Some of you might know me already.

I wanted a RMW for a long time before I finally was able to pick one up last fall. It's a '95 tow-pack car with just under 160k on the clock. I drive it to work every day (but only have a short commute) and it serves as my family-hauler since I can't stand my wife's rink-a-dink Malibu Maxx and using my pickup as a family vehicle is impractical.

As with most cars that have 160k on the clock, mine is tired and could use all kinds of maintenance and improvements. But, while I have young kids in school, there is not much extra money to throw at this thing. So, some upgrades will have to remain pipe dreams. Therefore, I won't be "wowing" any of you here with my awesome machine. It's a mostly stock vehicle that I am going to maintain and play with when needed or as I am able.

I don't have any great photos right now, but just finished installing a new digital receiver from Crutchfield in the car a few moments ago. While I was waiting for my heater to cool down, I snapped some pics to put here in my intro thread. Please excuse my messy garage; multiple projects have made it cramped and dirty this season.






Here is the stereo. Nothing amazing, but I am SO happy to have it. My car only came equipped with a radio, no CD player, and FM radio drives me crazy. For around $129, I got this thing that has Bluetooth for my phone and which can play music from an iPod/MP3 player or a USB memory stick. I mounted the microphone for the Bluetooth on top of the steering column; I hope that yields decent results.



Other things about me: I am in Mass., am a lifelong GM/Pontiac guy, love old barns, and moderate a tool and garage forum.

I love these cars and look forward to learning as much as I can here.

Thanks for the welcome and wow, good eye. Yes, there is a '69 GTO in there. At one time, when I was young and free, I owned I think five old Pontiacs at once. Now, I'm down to two: the Goat and a '76 Trans Am.

Love that color combo. First wagon I looked to buy was that combo. Loved it, but not the sellers asking price, lol.

Nice T/A too. Love the 75-78s the best of the second gen. Welcome aboard.

Welcome!

I'm kinda partial to the '08-'09 Black G8 GT. The wife has an '09 GT in Pacific Slate Met. (1 of 168 made in that color)

Thanks, Joe. Yep, have had the Pontiac sickness since middle school. I used to drive that GTO in the field when it was champagne colored and my brother was storing it in the small garage here, and the property was still owned by my grandparents. My mom helped me buy the car in 1994. What a great mom!

Thanks very much. I am partial to the colors, too, and even the wood over wood-delete. I think I paid $2700 for the wagon. The price had actually gone DOWN by about $500 between the time I saw it on Craigslist and the time it ended up on a used car lot, where the CL seller had traded it in.

I wish I could say that the G8 was mine. It actually belongs to a buddy of mine, who was here the day I took that photo. It's a great car, for sure.

I wish I was in New Hampshire. I'm in Mass. What section should I go to? Made in?

Thank you. Both the TA and the GTO have Pontiac 400s. The one in the GTO has been bored to 412; the engine in the TA is freshly rebuilt. but by the PO so I don't have the specs for it.
