Tom H 1936 Pontiac Silverstreak slantback

My car is for me....

I built this 36' Pontiac 2dr sedan for myself. I wanted to make it "MY" car. No rules and build it to fit my budget. I get a lot of parts from that free website found in every town. I love the hunt for parts. That is the glory for me. I like to find what I am looking for at great deals and make them work for my project. As for this car I bought a full 85' vette for $300 and stripped the suspension out of it and sold what was left for $535 Smoking deal I must say.. As for the motor I found a Brand new never started LS2 with a 5 speed trans on the net for $900 again another deal. as for the rest of the car. I found other great deals on Fleebay I started the car build in Oct. of 2013 and had it all street legal and on the road in Feb. of 2014. I took it to the Goodguys Arizona carshow and entered it in the Autocross. It sure was a blast to drive. It caught a bunch of attention from it's old vintage looks but what most people didn't known was the beast of a power train it had under it. I did win the Hotrod class with it. and beat many other Muscle cars by the times I put down. So all in all my best Memory with it was all the comments I got from all the people that admired it that weekend at the carshow. It is great to chat with other car guys that love there cars.

    During one of Tom's runs at the Goodguys autocross I rode as a passenger. Tom's 36 was very impressive. As a matter of fact I took the photo above with after he won. I think Tom owes me for the photo shoot :).
