Everyone loves their G body for one reason or another, but whats the one thing that you love about it most!? Whats the one thing you hate about it most!?
What I love about my G-Body: that car saved my life. I bought it when i was 15. Back then I had many bad eggs as friends, and I almost lost myself with the scum of school/society. My parents helped me to get a decent hobby so I would stop hanging around with these so called friends. Since I didn't have the money to buy and rebuild it on my own, they made an agreement with me: "You start taking school serious, get good grades, and we will take care of the money until you can repay. If you make it into university and finish your diploma, you won't have to repay." Well, there was a bait I couldn't refuse, so I took it it got me away from the *ssh*les, grades greatly improved, and for extra cash for my Lemans I took student jobs. While some of the former "friends" OD'ed or were jailed, I grew up "normal". The car is cool, G-Bodies are a very rare sight here in Europe, and mine is just about 3 years older than myself.
What I don't like about my G-Body: well, the big parts suppliers haven't discovered us yet in the same way they have other US-Car Classics, so sometimes getting good new OEM parts often is a gamble. Apparently we are the "uncool" kids from the car-scene at least that's the feeling I get...[/QUOTE

Many moons ago i owned a 1980 Le mans wagon, its a long story, and its coincidental you talk about the bad friends, same in this situation, went to an auto auction and mine left me there, had to buy something to get home, so this is what I purchased, a 1980 Pontiac Le Mans wagon. the car only had maybe 60 K at the time, wish i had kept it now lol, love the nose on these!
