  1. Growing up in the late 50's and 60's, I loved all the Pontiac road and muscle cars, seriously, who wouldn't? They had the look and the performance that all of us guys were looking for. I always thought the 1965 Bonneville 2 door coupe was the most beautiful of all of the big land yachts. The Grand Prix was just a little shorter but still had much of the same style as it's big brother. The one thing about the design that I was never comfortable with was the roof line, I just didn't, and still don't care for the squarish look of it on a very smoothly sculpted car. Well, I can't do anything about the real car, but one in plastic I can modify easily. When I saw the re-pop of the old AMT kit, I knew I had to get it, to go along with my Bonneville kit. As you know, the AMT re-pop kit comes with a custom nose and tail if you are so inclined to install. I am inclined and install both, just for a change of pace.... but I also did something about the roof line that I don't care for . I sculpted a block of sign foam and vacuum formed a roof that resembles the Bonneville rook, but also has a small chop to it and I laid back the a pillars a little to accommodate the small chop of about 4 inches in real life and give the windshield a little more rake to it. . The car will be lowered down and sport some larger wheels than what we had back in 1965. Custom paint and a mildly done interior, and bam, done.
