  • I own a 1966 Pontiac Le Mans with a completely upgraded drive train, and big doller engine. Mice invaded it while in the shop, the headliner and carpet are bad. Are the chances that seats can also be home to the mice? I would like to know a trusted 66 Pontiac body and interior installer in my general area - Clackamas or close to Portland, local zip codes are 97015 and 97205.

  • My 1965 Galaxie 500 with a 390 shop manual amd 36k miles calls for 6 quarts of oil. The dipstick reads full after only 4½ quarts (and a new filter). The only explanation I can come up with is I’m using the wrong dipstick or the dipstick has moved within the handle, both of which seem unlikely. Any ideas?
