92GP_STE

This is 1 of 57 built in 1992 COPO (verified by PMD), with a 4 cam 3.4L Chevrolet/ M284 West German Getrag 5 speed floor shift transmission ( same drivetrain as Lumina Z34 Coupe ). The sheetmetal is 100% original and is completely straight, never been hit or repaired. Hood louvers from period-correct GTP Coupe, fully functional. Interior is all original except for a steering wheel wrap, shift knob, pedals and dash tach. The car has every possible option except the HUD. Front suspension and steering rack rebuilt, new struts in rear, urethane bushings on stabilizer bars, front lowering springs and Helwig rear stabilizer bar; third alternator and clutch, second power steering and water pump. No restoration has ever been performed except for paint, this a 27 year old original survivor, second owner, since 3Dec 1997. Engine is chipped, K&N filter on hogged out intake box, and Flowmaster exhaust, 221WHP on WinJet dyno on Sunoco Racing gas.

SnoWht95

93 Quad 4 High Output Grand Am GT Sedan in the mix.

Yes, this makes the second of 719 total that remain, and this one is just waiting for a clutch. I drove it home from Philly to Asheville about three months ago

plumcrazy76

1970 Lemans Sport, that I purchased 4 years ago. This car is optioned with a factory 400, 4-barrel carb, dual exhaust, Turbo 400 trans, floor shift center console, posi-traction 3.08 rear end, Rally 2 rims, power steering, front power disc brakes. It is a true survivor/driver with 75,000 original miles. Bought in WI, and has stayed in WI. I have all of the original paperwork, protecto plate, hand written option checklist and car trade in (66 Pontiac). I will never make this a trailer queen or repaint it, 95% original.

BearGFR

Not the best photo of my GTO, but considering the road sign and direction I saw when out cruising, I couldn't resist. 69 GTO, 100% built by yours truly.  Original engine, now stroked to 461 inches with lots of "good stuff" inside.  Moser 9-inch, 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes, Spohn Engineering suspension.  It's an 11-second car at the track.
