The "BAD" girl Onyx. A 1965 Pontiac with a 376HP 421 Tri-Power and a 4-speed in Testors Metallic Black.

This is the the last of my Pontiac Big Girls. She wears Pegasus wheels and disc brakes. I upgraded the tires to be taller to fill the wheel wells better. I also use different inlays on the console. Comments welcome.

Bill I believe that this one is my most favorite of all. The color combo with those wheels and tires looks stunningly menacing. I love Love LOVE it!!! 

Thank you, Keith. The 2+2 had the most potential for performance as it was the lightest of the bunch.

These Pontiacs are awesome! Definitely my favourite period for these.

Thank you, Garry. I was only a toddler when these came out.

Yet another beauty in your garage. That blue interior looks so good with the black pearl, wow!

Thank you, Jeff. I was looking to do something different and the blue interior was a factory option with black.

Perfect.👍. The wheels and stance, the paint…. I’m really digging this one.

Thank you, Jeremy. To me, stance is very important. I get it pretty close most of the time.

Wow. My next door neighbor had one in black. Brings back good memories. Hers was not a tri-power but still fast for a big car. Good looking model!

Thank you, Robert. 🙂

Wow, what a beauty. Only fault I see is it’s not a ‘66 😀,

Mike, Thank you. I agree. I was entered in a car show in Omaha, NE and a GORGEOUS 66 2+2 was parked next to me. It left quite an impression. All of these Ponchos are as close as I think I am going to get.

She’s a beauty Bill !! Long and low… great stance. I like that you went with the slightly taller profile tires, good choice. Very crisp, clean build throughout sir. I always admire your shop dio, and particularly like the shots with your cars on the hoist.

Cheers, Steve
