Default Detroit Dilemma

I planned on taking my 1966 Pontiac Bonneville Superior combination to Detroit. Now that I found out Randolph Mantooth (Johnny Gage) is going to be there I am thinking maybe I should take the 1970 Chevy Suburban Stoner as a tribute to EMERGENCY. Your vote counts let me know

I'm voting you take that beautiful '64 sitting there. Then again, I might be a little biased!!!

Suburban less likely another will be there. Or if any of the others have working AC then stay cool.

Well the 64 (seen in the picture sporting a fresh coat of wax, new radiator and PS hose was eliminated early in the 472 4 barrel vs. 389 2 barrel on fuel economy and it still is leaking PS fluid from somewhere undetermined.

As for Peter's point, the burb does have working air and has taken on early lead in the polls.

The problem I have is I waxed the Bonneville for the meet now I am going to have to hustle to get the burb ready. It is a nice travelling car though. We took it to Gettysburg and were comfortable the whole way.

What I like about the pics above, they are both white with the same blue interiors both sporting red dome beacons just like a service fleet. The Pontiac has a 174 and the Cadillac has a 173.

My 1969 was leaking power steering fluid from the box, and after getting and installing 2 "rebuilt" boxes, I decided to try a private company that rebuilds them. So far, I am into this box for about $900, with the in / out of the box 3 times, plus shipping, etc.. If you decide to have your box repaired, contact me for the name of the person that did mine. It is about $400 with shipping, plus whatever your mechanic charges you to R & R it. It takes about 2 hours to R & R plus bleeding.

Power Steering add a cupful of brake fluid to PS reservoir will sometimes cure the leak.

So the fire department was having a cruise in for a fund raiser tonight and I took the 64. All those guys know I collect these cars and really do not pay it much mind. But when I pulled in with that shiny white 64 and peaked the Q out, the Fire Chief, who is not overly personable said "Hey Ron park that up with our rigs!" It immediately drew a crowd and was a very big hit.
