  Fuel injection for '57 Pontiacs was offered....most you'll see came 
attached to the new Bonneville line but I'm sure others snuck out on lesser models.  
As with Chevy (other than Corvette) it was a one year wonder...it's 
replacement high performance option in '58 being the Tri-power setup.  Anyone with a '57 
Laurentian fuelie is encouraged to call me collect...I have money waiting! <g>
