$11,500 can buy quite a bit of car. Perusing local listings makes the dollar amount fairly significant and can net some powerful, rare or quirky finds. Does it warrant a 1992 Pontiac Grand Prix with only 40,000 some miles on the odometer? That’s debatable.
This 1992 Grand Prix happens to be a Richard Petty Edition. Pontiac built just 1,000 of these cars and this one has been meticulously kept. We’ll give the seller that. However, is there such a market for these cars? At $11,500, the 1992 Grand Prix never really offered anything extraordinary.
The engine can be found in a plethora of other GM products from the time; the body panels give way to nearly identical W-body design—did you know the W-body only ceased production last year?—from Chevrolet, Buick and Oldsmobile; and the interior is comprised of typical GM parts bin quality from the 1990s. The decade wasn’t particularly good to the General.
So, when the seller says “rare,” we suppose that’s a valid statement. However, Richard Petty’s biggest fans will likely be the only shoppers to seek out this car.
