RE: August 2008 Feature Car


Ray, when these cars were new to 15 years old, we NEVER thought they would be collector cars. Same goes for the Trans Ams of the 70's. Look at them now. Never say never.

I will admit I never thought of a 73-77 A body as collectible. The only one I think I ever owned was the Grand Am 455, and I bought it because it was cheap and had very impressive peeling capability! I used to think it was ugly. Shame on me.....

I guess they were like the Rodney Dangerfield of Pontiacs, "don't get no respect". Would I have a 70 GTO in my driveway...in a second but I have this car because it means something to me. If it becomes a collectible that's just a bonus. Looking back at them now they were so radically different from the previous generation in style but look at the swoops and curves on it, kinda sexy don't you think?
