This restored to original 1973 Pontiac Grand Am has won multiple national
awards and been featured on the cover of High Performance Pontiac magazine.
It is probably the best 1973 Grand Am in the world and is one of the most
unique and interesting Pontiacs in the classic car hobby.
Recently frame-off restored, this solid and surprisingly complete first
year Grand Am was originally delivered to Friend Pontiac in Beaver
Pennsylvania. Its European inspired design translates well in correct GM
code 74 Florentine Red on top of bodywork that displays no signs of major
repairs and was undoubtedly very straight before the restoration started.
If you check out the photos closely, you can sight down the cars curvy
flanks and see that there are no ripples in the sheetmetal and panel
alignment is spot-on thanks to factory correct gaps and the 100% original
Pop this cars beaked hood and you'll find an original 400 cubic inch L65
engine that hasn't been torn apart since it left GM's Pontiac Michigan
plant almost 40 years ago. It's an extremely strong running engine which
idles so smoothly and drives so well that the previous owner decided to err
on the side of authenticity and leave it untouched. At the top of the
engine, a satin black air cleaner displays a correct "400-2" decal and
sends air into a correct 2 barrel carburetor that is fed through a correct
AC fuel filter. Below the carburetor, Pontiac's tried and true 400 wears
correct blue paint from its valve covers to its oil pan and displays
correct reproduction decals and chalk marks. On the right side of the
engine, the cars custom Harrison air conditioning system has been restored
to its proper state and includes a correct Frigidaire compressor, and on
the left side of the engine you'll find a fresh brake Booster and master cylinder.
Behind the big 6.5 liter engine you'll find an original turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed transmission that
sends power to a Safe-T-Track Posi-traction rear end with comfortable 3.23
gears. Holding that smooth drivetrain off the ground is an optional special
suspension with the firm ride option which includes computer selected
springs, firmer shocks, taller front spindles that were borrowed from the
F-body, and 1.125 front and .94 rear stabilizer bars. On top of that
serious handling hardware is a variable ratio power steering system that
has good feel and GM's standard power front disc and rear drum braking
system. The cars passive stock Exhaust
has been upgraded to a welded aluminized true dual system that features an
H-pipe and two chamber Flowmaster mufflers. The suspension, steering and
brakes have all been properly maintained and the chassis looks
exceptionally clean given the age and authenticity of the car. At the
corners, great looking 15 inch Pontiac snow flake wheels wear 225/70
Goodyear Eagle GT IIs. However, if you're more of a traditionalist, the
cars original finned hubcaps are included with the sale.
Inside this Pontiac, high style is the name of the game. The original
Oxblood vinyl interior is 100% intact and in spectacular condition with
rich looking Morrokide buckets that include both reclining backs and twist
adjustable lumbar support. The beautifully detailed dashboard houses a
great looking African Crossfire Mahogany gauge pod that contrasts well
against the cars highly detailed gauges and chrome trimmed air vents. At
the center of the dash, controls for the cars custom HVAC system and an
original Stereo Eight 8-track player sit above a pristine console that is
slightly canted toward the driver. At the sides of the seats, the nicely
preserved padded door panels include chrome handles for the doors and
windows next to upscale angled pull straps. The steering wheel is the cars
original optional sport wheel that features bight satin aluminum spokes and
a factory fresh Pontiac branded horn button. The original nylon blend loop
carpet looks great under heavy duty rubber floor mats, and the burgundy
headliner is exceptionally nice with no glaring issues or signs of age.
With the luxury and flair of a European sports sedan and the style and
grunt of a fire breathing American muscle car, this is one old Pontiac that
has personality by the buckets.
Rare 1977 Pontiac Lemans Can Am - 6.6V8 Muscle Car
I thought you might like a look at this very rare 77 Pontiac Lemans Can Am.
Originally, Pontiac had planned to build nearly 5,000 of these cars, but
they ran into some problems with the mold that was used to make the
ducktail spoilers. Instead of fixing the issue, they decided to call a halt
to production. In the end, only 1377 Can Am's were built. They were packing
a 6.6L 400 cu in V8, a Heavy Duty TH400 trans, and the RTS Rally Suspension
Package. The horsepower wasn't amazing
due to the low compression used at this point, but for the late 70's it was
about as good as you could get. They are exceedingly rare and highly
collectible. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

The Pontiac Fiero is a mid-engined sports car that was built by the Pontiac
division of General Motors from 1984 to 1988. The Fiero—meaning "proud"
in Italian and "wild", "fierce", or "ferocious" in Spanish—was designed
by George Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti as a Pontiac sports car. The Fiero
was the first two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to 1938 coupes, and also
the first and only mass-produced mid-engine sports car by a U.S.
manufacturer. Many technologies incorporated in the Fiero design such as
plastic body panels were radical for its time. Alternative names considered
for the car were Sprint, P3000, Pegasus, Fiamma, Sunfire, and Firebird
XP. The Fiero 2M4 (two-seat, Mid-engine, four-cylinder)
was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1984. The 1984 Fiero was
the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 for 1984, beating out the new
1984 Chevrolet Corvette for the honor.
370,168 Fieros were produced over the relatively short production run of
five years; by comparison, 163,000 Toyota MR2s were sold in its first five
years. At the time, its reputation suffered from criticisms over
performance, reliability and safety issues. Today, however, compared to
less adventurous attempts at two-seaters such as the Ford EXP, the unique
style of the Fiero compared to other American cars has left it a cult
following as a collectible car. It remains a popular chassis for rebodies
and electric conversions
Already selling the Corvette, General Motors management and accountants
were opposed to investing in a second two-seater sports car. But in 1979,
during the oil crisis, management saw a market opportunity for a
fuel-efficient sporty commuter car, and design work on the Fiero commenced.
To this end, it was fitted with a fuel efficient version of GM's 2.5 L
four-cylinder "Iron Duke" engine capable of 27 mpg-US (8.7 L/100 km; 32
mpg-imp) in the city and 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the
highway with the economy-ratio transmission option. These figures are U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency test-circuit results, published by Pontiac,
and confirmed from multiple sources. It was impressive mileage for a 2.5
L engine of the period, and still good by today's standards, but the
three-speed automatic reduced highway mileage to only 32 mpg-US (7.4 L/100
km; 38 mpg-imp). With respect to fuel economy, the Fiero would appeal to a
market niche for which the Corvette with its V8 engine was unsuitable.
1987 saw changes to the front and rear fascias on the "base coupe" with the
SE and GT models keeping the same "Aero" nose. The new non-aero noses lost
the black bumper pads of the earlier models and had a smoother look. The
four-cylinder engine's power rating increased to 98 hp (73 kW) with some
major modifications which included a roller cam, redesigned intake
manifold, distributorless ignition system (DIS), open combustion chamber
cylinder head and upgraded throttle-body fuel injection system. This was
the last year for the spin-on oil filter on the four-cylinder. The car was
offered in Bright Metallic Blue and replacing the ribbed black molding was
the round style found on the GT models. As a side note, the SE models
retained the ribbed molding, and added the aero nose found on the GT.
Redesigned headlight motors appeared in 1987. Additionally, starting with
the 1987 model Pontiac dealerships offered an upgrade in the form of an
"option" that changed the original body to a Ferrari-type body, called the
Fiero Mera. While technically a "kit", the change in body style was offered
only on new Fieros and is considered a class of car in its own right. There
was a limited production of Fiero Meras made however, as the company that
produced them, Corporate Concepts, was sued by Ferrari and ordered to stop.

HUGE Fiero Compilation , 250+ Pics
*Guys, Thanks so much for the 50,000 views! Please leave comments if you
want, I try to answer all the ones I can.
I collected all these photos for myself when I had my Fiero because each
picture inspired me in some way, never thought putting them in a slide show
would get people watching. If you know anyone with a Fiero, lead them here
so they can get some inspiration/ideas about theirs too.
