About “Atlantis blue”

My sister bought this car new for from the local Pontiac,GM dealer (Pruitt Motor Company 319 East Commerce St. in Morrilton AR) back in 1979. She kept it until selling the car to me in 2004 It has 71,000 miles on it.She didn't have a garage to park it in so all the interior parts, seats and paint showed thier wear and tear. I have restored this car back to it's "glory days" New atlantis blue paint and light blue interior, just the way it came from the factory.This is what the car looks like now. Check out the Albums below to see what all has been done to this car.
