2401 re-painted it and Scott Campion of Ace Trim on State Fair Blvd. did the vinyl top. Paint was a bit weather beat and top was shrinking and had issues, she looks like a million bucks now, color code 53 Quezal Gold. The floor pans and trunk sheet metal was all original and solid, bumpers are original, back one could use re-chrome. The interior ,carpets, seats ect. are orignal to the car, all trim chrome, side moldings, bumpers are original to the car, the only thing I re-placed were the rocker moldings and the Lemans Sport emblem on the front fender.
