 I found this highly optioned 66 Pontiac Bonneville 2 door hardtop with a Brougham package in a barn!  It had been parked for many, many years! 

Someone is going to get an amazing survivor!

    It has a 389 CI 325HP 4 barrel V8 engine, turbo 400 automatic transmission, 10 bolt rear end.

Options include:
 power antenna (works!)
6 way power front seat (works!)
rear window defogger (works!)
reverberator for the radio (works!)
oil and temperature gauges (they both work!)
excellent power steering and brakes
tilt steering column
remote control drivers outside rear view mirror
Front and rear fold down center armrests
(part of the upscale Brougham package)
Under hood and trunk removable lights on reels (works!)

The Brougham package included many upgrades including cloth upholstery and upscale trim.

    It is all there and complete, front fenders are rust free and straight, floor pan is solid and rust free, doors are rust free, rear quarters have had some work done on them at some point in the past but I see no evidence of any rust.  Original everything! Including the paint.

All the stainless is still on the car and looks great!  The rear bumper has peeling, the front is in fair condition.

The filler panel beneath the rear window that was covered by the vinyl top had rust but was repaired and the trunk pan has rust. The  upholstery, headliner, vinyl top and dash pad are in desperate need of repair/replacement.

The engine runs smooth and strong, the transmission shifts properly and goes down the road very nicely.

The pictures really tell the story, don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have.

General Lee takes on Bandit T/A in classic Hollywood car showdown [w/poll]

Fri, 26 Aug 2011 12:31:00 EST

You don't have to be born in the 1960s or 1970s to be able to recognize the General Lee from The Dukes of Hazzard and the Pontiac Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit. These old school four-wheeled stars seem to transcend demographics thanks to the miles of film that show the orange 1969 Dodge Charger and the jet-black 1977 Pontiac Trans Am performing seemingly impossible stunts.
The folks at Hot Rod magazine are obviously hip to this fact, and they put together a fun video in tribute of the instantly recognizable duo. Hit the jump to watch on as Sam Young and James Smith replace Bo Duke and The Bandit for a bit of dirt-road shenanigans in a pair of otherwise well cared for classics. We're not so sure we'd call it the best chase scene ever, but it sure looks like a lot of fun.
More importantly, which of these two cars would you rather own? Have your say in our poll below.

This 1927 Oakland is a minimalist hot rod

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 16:57:00 EST

There are hundreds of American automakers that sprung up during the dawn of the automotive era, only to fold into obscurity or get gobbled up by what would eventually become the Big Four (yes, we're counting AMC here). Oakland is one such company, which was the forbearer for General Motors' Pontiac division. Sold until 1931, you simply don't see Oakland-badged cars anymore. Unless, that is, you know Brian Bent.
Bent drives a 1927 Oakland that still rides on wooden wheels. Its original wooden wheels, from the sound of it. That makes this anachronist and his Oakland the perfect subject for a Petrolicious video. Like many of the cars highlighted by Petrolicious, this old Oakland has had some work done to it, featuring a Pontiac flathead engine that's been pushed forward and a clutch pack built by Bent.
Take a look below for a closer look at this rare and fascinating Oakland.

GM knew about fatal Chevy ignition problem decade before recall

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 10:15:00 EST

Well, this is not good for General Motors. Following a report last week that GM was recalling 778,000 Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 compacts over concerns that the ignition could switch out of the "run" position without warning, USA Today reports that the Detroit-based behemoth knew about the issue, which affected 2005 to 2007 Cobalts (the Cobalt shown above and in the gallery is from 2010) and 2007 Pontiac G5s, all the way back in 2004.
The information comes from a deposition in a civil lawsuit against GM, obtained by USA Today, which claims that a GM engineer experienced the issue while the then-new model was undergoing testing. The issue was "solved" when a technical service bulletin was issued in 2005, informing dealers to install a snap-on key cover on the cars of customers who complained about the issue. According to the Cobalt's program engineering manager, Gary Altman, the cover was an "improvement, it was not a fix to the issue."
The case where the depositions were made was from 2010, and involved Brooke Melton, a 29-year-old pediatric nurse in Georgia who was killed on her birthday. At the time, police claimed she was going too fast on a wet, rural road, although it later came out through the black box that her car's ignition had come out of the "run" position at least three seconds before the accident (the max amount of time a black box records before a wreck), disabling her airbags, power steering and anti-lock brakes. According to USA Today, police said Melton was "traveling too fast for the roadway conditions," although it's impossible to know if she'd have been in the wreck, which injured the occupants of another vehicle, had her 2005 Chevy not shut off. GM settled the Melton family's case, although the details remain confidential.
