My ride


Recommended Posts

My ride is a 1976 Pontiac LeMans sport coupe that I restaured over a 9 years period. Treated to a full blown, frame off and rotissery.The car is match number, still has the original drivetrain.

Welcome to FP!

Very cool restoration and custom paint job Daniel. How did you imitate the Can-Am spoiler and hood scope? The blacked out effect looks like it could have come that way from Pontiac.

Thanks man , lots of hours , busted knuckles and fun! I hand fabricated the spoiler, and my friend the body man fitted the shaker and fabricated the loovers too. I wanted to create a package that Pontiac should have offered…☺️

Is the spoiler fabricated out of metal, fiberglass, or something else? It looks killer and I know the lines on that car are horrible in the back to make a spoiler. Nothing is flat.

The spoiler is made out of 22 gage sheet metal. I designed it and had a friend helping for the fabrication. The body lines are indeed complex on the LeMans but looks decent. Thanks for noticing. The fit is very good, pictures showing the trunk lid not latched…

Trust me - they are never finished. You will find something to tweak on them always.
