Hey quick question for you Aero fans. Do you think the site in general is "hostile" towards the Buttless I mean Aero cars? I think we've got a pretty core group of fans that love them to death and have been cheerleaders for them, helping to push them a little further towards acceptance. What... Read more…

I appreciate the question. I personally think there is a respect for them amongst the G enthusiast as a whole, and of course us die hard fans, however there are a few nasty people on here id like to slap right in their puss with some of their disrespectful comments, but I guess you'll get that no matter where you go these days. to me, respect is everything. Again, thank you for this awesome website and the time an energy you put into it for our enjoyment, and how your always striving to make the experience better than the one before! ---Will

I think I know where this question came from, but I don't believe there is any hostility towards the Aero cars. I'm first to admit, these are a love it or hate it body style... but they are G bodys. They are rare, unique, and you don't see them on the road very often. I'm lucky to own Aero and Coupe G Bodys. We will see soon enough when my Salon is done how the Forum reacts. I think it will be one of the nicest / coolest Aeros on the Forum, " Butt" in the end, it's my car & my $$$, so I don't really care what others think. BTW - I love how passionate Will is about these cars.

I don't think its a lack of respect as much as its penis envy. There are a couple of dick swingers on here who feel that their opinions of what a car should be(must be like theirs), should be law. I don't care. There are plenty of open minded members who, like us, love the fact that we have a place to gather and enjoy each others uniqueness.
I , like some others, have been fortunate to have several cars to enjoy and i will make them as i want. Some original and some are modified. The mental pygmies don't run me or my world. They can just put their head back in the hole they pulled it from .

This group thing seems a bit different in the way you do a post but I think I’m doing my own post here and not a reply to someone else’s...???

As most of you guys know, I own (3) of these cars. Here we can talk specifically about these love/hate body styles. They are unique, and a little more rare than the other G body styles. I own the only ones that I know of in my area. That's what I like about them.

I'll give this a go.
My first experience was when my dad bought a new 79 salon sedan. He needed to replace his 75 salon sedan that came with bucket seats and console. I wish i had that car today. Anyway, i road tested with him while sorted out out what he wanted. I was 14 yo. He passed on the 260 diesel version luckily and got a camel brown sedan, cruise, tilt, ac and rwd. 260 gas engine with the stock 2:29 axle. That car would shift into third at like 80mph on full throttle runs.
My 1978 coupe came out of south Dakota. 260, 5 spd, tilt, and ac. The only way to get a 5spd was with buckets, so it has bucke its also. Carmine red with matching interior. 46k on it when i bought it.
I've added sport steering wheel, gauges with 120 speedo, 32mm front sway bar and a factory rear bar.

I was a service advisor at a Buick dealer in 1978 and was sort of attracted to the new Century sedans. I disliked the service manager there and left after a couple months and went to a Dodge dealer till they closed like so many Chrysler Corp dealers folded in 1979. So next I went to Cadillac and...

Got any photos. I always liked the two tone, four door. Especially the blue two tone. Green and brown two tones are nice as well

I really appreciate the invite, thank you!

In a world full of G's, a car one rarely sees-- the slant backs from GM, some see no value, some see Jem's,-- I like that they are different and funky, rarely seen at shows, a car that few when even new chose-- But for me the love and passion was one... Read more…
