Holy crap! Check it out!

Who would have thought a Pontiac (a 59 at that) would win even a weekly prize!

Also, if I won the 10K I'd have enough money to finish my '59 and my '62. haha

Thanks! $100 in oil sounds like a good deal to me

Sweet man! Wink

You gotta get some air filters on that bad boy though, I'd hate to see something get sucked or dropped in there.

Also, I'd get the coil off the engine too and on the firewall.

I don't see why everyone is so concerned with the coil placement. That's where all companies put them from the factory. I don't see how moving it 1.5" from the intake to the firewall will improve anything. I do need to put the air cleaners back on.

The extra vibrations on the coil reduce life. Mounting it on the firewall will greatly reduce vibrations.

Yeah I can see that. Even though both my '59s still had their original coils. I'll move it though. I don't really like it right there anyway

I'm swapping out my ignition this winter and the coil will be moved to the firewall. I think it makes the engine look a little cleaner too.
