Do you see the blue car in the background of the above picture? Does
anybody know who made that '71 - '72 Grand Prix into a convertible? Jeff Pund
(firstname.lastname@example.org) of Arkansas says he knows the guy who owns the Grand
Prix convertible. His name is Joel and he is from St. Louis. He had a guy
fabricate that from an Olds Cutlass top mechanism.
