About PontiacPowered’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

It all started at an early age. My grandpa had a '70 Chevelle 502 4-speed with enough power to turn the world on its axis, and my dad had his '71 Cutlass. I grew up around these cars, I rode in them to school, to the grocery store, or even on friday nights to Dairy Queen to get a blizzard. After purchasing my first car, which is a boring daily driver, I got the chance to restore one of the cars I grew up with, my dads '71 Cutlass Supreme convertible. My dad and I did a quick job on it, but it came out great and I took it to my senior prom the next year, and occasionally to school. About a year after finishing the Olds, I had enough money saved up to look at buying a car for myself to restore and enjoy for the rest of my life. I looked long and hard for a '70 El Camino, but all the good ones were in California; a '66-67 GTO, but I couldnt find one in the right price range that wouldnt require an insane amount of money; and '68-70 Charger, hey, im allowed to dream. Anyways, I ran across a '69 Firebird on collector car trader that was nearby and was well priced. I looked at the car the next day and purchased it. After a 2-1/2 year restoration im now cruising around South Florida and enjoying every second of driving my Firebird.

1999 Ford F150 (still have it)

My dream car

They are never really finished.

Filed under: 1969 Pontiac Firebird (War Bird)

Well, this past weekend my steering gearbox decided to leak all of its power steering fluid all over the garage. Looks like the seal just came apart (I guess getting 40 years of use out of one isnt so bad) and tommorow my new gearbox is coming in, so...
