We Build Excitement: 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP ASC McLaren Turbo

The '90s was an awesome time if you were a Pontiac fan who loved to cruise to his local dealer and check out the GM badge engineered junk that was covered in Pontiac specific plastic body cladding.  If that wasn't rad enough, you could dig deeper into your pocketbook and buy a Pontiac that had engineering provided by McLaren.  WHOA!  It'll be the ride of your life with an injection of British supercar engineering by McLaren...oh..wait...ASC (American Sunroof Corp)-McLaren of Detroit isn't the same as McLaren Automotive from something-shire out of the UK.  Still...I bet you can't find a McLaren that has that much unnecessary venting for less money. Find this 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP ASC McLaren Turbo offered for $8000 in Mountain View, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.

  3. Looks like the "By Owner" note isn't serious... but the same seller appears to have a 1968 Toyopet for sale in the background. Interesting. Couldn't find that one on Craiglist though.

  4. What is with that Caddy Longroof?

  5. This would be a bananas Radwood Rig...Dat interior doe!
