imo the only thing that makes it look dated is the grille, didnt se'* have the ones that lit up across the whole front, my friends does, and it makes a world of difference in looks.... find some taillights that are checkered for it too and it will look alot better

My wife'* previous car was a black 88 Grand Prix SE Coupe, 2.8 V6 (console shift, not column), with those exact same wheels. We bought it around 1995 with 144,000 miles on it. I put a new engine and transaxle in it a couple years later. We had to re-do most of the interior (headliner, etc) but it was a nice, fast, sporty ride. I sold it to a friend who still drives it, we got a 4 door 2001 Grand Prix GT when we started planning for kids. 1 kid later, all is well. I wish I had pics of the 88. That was a nice car.

Good work keeping yours looking nice and running!

Nice Pics...

That 90 GP should have a 3T40( THM-125 ) or a 4T60( THM440-T4 )... Does it have (OD)?

Nope... There was no 4T40, I later years with the N bodies and I think J bodies, used the 4T40-E...

But that Grand Prix you have uses the 4T60 with the GX3 or 3.33 gear ratio... I remember doing a few burnouts in one...lol...

Its strange I have seen these w bodies with the 3T40 and the 4T60, I think the 4 speed OD trans was an option..

That GP looks to be in good shape for it age too

Your right the Quad Four motor was standard with the 3spd auto, and 3.1 w/ the 4T60 or the 5spd stick. It has a 3.33:1 axle? Whoaaa I never knew that!

Yeah it has the 3.33 ratio... The 2.97 and or the 2.84 would have been a bit to heavy for the 3.1... The GP did have some gearth to it...

But I'll bet if you floored it from a standstill you could get to spin...
