Interesting mod done to remove the rear GN wnidow, by replacing it with a Monte Aero Coupe rear window and tray. It certainlty looks better than the 2+2 bubble window...YUCK!!!

Oh well I guess. the guy probably picked that car up for 500 bucks and wanted to do something different. We ALL do that and tend not to care what everyone else thinks. Its a good job and good workmanship.

I remember the Internet wide uproar that that caused, I read the whole build thread and the guy did a phenomenal job with it, assuming this is the same one I am thinking of.

While I never cared for the aero coupes at all, hated the look of them actually, I LOVE the fact that the guy spent the time to build what he wanted that gm did not give him.

Bravo!

Doug

The more I'm looking at it, the more it's growing on me, actually. Like a fungus... But still...

I know exactly what your talking about
I always HATED those back windows.
On this car (maybe its the spoiler) it starts to blend.

The work required to do this is beyond many people here - mostly those complaining the loudest.

Ok No more complaining about this car! It's awesome! Makes me think about a later model boxy coupe with the 77-79 glass house rear window Question Smile

I was going to say something similar. The idea was well executed on a car that never came that way. Far beyond my ability. Had Buick made that car, it would be the most sought after GN I assure you. I myself liked the GP 2+2

Do you think Harbor Freight has the tools needed to do a job like that?

I already have a spot weld cutter.
