Had some pretty cool vintage stuff that we sold a couple of years ago.
1962 S/D nascar heads ported with matching Mickey Thompson crossram.
389 bored 30 over 13.5 to 1 in a 64 GTO 10.56 @ 129.00.
It was fun

I dabble in a few Pontiacs when no one is looking!  I keep that stuff in the back room, lol.  I am not a Poncho parts person, but some of my Pontiac victims know where to get all of the stuff we use.

Same here.....only GM product that I like to look at.  Mainly because they are similar to Fords in some ways.

No Pontiac parts here.

Most powerful naturally aspirated engine I have even had on my dyno was Marcella's Pontiac.  Thing was around 520 inches IIRC, had 24 injectors at three levels in the intake, and made over 1130 HP at nearly 9000 RPM.  I let John do the work and Henneger run the console on that one.  I was not gonna be the guy that killed that monstrosity.

There were a few guys I met that raced in the 422 Allstars deal. They run Picketts Automotive Repair in PA. Not sure what you're after or how hard you're looking, but they were very nice people and I'm sure they could help.

Here's a picture of one of their cars that popped up. Some people on here probably know the car and probably even know them.

No parts here, but I have a good friend who is a Pontiac guy.  Also, a very talented Ford engineer that I know is a closet Pontiac guy, bought a 64 GTO when he was fresh out of college.  Pontiac bore spacing and FE bore spacing is very close, 4.625" I think for the Pontiac, and of course 4.630" for the FE.  An FE head will physically bolt onto a Pontiac block, and 9 of the 10 head bolts will line up and thread in.  My Ford engineer pal wants to put SOHC heads on a Pontiac block, and figure out a way to convert the rest of the parts to work.

I knew a guy that put a 351C in a Firebird.  Pontiac faithful got pretty bent about it LOL.
