Topic starter  

that I decided to darken a bit, then, I got carried away......

As found:

70 Pontiac Grand Prix   Restored

Darker paint plus dechroming and grill change:

70 Pontiac Grand Prix   Restored   PS (2)

A different grill presentation:

70 Pontiac Grand Prix   Restored   PS (3)

Paint color change to black:

70 Pontiac Grand Prix   Restored   PS (4)

 Do any of these have more appeal than the standard version?

Enjoy!

“As found” works best for me…

Don't like the car to start with and your changes made it even worst.

Really Brush.  This was a stunner in it's day.  A real classic. IMO

I prefer stock for sure.  I like this car very much.  As for the color; I really liked it back in the day and it was a popular color found on most marques (on my 72 Cougar btw), but today I like this car in black or lighter pastel shades.

Dislike the beak look.

A great as-is stock look from Pontiac and yet it's such a strong design, that nearly all colors, modifications and customizations don't negate that terrific look and it still retains that desirability. My Dad's big 1971 Pontiac 455 Grandville also essentially had that very cool Pontiac nose !

A longtime GP fan. I'll take it as found, thank you.
