Hello,
Really glad I found your group. I did not know there was a local Pontiac chapter in Houston. I picked up a 80 Formula from LA 2 weeks ago and am getting the car road worthy after it had sat in storage for 15 years from the previous owner. Lil bit of TLC and she should be stompin up 45 to your next meeting. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

I love those old 'Birds.
Can't wait to get a good look at yours.
Do you think you will have it on the road by the 15th?
If it breaks, make it stronger.
If it doesn't, try harder.

Hi, Sorry for the late reply. Just got back into town.
I wanted to get up the meeting on the 15th but turns out the formula was not road ready after all. LOL..
Friend of mine in is working on the car to get it safe. When I first drove it , the steering was way out of wack and the brakes were sketchy at best.
He is replacing:
Idler Arm : Cracked and loose
Brake Booster : Malfunctioning
Master Cylinder : Leaking
Front Brake lines dry rotted
All Brake pads
New Rotors
Lower hoses.

Now that the car will steer straight and stop correctly, I can finally join one of your gatherings.

If I can just get the blower motor working for the defrost I would be really happy. Previous owner removed all the lower duct work and threw it in the trunk.
Got to figure out whats up with that.

Wanted to give a big UP to my Friend Justin Uhyrek who broke his finger while helping me install speakers in the formula. The springs are busted in the trunk and unfortunately he was a victim of a serious trunk slam. It happened so quick I could not help him.. Justin,, Thanks so much for helping me on the formula. Beer is on me whenever you want it. ( Sorry Justin Keys are under the mat when you want to drive her. )

I can't wait to see it in person. You should bring it to our March meet. You might also consider going to the American Pontiac Association meet in Galveston next month.
