Welcome To Geeb's Classic Pontiac Information
I wanted to try to create a LINKS page for Classic Pontiacs which
was a little bit different than the rest. A lot of times I find myself
answering questions at
with links to reference pages that I've saved over time. So what
I hope I've done here is create links to sites with INFORMATION not just neat pictures
and BBS's and stuff. Hopefully people will get good use out of it.
Tire Size Calculator
This page has a calculator to tell you actual dimensions of tires when you input the
tire spec (like 275/60/15).
Tire Size Charts
This is a good set of charts of tire sizes listing diameter, tread width, etc.
I originally found this chart at www.wrljet.com/tires.html but that link died.
I recently found it again at www.hartcom.net/~ron/tires.html but made my own copy
so that I would still have it if that link died.
Distributor Timing Article
This is an article on Distributor Timing I wrote. It gives a detailed
explaination of Initial Timing, Mechanical Advance, Vacuum Advance,
Total Timing, and Timing Curves.
Rear End Swap
My write-up on putting a 2nd Gen Firebird Rear End in a First Gen Firebird - Interesting.....
Pontiac Part Numbers
There are TONS of Pontiac Part Numbers listed here on Fred's Pontiac Part Number Page
including Engine, Carbs, Manifolds, Rear Axles, Rims, Distributors, Transmissions, Rods,
Cranks, and more....Unbelievable!
This is an excellent Technical Article on Quadrajet's by Randy Frazier
This is someones mirror copy since the original is now gone from the dapa.org site.
First Gen Firebird Page
Geoff Martin's 1st Gen Firebird page has absolutely TONS of information about
1st Gen Firebirds, with a page for each year. If you have a 1st Gen 'Bird you
have to check it out.
This is a ZIP file with a spreadsheet that has a lot of Auto Related Formulas that I got
from someone on Classical Pontiac. I have put both a Lotus (123) and Excell (XLS)
version in the ZIP file.
Drag Estimator New Version 1.6 - Updated 09/10/2009
This is a program I wrote to estimate MPH at std track distances, plus 0-15, 0-30, etc
up to 0-140 or your highest speed in the 1/4 mile. You only input your actual times from
any two distance at the strip (ie 1/8 and 1/4).
