YAK Car Pic of the Day

73 grand ville red nf

          From  back in a time when car manufacturers came up with new model names more often than they changed their underwear, we have this 1973 Pontiac Grand Ville. Up until 1971 the Bonneville was the priciest full-sized Pontiac, but that would no longer do what with the influxes of Ford LTDs (and LTD Broughams, and blah, blah, blah), Chevy Caprices (and Chevy Caprice Classics, and blah, blah, blah), and Oldsmobile… don’t even get me started on Oldsmobile model names. The Grand Ville name would be dropped after the 1975 models, and was of course replaced in the top spot by… of course, he said… the Bonneville Brougham. Ugh. This nicely-preserved red four-door hardtop was seen yesterday outside of a Niagara Falls repair shop.

    Judging by the apparent four different ride heights at the four corners, this baby would benefit from an extended stay in that shop.
