This is something I had nothing to do with but those 60s colors look so juicy in modern pigments... and Pontiacs are exciting.

I don't participate in FB and your link requires login. If it's Pontiac junk though, the answer is heck yes.

Today was the third day in a row I have made it to the shop. It has felt good to get a little done.

Got it. Still can't watch the vids but wow that is a lot of Pontiac junk! If my injun breaks, I have concluded that seeing it crushed and chopped to bits will have to be the punctuation at the end of my "hobby". I can't even maintain it these days.

Nope, I drove Marge, damn I love driving that car every day! Really, driving that funky old car is a treasure and the best part of my work day.

pugsy, looking good.

I got one side of the duplex 24 X 36 garage painted, and started moving the stuff back inside, I still have more cabinetry to build for unit no 2, but the sheetrock is hung, I will do the tape and finish. A couple months ago we had a couple guys stop and ask if the 96 4 x 4 chevy was for sale. We haven't used it for a couple years, we still have 2 other chevy farm pickups we don't use any more. We ended up trading the truck for the labor to hang the rock. I am too old to handle 12 ft 5/8 fire code by myself.
A panel saw, table saw. dust collector, 3 30 in X 60 in router-shapers , air compressor, and the garage is almost full again.

Ducking in and out from under the bodies of the last two monster projects, pushing other projects around, and an hour of stop and go on either end of each day caught up with me this week. Been on my feet and knees or squatting almost all day at work and somewhere along the way I must have pulled something in the arch of my right foot. Hurts to walk, drive, you name it. I say this in quoting you because what did I do as soon as I got home ready to fall down? All my errands, in Grape. HAD to have that time with my ride. It soothes me. Go smooch Marge dead square on the mouth, she has been good to you.

On my way to work at my very first full time job in 1977 I went past a "Steel mill" (now covered in condos) where I would see the most awesome cars up on piles. It made me sick to see the cool stuff they smashed. And these were cars that already had a following and value but just not quite in time where the value was well across the market. So to see a 68 Camaro convertible up on that pile wasn't out of line.

So I see this spot on the floor, the second time in a row, same puddle. Takes a week to show up after driving. Not the shock, is gear oil, smell test confirms no need to taste.




To far in from the backing plate to be the bearing to axle tube seal, also no oil tracing on the inside of the tire.



Remove the rear end



on the gurney



On the operating table, see a wet spot. Patient has a crack in the axle tube, left side in photo. Upper corner where the shock and lower link fixture are attached, bleeding out.

Get the dermal like a dentist start to open the weld, and get to the crack. Working on that for a while getting to good metal. Grab the welder and run a new bead, on the inside.


After a short recovery time, rear installed.



A good time was had by all (the standard Navy POD event response)
