Had they put an endura nose instead of a packard nose on that first one, they could have been a contender for the Pontiac E-Body contest.....

Oddly failure 1 reminds me of a 71 Grand Prix ...

Kind of reminds me of a couple old MPC models of a customized '72 Grand Prix with 30s styling touches... first came the 'Grand Superfly' car in '74, modified into the 'Sweathogs Dream Machine' in '76.

I was looking at that first Riv again... yes it's still ugly... but talk to me about that Olds 98 Regency coupe sitting next to it....

The 2nd one just needs normal size wheels that aren't ugly.LOL @ the fact he spent no doubt thousands on those wheels and that paint job but didn't bother to replace the faded headlight.

I actually had and built the sweathogs dream machine as a kid.

Brings back memories!

I picked up an unbuilt SDM at a flea market about 15 years ago, still haven't built it. I have the stock MPC '69-71 Grand Prix kits ('69 and '70 unbuilt, '71 and '72 built) in my collection. I've never seen the Grand Superfly kit.

I kind of like the Packard version. Not digging the supercharged Kermit edition.

To be honest for some reason the first Riv made me think Cordoba when I first saw the thumbnail for the ad.

This car is candy coated with a electric metallic lime green color which you will not find nowhere else.

something else he thinks you cant find anywhere else... grammar.

Man.... what do you say? I know Bill Porter worked for Pontiac back then and went on to work for Buick. I know that the 1969 Grand Prix and early 70's Grand Prix's were inspired by Stutz Bearcats. Grand Prix was a personal luxury car too. I think Delorean had something to do with that, but that car is not attractive. You can clear;y see it was a Riviera. It makes a point about how GM used to badge engineer its cars.

The second one... no comment.

To call that first turdwagon a Packard is blasphemy; I'd love to borrow it for the day and drive it to my parents house to see my father's reaction (he owns three REAL Packards). Should be good for a laugh.

As for the second one, is anybody really surprised given the source? Looks like a classy neighborhood. The rims are worth more than the $h!ty rowhouses it's parked in front of. Guess business has been good lately. Some things never change......
