About 08gregow’s Garage

 

My first car

My first car was a 1989 Pontiac Bonneville SSE. I let my friend drive it to go see his girlfriend one night. When he came back my car was making an awful noise. I took him to his house and when I shut off the car it wouldn't start again. We jumped it and I prayed it made it to my house, 8 miles away. The next morning I went out side to start it and when I did the car started to have a seizure. I found out that it had blown a rod. Thats ok thought because I got a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville SSE to replace it, lucky huh.

Car I wish I still had

I owned a 1963 Chevy Corvair Monza. It was in solid shape and It was a neat looking car. It didn't have a title and I didn't have the time, but if i ever want it back I know where it is sitting.

My dream car

I think I got it. I own two Pontiac LeMans. The first one I got is a 1972 Pontiac Luxury LeMans. I am told it is a rare care. I found it in a junk yard for $750. Yes it is a fixer-uper. I bought some seats for it and sent it to a body guy. We only had enough money to have the dents taken out and it primered. After that it has sat doing nothing. I took it to a little car show and won my divition but I haven't made any progress. I had to remove a starter on it the other day and I am hoping that with the nice weather I can get the car more complete. I plan to sent it to the paint shop in a day or two.
THE SECOND ONE: I found on the road side. I was going to a car show and we drove past it on the way there. It had a for sale sign on it so I had to go look. It was a 1971 Pontiac T-37 LeMans. I am told this is also a pretty rare car because most people back in the day just used them for GTO parts. The T-37, I found out means Tempest 37, in 1971 they did away with the Tempest line and added a package option for the LeMans called the T-37. Anyway the sticker price was $3200, of course I didn't have the money and I didn't want to pay that much. I looked it over real good and it looked to be in great shape! It was black, almost complete, and to top it all off it had a 383 strocker in it. I talked him down to $2700, called in a few favors and it was mine. I drove it around town for the next week and I actually met my current fiance in that car. It now has a bad solenoid and no gas, oh well I will get to it.
