Save This GP

Wow, that is a nice looking '86 Pontiac Grand Prix!! I wish I had the extra cash to buy it and slowly work on it. I wonder how hard it would be to find all that is needed for the frontend? Did he say why the frontend is missing? Blue being my favorite color (though dark blue), this would be a great GP for me to have as a collector car (okay, well collector to me). Anyone care to loan me some money? balthazar, care to donate your time with trailering this home for me? j/k :lol:

If you're serious, let me know. It's about 45min from me.

If you want to check it out and give a report, that would be great ( :AH-HA: ). Not saying I CAN buy it, but it has defintely caught my interest ( :AH-HA: )

. I am curious as to the story on the frontend, and am wondering what other problems exist with this car. If I were to buy it, it would serve as a summer driver and cruise show car. Of course I'd have to find money for the car AND the missing parts, and attempting to match the paint could be quite a PITA. But I'd love to save this GP though.

And the other issue, getting the car back here with no headlights....

Just drive during the day. And use hand signals instead of turn signals.

I was more concerned with the hood, and the presence of a hood latch.

Of course, you could always make up a "temporary" headlight widget that magnets to the hood and alligator clips to the battery.

I mean getting it here to MI. Once it's home, I'm not worried....

That's what I'm hoping......I need to see if it is worth the shot to buy....the pics just don't do it for me.

I called on a front clip this morning......

So, what's something like a GP front clip going for nowadays?

No one is willing to check this car out for daves87rs? I wonder if it is still available?
