            I like it. Now would I do it to a perfectly good GN probably not. Probably would have started with a rearended one. (which would have made it harder)

              Why would you say love it or hate it? Aerocoupes are awesome! When I was in tech school a fellow classmate had one and he got t-boned on his way home one day. We were all sad to mourn the loss of such a rare car.

                I like it!! Anyone who thinks outside the boredom is bad ass in my book.

                  Because some of the purists bashed him on taking a GN and modifying it and some for taking the Aerocoupe because of their rarity.......personally I like it he has some serious skills and you should check out his Turbo Malibu........question I wonder if people would feel the same way if Chip Foose had built or did this?

                    If Chip did it 98 % would love it. I still cannot believe he's wasting time on a John Deere Tractor though.

                      Only thing I don't like is the fact he did not start doing doughnuts in the grass, other than that the body work is great.

                          Friend of mine took an aerocoupe and converted it back to the regular back window. He had it done and ready for paint in less than a day.

                            so he removed 1/4's , fillers ,glass,trunk,
                            and installed new 1/4's,glass,fillers, inner metal, trunk,etc in under one day..
                            all lined up and welded in , not tacked in..
                            maybe if 23:58 is under a day..

                              I like it,, but I'd have gone the way of easy return to stock..
                              I'd swap nose to g.n. onto the chevy and welded the front half of the g.n. doorskin to the rear half of the chevy and been done with it.

                              and yes I think pontiac should've offered the 2+2 nose on the g/p as a appearance group option..
                              without the f body rear glass
