    Being a telecom technician and serving in the USMC, I've been to a lot of places. I've only ever laid eyes on one Apollo (mine). I've seen Venturas and even Omegas. Been to lots of car shows, even Barrett Jackson Scottsdale. I just wonder how many still survive. Can't be many, I'm afraid. Thoughts?

    This one was scrapped by the U Pull. Most of it's good parts lived on though. Have the driver's door, trunk lid, some of seat belts, retractor covers, vinyl top trims and visors.

    Well I have a Ventura. I saw an Omega about a year ago and I see Novas all the time, but that is about it.

    Shame we don't have centralized registration like in the UK which makes this site:

    ... possible. Checked a few of my old rides and very few left of some. Should never have sold my 1966 Mk III Ford Zodiac! There is one left on the road. Wonder if it was mine?

    Joe, the color looks familiar. You got the hood. I think that one had some damage to the rear corner that John beat out a little.

    Yeah the corner is beat up. White deck lid. I have the hood. I think it's been off the road since the 80s. I bought it 5 or 6 yrs ago

    All 4 GM lines had an X body : Chevy Nova , Olds Omega , Pontiac Ventura and Buick Apollo . Now put the first letter of the Models and you get NOVA !

    I never realized there was an Apollo GSX. I take it this was an (ahem) disappointment?
