buy a 01 Z28/SS Maro, or Bird. It would be cheaper in the long run.

You need to convert it to RWD, make a new rear-end, Need a new suspension system, need to beef up the frame, need to relocate the gas tank in the trunk, need to cut out part of your firewall, need a new gauge cluster and new computer system, etc.

Grand totaly? Extremely lowball estimate, $10,000 actual cost, probably $20-30,000.

first you buy a complete Trans Am, then you pop off the shell and pop on a grand am shell, just like Hot Wheels cars.

Uhh, that second "GA" is a GP, the headlights and radiator grill give it away

Eh, i like the SE look, but more than that, I love the giant rear slicks on that thing, the rear dual slicks are sweet too

9.114 second 1/4 mile......2004 IHRA time, at Ohio I believe

Pontiac Grand-Am built by F.J. Smith Performance Specialties (Cayuga, ON) ran in GT/BA class in 1998. New engine program for 1999 will put car in GT/AA. 350 CID engine built by Gary Hettler of Montoursville, PA. is factory rated at 300 HP. Car features A.T.I. transmission and converter.
