1933 Pontiac 3-w
« on: December 09, 2023, 11:46:52 AM »
This popped up on my Youtube this morn, 6yr old video. There is nothing on this car I don't like. The stance is perfect, very classy color combo, just beautiful inside and out. I would't change a thing about it.

Beautiful! But I'm happy to just look at something that nice and not have the responsibility of caring for it.

Funny, sixball
But yes, with a great looking car like that comes a bit of a responsibility to keep it nice.
That coupe is gorgeous, but I'd have preferred it with a straight eight, to be honest.
I have a TPI engine like that in my '57 Pontiac, and sorry to say, it's maybe the least
good sounding V8 I know. It has its perks, though, the mileage is great, and I haven't
done anything to it but oilchanges and 8 new plugs in 12 years

There's one exactly like that here in Utah.  I would always see it while I was building mine and asked him a few questions. 
A few years later,  he had Kindigit rebuild it.  Super nice car and he actually drives it to cruise nights.

I can't imagine the cost of chroming and emblems alone on that car these days. Having something that nice is a real pain. I've only built two cars for myself close to "Show Quality". It can/will drive you crazy, constant cleaning, your always on edge, where did that chip/scratch come from. You can't go where you want, where can you park etc. I liked driving mine too much to deal with that stuff. I decided just to make them look good, very good drivers that are dependable and just have fun.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Sometimes I even get nervous seeing or looking at them at outdoor venues. The mother hen postures of the owners is annoying too although I fully understand it. When I was in high school building my first car, a '38 Ford coup, two years before I got a license there was an old guy with a chrome shop in his back yard. He did almost every piece of metal on the inside of the car for $100. Dash, window frames, pedal shafts, shift lever, seat hinges, mirror, handles, steering column......When I was 16 my dad and I went to TJ to get it upholstered for less than $100, it was 1961. The upkeep and fear of damage to all of that made the car less fun. The outside never got to that level. I wish I had it now!
