Default Canadian 1979 Pontiac GrandPrix SJ

Everyone it's taken a while to post pictures of my GP. Please let me know what you think.
I am the original owner, and purchased this car in my early 20's. The last 3 years I've modified the car to make it handle and stop like a modern late model car.
I started by installing a Edelbrock Pro-toring suspension kit. Eibach springs lowered the car 1 inch. & Edelbrock IAS shocks.
I found the ride very hard.
I switched to Detroit Speed adjustable coil overs front & rear. Lowered the car 21/4 inches to give it the right stance. Installed frame braces front & rear. Brakes are upgrades to Baer SS4 disc front & rear. Also upgraded the steering by installing a Detroit Speed 600 series steering box.
Car now rides like a dream & stops on a dine.
