1972 Pontiac Le MansReview

Loudest Luxo-cruiser In Atlanta —

My first car was a 1972 Luxury LeMans I bought it from a gentleman who had just taken off of display in a vintage car museum. He sold it to me when I was 15 for the sum of $5500 dollars. Whether or not it was actually worth that much is a moot point. It was perfect, and every bit original. From the paint to the vinyl top to the sofa sized bench seats, the damn thing looked brand new. Being a testosterone driven adolescent male, I drove the car a bit two fast down a gravel road and crunched up the gorgeous chrome bumper on the front side. I cried. Anyway, now that the car was no longer pristine i could give it my own little flair. I lowered it an inch to bring more attention to it's ridiculous wheel covers, then i added a set of Hooker header's and a couple glasspacks. Then I built a custom, removable sound system to further bother those around me. (people in my town are very prim and proper, my car was more or less a chance to retaliate) The car still takes me back to a time when I didn't actually exist. If you sit in it you will get the same feeling.

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,

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Lots of power, great  quality the  materials  inside and out the plastic look like is made for ever, the 400 engine  has minor mods, cam, HEI distribuitor, and a decent dual exhaus and  the carburatoof a school bus ( 2barrel 2gv rochester) and thats it. It releses all my  stress .

Cons: Lots of hi temperature  inside and noise and high ultrasonic vibration that make you see doble,  fuel odor every where had to park outside the  garage due to  wife complain.
