Good Bye old friend

I can say I have had Pontiac's consecutively for the past 22 years.  1 Sunbird, 2 Fieros, 1 Bonneville, 1 Firebird, 1 Grand Am, 10 Grand Prixs (2 TGP, 2 TSTE, 2 GTP, 1 LX, 1 SE, 1 SJ, 1 2+2).

The only reason I have my TGP is because when it was announced last year that Pontiac was going away I decided to finally get the Pontiac I have always wanted to replace my IROC as my show car. A 2nd gen Turbo Trans Am. I stumbled across a TGP and decided it was rarer, better looking, and much more of a "show car". I have owned over 3 dozen different F bodies (yeah, that's right) so I also was happy to have something different. I currently have an 86 Firebird with 80,000 original miles as well. Long live Pontiac!

Sweet, If the Pontiac Gods smile upon me I'll find my Black / Grey TGP and make it show worthy.  Once I retire from my current occupation (in 2 years) I plan on making my one 1990 STE show worthy.

Are you on Cardomain?  Would love to see some pics.

     Yeah, there definitly going to be missed by alot of people. The Built for Excitement theme hopefully will come back. I bought my first brand new off the showroom floor car was the 1992 SE, next year I traded it for a showroom GTP, just had to have a little more power. That car lasted till 2004 when I bought my TGP and am not looking foward to owning another vehicle. Pontaic although  :flamingdevil:
