This site is very stale and chewy.  Chris will be working on it after he gets some of the other stuff in situated.  Sorry for the inconvenience of you having to look at ancient pictures, but the rewrite will be well worth the wait.  Trust me!  In the meantime, at least Chris put one new picture on here (see above).



Don't get scared that you're in the wrong place!  Hit the 1969 Conv Firebird link above to see the show ready 69.  The beauty above is our newest project car.  It's a one owner car that was purchased new in 1968 at Bob Cutt's Pontiac about 15 miles from our house.  The car, in it's current condition, was located in the backyard of a house in Salem, VA, one mile from where the dealership was originally located.  The lady that owned it passed away in 2001, and the car had been parked ever since.  It was about a 2 month process to purchase the car, and I had actually given up hope of getting it, but it all came together in the end.  Rather than tow the car home, I worked on it in the backyard for about 5 hours, then I took it for a drive!  The car runs and drives great, but it needs a lot of work.  All of the suspension is shot, the floor pans, trunk pan, and bottoms of the rear quarters are rusted out, and the engine looks like a great big rust ball, just to mention a few issues.  On the positive side, I noticed the first time I looked at the car that it had a 350 with a 4 barrel carb, which you don't see too many of.  After running the numbers I determined the car is a 350 HO car, one of 112.  PHS documentation confirmed this.  The car is all numbers matching, right down to the carb.  I plan to fix the safety related items and drive this one for a while before restoring it.  Here's the dealer invoice and the window sticker I received from PHS about car, in case you're interested.
