May 2016 Feature Car


Our May feature car belongs to Azi Ali. Azi hails from Arizona and did an excellent job bringing this 1960 Pontiac Parisienne back to light. He employed a few tasteful custom touches while retaining the classic looks of the 1960 Pontiac. Azi tells us more about this cool Poncho:

 I have fond memories of all the Parisiennes that my dad drove.I had always planned on acquiring one and restoring it. In 2009, a friend of mine in Edmonton called and said he found a 60 HT or sale. Two weeks later I drove it down to AZ. I believe Sixty wagon Ken saw the car headed south out of AB.

There was a lot of rust to repair but after many months , it was restored to decent condition. I did modify the side because the stainless steel was in bad shape. I installed a new 350, with a turbo 400. I also lowered the car 3.5 inches. The car is painted in the original two tone. I still need to upgrade the brakes to disc. The interior is new but not original and the mirrors are from a 1966.
