I LOVE it!    Just my usual ideas, put a Pontiac letter emblem in the left grill opening...
 

 

 

 
Think '78 Trans Am, '80's Bonnevilles, 6000's... Grand Ams.., and so on.   For years most Pontiacs had a script emblem in the driver's side grill opening....I'm sure you could find a small modern-looking one at the salvage yards..

See Sean Usoff's wagon.

I agree, arrowhead and script. No hood ornament.

And hood tach.

Gret work Pat,I always admire your skill.

 I have to say I can't see any Parisienne resemblance with that or actually the old grill either.

 I see Grand Am or Prix,and to me you now need ram air scoops to blend it all together.

Lorne I'm thinking more of grafting in the ram air scoops from a 71-72 gto, but try to find one to cut up!

You need a smaller Pontiac script emblem for the grill. The arrowhead looks ok, but I like the hood ornament...

I think the grill mounted arrowhead would perfectly complete the 90's Pontiac look.

How about a real Pontiac throwback. Slap a pair of aluminum trim straps on the hood.  Razz

pat i love your work, your wagon looks awesome and ive always loved the look of pontiacs. gotta say maybe the arrow on the grill and shave the hood ornament, but then again the hood ornament looks cool, i guess do one or the other. but great work. looks like a factory gm

Green?

Wouldn't red be more appropriate for a 90's Pontiac? Top it off with a red display Pontiac CD player.

Why Green, simply cause I like green.

The wagon is DGGM, the Green glow reflecting off of the grey interior enhances the DGGM exterior.

My windows are tinted coke bottle Green, and the Green glow enhances that.

I'm of Irish decent, so the Green glow enhances my ethic roots

Green is also the colour of prosperity....

Red is the colour of stop lights and stop signs....

The factory Pontiac cd player that I'm rebuilding right now will also have a green display when I'm done with it.

However I'm quite happy with the Sony head unit in my dash currently since it was in the dash of my white 91 RMW, it's kind of a momento/tribute to the old 91 that saved my life.

on a side note, WTH is the remote for? I can reach the radio controls just fine with my arms so I just tossed the little remote in the glove box and left it there, then retrieved it from the wreck, and now it sits in my kitchen's junk drawer.

New grille looks better, I agree, lose the hood ornament and put an arrow in the grille and Pontiac script.   Hood tach, YES! Trans Am exhaust tips, YES!  No shaker hood scoop until you get a Pontiac 455 and swap it to a manual transmission.
