      The Sundowner package was Ford's answer to the Sandman. There was a Falcon Panel Van version as well. It looks interestingly close to the Pinto package posted in this thread. Same Bubble windows etc. Australia got Sandpiper cars as well.

      Much as I hated the 70s for soul-sucking trade of performance for appearance, I am truly enjoying this thread. The more I dig, the more I find and the more I laugh. Some of this stuff is truly great.

      Browsing Stangnet.nl turned up quite a few gems.

      Ford's Pinto, Maverick and Mustang Sprints.

      That was a heckuva post and I was sitting there scrolling, drooling... dreaming and then suddenly...

      1979 AMX

      Damn. That was harsh return to reality. Seriously, a little warning next time.

      Yeah, that's a crappy AMX. How about a nicer one?








      And some more factory-custom van goodness:

      You guys are wrong about the AMX. I would pimp one hard with louvers on the rear hatch. Drop in a 390 or 401 and these little cars are crazy fast.

      I wasn't dumping on the AMX, though I would be lying if I said I preferred it over an original AMX.

      I was merely stating that its juxtaposition after all the BMW greatness was a tad jarring. Kind of a Crying Game surprise, if you will.

      It caught me with my guard down, is all.

      He got rid of it a few years later. Would have loved to have fixed that thing up!

      The oldest cars in the family I can remember from growing up (sadly, not my pics):

      1978 Pontiac Grand Prix. Ours got Lemon Law'd...



      ... so my folks then bought a 1979 Buick Riviera. Wire wheels and half-vinyl tops FTW!





      OT but I wonder if Buick will resurrect the "Riviera" name, and if so, on what (US) model?

      Monza Spyder

      1977 Monza Spyder Hatchback CoupeThe Spyder nameplate was originally used to designate the 1962-1964 Corvair turbocharged model. The 'Spyder' name was introduced for the Chevrolet Monza in 1976. This package included performance equipment and some small appearance items. The Monza Spyder Equipment package was available on all 2+2 Hatchbacks and Monza Towne Coupes (with 'Sport Equipment' package) with 5-speed manual and Turbo Hydra-matic automatic transmissions. The Spyder Equipment package included 2-barrel, Dura-Built 2.3 litre engine, floor console unit, large front/rear stabilizer bars, special shock absorbers, steel-belted radial ply blackwall tires, wheel opening mouldings (chrome), Day-Night inside mirror, Sport Steering Wheel (2-spoke wheel), Special instrumentation and 'stitched' instrument panel pad with added wood-grain vinyl accents (standard on 2+2), Distinctive "Spyder" identification (script fender emblems, steering wheel horn button insert and Spyder front facia and rear-lock cover)

      Chevrolet made extensive changes to the Spyder package including separate Equipment and Appearance packages with separate RPO codes found on the build sheet. The Spyder Equipment Package was regular production option (RPO) Z01, while the Spyder Appearance Package was RPO Z02. The Spyder packages were available on Monza 2+2 Sport Hatchback. Spyder decal colors were determined by the body color of the Monza ordered. There were 4 color combinations for 1977. For 79, there were 6 combos, which included a green and a blue color scheme.

      Z01 - Spyder Equipment

      -- BR70-13C Steel-belted radial ply blackwall tires, Sport suspension, Sport Steering Wheel (2-spoke wheel), Center Console, Inside day/night rearview mirror, Spyder identification, Wheel opening moldings (available if the Z02 - Spyder Appearance Package was not ordered), Dual tailpipe system and white lettered tires were available in 1979.


      1977 Monza Spyder Hatchback CoupeZ02 - Spyder Appearance -- Black highlights on front, side and rear of body headlight openings, parking light openings, windshield, rear window and side window moldings, body sill, door and center pillar louvers, rear end panel - (bright window moldings with black exterior), Black or gold rear accents (taillight blackouts and rear end panel decals), Body color front air dam and rear spoiler, Spyder emblems (front facia, rear lock cover and sport steering wheel horn button insert), Body side stripes with Spyder lettering in red, white or gold depending on body color, Black painted styled-steel wheels with trim rings and center caps, Black sport mirrors, Special hood decal and rear spoiler decal.

      For the 1980 model year, Chevrolet combined the Spyder Equipment and Appearance packages into one Spyder Equipment package with an RPO code of Z29 and included newly re-designed bold Spyder side decals and a new front air dam that blends into the front fender wheel openings. Spyder decal color choices (five) were based primarily upon the interior color specified rather than the body color as in previous years.

      Z29 - Spyder Equipment Package -- BR70-13C steel-belted radial ply blackwall tires (with option for raised white lettering), Sport suspension, Black front and rear bumper rub strips, Black headlights frames, Black windshield, belt, side and rear window moldings (not available with black exterior), Black painted body sill (also not available with black exterior), Black door and center pillar louvers, Black painted taillight frames, Body color front air dam and rear spoiler, Spyder emblems on front facia, rear lock cover and sport steering wheel (horn button insert), Black sport mirrors (LH remote, RH manual), Rear Spoiler and body stripes with Spyder lettering outlined in accent body colour, Spyder hood decal, Black painted Rally II wheels with bright trim rings and center caps.[13]

      A total 731,504 Monzas were produced in six model years.[1]

      No, I think that title belongs to the 1971 'Cuda and it's so-called "billboard" decal (complete with integrated engine callout):
