I am glad they did not go this direction. I looks like a derivative of the Firebird. Thanks for posting.

As a side note, will you be going to Oldsmobile gathering in Lansing this June? I am planning on it. I won't do like I did last year and remembered one weekend late.

Sadly, no I will not be attending. I did not know there was one. I think it is great they have events like that. As far as the car design, you are on the money. There was supposed to be a FWD platform that was supposed to replace Pontiac Firebird and Chevrolet Camaro and Oldsmobile was supposed to be in on that project. That was why you noted the Firebird cues.

I find it interesting to look at the mock up mules and pick out the designs pieces that eventually made it to unrelated vehicles such as the tail light assembly that was used in the Aurora. Thanks for sharing.

To bad you live in Houston as you would enjoy this show. I will go for the first time this year (assuming the Corona Virus hysteria doesn't kill this meet-up).

I hope you have a great time and that it does not get cancelled.

Thanks. I can't remember but did you know Justin Prince? I have tried to text him and email him for a few months but have not had a reply. I met him in the fall to trade parts and he explained that he was scheduled to have surgery in early January and I reached out to him for an update. I hope all went well.

I was not clear in my prior post. I texted and emailed him but have not received a response to date. Again, last fall, he told me of an important surgery scheduled for early January. Have you had any contact with him this year? I hope he is doing well.

He responded to a post I made on one of his videos.
