uuhh I guess I got another one. I found this one on a Pontiac site for cheap. I'm gunna build this one instead of the Catalina I think. It's in Lubbock, Tx so I'll have to wait until after the holidays to go get it.

1962 Grand Prix 2 dr ht, Buckets, console, factory AC, PS, PB






I'm gunna put all the stick parts from my Catalina in this one.

You have WAY TOO damn much money. How's about spreading the wealth some?

haha no i don't have any money. that's why I buy projects. I've never paid more than $1700 for a car.

$1700 59 Buick
$1000 59 Pontiac
$200 74 Power Wagon
$200 1990 Dodge
$200 67 Skylark
$1500 62 Cat
$1500 62 GP
$100 79 ford

This GP is super solid and has good interior and the guy says it runs great but has a bad carb.

I think I'm gunna swap grills and trim. I like the Cat grills much better.

Not yet, Still been busy at work. I sent the guy half the money and told him he'd get the rest when I pick it up. I guess I'm just gunna send him the rest and hire a transport company to go get it. I'm ready to get started on it thoguh!

Ok, here she is!!!!!! Not as nice as I thought, the pictures the guy sent me must be old. The bumper is tweaked way more than the pictures, theres a little more rust than I figured and the guy took the mirrors off. WTF??? haha

I could get it to run off ether after I switched carbs. Tomorrow I'm going to hook the pump up to a gas can and see if I can get it to run on it's own. It's a decent car. I'm also going to give it a good bath. It's from West Texas so it's dusty as hell and has a white haze over the whole car that comes off is you scrub the shit out of it.




I have a better bumper, a better fender and I'll probably take the door off the Catalina to replace this one.

Over all, I'm pretty happy with the car.
