    The Pontiacs definitely had the best/coolest gauge cluster. :)

    Looks pretty good. Good for you for saving it. How are the body & frame? Looks like its got some nice options as well. What's under the hood? 301?

    thank you for saving it! if that right side pod is a tach, save it! those IIRC are a one year only item, and highly sought after...

    the car looks rough, but def saveable,,,, somehow it just looks right with the aluminum slots and spinners!

    I really like the looks of the Grandam's. It looks pretty rust free. I like the Black and Gold factory paint. I also liked the sporty Pontiac interiors from those years.
