Can't say much for the T-100 other than "it's rare", but that J30 in front of it is nice.

its tail lights eerily similar to that of a Vixen RV.

That's because they are the same taillights. RV companies always use car/truck head and tail lights from various manufacturers.

bravo.

a t-1000 has been on my bucket list for so many years. i didn't know there was something called a 1000! it's surprising how few chevettes we've seen, too.

the fact that this isn't a washington state find really impresses me. that definitely looks like portland in the winter. did you have to wait to post these because your hard drive as dead?

I think Pontiac dropped the "t" from the name in 83 or 84, when the j-2000 became the 2000 and so on. In Canada this was the Acadian.

25 years ago this car was just a Chevette with Pontiac badges on it. Now it's somewhat interesting!

Wasn't the T-1000 the advanced model of Terminator that looked like a cop? The one made of liquid metal...unlike the Pontiac version which was made mostly of regular metal exceptionally prone to rust

Once heard a POntiac dealer joke that the "1000" stood for the trade in value after six months....no wonder they're not around anymore...

Here in Canada, the T-1000/1000 was called the Acadian. Love these things, can't kill 'em.

My first car in '81 was a 4dr T1000. Think I paid $6,200 for it brand new. Totaled it and replaced it with an '82 - exact same car/color - one year newer. First one was solid, second one was a lemon. Major electrical issues from the start. Traded it in '85 for a VW GTI - big step up!

My sister's first car was a navy blue T-1000 which was passed to my mom then to me. I drove the wheels off of it occasionally testing the speed limiter! Very nice find!
