    One of the last great Pontiacs there. If I had the space I would grab it to hang onto.

    I'd take the Turbo GP over the Lumina anyday.
    Too bad it would cost as much to ship as the purchase price.

    I was thinking the same thing... Too bad I live on the other side of the country. That GP looks to be in very good shape!
    It's a nice price for a pretty cool weekend cruiser... Someone's going to get a nice bargain.

    Yeah, for me it would be around 2400 miles one way.
    What is the cost per mile of shipping a car these days anyway?

    With fuel prices going crazy over the past few months, I'm really not sure what companies are charging anymore... About two years ago, I had a cousin who shipped his two vehicles from Washington State to New Jersey. If I remember correctly, it cost his company (his job paid for his moving expenses) about $1.10/mile. Who knows how high it would be now?

    When Diesel hit $5/gal a couple years ago it was easy to figure fuel cost. Many rigs get 5mpg so it was litterally costing them $1/mile in fuel costs alone just to operate the trucks.

    I wish I could buy both, put the 3.1 in the Lumina....and adapt the turbo to the 3.4 and put it in the Gran Prix! I live in the Seattle area too, this is very tempting!

    Re: Lovely Grand Prix Turbo for sale!

    Pontiac was so ahead of it's time when it came to in cabin displays and tech. Very few cars at that time had steering wheel audio controls and car info displays. I had the same thing in my 91 Grand Prix when I was 17 and thought it was one of the coolest things ever, although it is rather archaic compared to what is offered today.
