Can AM Credentials
Phoenix Graphix announces a GM-licensed decal kit for the limited-edition '77 Pontiac Can Am. It features 15 three-color premolded stripes, 7 four-color "Can Am" names, and 10 large lower blackout decals, just like the factory graphics kit. According to Phoenix Graphix, "This Can Am Kit is the best-quality product to become available since [the decals] were discontinued from the factory. They're silk-screened and UV-coated, producing a long-lasting, high-gloss product. The best materials have been used to provide a user-complete GM Restoration Parts decal kit; the colors and design are identical to the factory originals; templates and positioning tabs have been implemented for ease of application; and only a limited quantity have been produced."The price for the full kit is $415. You can also purchase the decals without the blackouts, or the blackouts and names separately. Phoenix Graphix; (800) 941-4550; www.phoenixgraphix.com.
