When the weather acts up, a white convertible top comes to the rescue, protecting the interior while complementing its bright foundation. And overall, this Pontiac conveys a premium sense of collect-ability that, when combined with its spectacular performance, creates a modern classic. ENGINE 5.7L LT1 V8. introduced in 1992 as primary motivation for the C4 Corvette. By 1994, the basic formula of a 2-bolt main block with aluminum heads remained, but the motor had been revised to employ a Mass Airflow Sensor and Sequential Port Fuel Injection. And power was up to 275 horses, which translated to low 14-second quarter mile passes right off the assembly line. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION Peer under this drop-top and you’ll find a clean chassis that’s been preserved via limited road use. Behind the LT1, a requisite 4L60E 4-speed twists torque through highway-friendly, 2.73 gears. Around that drivetrain, a stock suspension follows a double A-arm front half with a 3-link rear end. Power rack-and-pinion steering makes turning a breeze while power-assisted discs bring the car to a quick halt. And everything rolls on body-matched, Trans Am-branded wheels, which still have the original 245/50ZR16 Goodyear Eagle GS-Cs. INTERIOR Powered bright white bucket seats. A leather-clad steering wheel sports thumb controls for a premium sound system. The instrument panel features a large tachometer and speedometer. All the luxuries you’d expect including: Cruise, A/C, power windows, door locks, mirrors and remote keyless entry with GM’s PASSkey theft deterrent system. Everything is in great working order.
