Coolest GM car you've seen all week?

41 posts in this topic

What is the coolest GM car that you ahve seen this week?

For me it is a silver 66 Chevelle S396 hardtop that had to be one of the nicest restorations I've ever seen. I've seen lots of Super Chevy show winners, I've seen AACA winners, I've seen pritine Mustang Club of America winners...

And this thing was nicer, cleaner, and more seemingly original than anything else I swear that I've seen in a long time.

Also this week-

2 Good looking late 60's Toranado's

Silver 69 Camaro Z-28

Thumpin big block 70 Nova, Pro street, just wicked

Looked at a CTS (new) at a dealer

Good looking SKY was out front of a resteraunt with it's top down, someone had taken a dark grey car and added purple pinstripes. For some reason the color combo just really worked on this car.

Beautiful Gulf Turquose 67 Goat was following me home the other day. That is one of my fav. Pontiac colors, and with the fall colors of the trees I had trouble keeping my eyes off of the rear view mirror.

Not GM but I also saw a really nice Yellow 72 Mustang Convertible, again parked with its top down, today as I was leaving work for lunch.

So what is the coolest GM car you have seen this week? I've seen several, but that 66 Chevelle is still the nicest.

Hmmm...probably the really clean pale yellow '64 Skylark 2dr ht (no hubcaps, black steel wheels on whitewall tires) I saw on Sunday. The chrome looked perfect, the metal was quite straight.

Speaking of '66 Chevelles, there is a very clean '66 coupe (non-SS) in kind of an antique gold (reminds me of the color of the '65 GTO my brother had long ago) I see in traffic at least once a week or so. Has '67 style Rally wheels.

I did see a goregous silver blue '63-64 Riviera last week, first time I'd seen it around.

I have not seen much of any classics here as of this past week.

Winter is knocking hard on New England's back door. Most of

the classics are hibernating already.

I did however see a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge just about a week

ago on Rt.495 going opposite to me (south) the top was down

and it was making good time in the passing lane. I even

managed to take a pic since my camera was out taking a photo

of a Peterbilt in the next lane.

I see that car all the time, it's prob. daily driven but I've never

seen it close up. Looks pretty perfect from 40 feet away. :wub:

Yeah, winter is approaching in E. Ohio also...my brother and Mom have put away their oldies for the winter, incl. my Mustangs.

On the other hand, old car weather is here now in Phoenix--the next 5 1/2 months should be very nice. Then it's back to the oven.

Every Monday morning at around 7:30 AM when I'm heading to my other job, I see a nice white 1959 Chevrolet Bel-Air two-door hardtop go by on the opposite side of the highway. Hopefully some day I'll be able to drive something neat like that to work in the good weather.....

I think it would be a tie between the blue C3 Corvette ragtop and the white Tempest GTO convertible I saw while in downtown York today.

I spent most of the week in my barn, so the GMs I've seen have been my own. Today I got to see alot more of the underside of the Chevelle's dash than I ever wanted to.

I can't believe you have not mentioned that to me... very cool.

Damn I miss driving my B-59. I feel like such a loser not having

it back and running yet, but at least for now, family has to

come first and the time/$ is not there... :(

There is a 69 GTO sitting in a tow yard here in Columbus. Carousel Red, faded paint, oddly enough doesn't seem to be a judge.

A non Judge Carousel red 69 GTO would ahve to be a rare car.

'67 Cutlass Supreme coupe, met. blue with white vinyl top. :bowdown:

I saw it at a u-pull junkyard here :yikes: while looking for some Achieva parts, but it was in a "no parts" section of the yard so I am sure someone will buy it whole and save it.

Today I saw a Cobalt Sport, maroon with the racing stripes. Shame the Sport isn't around for '09... anyone know why?

ETA: Thanks for the topic, Chris. :thumbsup:

Not a lot since here in Wisconsin too winter is on its way. I washed the 2 and just have to wax them. If I know we are going to get something where it will snow I will top off the tanks, put 2 bottles of Iso-Heet and I think 10 ounces of Sta-Bil in the gas, really clean them up and park them.

Lamar, for '09, the Cobalt Sport is no longer a separate model, but an option package on the 2LT, with all the same equipment as in '08, except it loses the 2.4L and goes for the 2.2 L VVT.

I remember reading that somewhere. Still think it sucks. I like multiple engine choices.
