Pontiac Can Am (1977)

Refusing to let go of the notion that people liked their muscle cars, Pontiac developed the Cam Am in 1977 by dropping their 400ci (6,554cc) V8 engine Into the Le Mans. The limited-edition car had just 3,177 models made, but they were great performers in their day. While the suspension was conventional, coming from I lie Le Mans, the Can Am received the RTS (Radial Tuned Suspension) package, and III is included stiffer springs and shocks, front and rear anti-roll bars, and steel belted radial tyres. If sold in California the engine was the 185bhp (138kW) 403ci (6.6-liter) Oldsmobile V8, though everywhere else got the W-72 code high-output 100ci (6.5-liter) Pontiac V8 with dual-plane intake manifold and four-barrel carburettor. Inside, the dash housed multiple circular gauges and enclosed the driver. The three-spoke wheel and bucket seats boasted sporting intentions.
