Pontiac-Oakland Club International looks like a great source for information for all Classic Pontiacs

http://www.poci.org/

Note to Admins - you should look into getting this club as one of their links.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I'm fairly certain that center picture is a 67 Grand Prix. But you can go around and say its the bonneville (most wont tell the difference). In any event you can see the hidden headlights in that center piic, quite a signature of the 67 GP.

I don't know about that. It'* true that the 67 GP had hidden headlights. It also had those very distictive "cats eyes" for the front turn signals. That picture does not look like the Grand Prix to me.

Update: On a recent road trip (over 700 miles round trip), I averaged 16 MPG (hwy), and found the she likes, and handles better at speeds that your local constabulary would not approve of

Back to that partial photo from gmphotostore.com ... the full image (see link below) is further in the archives, and is in fact listed as the "1967 Bonneville Brougham hardtop sedan". I'd like to find some pics of classic Executives (like my 1969, modeled after the Catalina and Bonneville)... but they seem to be fairly non-existent!
