43 Years Old Car Still Running Without Major Overhauls — Can't complain, have had the car for over 43 year. One off-body restoration in 1992. Still running fine, only put an average of 13 miles a month on it to keep it running. Has many Olds 442 parts added including 4-on-the-floor

Simple Vulgar Display Of Non Gto Power! — It only gives you 9 to 12 mpg , you get very hard talk from ecofrendly guys every day, its hard to drive there no ABS brakes, electronic control or air bag, you really need to put attencion on the vehicle to handle it, when you get wide open trotle its scary you can feel the car chassis twist and soo your guts! That 400 pontiac engine was a fine machine it really haves it racing heritage from the 60s catalina389c.i. (in a small way) , i alway had pontiacs that had gm corp 350 from the 80s a.d 90s and i thougth they had power..... i was dead wrong,

I Should Have Gotten The Base 455 V -8 Engine Instead Of The Ho With This Car. — I owned a new 1972 Pontiac LeMans with a 455HO engine. It was red with honeycomb mags and tan bucked seats. It had great power and looks, but I had it back to the dealer numerous times with engine problems.

It Is Awesome — It is awesome it will get right up and go if you can grab traction and keep the front wheels on the ground. it was completely redone when my dad got the car and we put the engine in it.

Awesome! — I bought a '72 LeMans when I was 16, lost it when I went in the Army and 25 years later I found another one like it. Only, my latest has buckets, a/c, and a 400/400T instead of a 350/350T. It drives so smooth, handles like a dream, and has plenty of torque. I drove it from Nebraska to Missouri (600mi) and got 15.7 mpg.
