    I thought they kept the 389 all the way up to 1970. They might have dropped it before they had to go for emissions control. I don't know all of what Pontiac had to offer, I am a Chevy guy. Back in the early 70's I got on a kick for Ford T birds. It was kinda of where my head was at back then. Luxury and performance was not a bad idea.

    I liked the Buick Grand Nationals. Dinky little six cylinder engine that was a real fire breathing dragon. I helped a guy hack his computer and showed him what all of the code meant.
    First I had to down load the eprom and then ran that file through a disassembler which converted it to text files. After he did his mods to the text files I then ran it through a compiler and then uploaded it back into the eprom. His first run he pulled the front wheels and made his best run he ever made.

    I will make a mental note of this for when I buy a GN, don’t try to tell me you can’t do it either. You’re too much of a smart ass to me, you’ve not forgotten anything.

    So I take it you are going to abandon the "Land Speeder?" I can't keep it here especially with the Woodford Reserve on hand. The neighborhood really frowns when I start doing burnouts and doughnuts all over the place.

    No I stole that from the Rebel scum and Obi Wan would love to get his hands on it but never will. I’ll burn it and collect the insurance before I let him get it back.

    How awesome would I look in a black Grand National with my helmet freshly polished? I need to get my helmet glazed and my chest plate LEDs freshened up.

    Damn, you and me ruin everything.

    The T-10 had a nick name "The Rock Crusher." The one gear box if you missed a shift your synchronizers were still good. I had the close ratio 4 speed, 1st through 3 gear did not drop the engine more than 1800 rpm. 4th gear was almost an overdrive in comparison. It would drop the engine rpm by around 2100 rpm.
    I knew I had a good run when 4th gear was close to red line as I crossed the finish line.
    The maximum speed for the car was 149.6 mph but it would get there in one hell of a hurry.

    Tall , those Buick Grand Nat's are bring some Big $'s Now ! Yes ! They were Fire Breathing Dragons ! And think about it ? They really ( back then ) didn't have that whole " Turbo " thing figured out . They were still in the early stages for auto's . Imagine how they would run with the New Modern Turbo's ? One word .... Wow ! Kop , those Mopars were always hard on clutches / tranny's ! Friend I raced with weekly had a 440 in a Dodge Omni it left hard wheels in the air but 1 pass ( or 2-3 ) 1 four speed shattered . Put & auto w/ trans brake .... Problem solved .

    This whole 389 thing has me Baffled ! I need to do more research ! According to what I found via " Google " they don't list a " 389 " as a motor option in a 67' GTO , I call BS on that ! I've seen one & know who has one w/ Factory 6 pack . They list the "400" as the motor available & 326 ( I think ) . Something ain't smelling right w / " Google " !:LOL::whistle::confused:o_O

    I must really be losin' it.
    I thought this thread was originated by someone with "ghost" in their username. I even replied to him as such in Post #3.
    Now when I look, it says Bandit. (n) And the avatar is different as well.
    If it was Bandit from the start, I need to sign out and go sit in a dark closet. o_O

    Uhhh...yeh I'm right there trying to figure it out as well. Maybe it never really took place or maybe the original OP "ghost something" really is/was a ghost but is now inhabiting the body (?) of a being known as "Bandit" :confused:

    I think I'll go feed the chickens now.
