more than likely it is your starter telling you "hey bud, yeah its time"

My 99 was doing the same thing. Turned out to be a bad starter. Replaced it and took some pics along the way. You can see them at the following link.

Can you install a Pontiac 400 into your 1981 Chevy Elcamino?

Yes, many have swapped them into Grand Prix's and Lemans' of the same year. You will need the motor mounts for the Pontiac V8, and the transmission must match the Pontiac bellhousing (it is not the same as the Chevy pattern). Other minor issues may creep up such as throttle linkage, wiring (starter is on the opposite side), exhaust (I believe the Pontiac manifolds will clear the frame), but the are not insurmountable.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT with a starter problem. I do believe that it's not my starter that is bad it's the starter clyenoid. It will start up halfway then die. I have power to all else...?

What do you mean it will start up half way? If the car will start then it can't possibly be a problem with your solenoid. If the solenoid is bad then the car would not start at all. If you hear just a clicking noise then that means your solenoid is fine but that the starter itself is malfunctioning or that there is not ample power to turn the starter over once the solenoid has engaged. One other problem could be high resistance in the wire that connects direct battery power over to the starter.
