Re: The HPP Article Is Here....

Im have read both parts of this article and loved it...... So much that I am gathering up a few extra copies to take apart & frame each half of the article. Since I like to show both my 87 GTA and my 89 TTA, I think it would be a great prop for a show to have both parts of the article framed and laying in the back of each car as they sit side by side.

My center ell out on the first issue. I took some needle nosed pliers, straightened out the staples, put it back in, and fixed the staples.

And I drove straight by the only place in town that carries HPP...Now I've gotta drive back down there.

Re: The HPP Article Is Here....

Picked up Pt. 2 today...A quick scan at the store. It looks like a longer article/more pages.

Pt. 3? I didn't anything indicating a Pt. 3, or if it was the end of the story.

Re: The HPP Article Is Here....

No, there's not a Part III and I think the ending could have been constructed better. There was no kind of segue into any kind of closing statement or anything to tie the story ends up that I saw.

But I'm not complaining by any means; it's still nice to have the exposure for the GTA....

Re: The HPP Article Is Here....

Well, I just got through readin it and I liked it, even though the end did kinda leave ya hangin a bit. All in all it was good and I liked it. Oh and I noticed they have takin the " Me and My Pontiac" out of the magazine. I used to enjoy that.

Re: The HPP Article Is Here....

I've got the part one and was waiting for the part two. My subscription to HPP hasn't kicked in yet...still waiting. Guess I'll have to go to B&N to get this month's issue since I haven't seen hide nor hair of it in the mail yet.

Re: The HPP Article Is Here....

I got my HPP in the mail today and the article was great up until the end. I turned the page expecting more, but all there was on the following pages was the timeline. The ending did kind of suck, but the rest of the article was cool. Nice to know that the Gunmetal Metallic was a fond color option.

Re: The HPP Article Is Here....

Me And My Pontiac is still there.
Just near the front, and it's now a few more pages.
Lately, it is with 2 or more cars that the owner's own.
