1979 Pontiac Parisienne 305 ci from North America
Classic living room on wheels!
Driver's side door lock wearing out.
Driver's side seat belt latch broken.
Although I did list some faults, it must be noted that the car was bought used in 1979 by my Father and has been in the family since.
I wasn't too taken with the looks when he first bought it, as I saw it as this square thing with lots of tubes and hoses under the hood. I now find the boxy look "classic" as it looks different, and it's easy to work on.
VERY comfortable, but I do find entrance and egress a little challenging, (I'm 6'2", 270lbs).
When Dad bought the car, I remember thinking to myself, "This fake chrome is going to look like hell when it starts peeling off". Sure enough, I was right. The UV rays have got to the plastic inside too, making it very faded and brittle.
I do like the car though, it feels like I'm driving around a living room!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
