Newbie here, but always loved Pontiacs

Hi, my name is Byron McElfresh. I have always loved the Pontiacs of the past and the engines in them. While I have built all types of engines, none of the others gives me as much pleasure as building a Pontiac V8. I also am very political in my views, to the point a half dozen years ago I ran for an office against very well known and money backed field. While i didn't win, I have been told by all the others who were running that I made them address some issues they didn't want to. So I hope I had a possitive influence. I love a good drag race too. I have an attitude about chevies racecars, I put Pontiac engines in them !!! And even Fords in early camaros, because the chevy engines is just plain way over rated.

Welcome aboard! And thank you for signing up! That's interesting to hear you've ran for office at one time. Would you consider it again? And what's the difference between Chevy and Pontiac engines.. Didn't Firebirds and Trans Ams (and Formulas, for that matter) come with Chevy 305s and 350s?
 
From 70-81 all Firebirds, Formulas and T/A's had Pontiac V8s. Well, almost....

I started liking cars in the early 80s.. So I guess all I really knew about were Chevy f-bodies... The late 70s cars were weak for performance with the whole gas situation going on. I never got into any of them... Of course, I was too young to think about modifying them...
