Featured Car - Tom Dufour's 1986 Grand National

A totally original paint job!

Tom has obviously spent a lot of time and effort to make his 1986 Grand National one of a kind. The unique paint job involved removing the all body side moldings, wheel well moldings, and door moldings, and then removing all emblems.

He then hung fiberglass front and rear bumpers, and did the unique paint job you see. Finishing touches include transmission cooler and dirving lights mounted in the bumper and the emblems being painstakingly painted back on. Tom is planning on some GNX flairs soon as well.

This is definitely one GN that won't be accused of copying the crowd!
