Advertise, advertise, advertise

Maybe put an ad in Hemmings, see if there is a local Pontiac club nearby, you could put an ad in their newsletter.
What you already did, putting the word out here, is a great start.
I'm always amazed at how many people can be reached through word of mouth, and the Pontiac Resto people are no exception.
I'm in MA, but I can ask some of the guys in my club.

Depends on how deep your pockets are. Take a look at Eric's 67. He had a complete custom frame built for his car and it's beyond gorgeous. There are also companies out there who manufacture replacement frames for GM A-body cars, much better quality than the originals - stiffer, better suspension, etc.
