Buy it and go to a hybrid/electric car show

you'll be the greenest one there
don't need to change anything, with all the recycling we do and we keep our cars out of the scrap yards instead of buying a new one. For all of that we are greener than any battery and the car it comes in

When I was about 22 I walked away from a 70 Bonneville convertible loaded up with a 455 for $1500 because it was green on green now I love that combo.

If I had the time for another early GP I'd buy that up, sling one of my extra motors in it, and name it the Green Manalishi. Drive it like I stole it and scare small children and Prius owners.

I prefer blue but I could live with the green. Did snowflakes come as an option? They look like Firebird snowflakes and if that is so you need spacers to fit them.

Snowflakes were an option. My 78 had a set of them as well.

So some have a different offset? Hmmmm. All I've ever seen are Firebird ones and they don't fit without spacers. I need to look into that.

Mine are 14s. I may have a set of 15s as well. I'll pull them off the parts car and check for a spacer

Don't bother. The difference is 14" vs 15". I'm pretty sure they made the 14" with the proper offset for the G-Body. Every 15" snowflake I've ever seen was for an F -Body. This chart is on the interwebs. I didn't know they had a 5" bolt pattern snowflake for full size Pontiacs.

Yes. My car had 14 snowflakes. I'm keeping the 15s off this parts car (86 GP) so if they don't have a spacer I'll let you know.
