Default Pontiac Muscle Car Thread!

My wife owned 4 , and only drove Pontiac for 20 years. When we met, she had a Grand Am in Silver( in 2001, she was driving a Y2K) in 03 she got one in black( a Grand Am GT), and in 07 she got a G6GT. Before she met me she had a sunfire...then after GM's crash they were reluctant to extend credit to folks an were not even doing consumer leases for awhile, that's when we switched to Ford, with a blue 2007 Focus 4Dr. And then in Dec. of 11 we got the 12 Escape...

My first car was a minty '64 Bonneville Convertible Coupe.

Think GTO with all the power options.

Had two speeds:

1.-Very fast

2.-Time travel- which was like flushing the toilet- took four or five gallons.


You could literally run and gun off a full tank in a couple hours. Of course,

gas was less than a buck a gallon back then...

IN 69 my moms car was a 1969 Grad Prix Model J with the 428 HO motor and the 400 turbo automatic tranny. That was one Bad azz M'FER. For a grocery getter

You can thank John Z. For that... Until then it was GM's "old lady car division"

I remember a 61 Pontiac I drove a lot back when I was 18, The year was 1970 and the car belonged to a friend of mine. He always wanted to trade it for my bike for a day or 2. That was my introduction to a Pontiac. It had a lot of power but couldn't pass a gas station. I remember having the speedo past the end by a long shot, I must have been doing around 130 at the time. Of course back then their wasn't hardly any of the traffic like their is now days. It was white like this one. And it was one bad car.

i am into Trans Ams, and Formulas big time and have owned quite a few over the years.

now, the first generation Trans Ams were a huge hit and due to the low number of those being made in 1969, they are highly desired today.

689 T/A coupes and 8 T/A convertibles made in 1969. of those 8 convertibles, 4 were automatics, and 4 were manuals. which makes the convertibles the rare ones of a low production to begin with.
