Gotta agree on the styling. Look at the suspension slop in that '69....

Watching ''99 take off in the acceleration test.... wouldn't you call that torque steer also? :neenerneener:

I think the F4 T/A is a great looking car, Ram Air hood or not. And the styling was actually clean for a Pontiac of that era. That's just my opinion, though.

When I sold new BPGs back in 1999-2000, I remember getting the news that our dealership's 30th Anniversary T/A was on the way ( it was sometime in the spring). I tried like heck to get some of my T/A customers to go for the 30th model, but none wanted to pony up the extra cash for it; another young salesman was able to take an advance deposit on it and delivered it within a day of its arrival. I did luck out though when the sales manager gave me one of only 4 30th T/A brochures he was sent (the owner did not want them, and my sales manager was holding them for the owner until he refused). While I liked the 30th T/A, especially much more than the similar yellow 2002 Collector's Edition, I still prefer the 1994 25th Anniversary T/A the best.
