A FREE forum with -member photo gallery- for the vintage Chevy, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and any GM builders.

PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you dont want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early GM vehicles is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page.this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!

Many, many years ago when the PCV valve first became standard on engines we used a small round plastic gauge that was pressed against the oil fill opening.  It was a clear plastic gauge with a small ball inside, with engine running, it was used to seal off the oil fill hole in the valve cover or fill tube, if the PCV valve was working properly, there would be vacuum in the crankcase pulling the small valve in the gauge to the green (GO) area.

If the ball didn't move to the green area, that might indicate a faulty PCV valve or excessive piston ring blow by.

Anyone remember using one of them?

Been trying to locate one with no luck so far.

So I found a 71 Firebird Formula 455 , numbers matching car sitting on the side of a guys house.  42 K miles , car looks good but has been sitting out side for at least 10 years, was garaged before that at his dads and they "lost" the storage.
The car is supposedly 1 of 350  , 455 formulas made that year.  Motor had marvel mystery oil added before being stored

Tires are flat and floors are rusty pretty sure but the car is sunk down and I cant really see the undercarraige,   the areas of the frame rails that I COULD reach seem there, trunk floor is there, rockers look good... car looks good but I know at least the floors are bad... not sure the whole undercarriage might need a ton of work.      I can get the car between 4 - 5 grand might have to act quick there is another guy trying to get it .    Isnt this car worth a lot more than 5 grand because of what it is ????
