The Pontiac version is pretty rare. Usually you only see the Monte Carlo version with the glass back and that ain't often. Don't knock the A and J body "coupes" - they were the last GM cars worth remembering. I always thought the lines would have been much better if they were true hardtops without B pillars. I had a 78 Pontiac GP that did 200K on the original engine, and a 81 Regal that did 170K.

Back in the day, growing up, one of the local GM heads bought an early 80's El Camino and a wrecked Buick Grand National. Took the front clip and drivetrain from the GN and swapped it into the El Camino, then he did a lot of welding and bodywork to graft the Buick quarter panels onto the El Camino cargo box. Finished product was painted to look like the GN with all the emblems, interior, etc -awesome!

I once read that the Plymouth Superbirds and Dodge Daytonas languished on dealer lots because nobody bought them. They are big-buck collectibles now.

I thought the A body was the last of the BIG RWD GM Cars, and the G body was the replacement, that came out in the late 70's, until the late 80's. I onced owned a 78 Cutlass, and an 83 Cutlass. Both of which were G bodies. That's the only reason I know this stuff.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
