YAK Car Pic of the Day

82-88 pont 6000 gry whtfld copy

You could, if you wanted to, buy a Pontiac 6000 coupe from model years 1982-88. The entire 6000 line was discontinued after the 1991 models. For me anyway, the 6000 is the most-forgotten of GM’s front-drive mid-sized cars from the ’80s and ’90s even though it wasn’t the first to disappear — that distinction goes to the Chevrolet Celebrity, which was replaced for 1990 by the Lumina. The Olds and Buick versions soldiered-on until 1996, and you still see a lot of them on the road (not so much the 6000 or Celebrity). This gray coupe was seen w-a-y back off the road in Wheatfield a few weeks back.
