Here`s my story:My story began in 2000. I was looking for a 65 Pontiac Catalina or Bonneville convertible. In germany I didn`t found a good car and so I deci... Show moreded to make my search in Southwest of the United States. I traveled to LA and spend 2 weeks of my vacation for searching my dream car in LA, Vegas and Phoenix.I met many friendly Pontiac owners but the time gets closer. In the last days of my vacation I finally found it in Phoenix, Arizona. It was a rare 65 Parisienne custom sport convertibe with floor shifter and many goodies. Second owner, history, org. condition, complete (I thought), org. manual and prospects, all bills....I did the deal.In february 2003 the car arrived in cold germany and I took the first closer look under my car. Oh my god! All floor pans were faked by many "do it yourself" mechanics. It looked horrible. After two weeks of depression I decided to restore the complete body. I found out that all sheet metals, floor pans, braces, trunk floor, frame, engine, steering, axles are the same like the 65 Chevy Impala convertible. So I wrote a list with all parts I would need and ordered all parts from Classic Industries. I get all missing parts at eBay and spend many money. I did the complete brakes system new, overhauled the suspension, restored the interieur, replaced chrome parts..... I want to do it right!I think the following pics tell more than words can say.....Let the good old times roll =;-) Show Less
