I prefer people ask what it is so when I say pontiac they act as if the never knew pontiac made something they would be interested in.

I still have the Pontiac logo on the steering wheel but that is scheduled to be replaced with the Punisher logo this winter.

Mine are hand painted so they look very different. But most people can easily tell its a Pontiac.

The green is a classic, especially in combination with a tan interior, very British retor. Unfortunately they discontinued this before 2009 so it wasn't an option when I was looking for a coupe.

I like the black top better on green cars. Some have beige )(e.g. BMW Z3/4) but they often come off looking somehow dirty. I think the look with black is crisper.

Current fleet:
1957 Jamaican bodied MGA
1958 MGA Twin Cam (race car)
1962 MGA Deluxe Coupe
1969 MGC roadster
1971 Jensen Interceptor
1988 Pontiac Fiero GT
2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
2007 BMW Z4M coupe
Recently departed: 1965 Jensen CV8, 1969 Lamborghini Islero S

I think your Mods should start . Go W/ Backbone,Probeam,and LV Frame Brace 1st. This makes the car Stiffen up the whole frame. These are made by (DDM works)then a Solo or Magnaflo Exhaust . You will have Many Years to Enjoy the Car & meet lots of Neat People along the way." Oh and a Tune of your Choise will Help also"
