Lots of work to do, and I’ll likely not get to it for awhile, but I had to save this 1978 Grand Am from becoming a racecar...

The Pontiacs definitely had the best/coolest gauge cluster. :)

Looks pretty good. Good for you for saving it. How are the body & frame? Looks like its got some nice options as well. What's under the hood? 301?

thank you for saving it! if that right side pod is a tach, save it! those IIRC are a one year only item, and highly sought after...

the car looks rough, but def saveable,,,, somehow it just looks right with the aluminum slots and spinners!

I really like the looks of the Grandam's. It looks pretty rust free. I like the Black and Gold factory paint. I also liked the sporty Pontiac interiors from those years.

Nice find. As stated, well optioned too. Please don't spend the next 2 years of your life changing it from a landau to a hard top lol..
