30 years later, Michael finds his own Grandville

Memories were made while driving one owned by the Pontiac dealer’s brother

(Editor’s note: The Pontiac Grand Ville was a full-size vehicle produced from 1971-75. Though technically two words, it’s generally referred to as the Grandville, probably because of the similarity to Pontiac’s popular Bonneville model.)

I worked at Alpin Pontiac in Brooklyn, New York, from 1980-87. The owner’s brother had a Grandville convertible. Each time he brought the car ifor service, he left it for a week.

I was a young man then and enjoyed driving the car. I would use it as often as I could, always putting the top down.

It took me 30 years to finally find this car. It is a 48,000 mile car in fantastic condition.

    Hi Larry,
    My name is Marsha Dickenson and I came across your article about Mike Gorgia from NY finally getting to buy his dream car-a ’75 Pontiac GrandVille Brougham convertible.

    I am the original owner of the same exact car-except mine is red and white. I named her "Firecracker Anne" since we bought her on the 4th of July weekend.

    I would love to ask Mike about our cars-maintenance schedule etc. My husband passed away 4 years ago and he always did the maintenance on my car. I am having trouble locating a good classic car mechanic nearby. I live in the Los Angeles area.
    If you are able to still get in contact with Mike, would you be able to pass along my contact info please? I’m desperate!! Many Thanks, Marsha and Firecracker
