Though Buick V-6 faithful are probably loading red-hot Garrett turbochargers filled with boiling gear oil into catapults aimed at Vermont as they read this, the first thing we thought about while gazing upon this burgundy-on-burgundy 1981 Pontiac Grand Prix was removing the aspirated 110-horsepower V-6 luncheon loafer and shoehorning in a supercharged 556-horsepower GM eRod LS3. Adding some manner of bulletproof five-speed manual transmission and indestructible rear differential would result in a 50-state legal full-size intermediate that Pontiac never built, with scads of horsepower in a stylish package that still bears the GM Mark of Excellence. Besides. We love the smell of vintage burgundy leather and tire smoke in the morning. Even leaving this deluxe Pontiac Grand Prix SJ factory-stock should slake your thirst for Eighties burgundy from this life into the next. From the seller’s description:
