To think that this car was built by an average guy and his friends in a garage is mind blowing. It’s pro level from top to bottom, it’s amazingly well sorted, and it kicks ass in a straight line AND on an autocross course. This is owner/builder Bob Bertelsen’s third award winning car. Each build […]

I have a passion for the 1978-1980 Pontiac Grand Prix’s, mostly because I had a 1978 that was this color. You don’t find very many examples of the 1978-1980 Grand Prix’s, and this one is beautiful. This 1980 Grand Prix LJ has been modified with a 400 CID Pontiac V-8 with #62 heads, Edelbrock Performer […]

1978 brought a downsizing of the Pontiac Grand Prix and other G-Body cars. The 1978-1979 Pontiac Grand Prix came with a standard 3-speed manual with the 231 CID V-6, although most were sold with the optional automatic transmission. These cars came with an optional 301 CID V-8 (305 CID in California) with either a 2bbl […]

When stuntman-turned-director Hal Needham was planning the film “Smokey and the Bandit,” he envisioned a low-budget “B movie” with a production cost of $1 million.

Probably the most bizarre custom Pontiac ever built is Rick Dobbertin’s J2000. In 1986, Rick Dobbertin shocked the community and created a seismic rumble like no Pro Street car had ever done before.  The J2000 accomplished that goal by immediately polarizing opinions—you either loved it or hated it. The car demanded you take a stand. […]
