As of today, the GP now has even more meaning and reason to be kept around. With the recent passing of my father, I have now taken full ownership of the GP - it's now in my name and my name only. March 1 1993 (his birthday) he bought it brand new and owned it for just over 20 years.

I'm getting impatient. I may just have to go grab it from storage soon.

Sorry to hear about your dad, Bill.

The weather is supposed to get nicer starting on Friday so maybe you'll be able to take it out then? Hopefully then our weather will hold out and Spring will actually come by.

Thanks you two.

The GP is still in storage at the moment, and (as you may have noticed my fellow Calgarian) it snowed. Sigh.

This thing will come out soon though, a special photoshoot has to be done.

It's great to see an "ordinary" car kept up. It's far too often we overlook the simple joys (or cars in this case) for something greater bit ultimately less fulfilling. When I got to the part about your father, it reminded me of this article.

Look at who finally came home today.



It was filthy. It sputtered and fought to get started. It stunk of carbon build up.

It’s now clean, with a full tank of fresh gas, the buildup has been cleared, and after sitting for several months with a dead battery, fires right up and drives just like it did before.

Tomorrow: Pontiac car show.

Similar styles were used on lots of cars from that era. The main reason I bought them was for their sizing (wider and lower offset than stock) but the looks are a bonus.
