My experience with modern Pontiacs only goes back to 89. Had a Grand
Am with a Quad4....actually the second Quad4 I'd owned (my GA was the
same color as your B). As far as who started it, BMW or Pontiac, I don't
think it was either....I seem to recall one of the 1960'* Cadillacs played
around with orange instead of the old blue/green backlighting. Don't
remember the exact year, but my F-4 squadron in the Marines had one for
the Squadron drunk patrol car...painted just like our Phantoms. It'* possible
somebody converted it, but I don't think so. That car was had it all. Power
windows, power locks, and auto-mechanical seek on the AM radio. Pretty
cool for a car with tall fins. We spent as much time keeping that thing on the
road as we did keeping our old Phantoms in the air! I need to find a pic of
that car and post it...found the year....62.
Ok, imagine this:
Painted like this:
It was a head-turner! Better than any ricer could turn heads, that'* for damn sure!
