Hey everyone, I'm glad to find and join this G-body forum! Like most people I have lots of questions, and have already found some answers in other posts here. I spend some of my time on the 'other' forums for older *cough* A and B bodies LOL, but this is my first G-body car. I found my 2+2 aerocoupe on of course, Craigslist. But the car only had 20K miles and the price was right, so i overlooked the whale tail. I do think it is the car you love to hate. And who makes a car with a trunk opening smaller than a full size tire? I'm a bit of an older car guy, so this 86 is a bit of a hybrid car for me, what with a carbureator that has electronic sensors on it?...normal fan belts mixed with a serpentine one?..and an air pump pushing air into the exhaust manifolds? These were strange times at GM. But I look forward to talking about it here for sure!

Those are definitely a love it or hate it car. I’m in the earlier category, and you have a pretty nice example there!

welcome to the forum from NC, there’s a lot of great people and knowledge here!

Nice 2+2!

If you didn't know, be prepared to talk about it alot when you bring it to shows. Surprisingly most people know what it is.

Yay for 1225!

Welcome to the site! Lots of good folks here. You have a very nice looking 2+2 there. Looks to be in really good condition. I had one years ago, but it was in very bad shape, and I ended up selling it as a parts car, to a gentleman who owned a 2+2 in good shape, so he would have extra parts if he needed them.
