Hi all,

My name's Anth Knight and I've just rejoined the POC UK - I was a member when I bought my first Pontiac way back in 1997, then lapsed when it sold. I owned the '70 LeMans Sport Coupe from '97 to 2001 - the car is now being back-halfed and fitted with a rather large motor, glad to see it's still about as I'm told it was rotten as a pear by the time the current owner bought it.

This was the car's second incarnation - when I bought it, it was orange with white rally stripes and a green interior (classy!)

Also had this absolutely knackered convertible, which yielded trim and interior parts for the coupe:

Over the last six months, I've started looking for another A-body - either a Skylark or a Chevelle as I've owned the Pontiac and Olds versions. Then, one Sunday night on Facebook Marketplace, this pops up:

Woke my wife up at one in the morning to see what she thought (you can imagine...) and three days later put a deposit on it. Hope to have it in the UK in October.

I'm a graphic designer by day and an automotive artist in my free time - if you'd like to see any of my work, please visit https://www.facebook.com/wheelsoncanvas ... c_m9vQQehR

Will post progress of the LeMans once it hits the shores of the UK!

Cheers,

Anth
