    Default Gonna make me think here aren't you Charles?

    the current list is as follows and I'm sure will need updated as I remember.

    1965 Grand Prix, Cameo Ivory Driver [in process of a color change refresh]
    1965 Grand Prix Fountaine Blue project
    1965 GTO Burgundy parchment /black interior stalled project, thinking about moving it.

    1968 GTO phs'd HO 4spd 3:55 car, originalay Vedero over black,ratty blue driver currently.

    1968 Firebird 'Vert column shift Seamist green car 350 auto project in waiting

    1969 Grand Prix numbers car, will be the next Beater Of The Year when I get the engine unstuck or a temp replacement swapped in. White over black, 80k or so miles,2 owner unmolested car parked in 1977. I have the OE Protecto Plate for this one.

    1971 GT-37 350 3spd, Aztec Gold /Gold stripe low option car. ROUGH project but I have the numbers drivetrain for it and it turns my crank so it'll get built.

    1972 Grand Prix Aztec Gold, white top and interior bench seat car, 455 Th 400 3:08 A/C car. My former street racer. Ran 12:90's in full street trim as a daily driver.

    1974 Grand Prix SJ ROUGH project. OE 455, TH400, triple black. The only car I owned that my dad helped build as a driver. It will be rebuilt again as a hot rod.

    82 Grand Prix LJ Gold over gold Lear Siegler interior car. Orginally a 4.1 v-6 th200 car. That driveline will never be in it again, Project that will probably be a stick shift injected driver when it's done, may get a traditional Pontiac depending on the day I stuff a driveline in it.

    92 Bonnie SSE, White /Grey cloth int. was the wife's driver until she smacked a deer with it. Deciding on what to do with this car.

    1995 Bonnie SSE Charcoal over Charcoal leather int. 40k or so miles. Wrecked in the RR. Project in waiting.

    1998 Bonnie LE 22k miles, fairly high option car, DK Blue metallic Graphite cloth interior. 1 owner car that I bought new for my mother, Had 17k on the clock when she died. Use it for weddings / funerals sparingly. I'd simply rather drive my 65 G/P than this one.

    Several more parts cars including an 83 Firebird 'vert conversion that the PO stripped of it's front clip like a dumbass for a plain jane base car.

    Default This could take a while...

    Currently in possession...

    1983 Grand Prix – Blue over Blue with Black vinyl top, first car and first Pontiac (yep I'm a young pup), currently nearing 160,000 on the clock last I checked, 231 V6 with THM-350, awaiting a 350 Pontiac/T5 swap (all parts procured, waiting on time)
    1970 GTO 4spd Hardtop – Mack Truck Red over Black (originally Palladium Silver over Black), grew up watching this car crack off 4 gears in front of my parents house on sunny days while the previous owner went down the street to pick up his girlfriend, car was in our wedding procession and purchased a few years after (and an unfortunate wreck)
    1970 GTO VOE Hardtop – Polar White over Brown with Black vinyl top, 1 of 58 automatic factory VOE equipped cars, complete basketcase
    1970 GTO Judge 4spd Hardtop – Starlight Black over Red, first Judge, original paint, needs restoration
    1972 GTO Hardtop 455HO – Sundance Orange over Black, current street/strip car, runs high 11s
    1972 Lemans Hardtop – planned future racecar
    1969 GTO 4spd Hardtop – Starlight Black over Red, who knows, seemed like a good idea
    1968 Tempest Post Coupe – April Gold over Ivy Gold, picked up as one-owner 67,xxx mile car, OHC-6 2-speed, over 82,xxx on the clock and driven multiple times a week
    1969 GTO Convert – Matador Red over Parchment, new family cruiser, needs some cosmetics
    1967 Tempest Safari Wagon – Gold over Black, seemed like a good idea also

    Parts cars…
    1971 Lemans Sport Convert
    1969 Lemans Convert
    1972 Luxury Lemans

    In the works…
    1970 GTO Judge 4spd Hardtop – Atoll Blue over Sandalwood,

    1999 Grand Prix GT 2dr - first and last Pontiac bought new and ordered from the dealer, college graduation present to myself, sold in 2001 for down house down payment
    1969 GTO 4spd Hardtop - originally Midnight Green over Black, first GTO, sold and think it ended up a Carousel Red Judge Clone somewhere out West 2 owners down the line
    1966 Tempest - originally planned NSS car that had a cage installed by Hawkins in Richmond, IN, changed hands a few times in Indiana and last seen on ebay several years back
    1969 Tempest Convert - Verdoro over Black, sold around same time as the 66 and not sure of it's whereabouts
    1970 Lemans Wagon – Bermuda over Black, bought in Michigan, sold to a buddy, bought back a year later, sold to my cousin (16 at the time) who is currently building an awesome ride out of it, been off the frame with all metal work done
    1970 Lemans Sport Convert – Resale Red over Black, recently sold in September 2009 to fund purchase of above 69 GTO Convert, sold back to a previous owner that owned the car from 1980-1987 while dating his now wife of 20 years (while on a cruise in HI for their 20th anniversary he was granted permission to buy it back if opportunity ever came around), hated to see it go, but it’s a chapter with a happy ending and I found a GTO vert to put in its place
    1989 Firebird Formula – Red over Gray, 61,xxx mile one-owner car, drove till 70,xxx and sold, should have kept this one
    1993 Grand Prix 2dr – Red over Gray, wife’s car until the need for a 4-door, see below
    1999 Grand Prix 4dr GT – Red over Gray, family car until replaced with Ford Expedition

    Proud to say that other than the family hauler which is a Ford Expedition, I have never owned anything other than Pontiacs and GMC pickups!

    Wow, you all have had a bunch of cars! My list:
    #1 1959 Catalina sport coupe, 389-345 hp 420A with 4sp hydro. Originally my dad's special order car with a Bonneville colour and Bonneville tri tone interior. I believe my dad raced it as a "A" stock automatic. Got my IHRA lic. in it at 14 (1965) and began racing it as a F/SA. When 16 the car became mine. Sold in 1969. NOW wished I never sold it!
    #1-1/2 co-owned with my cousin, a 1964 Tempest- 421 blown/injected, T-400 & a narrowed 60 Pontiac rear end purpose built drag car. Best time 8.88 @ 168 and a real handfull to drive. I only drove it a couple of times cause it scared me to death. Built in 65 and sold in 66.
    #2 car. My first new car (12th grade) 1969 LeMans hardtop coupe ordered in Nov. 68. A 350" H-O 330hp, T400----------DROVE that car today! 48K car.

    #3, 1962 Catalina 2dr sedan, was a 389 & roto. Bought from the original owner in 1995 and is going through restification.
    #4 1971 Granville sport coupe. Owned for 4 days. Took 455 & all acessories, T400, wheels, front spindles & brakes, rad. misc. for the 62 Cat (# 3 car) and crushed it.
