1980 Pontiac Trans Am

From John Gunnell’s book “75 Years of Pontiac Oakland“:

“Pontiac’s business suffered quite a bit. Sales executives cringed as assemblies of cars built in 1980 plummeted to 770,821 units.”

“Pontiac has a 29-model lineup arranged in six basic series marketed the year before. Changes were generally of the cosmetic type. Firebirds has less “horses”, fewer gearbox options and practically no other variations. There was a turbo option ($530) offered on the 301 c.i. V-8 and required air conditioning and included dual resonators and tailpipes.”

William Hogland became PMD’s general manager.”
