Description

With 18 years of research on the Pontiac Grand Prix, Don Keefe takes the reader on a voyage that covers nearly a half century, from the earliest design sketches of the late 1950s, bringing the concept to market, all production figures to date, to the exciting Grand Prixs of today. Not simply a rosy depiction of the Grand Prix’s history, the author also deals frankly with the darkest days of the 1970s and 1980s, leading to its rebirth as an exciting front-drive sport coupe. Also covered are experimental, showcar, and specialty versions of the Grand Prix.
