I wish I could afford that one of those. Despite the 70'* hp slump I still like then, but thats why Edelbrock and MSD are around for right? I could easily get 300hp out of that 76 and not have more than 2,000 dollars in the motor! So much potential damn the goverment and uncle Sam! Thats when a car was a car!

heh, dad'* first car when he came to Canada was a '76 Grand Prix. Looked like that, but two-door...

I'm assuming it had the 455 also?

Not that one had a 180hp! Don't be mean! Considering the 301 the next year had 135hp! The 180 was potent! Yes a Grand Prix had either a 400 or 455 that year (76). Those mid 70'* car have small amounts of hp but with soem parts then can be as potent as they were 5 years back! (But still no one wants them) Its sad!
