    all i did was leave the hinge on the car, grind off the end , and punch it out with a hammer and a screwdriver. took about 5 minutes to do, but i had to remove the doors. it sounds like you did that anyway.

  3. How did you get it off? Remove the door, too? I have to change my drivers' side soon and I have put it off for a couple of years just looking at the access. I pulled one from the wrecker by removing the front fender, but don't want to do that to my kitty. Good luck with the pin.

    easy way to do it is to remove the bolts that hold the hinge to the door. take the door off and you have access to the entire hinge. i have pics somewhere of my car with both doors off, but i have to develop them first. might be a while LOL. but well see. ill post them anyway

    Lightbulb 67 DOOR HINGE REPAIR

    YES, I THINK THAT MIGHT JUST WORK. I'LL TRY IT TODAY AS I HAVE TO DO SOME OTHER WORK ON THE CARS ANYWAY. WORKING ON TWO DIFF. CAT PROJECTS AT THE SAME TIME.. NOT RECOMMENDED. HARD ON THE WALLET AND TIME SCHED...

    MY 67 IS STRIPPED AND IN PRIMER AND JUST NOW SOME PARTS ARE GOING BACK ON.. THE 67 IS THE VINTAGE TRANS AM RACER..

    THE OTHER PROJECT IS MY SPORTS SPECIAL DRIVER..\

    THANKS FOR THE ADVICE! I'LL LET YOU KNOW IF I'M SUCCESSFUL.

  8. Talking You are my Hero!

    I'm in the process of Resto-modding my '67. I am currently in the process of buying parts to build my little 289 "Rat" motor. I'm not a real big fan of Big Block, I like 'em and all, but I'd much rather see a little 289 or 302 ratted out screamin'. Could you tell me a little about the build process for your motor? I'm assuming that you have the dual four setup since you have the Trans Am Racer, could you give me some insight on what parts you used for the build? What do you think you are pushin' in respect to horsepower and torque?

    Cool 67 CATATONIC TRANS AM VINTAGE RACER

    289 ENGINE BASIC PLAN

    THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS OF THE 289 FOR TRANS AM.
    TWO 4'S AND A SINGLE 4. BUD MOORE USED THE TWO FOURS AND SOME INDEPENDENTS USED A SINGLE 4 BBL. SETUP. I AND USING THE SINGLE 4 SET UP AS I WILL SAVE APROX. 12 POUNDS AND ABOUT $400. MUCH EASIER TO TUNE AND DELIVERS ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME HORSE POWER. MY ENGINE WILL BE A VINTAGE HOLMAN AND MOODY POWER PLANT.

    EAGLE RODS
    12:1 COMPRESSION
    HOLMAN AND MOODY DUEL PLANE SINGLE 4 INTAKE
    1967 HOLLEY #4742 CENTER SQUIRTER 600CFM CARB
    H/M ALUMINUM PENTROOF VINTAGE VALVE COVERS
    HIPO 289 FOMOCO ALUMINUM WATER PUMP AND FRONT COVER
    PORTED, POLISHED CAST IRON HEADS ( ALUM. NOT ALLOWED )
    DUEL POINT DISTRIBUTOR ( AUTOLITE OR ACCELL )
    ALUMINUM RADIATOR, AUTOLITE BELTS AND HOSES
    MANUAL STEERING AND BRAKES
    LAKEWOOD BLOWPROOF BELLHOUSING AND COMP. CLUTCH
    TOPLOADER 4-SPEED TRANSMISSION
    ALUM. DRIVESHAFT
    DETRIOT LOCKER REAR, MOSER AXLES, 4;11 GEARS
    RAM AIR, DISC BRAKES, 70 BOSS 302 FRONT END
    LOWERED AND RACE PREPARED SUSPENSION

    I GUESS THAT ABOUT COVERS IT SO FAR. THE ENGINE WILL DYNO AROUND 400 HP. TRANS AM RACING IS ALL ABOUT SUSPENSION AND DRIVING SKILLS.. IT WILL BE TOO MUCH FUN.
    IF I BUILD IT, WILL THEY COME???? OF COURSE!......
