Ahh, I remember them well. First one I ever saw I passed about two in the morning on a two lane road in my '67 Malibu. Didn't notice it until I got along side it and saw "SHERIFF" emblazoned across the door. I braked and dropped in right back behind him.
I knew the guy who did the service work on them. The '77's were all autos but the '79's were four speeds. Only way to still get the Pontiac motors.
They weren't all that fast. The stick cars would only run about a buck twenty. Autos 130 or so. I know many folks who bested them in contests of speed.

The last couple of pics are one that somebody found a few years ago. Plans are to restore it.

The Pontiac LeMans's in the background were highly modified. They would fly!
