    This white coupe looks very much like my '78 T-top Aspen. I still miss that great little coupe. This short film makes it very clear just how OLD these cars are now!



    I've never seen this promo film before either:

    Your slackin, its already been posted. But its better then 4 pages of ele mustang fodder. :)

    For me the 1976 on things tells me they are dated.

    Just be glad our Fs were not like some thought they might of been.

    The enclosed drawinf looks more like a 70-72 Monte Carlo than an F body.

    Is that a Grenada? Friend had one in high school. 302 swap with Flowmasters and a Lincoln front end.

    Yes, the article says some genius in 1975 thought they were gonna resemble and compete with the handigranada and monarch.

    Thank god he was wrong, I couldnt sport on looking like that, oddly the pic pf the 4 door unit has a tai; semi like a lebaron/dip.

    I guess anything to sell a magazine.

    The GM coupes were quite popular around here back in the day. I knew several people that owned Montes, Grand Prixs, Regals, and Cutlasses.
