(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.
