    That sucks, but looks mellow enough you should be able to push it out by hand after you get access to the inside of the fender. Paintless dent removal isn't the black magic most people think it is. Make sure the surface of the car is warm (park it in the sun), and give it a try. Bet it'll push right out with your fingers.

    That's a real bummer but I suspect the PDR person will be able to repair it. Our '67 GTO conv recently had something hit the 1/4 panel and make a nasty dent. Took it to a friend that does paintless dent repair and now the dent is gone.

    Dad was able to get a little bit of it out using his knuckles in the garage. I will see if he can try to pop the rest out using his hand with the car parked out in the sun ( if we ever get a nice day here soon, rain non stop). If he cant pop it out he has a line on someone who may be able to do it. Hoping to have it comepletely out soon

    With just over a week or so until the pontiac nationals me and dad are working on getting car and trailer ready for the weekend. Still have a ton to do yet but good start. Dad put a new trailer floor in and got rid of the checkered tile. Will post pics later. We are getting there friday, hoping to see a couple board members there

    Just picked this 2006 GTO up. Has cold A/C!!!. 37k miles. Needed something to take to shows/meets on hot days as my GS doesn't have A/C and can be pretty toasty in the summer + the wife won't drive the GS...it scares 20210717_200953.jpg 20210717_200930.jpg her.

    I miss my 2004 GTO. It had the coldest air of any car that I have owned. And it cooled down faster too. It could be parked at the end of the driveway with the windows up on a 95-100 degree day and I could get in it, start it up and before I could get out of the driveway (50'), it would be blowing ice cold air.

    Thanks.

    Yes, A/C works great. Test drove it Saturday in central New Jersey and it had to be close to 100...car was cool right away. Pretty sure my Buick would leave it in the dust but at least my wife can drive it without freaking out.

    Same here, got there at 8am, gates opened walked in to a GS 455 Stage 1 for sale, had to laugh a bit. This place was just insane, so much stuff going on. If the Buick events got half this much participation it would be incredible. All 400+ vendors spots sold out Friday.

    Did Buick Race Day at Norwalk for 25 years as a club/personal project, no corporate support, so it was done in 2015, lots of great times although, and many miss it, even the work needed to make it happen!

    We are parked right next to a white can-am closer to campground. We are facing the black top towards the drag strip. I will have an iron city rods and customs shirt on
