All these Canadian jobbies, are they supposed to prime us for Pontiac's hinted future here in the US as nothing more than a rebadged Chevrolet?

Anyway, cool pics... carry on, please!

I admire those that can see beyond the obvious.

See beyond the obvious? Why stop there? How about seeing right through it with this transparent plastic 1940 model GM built for the New York World's Fair to showcase the ever-growing use of plastic in automobiles:

Sorry, Saturn. Your plastic body panels were not cool or original or different at all. Pontiac had you beat by a half century.

Fun Fact: this car has survived, and has been and still is 100% fully functional and operational and on the road today!

I would probably kill somebody for this green '58. Probably.

And would DEFINITELY kill somebody for this 1926 boat-tail race car/hill climber!

Aluminum-bodied Pontiac Grand Prix show car, circa 1974 - 1976. Although it was not completed, it featured an experimental 250-cu. in. aluminum Pontiac V8, gullwing doors, clamshell hood, and a split-trunk lid (i.e. Cadillac Sixteen concept's split hood).

Interesting concept, but not pretty.

Indeed. I'd have to say the engine is the most interesting part of the whole car.

Doesn't it look to be possibly smaller than the Grand Prix of that era judging by the photos? It looks almost small enough to be F-Body based even.

I think it IS an F-Body... Proportion wise seems that way doesn't it?

It seems to have some Le Mans elements?

Yes, very much so.
