It Is Going To Cost A Arm And A Leg To Detail To Perfection. :) — The Pontiac Grand Am GT has a nice smooth ride to it. The color is a awesome Metallic Orange with a hint of Red. Also, it is the Ram Air series, so you can put a lot of detail into it. The car has a minimum maintenance to it, because of it being a low rider and have to watch out for curves and parking stalls. You don't want to scratch any paint off the bottom, Right.

Pros

Torque...steering...body stlying

Cons

Interior...radio...carpet...headlamps...backseats...

Pontiac Grandam — Amazing torque...but not too powerful for the front wheel drive system. Interior is lacking compaired to most modern cars. So beautiful in the corners though, even when the back wheels slip out from behind you. All it takes is a little skill and a flick of the wrist to bring you back from the pearly gates.

Fun To Drive, Great For First Car And Quick Commuting And Track Days — Runs nicely, has never needed any major repairs, gets great fuel economy for the size and power, very fast and light car for its class, extremely fun to drive. It is a great tuner car for. Would highly recommend the v6 with the GT trim package.

Dependable — I liked everything about the car. Stereo sounds good for factory stereo. It has good get up and go engine. It rides real smooth on the road and there is a lot of leg room for the people in the back seat.

Pros

better HP for chep, wheel asembly breakaway

Cons

head lights, and trany dip stick

55

04 Grand Am Se1 — after some slight modifying (K&N air filter and cherry bomb glass pack) it has some good take of and will sqeal the tires at 1200 RPM's. they made the front wheel asembly out of some weaker meatls so if u come close to fliping it when u put it sideway it will snap. one bad thing they did was put the head lights on one pice that runs the wideth of the car so in order for u to repleace the head lights u have to remove the front bumper. there is no dipstick for the trany fluide.

Pros

Reliable and looks good

Cons

not enough power for me lol

35

Sc/t — Just wish it was a manual with alittle more power. Like the SC/T concept. Supercharged 6 speed woulda been nice from the factory. Appearance wise they did a good job. Performance can top a GTP my main liking for the 3400 over the 3800

Great Starter Car — This is my very first car which I plan to keep for as long as possible, and "upgrade" it be more personal or mine. I use this car to get to school, work, and for just driving around. Great brand, and just overall a great vehicle.

Pros

Just a fun car to drive. It has really been a throw back to the old days of driving for the sake of driving.

Cons

I have never been a fan of front wheel drive.

I Call This One The "poor Man's Gto". — It's interesting that the Rally Racing hood changes the appearance & the feel of driving the car so much. Without it - it is just another little car, with it driving through the Arkansas hills; it’s a road course in NASCAR that will get you in trouble.
