Firing up my bird for the first time this spring in the great white north. I rebuilt the Pontiac 350 HO in 1981 and she still runs great! Only 25k miles on the engine. I checked under my floor mats and found cancerous rust! Cutting it out for new US steel.
Engine has a crane Fireball cam, aluminum pistons, headers and a 850 Carter thermoquad carb. It's has a Super T10 4sp and POSI rear end.
