Gold 1969 2+2 in Regina? Eric?


Back in the mid-80s to 90s there was a fairly informal car show in Regina, Sask, called "Collectors Car Show and Shine" or similar.  I had my black Laurentian there in about 1985 and I saw what was at that time (and might still be!) the nicest '69 2+2 I've ever seen.  It was gold, a hardtop, and I'm pretty sure it was a four speed with a white shifter knob.  Being 17 years old or so I didn't bother to take a picture (duh).

I thought for a second it might be that gold one that showed up here (oh my goodness I hope not), but the car I saw in Regina would have to have been just a 350 or I would absolutely remember that (if it were a 396 or 427).

Has anyone ever seen the car in question?  Since I never saw it before and never saw it again, and it was at a car show, I'm guessing there may be a well preserved 2+2 in Regina somewhere.  It was immaculate when I saw it back then!

Wouldn't have been the gold one shown here. That car stayed in Ontario all it's life.

Good, it scared me when I first saw it since it was so close. But I'm pretty confident the Regina one was a small block. That means it could still be out there!

I came to Regina in 90 and did/do try and hit a couple show and shines a year. I don't recall noticing a gold 69 2+2.

The only one I know of if is the 396 2+2 from Assiniboia that went to the Swift Current area. Pic below.

Nope, that's a different gold one. That is an automatic 396 2-bbl car if I'm right and lived on a small town maybe an hour or two outside of Regina. I remember my brother and I went out to look at it and it was so cold (-30ish) that the interior windows on full defrost kept icing over.  That was 15 years ago at least, but i've got a bunch of pictures of it.  It'd be a nice car if restored!

We must sound like absolute nuts to outsiders, tracking a 1969 Pontiac with the trailering package like it's a long lost Duesenberg, each one with it's own unique identity...
