Thread Name: BS: Bye, bye, Pontiac...
Subject: RE: BS: Bye, bye, Pontiac...
Somebody brought one of the first little LeMans to the cruise nights here last summer; I hadn't seen one of them alive since God knows when. They had a flexible drive shaft, bowed down to minimize the tummel, running to a rear transmission. I always wondered if those driveshafts lasted at all well.

Just in terms of style, I always liked the early Grand Prix, and at least a couple of versions of Prix over the years. The last ones looked..okay, but blanded-down by comparison. I think the oddest thing from Pontiac was the two tailfins on each side on the '59. We have one of those around town here, too.

Bobert must have been the only living human being to outrun a GTO with a Falcon.
