I saw this 60 at a recent car show here. Except for the usual showing of GTOs, out of about 1000 entries there were very few "big" Pontiacs. I thought it might be of interest to some of you. It caught my eye.

PS Some time ago Wydtrac was kind enough to provide me with step by step instructions on how to post images but I must be a complete dunce because I still can't do it. I can't get the window to appear that allows me to select a "copy" that Wydtrac described. Guess I need another refresher course for "posting for Dummies". Hope these links work:

i can see a really pretty car in those itzy bitzy pics Smile

on the tool bar above the text field when you type a message, the 5TH button from the right is the one you click, punch that and click browse, find your picture then click open, then click Host It at the bottom of the box. once you've done that, click Copy on the field that says Image next to it. THEN (haha) find the 4TH button from the right and open it, right click/paste in the field there and presto! a beautiful picture haha hope you can understand that man

Dev, I'm glad you know how to post pics. It took me 500 tries to figure it out. It's such a stupid design. I'm still working on getting a gallery for us so we can have our own albums and host the pictures there

Yeah its pretty counter intuitive... It is a stupid design haha. I always wondered why you cant just copy and paste pics straight from like for example Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to the text field here... i dunno. Glad to help! haha

I have a bit of experience with phpbb if you need any assistance.

I can't remember if I set the gallery up and never published it or what the deal was. My dreamweaver won't let me open it anymore. I click open and it starts to open and then it goes back to the desktop and doesn't open.

I wanted a gallery like Buick-59 has with a link to it on the portal page and change the opening page to take you straight to the portal. Do you know how to do that Jay? I'm pretty good with comps but I don't know shit about websites haha

Dev,
I'm with you thru "host it" button at bottom of box. Then I get a "window" from www.servimg.com with spaces requiring my email address & password. No option to backup, skip or cancel. If I sign on to that site I can see my uploaded pictures. Don't know what to do then. (That's how provided the links to pix before.)

I must be blind because I don't ever see"the field that says image next to it" that you mention. I see the 4th button (image) and the small field to paste in... problem is there is nothing to paste. What am I doing wrong?

Told you I was a dunce on this.
Thanks,
Bob

Bob you aint a dunce haha its just really stupid how its set up.

I think after you sign up with servimg.com with you email and crap your good to go... you should be anyway. After you slick Host It the window should change within the same box that was already open.... and there should be three fields with the embed code in it... Of the three fields the top one says Thumbnail, middle is Image (that one you wanna click copy for..) and the third is URL

Try it again and see what happens man... I don't think your doing anything wrong i think your just as confused as the rest of us were at one point lol Smile You should only ever see the window asking for your username/password once...

Thanks for the assist Dev.

I'm getting closer. After selecting the image icon (4th button from right) I can now paste the embedded code in the small box that appears. I hit ok and the copied code appears in the main message body but still no actual picture.

I select "preview" and still no picture... just the code (which appears to be same as the link that I was able to put in anyway.)

Below is what comes in.

Any suggestions?
Bob

I'm fucking absolutely fucking sick of seeing chevy motors in EVERYTHING. And now they have wannabeee Oldsmobile Rocket valve covers for small block chevies. What the fuck is that shit? So you can hide how fuckin lame you are? That just makes you more lame

This is true. the absolute ludicrous of it all. Whats even worse, i've seen my share of Mustang's and the original smaller Bronco's with small block Chevy's in em. It makes me want to vomit. Mad

Get this, my uncle was trying to tell my Grandpa to actually try to buy my dads big block 350 he has in my barn and put it in his 65 Mustang. For some reason, my uncle could not see why that idea pissed me off lol

dont be mad but mine came originally with the 283!! LOL You would be amazed at how many people dont believe me that its the original engine and that its a complete chevy drivetrain and frame. Now i must admit, i really wish i had the pontiac widetrack but getting parts for this damn chevy engine is a little easier though!hehe! Its still one of the coolest cars at the shows and im always the only one!

But yours is cool because it's a Pontiac with a factory sbc! Plus it's an old school 283, not some junked smog 305 that's been rebuilt and turned into a 350. Those 283s were bad ass motors. Too bad they didn't throw the 348 in those pontiacs though...
